First Impressions: Iconoclasts

There's a good possibility I suffer from seasonal affective disorder because a rush of happinesss overwhelms me whenever I see brightly coloured games. Today's shot of serotonin is called Iconoclasts, a platformer with simple puzzle elements by Joakim Sandberg.

My short time (10 minutes because I have the attention of a guava fruit) with Iconoclasts left a smile on my face. It reminds me of Cave Story and  Ratchet and Clank because it's so graphically crisp. One game play mechanic that surprised me was the auto aim feature of your first gun. It is a welcome change as I've been torturing myself with Dark Souls 2. Go play Xeodrifter or They Bleed Pixels if you are looking for a punishing 2D platformer.

Iconoclasts will be going on my 2016 radar. Give the game some love and try the playable at http://www.konjak.org/

Pros

  • metrovania like gameplay

  • colourful 2D graphics

  • puzzle elements

  • platforming like a pro

  • auto aim

Cons

  • it's not out yet

Iconocast is currently in development for Windows, PS4, and PS Vita.
