May 19, 2013Very tense and compelling top-down shooter. It has a survival horror feel to it with scarce resources and plenty of enemies. The difficulty is high, with permadeath and only being able to save at the end of a level. I would highly recommend this game if you like fast paced, tense action and difficult games that reward fast reflexes and resource management.
Jul 26, 2013Retro aesthetic, subtle atmosphere, satisfying gunplay, unforgiving difficulty. Patient and careful exploration will reward you with items to craft advance weapons, but twitchy, adrenaline-intense combat execution will keep you alive. It's not for everyone, so try out the demo first. Personally, I fell in love after playing the demo and immediately bought myself a copy.
Jun 29, 2013Man, I love this game! Teleglitch isn't exactly a household name, but those of us in the know are privy to a decidedly pixelicious, almost rogue like, top-down survival shooter. And I for one, absolutely adore it. If retro aesthetics and wonderfully simplistic survival-based shooting is your thing (of course it is, right?), I reckon you will too. For everyone else, just give this game a try. What have you got to lose?!
9 out of 10 all day long!
[SIDE NOTE]: If developers Johamm & Mihkel Tael happen to ever see this, please guys, look into bringing this wonderful game to a much wider demographic than *just* the PC crowd. If ever a largely unknown indie title deserved a shot at the big time, it's Teleglitch. Especially so with the new 'Die More Edition'.
To be perfectly honest, I've always been more of a handheld gaming enthusiast, so yes, it goes without saying that I'd love to see Teleglitch go handheld. Moreover, with Sony's excellent 'PS Hearts Devs' indie drive, what better device than Paystation Vita huh? Perhaps with a dash of cross-buy-tastic PS3 (or even PS4) support thrown in for good measure!
The convenience of iOS would probably be pretty cool for some, but personally speaking, I'm really not a fan of virtual touchscreen controls, and with Nintendo's 3DS heavily weighted towards 'games for all the family', Vita is definitely where it's at for me!… Expand
