    Explore the abyss!

    Earth, 3024.

    Natural resources are scarce and the survival of the human race is in danger. Desperate to find new energy resources, the ASAN creates a biomechanical robot called Nep2no that is capable of withstanding extreme depths in the hope of finding new energy sources. After many years of exploration, a new energy source is found, code named "Gaia".

    Your mission will be to find the "Gaia" energy stones by exploring the depths. To do so, you must control Nep2no by counteracting gravity and the surrounding darkness with the aid of a Light that will go out little by little.

    Abyss is a small game with limited appeal: tight, difficult controls, a grainy aesthetic, and not much variety in gameplay outside “get to the end of the level.”

    Engaging and very atmospheric adventure recreated from Nintendo DS to Wii U. Relaxing, challenging and fun to play.

    This HD version of Abyss features some new missions, remastered graphics and the same hardcore gameplay of the original game.

    Abyss is a quiet anthem to the feeling of excruciating difficulty that went hand-in-hand with so many games from more than two decades ago, a minimalist effort designed to lure the players and make them die a thousand times before they reach a simple, yet very satisfying triumph.

    It is unfortunate that the difficulty curve is very high, because despite having a fairly simple mechanics it can satisfy minimally.

    Abyss is as “OK” as a game gets. Presentation and gameplay-wise, it’s very unmemorable, and there’s not really any particularly reason for recommending this eShop purchase, save for its very low price.

    Personally I enjoyed the concept and even the art work of this game, and for less than 2 pound (which I what it should be worth) you cant goPersonally I enjoyed the concept and even the art work of this game, and for less than 2 pound (which I what it should be worth) you cant go wrong. It just lacks any depth to make it a classic even a cult classic. If your bored out of your mind and have a few pounds in your Nintendo wallet buy this game. In reality though in the end it left me with a feeling of mediocrity, not even close to being a good indie title but if you are a video game addict like me and enjoy a challenge go for this game Expand
