    Like the Metroid titles that inspired it, the music, graphics, and world/enemy design are more than worth revisiting a few times a year. This may be Renegade Kid's best game yet, despite its relatively short length.

    A bite-sized Metroid-like experience, Xeodrifter is a fun, exploration-heavy adventure from start to finish.

    What's remarkable about it all is that Xeodrifter crams this much into only a few hours.

    I encourage everyone to give this title a download, though, as it’s an absolute blast to play, despite its shortcomings.

    Xeodrifter offers a metroidvania -like experience entertaining and complete. A retro game that is rather short but with good qualities for fans of 2D action-platforming.

    Xeodrifter is engaging and fun, a solid adventure very enjoyable on 3DS that lacks something that makes it truly unique.

    If you’re really hungry for a metroidvania but you expect something more than “some indie jam stuff” go for a much better Axiom Verge. [09/2015, p.69]

It creates a sense of mystery and makes you want to explore its interesting game world. It's a great albeit short adventure that will at the very least hold you until a new 2D Metroid arrives. Expand
