    The main hook in Black Future '88 is enough to recommend it to roguelike fans who want something a little different from the norm. There's a nice balance between trying to be thorough about collecting everything and rushing to make the most of your time, which is good enough to push most players out of their comfort zone. Those wanting something quick and different in the genre will find some joy in this title.

    As you’d hope it would in a fast-paced game like this, combat is fluid and fun. As you play you’ll unlock access to new characters that come with unique perks, new upgrades, and new weapons that will become available for selection/purchase in subsequent playthroughs. You’ll also be able to pick up equipment and resources that drop from enemies and bosses, but you can only take two weapons with you at a time.

    Neat shooter with an exceptional audiovisual style and great action, that gets too stale too soon in terms of mechanics.

    Black Future '88 is a challenging platformer that features a huge variety of weapons, characters, and skills. But the gameplay is too repetitive and it gets tedious very quickly.

    Another roguelike 2D action game, this time set in a cyberpunkworld. Not the best in its genre, but still a good download option.

    The lack of variety and a failure to really stand out among the stiff competition hamstrings Black Future ‘88.

    Black Future '88 is a fast paced, dynamic and accurate Run & Gun but truly lacks of content and gets sometimes too challenging and repetitive due to the timed runs.
