  • Summary: Fenix Rage is a stylish 2D platformer that will have gamers exclaim in frustration and exult in victory as they navigate through hundreds of palm-sweating levels to reach a cookie?! Best played with patience and a glass of milk.

    It doesn’t pander to the player like a child, taking a long time to reach a modicum of difficulty. It’s under the impression that we’re here for a challenge and provides just that for us. Fairly, that is, so that the only one to blame for our violent rage quits are ourselves.

    Obviously Fenix Rage loses some points for coming after, but if the worst thing you can say about a game is “Damn near as good as Meat Boy” then that’s very high praise.

    There are more challenges to unlock in Fenix Rage than I should bother mentioning, including one that butts heads with my infinite-jumping utopia, so it’s worth noting that on top of an already enjoyable and cookie-filled game, you’ll find yourself revisiting earlier levels again just to maximize your investment.

    With a rock solid gameplay, ultra reliable controls and refreshing mechanics for a platform game, Fenix Rage passes the Super Meat Boy test and brings tons of new challenges for gamers willing to push themselves to the limit.

    Despite being a shorter and less varied experience than Super Meat Boy, this game perfectly fills the void felt by anyone looking for a new platformer where they will snap their controllers in frustration.

    Fenix Rage knows that you're here for a challenge, and that's exactly what it serves. Through the highs and the lows, you don't really have any time to think about what's going on or to be bothered by the simplistic and overly saturated visuals and repetitive generic music.

    Ultimately, I never felt like I got “good” at Fenix Rage, only occasionally lucky.

But also it has one major flaw - it just CREAMS Super Meat Boy.

    Almost a complete rip-off - from character design to music - this game just ain't got it's own distinguishable style. First set of levels - a world - is called "Red Forest" (in Super Meat Boy - "The Forest"); worlds have 20 levels in them in both titles; you can collect "cookies" (in Super Meat Boy - "bandages"); main character is square-shaped, just like our good ol' buddy SMB; music is the same blend of heavy guitar riffs and rapid electronic solos; you can stick to and jump off the walls in both games...

    I can go on but I think it's enough on this. Though I cannot dislike Fenix Rage because it is made with care and is a qualitative piece of work. Just let me remind you that in hell a special place is reserved for plagiarism. And remember this: it's not even close to how good Super Meat Boy is.

If you are a die hard fan of similar games, you may be let down by this, but if you are new to the genre, you could find it quite unfairly hard, it doesn't quite have a balance between the two.
