  • Summary: Robin just wants to be a mechanic and help people, but without a license she's a sinner in Mother's eyes. Ever since picking up her wrench, the world has been going nuts and she's wanted to bolt it back together. Now Penance is raining down on everyone she loves and One Concern agents areRobin just wants to be a mechanic and help people, but without a license she's a sinner in Mother's eyes. Ever since picking up her wrench, the world has been going nuts and she's wanted to bolt it back together. Now Penance is raining down on everyone she loves and One Concern agents are after her.

    But something big is going on bigger than droughts of Ivory fuel and personal conflicts and Robin's in the thick of it.

    * Hours of nut-twisting platform action-adventure
    * Numerous densely detailed locations filled with fine-tuned action and puzzles
    * 20+ gear-grinding, screen-filling boss battles stand in your way
    * Three game-changing difficulty settings supported by a unique tweak system
    * A heart-wrenching epic can one mechanic fix the whole world?

    Iconoclasts is the masterwork of indie developer Joakim Sandberg, seven long years in the making. Iconoclasts delivers awesome action, hilarious hijinks and an emotional rollercoaster of deeply personal storytelling.

    Where Iconoclasts falls a little short is in making it clear what it expects of you in places. It uses little signs to convey instructions, but a lot of the time these illustrations make no sense, and you have to puzzle things out for yourself. It’s obviously never impossible, but there are certainly places where it feels like it may as well be. Still, as the creation of one man after seven years of development, it’s hard to fault Iconoclasts for being a little challenging in places. If that’s the trade-off to be made for a story as strong and distinctive as this, it’s well worth it.

    16 hours of pure metroid-vania fun. A good game for the fans of: Cave Story, Megaman, Metroid.

    The best: * Smooth 60 fps (not sure but if
    16 hours of pure metroid-vania fun. A good game for the fans of: Cave Story, Megaman, Metroid.

    The best:
    * Smooth 60 fps (not sure but if not 60 fps, it's damm near that) graphics
    * Responsive gameplay
    * Design of the world, characters and sound

    The Worst:
    * No cross save feature
    * No accessing the Trophies / Settings of Vita (So that I can use my wireless headset) while the game is running
    * Game menu is kinda useless, players should be able to check items / skills descriptions

    I've finished the game, and i have to say i was not disapointed at all, the final boss was kind of weird, but who cares once you are finishingI've finished the game, and i have to say i was not disapointed at all, the final boss was kind of weird, but who cares once you are finishing the game after 5 straight hours playing it, the story is really complicated at some point, so there would be people who will be lost on so much dialogue, but the gameplay is what makes this a great game, i've seen that there is not much opinion on the vita version, so i would like to say, that it was a great experience, with almost no stuttering or issues that affected the experience.

    One of the few metroidvania-ish games available on the console.

    Muy buen juego de plataformas con un pixel-art muy trabajado. las plataformas están muy bien medidas y lo que es el avance del juego funcionaMuy buen juego de plataformas con un pixel-art muy trabajado. las plataformas están muy bien medidas y lo que es el avance del juego funciona sin mas problema. El juego esta plagado de puzzles muy interesante y que ni necesitas un grado excesivamente complejo ni por el contrario te trata de tonto. Ademas que el lore del juego pasa de ser algo muy simpático a una trama que gana mucha seriedad. Expand
