The art style is pretty simple,but if you love retro, you could like it. The controls are very good and you can play with the left stick or the d-pad. The only problems are that the game only takes one hour and after dying you sometimes have to watch the same cut scenes over and over again. Expand

In Aborigenus, invaders have enslaved your clan and you are the last hope to save your tribesmen. Truthfully, there is not much more to say about this game as it feels more like a demo than a completed game. Your adventure as the hero of this story is told through simple text screens and the occasional bubble chat to clue you in on what is going on in the world. Story goes as follows: clan is enslaved, hero gets new powers from a shaman, hero fights single boss battle and saves his clan. This all occurs in the span of an hour or less of game play time.
    Game play in Aborigenus consists of simple platforming that requires no skill or precision and is just meant to move you from enemy to enemy. In many cases, slightly alternate platforms can be taken to avoid enemies, but there is no reason to do this as there is no challenge to the enemies and no hidden collectibles to find. The light RPG elements could add value to this title if it had more substance. You acquire the ability to use three different spells past the halfway point of the game, which are completely unnecessary to use except for in one instance to proceed in the game. I would much prefer the RPG elements to be removed from the game if it allows for a longer experience and focus on the stealth mechanic that can be used to score critical hits on enemies.
    Complaints out of the way, I really enjoyed my 45 minutes completing Aborigenus. The simple retro art style is done well, and the controls worked flawlessly. For audiophiles, this game has some really great tribal beats at each stage that I can tell had a lot of work put into. At the full retail price of $5 I cannot recommend this game as in its current state there is just not enough content to merit a purchase over similarly priced titles like my recently reviewed Goblin’s Sword. What Aborigenus did do well is leaving me wanting more, which is why I feel that this is basically just a demo. Wait for another sale as I got this title at $2 so I don’t think it was a waste of money. Aborigenus scores a 55/100 for me.

    I enjoyed it, but I can't recommend it for more than a dollar.
