    Gunlord X is an absolutely excellent Turrican clone, recreated with love on a new platform without laziness and with the desire to offer the best possible experience.

    If you’re a fan of classic run ‘n’ gun action games, then Gunlord X is an absolute pleasure to play from start to finish. It joins the ranks of must-own retro-inspired titles for the Switch, delivering blistering action, stunning visuals and an absolutely stellar soundtrack. It could be argued that there’s little originality on offer and the longevity of the game is also questionable thanks to the fact that it's 'built' like an old-school coin-op release, but honestly, when the experience is this good, it seems churlish to grumble.

    Gamers who enjoy retro run 'n' gun games will get a huge kick out of Gunlord X with its grueling stages and rewarding boss fights.

    Gunlord X shows everyone else what the hardcore fans already knew: the NG:DEV.TEAM is fully capable of delivering an authentic, white-knuckle, retro-shooting experience. The action is constant but not overwhelming, and your arsenal feels varied, with none of the weapons ever feeling useless. The boss fights are fun, while the level design mixes in a good deal of exploration. Really, the only complaint is that there's nothing to bring you back once you finally beat the game, but considering how enjoyable the journey is, that isn't a big deal. Shooting fans are going to have a really good time with Gunlord X.

    Gamers may not remember Turrican. Thankfully, Gunlord X is here to fill that gap inside everyone's soul, which only fast-paced 2D action can fill. Not since Sonic Mania has a throw-back retro style game been pulled off with this much panache and style. While it may not be lengthy, it is hard to let go of the controller because playing as Gunlord just feels so good and the wake of destruction he can leave feels so satisfying.

    Gunlord X, although at times seeming difficult, is still a fun run ‘n’ gun game. The variety of weapons and stages is a warm welcome, making it worth the asking price of $9.99.

    Gunlord X is not only the ultimate version of a brilliant Turrican hommage, it’s your ultimate 90ies nostalgic runˋ n gun fantasy with modernGunlord X is not only the ultimate version of a brilliant Turrican hommage, it’s your ultimate 90ies nostalgic runˋ n gun fantasy with modern amenities like twin stick controls. The pixelart is beautiful and matches the brilliant playability and the game design. Giant bosses, hidden items, spaceship shooting sections and it’s all wrapped with a beatiful score from Rafael Dyll- Gunlord X is one hell of a ride and fits perfect in the line of recent fantastic neo retro releases like Battle Princess Madelyn, Fox ´ n Forrest’s and Devil Engine. Turrican...you had some great moments on Nintendo consoles. Rest In Peace. Now it’s time for a new hero on Nintendo Switch. Praise the Gunlord!

    Honestamente Estoy sorprendido con el trabajo tan espectacular que logro el estudio NGDEV para desarrollar Gunlord X . Para ser honestos:Honestamente Estoy sorprendido con el trabajo tan espectacular que logro el estudio NGDEV para desarrollar Gunlord X . Para ser honestos: Cuando vi el juego no creí que fuera tan espectacular pero despues de la primer misión no pude parar hasta terminarlo. Sin duda este título es una de las sorpresas más gratas que hemos jugado este año y no dudo que debido al éxito que tenga Gunlord X, vendrás más juegos de este gran estudio alemán a Nintendo Switch. Si a todo eso le aunamos el precio el cual es super pero super accesible. Estamos ante el juego de plataformas que todos necesitamos y una joya oculta en Nintendo Switch. Expand
