Nov 7, 2022One of my favorite metroidvanias to come out this year. The characters and world were so charming and I loved just wandering and moving around the map. Although I didn't care too much for the story, connecting the islands felt very meaningful and loved that addition to the game.
Dec 26, 2022Delightful metroidvania. Game packs a ton of charm and humor with tight combat and a compelling score. There are 16 bosses and each really challenges the player on hard mode. The platforming is also engaging and fun. My biggest regret was that it didn’t offer more than one battle theme. Bosses were so exciting to fight, but playing to the same theme each time took away from them.
Jan 18, 2023I generally like my metroidvanias on the difficult side. This was not difficult. At all. But it was SO FUN. The characters are engaging, the way the world comes together is fascinating, the upgrades, the combat, the boss fights, the level design, it's all amazing. Top tier metroidvania.
Awards & Rankings
Sep 26, 2022Overall Islets is a brilliant take on the Metroidvania genre though. The fast paced gameplay, brilliant boss battles, and interesting characters, all add up to it being a beautiful and unique take on the genre.
Sep 19, 2022Islets is a compact, very nice metroidvania, full of ideas and adorable characters. A beautiful, hand-drawn world divided into six parts to be put together, rebuilt, setting off on an adventure that is as crazy as it is epic.
Sep 15, 2022Islets marries classic Metroidvania elements with innovative tweaks and a gorgeous illustrative style. It may be on the easier end of the scale, but there’s enough depth and variety to keep everyone occupied, from beginners to completionists.
