Jul 26, 2021Red Colony 2 offers even more fun and titillating campiness than the original, and slightly improves its gameplay formula. The "upgrade" isn't that substantial, to be honest, so the game is better described as 'more of the same,' but it's hard being hard towards this indie, super-low-budget tribute to Resident Evil and Dino Crisis, and how it manages to offer a tale that can take some pretty dark turns, and at the same time look and feel so utterly ridiculous, but in a good way. It's a '70s sci-fi pulp magazine with monsters and busty girls in video game form, and that's never a bad thing.

Without divulging spoilers, this sequel to Red Colony continues where the first left off, with Nicole returning to Blue Colony only to find out her actions taken previously are now effecting the residents of Blue Colony. Through battling slow-moving zombies and new, even deadlier, enemies, this game is a nice improvement over the first entry. While not for everyone with over-the-top animations and distinct looks for the female characters, Red Colony 2 is definitely worth a shot. I would recommend playing the first title prior, as it directly leads into this game.… Expand
Aug 3, 2021This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Thoroughly enjoyed Red Colony and Red Colony 2 was even better. Love the art style and the puzzle solving gameplay. It might feel a little on the short side but it is engaging enough that I have played through it 4 times already just to unlock everything and find every secret. The inclusion of full voice acting made the characters feel much more three dimensional. Can't wait for the third entry in the series… Expand
Mar 5, 2022After a quick recap of the events in the first game, Nicole – the spy who was sent to unleash a virus on the Red Colony – returns to the BlueAfter a quick recap of the events in the first game, Nicole – the spy who was sent to unleash a virus on the Red Colony – returns to the Blue Colony after experiencing a knock on the head by a mystery assailant. As she comes around, she realises that her own colony has succumbed to the same fate. Nicole must now find her daughter and escape to the final refuge in Sky City.
If you’re feeling a little déjà vu, that’s because the character’s motivations are pretty much identical to María’s from the first game. It’s an odd choice to have a plot point that’s so similar to the original, but at least the rest of the storyline follows far different beats and is generally told a lot better. Whereas in the original, you’d have the main character moaning about an affair amidst a zombie apocalypse, Nicole and most of the other NPCs remain quite aware of their current predicament and react more appropriately. It’s not perfect, but it’s certainly an improvement. There’s still a lot of cringey dialogue as a result of trying to make it feel like an ‘adult’ title, but it’s handled a lot better. The game also exudes more of a B-Movie feel, which helps it get away with some of the crazy nonsense that happens throughout the game.
If Red Colony was a 2D version of Resident Evil, the sequel is essentially 2D Dino Crisis… or at least that’s what the trailer would have you believe. In fact, the game is very much like the first one but with a handful of added dinosaurs. As with the original, Nicole will spend most of her time searching for supplies to keep her going as she finds her way to the prison where her daughter is being held. To get there, she will need to obtain three valve pieces that have been curiously separated. It won’t be an easy task though, as the colony requires security passes to access certain areas. She will need to solve a multitude of puzzles in order to make her way through. Compared to the first game, Red Colony 2 has some far more interesting puzzles on offer; they’re not extremely taxing, but they certainly require more effort than in the prior title.
Returning from the previous game is the crafting system, which can be used to make guns, ammunition, and even new skins for your wrist device. By finding material out in the world, you can feed it into the 3D printer located in the Red District in order to gain supplies. There’s only a limited amount in the world, but there’s just enough to see you through – providing that you are careful with your bullets. Combat isn’t particularly satisfying, with the guns feeling like they all deal the same damage, but you can at least shoot out lights for a stealthier alternative. It’s worth noting that the game doesn’t have any bosses, so feel free to use whatever you have at your disposal to clear your way through the undead. You can also use the 3D printer to save your progress if you have a save card handy. These are pretty scarce, but the game is neither long nor very difficult so it shouldn’t prove to be too much of an issue – unless you get mauled by a raptor, of course.
Speaking of which, the implementation of the dinosaurs in the game is done surprisingly well. They were teased in the previous game, but never actually appeared; in the sequel, you’ll come across a bunch of these beasts. They’re used very sparingly and whenever they appear, there’s always a great buildup beforehand. These prehistoric encounters were my favourite part of the game, by far, even though you aren’t able to actually fight them. If you see a dinosaur, you need to hide or run: they’re fast and will kill you instantly. Don’t try and stand up to them, or you’ll be in for a quick and painful death. I did encounter a bug with the final dinosaur encounter whereby the game locked up as it ate me, but considering I was dead anyway it didn’t matter too much.
Bugs in the sequel are thankfully few and far between. There were a couple of big ones towards the end, but other than that there were only a couple of minor issues that had very little impact. Performance, on the other hand, doesn’t fare quite as well. Everything runs smoothly most of the time, but it started to chug in some of the later areas from time to time for no apparent reason. Hopefully these issues can be identified and patched out in a future update.
After playing Red Colony, I was pleasantly surprised by it not being terrible; however, it certainly had many issues that made it seem very rough around the edges. I had hoped that the sequel would improve on those issues and – for the most part – it has. It’s still not perfect. Combat isn’t very satisfying, the game is still a little janky, and the emphasis on sex is a little bit too much. For a budget price though, I think people looking for a cheesy survival horror experience may end up enjoying the game.

It's a game with an absurd story, offensiveRed Colony 2 isn't going to be on many must-play lists. But that's OK, it doesn't have to. It's a game with an absurd story, offensive characters, and sleazy dialogue that will make you feel as dirty as the city you're exploring. The gameplay is basic, the animation is crude, and it's short experience (only about 4-5 hours long). But, like many cheesy horror movies, it has a certain appeal if you know what you're signing up for. There's puzzles, exploring, and horror elements-aplenty. There's a solid atmosphere that can ramp up the tension and some good jump scares. Odds are you won't play it again after you make your way through it, but like any good campy horror movie, you'll walk away with an interesting experience that's certainly...different.… Expand
Aug 10, 2021Red Colony 2 is the direct sequel to Red Colony 1, a 2D Ecchi side-scrolling horror game taking place in a space colony where Zombies haveRed Colony 2 is the direct sequel to Red Colony 1, a 2D Ecchi side-scrolling horror game taking place in a space colony where Zombies have suddenly infected the Red and Blue colonies.
Red Colony 2 takes the same formula as the first game and ramps up the difficulty by introducing breakable weapons. The original could easily lose some of its tension when you realized Zombies were easily dispatched with the knife. Also introduced are raptors, fast moving, seemingly un-killable monsters that will rip you to shreds in no time.
The game is voiced completely in Japanese and the art looks beautiful, however, as of time of writing, the game does suffer from some minor, non-game breaking bugs and glitches.
I still recommend it if you're looking for something different to play on Nintendo Switch… Expand
Dec 17, 2021Oh, how the Nintendo eShop gamescape has changed over the years. Gone are the days of censorship and sweat in place of blood, and now we canOh, how the Nintendo eShop gamescape has changed over the years. Gone are the days of censorship and sweat in place of blood, and now we can have games with plenty of tittilating details (with a typical emphasis on that first syllable) included to bring us to a new mature gaming nirvana. Well, or maybe not so much. Sure, there's a certain giggle-worthiness to the lady of the night protagonist mixing it up with zombies and some dinosaurs (just roll with it) as pieces of her clothes fall away as well as a fair amount of "adult talk"... but unfortunately the slow pace, wonky combat, and somewhat simplistic "remember detail here to solve puzzle there" roadblocks make that "mature" edge feel like the game's main selling point (for what it is) instead of the quality of the play itself.
