8 Bit and 16 bit side scrolling games. The classics that are remembered by many as the start of their gaming lives are due an update and Deep Silver and Comcept look to do just that with the release of Mighty No. 9.
The game has been plagued by delays, to the point where even the demo that was promised was pushed back by the companies involved. Finally, Deep Silver and Comcept have come forward with a release date, that resides less than five months from now. In America, you will be able to get Mighty No. 9 on the 9th February with the whole world gaining access on the 12th.
The concept of a side scroller was made famous by games like the Megaman series. You are challenged by aesthetically different environmental hazards and enemies as you jump, climb and shoot your way to the boss awaiting you at the end of the level. Defeating them will grant you access to their weapon, allowing you to complete the level and any subsequent levels with their abilities.
With 9 initial levels followed by 3 later on, you’ll be able to play a variety of levels and see who is best suited to what weapon.
With a variety of levels and options available, platforming games often make appearances at tournaments where speed running is the flavour of the day. Challenging your friend to see who can complete a level faster and with the better score is always a nice challenge and one that is rarely done without a smile.
Thank you DSO Gaming for the information.
