Explore a beautiful, vast and ruined world riddled with unknown dangers and lost technologies. Inspired by nightmares and dreams alike. Hyper Light Drifter is a 2D Action RPG in the vein of the best 8-bit and 16-bit classics, with modernized mechanics and designs on a much grander scale.
Hyper Light Drifter is like a synthesis of Dark Souls, 'Castle in the Sky' by Hayao Miyazaki and The Legend of Zelda. Dark Souls reminds of the difficulty with everything that goes with it, e. g. the different attack patterns of the opponents. Moreover,...
the storytelling, which only happens through the game world, reminds you of Dark Souls. br>An 'Castle in the Sky' reminds of the beauty that lies in dilapidated and overgrown buildings. In addition, the giants that are integrated into the game world appear as if they were directly from 'Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind'. Zelda moderates some puzzles and the fighting system reminds you of Zelda. br>
Graphics moderate, Hyper Light Drifter is the best-looking pixel type game I know. Particularly striking is the color selection, which moves in areas that are entangled in the 8-bit graphic.
Soundtrack moderate Hyper Light Drifter is also very good. The Musim is usually rather atmospheric, but in the decisive moments it becomes a very intense, suitable music, which raises the tension, but does not repel the player. br>
I haven't finished the game yet, because I started it again from the beginning. But I can estimate that it takes about 35 hours to finish the game with all the secrets. If you ignore all secrets, which you definitely shouldn't do, because they are very well designed and enrich the gaming experience, you are through with the game after about 15 hours. That would mean that you would ignore the story and only go through the very well-built levels. . .
