Great Megaman X-style platformer. In 20XX, as in Capcom's classics, you'll have to battle your way through 8 levels with their boss before you'll be able to defeat the boss in the final levels. There are also in 20XX (so far) two characters: Nina, who like Megaman X can shoot various projectiles out of her arm cannon, and Ace, who corresponds to his swordsman colleague Zero. Both characters can take over the skills of defeated bosses and use them in the following levels. The big difference to the Megaman X games are the roguelike elements. More precisely, these are Permadeath and procedurally generated levels. Permadeath simply means that you only have one life (there is an easy mode with two extra lives, but it's more for absolute beginners and doesn't let you unlock achievements) and at the end of each game you lose all your equipment and upgrades (no matter if you lose or win). However, during the game you can collect so-called soul chips, which you can then use to unlock stronger upgrades in your headquarters, which can then appear in future game sessions. (However, it is important to note that you can play the entire game without any upgrades if you are good enough. )
