Yeah it’s 2020, but many of us are constantly left harking back to decades gone by. If you’re one of those who thinks of nothing better than some proper old school retro gaming, then Exp Parasite on Xbox One and PS4 is going to be for you.
Available to purchase and download this minute on Xbox One, PC and PS4, Exp Parasite promises to deliver some proper old nostalgic platforming action as you take charge of an experimental parasite. From there your task is simple – infect as many mechanical objects as you can, dodge past countless obstacles, and take down some of the most fearsome bosses you’re likely to see this side of the ’80s and ’90s.
Promising to deliver plenty of diversity, the gameplay found in Exp Parasite looks to change every single minute, mixing up ideas, pushing out options and ensuring that you begin to come as one with what is needed. Throw in superpowers galore (gravity, what gravity?!), rewards aplenty and tons of twists, and you’ve got an old school game that embraces the modern day era.
“Exp Parasite is a game that old-school arcade players, as well as the newer generation of gamers, will love, ” says Viktoriya Medvedeva of Greyhead Studio. “It has the retro look and gameplay of classic platformers, but with a twist. Each minute the gameplay changes, making you stay on your toes because you never know what obstacle or enemy will appear next.”
Access to Exp Parasite can be found by visiting the Xbox Store, the PlayStation Store or the Steam page. It’ll cost you just £6.69 on Xbox One. Keep a little eye out for our full review in the days ahead. Or watch the announcement trailer below. Your call.
An unidentified alien parasitic entity has been caught by scientists. It has been enclosed in a specially- created virtual simulator in order to study its capabilities. The player controls a parasite that has the ability to move in any direction because it can defy gravity. Also by jumping on mechanical objects, the parasite can take control over them and thereby gain additional abilities. The parasite receives specific opportunities by taking control of various mechs; these help it to advance levels. Each managed object is unique and gives its own gaming experience. These dynamic changes in gameplay promote/fuel user engagement. The game has ten levels and each level has a unique boss. Each boss has his own unique capabilities, techniques, strategies, and attacks. In order to advance to the next level, the player must defeat the boss in a variety of fight scenarios. At the end of each level, the player can receive a reward in the form of a limited number of power-ups (hyper cores). The maximum for each level is 4. If the player is unable to collect all four cores the first time, he can replay the level and pick up the remaining cores. The maximum available number of power-ups is 40 pcs (4 cores in each of the 10 levels). Hyper cores can be used in the store to purchase additional lives and certain abilities. Along with extra lives in the game store, the following superpowers can be acquired and improved: Slow downtime (time in the game slows down for a short period of time). Invulnerability (the parasite gains full immunity to any type of damage for a short period of time).
