The advent calendar opens a wooden door: welcome to the Gunman Clive HD Collection affordable saloon review
We avoided the hipster allure of the usual (and easy) “other than triple A, the revolution is the indie scene” in our Nintendo Switch Advent Calendarma la micro-review of today is all for Gunman Clive HD Collection. Because, bluntly said, not only did we need one here on TechGameWorld.com; in general, not talking about these games is purely criminal. The two adventures, both created by the same team of two (!), were previously sold for two euros for the first and three for the second. Now, the work of Bertil Hörberg (game) and his brother Arne (music) it can be yours for well… 4 euro (!!!).
Gunman Clive HD Collection, fourth review of the Nintendo Switch Calendar
Both games pose as if they were a nineteenth-century counterpart to Mega Man. Minimalism, unlike the “party” organized in Super Mario 3D All-Stars, here plays in favor of the appeal of the whole experience. A cel-shaded graphic style accompanies Clive, Ms. Johnson or Indian Chief Bob through twenty levels that are possible finish in one afternoon, but not without a perfectly balanced difficulty. The Hörbergs themselves talk about an experience between Mario and Mega Man, and it’s perfectly believable. From the artistic direction to the very spartan life bar, it seems to see drawings on the page come to life on yellowed sheets.
But, you know, the second chapter of every videogame saga is the most memorable one. Gunman Clive 2 takes all the strengths of the first, from the diversified characters (Clive is balanced, while Ms. Johnson can glide without being able to shoot on the move, and newcomer Bob can only attack at close range) to the level design in which you immediately switch from one gameplay idea to another, and magnifies them dramatically. The result is an adventure that goes from the wild west to the whole world, also including dynamic levels with yielding structures, shoot-em-up stages, daring escapes and much, much more. Don’t put it in wishlist: buy it directly!
