Watch us try the first 18 minutes of the game and the first boss fight in this 8-bit pixelated platformer.
Today, we take a look at the Polish publisher Red Deer Games’ latest platformer, Inukaru: Chase of Deception. It’s a retro-style platformer developed by Einzelartig Games that seeks to endear itself to fans of this genre with fluid movements.
Presenting an interesting story, this platformer welcomes us with an introduction to what awaits us. We start in the forest, where we discover the movement mechanics of the game, combat mechanics, and see the pixelated graphic style that Einzelartig presents to us. Although it does not blow me away, it does look good.
Even so, it presents us with a slow start, where we miss those mechanics of movement and fluidity that Red Deer Games presented us in the launch trailer of the title. Likewise, we have also had the battle with the first boss of the game.
The first boss fight is a very simple battle. It follows what we saw in the 18 minutes of gameplay we shared, although the game seems to hide many mechanics that will see later in the game.
If you are a fan of platformers, this is a title worth giving a chance. Although we only saw the first “world” of the game, there were elements that left something to be desired, however, it is still a good title.
Inukari: Chase of Deception is out now for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
