Dystoria Review

Sometimes a person just wants to zone out and relax while playing a game without all of the hassle of having to worry about plots or tough controls to have to remember. Keeping it simple, like it used to be back in the day is what Dystoria is all about. This is a game that has proven to have a serious throwback to a time when video games were fun and we would spend hundreds or even in my case thousands of dollars in quarters trying to save the universe. Nonetheless, dystoria is a game that will challenge you to your limits.

With around 30 limits for a player to navigate, they will either have to gather three orbs or in some cases will have to wipe out all of the enemy before being successful with the level. If it sounds easy to simply gather the orbs and leave, then you are in for a surprise. You will want to make sure that along the way you collect as many of the nucleons as you can as these will be useful in helping to upgrade your ship. When you upgrade the ship, you need to be aware of the fact that the levels will get harder and more challenging so make sure that you are prepared for that.

The dynamics upon which this game is based on will lead to some awesome gameplay as your ship can cling to the surface of the clumps of blocks and explore the clumps. This will be advised as you might find some hidden goodies that you will be glad you found. It will be important that you master the art of using your primary and secondary firing systems to make sure you get rid of as many of the enemy as you can.

Graphics wise, this game put me back in the arcade and gave me the same level of excitement as when I used to play Space Invaders or Asteroid. In a world where we are going for 3D as much as possible, it is nice to have a game that allows for some simple graphics and takes the player back to a time when space games ruled the planet. There are a couple of areas where some modernization might have been nice, but overall it is a good game that delivers some serious graphics for the player.

The soundtrack for the game also gave me a bit of nostalgia as I could picture myself trying to save Earth and wipe out the enemy. I found myself quickly being drawn into the soundtrack and getting into the action quickly. It can become a little annoying hearing the same music over and over if you repeatedly lose a level, but you can always mute the sound until you manage to advance.

Overall Dystoria is a good game that is solid and has a lot of good potential. It is a go to for me when I am tired and just want to chill out and don’t want to get too involved with my video game experience.   If you have the chance, I advise buying it as a solid back up game.
