ICEY Switch NSP Free Download GAMESPACK.NET Take one look at the ever-growing library of Nintendo Switch eShop titles and the term ‘2D side-scrolling action game’ crops up more often than not. Nintendo Switch is already home to many and fans of the genre certainly have a great and extensive range to choose from. Developer FantaBlade Network adds its futuristic slasher ICEY into the mix and although the title won’t take more than a couple of play sessions to get through, its odd yet unique spin on the genre offers an experience that’s more than worth its asking price. You play as ICEY, a robot humanoid that wouldn’t look out of place in any sci-fi anime past or present. She’s armed with a sword, a hefty amount of agility and a distinct lack of speech. The omnipresent voice you do hear in this game is the ‘developer’ who explains the goings on around ICEY, and it’s a voice you’ll need to get used to quickly as it’s there until the credits roll. It’s quickly made apparent that the main objectives here are to take down the evil and powerful ‘Judas’, defeat Judas’ mini-boss comrades and to try and piece together the reasoning behind ICEY’s existence in the process.

Without the constant metacommentary, this title would easily fall into the bargain bin of cookie-cut sci-fi hack ‘n’ slashers out there. However, with the narrator continually bugging you to follow his every instruction and direction, it’s increasingly difficult to refrain from sticking two fingers up and going your own way – like when you were told to stay put at the shopping centre but couldn’t help but run off to go on your own adventures. Plastered over the beautifully detailed high-tech backdrops – and forcefully pointed out by the narrator – there are glaringly obvious arrows showing the way towards Judas’ whereabouts. It’s push/pull factor of seeing these and hearing the narrator almost shout at you to go in the said direction that makes this title more about playing against the rules than rushing to the finish line. Wander off and he’ll get agitated. Get back on track and he’ll turn smug. It’s a nice touch and certainly makes the experience more immersive with a cleverly reactive voice constantly hovering over you delve deeper in. There’s hidden cash to help upgrade your move-set, humorous dialogue to be subjected to and other incentives (no spoilers here!) to tempt you away from the main story focus. This isn’t to say it’s all plain sailing, though.

Fast-paced Combat.

At various points, we find ourselves reaching for the option to turn the voice off entirely and instead opt for text only. Yes, the narrator does a thorough and often playful job of dishing out context to ICEY’s actions, but it does have a tendency to become irritating. Still, hearing the narrator becomes increasingly frustrated the more you disobey his instructions did make us chuckle. The game handles very well mainly due to its accessible control system that’s pleasantly uncomplicated to get to grips with. Slicing and chopping your way through a small but varied roster of enemy robots is a silky smooth affair with ICEY executing impressive acrobatic kills with just a few presses. Most 2D side scrolling action games revolve around fighting and moving to the right, while following any arrows meant to point you in the right direction. Why do we blindly follow these arrows? What happens if we ignore them and head in other directions? ICEY takes these questions and makes them a part of the adventure. The story begins with the narrator explaining that the villain Judas must be killed and that ICEY must be the one to do it. ICEY is floating in a cryogenic capsule and the game prompts you to press any button to continue. If you press nothing, the narrator comments that ICEY isn’t ready and the game soon ends.

Don’t worry, the game loops back to this point and gives you the chance to continue as intended. This is just one of many instances where the game gets meta and breaks the 4th wall. Another early example is how the difficulty is set. The game reads your account info and asks if it is you playing, then asks about the importance of story compared to battles, along with a few similar questions before determining what difficulty setting fits your answers best. This is neat and I thought it was a fun little twist on the typical difficulty setting choice. The gameplay is simplistic yet fun; it boils down to hack and slash combos, dashing, and jumping. The damage you inflict increases as your combo increases, so it incentivizes stringing attacks together. Dashing is primarily used for dodging enemies, and you can even dodge through enemies. If you time it right before getting hit by an attack, you get a short window of opportunity to perform a heavy counter by pressing A. Similarly, you use this same timing mechanic to perform a finisher after weakening an enemy. Once weakened enough, they will be stunned and have yellow rings surrounding them, which prompts you to hit the A button and eliminate that enemy.

Incredible Combos.

Some tougher enemies require more than one finisher to take them down, so be prepared. In addition to a health bar, there’s also a shield meter to take into account. The shield reduces damage taken until the meter is depleted. When the meter is emptied, the shield breaks, stunning ICEY for a short time. After regaining her composure, ICEY can fight normally again, and the shield will slowly regenerate so long as you avoid taking damage. Health, on the other hand, can only be regained by killing enemies with a finisher. Defeating them this way causes ICEY to destroy their core and absorb that energy as health. The health obtained is a good amount, so if you fight carefully, you won’t be in danger of dying. If you want to increase your odds of survival, there are upgrade stations scattered around the levels. You’ll need to use money collected from defeating enemies and breaking money blocks found in secret areas. Most of the upgrades are used for unlocking more combo moves and increasing the damage of said moves. You can also upgrade health, health regen from finishers, damage reduction, and more. There are some really good combos, so find which ones fit your playstyle best and make sure to buy them quickly. Besides combos, one other move that can come in handy is the fullscreen attack.

After beating an enemy, they will drop energy shards, and you can hold down Y to absorb those shards. Upon releasing the button, every enemy on screen takes damage. It isn’t an ultimate move by any means, but it allows you to damage multiple targets at once.

The bosses are typically large robots that want to smash, blast, or crush you. The fights come down to slashing and dodging over and over. It’s repetitive, but that doesn’t take away from the fast-paced beatdowns. The bosses are by no means tough, they just do more damage and have more health than the fodder enemies. Their attacks are fairly easy to read, which makes forming a pattern of attack simple. These boss battles weren’t as engaging, but they will suffice those that want challenging enemies within the game. Pressing a combination of ‘Y’ and ‘X’ sees ICEY chain together a satisfying sequence of quick jabs and slower but more powerful slices. Pressing ‘A’ stops your chosen foe in their tracks and triggers slow-mo lethal finishing attack. It’s dramatic but it works. Using money from fallen enemies and boss battles opens up more powerful and interesting move sets that, when levelled up to their max, makes for some astounding multi-chain kills. It’s this simplistic yet effective approach to the combat system that helps makes this title home to straightforward yet interesting playthroughs – it’s simple to jump straight back into the action and to get to grips with the mechanics. Hammering the buttons to make ICEY aimlessly fling her sword does the job, but learning the combo’s creates a dazzling display of manic manoeuvres that’s a treat to witness. Combat isn’t just relegated to the ground, though.Pocket Pool Switch NSP
