Intrepid Izzy Switch NSP Free Download GAMESPACK.NET Intrepid Izzy promotes itself as a “love letter to the Dreamcast”. I don’t know what this means, exactly. In my 4 hours with the game, I found a highly colorful, bland, repetitive action platformer that somehow managed to overstay its welcome in that short period of time. There are some neat ideas here and occasionally funny writing that may make it worth a younger audience’s while though, so let’s get into it. Intrepid Izzy’s story setup is as light as it gets. A fuchsia-haired woman finds a lamp and lets out a bad genie. She’ll chase him across areas like “Aztec Greece” and “Chocolate Mine” while wearing different power-bestowing outfits and beating up a lot of plants. This is Ratalaika’s latest and if you know anything about the publisher then you’ll understand the scope of this title. It isn’t large, though the music is far better than it has any right to be. The story never made much sense and was just more of a backdrop for the action platforming. Controls are basic with X as your main attack. This can turn into an uppercut when you hold up and does basic auto combos on enemies that stunlock them in place. Combat is mediocre, bland, and extremely repetitive throughout. To complement your mindless mashing is a clothing-specific special move on the Y button.TOP/BEST ADULT VIDEO GAMES IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

To start with you’ll have a Hadouken fireball, she even yells that out every time you attack. Other abilities are a wind Hadouken and butt stomp when you’re dressed like a squirrel and a stick of dynamite when you put a miner’s outfit on. Each area is large with multiple branching paths only able to be reached through different costumes, which you can change in town. I wish you could have changed things up without having to travel back so often as it hurt the pacing of the game even with the availability of a few teleporting mirrors mixed in throughout each level. A is your jump button and jumping is the best feeling part of the game. It’s not perfect but depending on how long you press the button you can easily control your jump height and you have just enough air control to make platforming a breeze. Other than that there isn’t much to the game besides a basic and bland UI that is a chore to navigate through. Getting into and out of the map system requires you to back out of and scroll down the map itself instead of allowing you quick access through the view button as most modern games do. The game combines a checkpoint and save system to maximize frustration as you have to find the weird mole rat who thinks Izzy smells nice if you want to save and finish a play session.

Unique HD art style inspired by retro game graphics.

Health works on a three-point system that can be replenished by finding random food throughout the levels. There are heart pieces to find as well, and every four of them can be exchanged for an extra heart for your health pool. The constant mentioning of the Sega Dreamcast in the game’s marketing made sense once I found out that they actually made a physical version of this game for it last year, neat! The game looks fine, with decent animations in the small selection of enemy types. Human characters look odd and I wouldn’t be shocked if their faces were pulled from either the dev or Kickstarter backers. There is a town in game that lets you visit a local arcade and play basic arcade titles as well as get food/magic recovery items for when you’re on a run. I think it looks nice overall for the budget though I did get a lot of ghosting on my monitor. The music is the game’s best part and it’s a mix of jaunty tunes unique to each of the main areas. It comes courtesy of Ben Kurotoshiro and is a bright spot in an otherwise mediocre affair. Izzy’s grunts, groans, and yells of Hadouken are rather muted and the only voice acting I heard in my time playing. Bug-wise I didn’t run into anything at all. It was a solid experience which was nice to see as releases lately have mostly been anything but. Super Kiwi 64 Switch NSP

Metroidvania titles succeed or fail depending on their level design, sense of progression, and gameplay loop. The player needs to be satisfied when they discover new gear or unlock an inaccessible area. There have been plenty of Metroidvania titles, some good, some bad. Developer Senile Team throws their hat into the ring with Intrepid Izzy. If Senile Team sounds familiar, it’s because they made the open-source brawler Beats of Rage. Intrepid Izzy was a Kickstarter project first announced in 2017. Four years later, the game releases on PC and, believe it or not, the Sega Dreamcast. The following year, Intrepid Izzy finds its way to home consoles. Intrepid Izzy is a Metroidvania with platforming elements. Izzy explores different worlds in search of the gems necessary to open the door to the genie’s lair. Along the way, she acquires suits, each with different abilities. None of this is new, but it is competently done. Izzy can walk, jump, punch, and use her special ability. The control is tight and responsive, which makes platforming a cinch to do. When the game begins, Izzy has her default outfit. Defeating bosses rewards her with new costumes. These include a flying squirrel get-up that lets her glide and a vampire outfit that lets her turn into a bat, allowing her to squeeze through tight spots or reach previously inaccessible areas. Izzy will use her suits to explore the levels and unlock new parts of the map.

Crisp, detailed sprites with smooth animations.

The stages include ancient ruins, and a winter tundra populated by ninjas. One stage sees Izzy shrunk down to microscopic size to eliminate viruses in her bloodstream. When I first started Intrepid Izzy, I was enjoying the game’s platforming and exploration, but something about it felt incredibly familiar. Then, it dawned on me Intrepid Izzy is a Shantae clone. The Shantae series is well-known for its platforming and Metroidvania gameplay, not to mention its spunky purple-haired protagonist. Intrepid Izzy features everything Shantae is known for, but what it lacks is personality. Everything about the game feels cookie cutter, occasionally veering into borderline plagiarism. The game shamelessly lifts powers from other games. Izzy can throw fireballs like Street Fighter’s Ryu. She even shouts the iconic phrase, minus a few syllables to ensure Capcom’s lawyers don’t come knocking. It’s one thing to take inspiration, it’s another to outright copy someone else’s work. Intrepid Izzy teeters a thin line between original and derivative, often teetering over into the latter. Intrepid Izzy is a 2D platformer that mixes exploration adventure with a bit of beat-up style brawlin combat. Siralim Ultimate Switch NSP

There’s a distinctly retro feeling to the design of this game with its unusual level design and surprises to its gameplay. After playing through it didn’t surprise me to learn that this had a physical release to the Dreamcast. The beloved swan song to Sega’s presence in the console market. Sega is long out of the console wars now, but that hasn’t stopped indie developers from still showing love for the system. Luckily some of those games still make it to modern systems. Intrepid Izzy feels like something plucked from the 90s, yet it still feels very at home on the Nintendo Switch. If you’re looking for a solid adventure game that doesn’t take itself too seriously, then look into this gem. Intrepid Izzy has the overall feel of an adventure game with a large open map to explore with many collectables and unlockables to discover. However, each section of this large map feels like its own individual level, which is even introduced with banners reminiscent of the 2D Sonic series. The game’s overall goal is to hunt down four gems hidden worldwide. As you progress, you will unlock new costumes allowing you to use abilities to access new areas of the world. These costumes include a flying squirrel to glide across the map and a miner who can lob dynamite to explode rocks blocking your path.

Explore huge levels, each with its own theme and mechanics.

It’s enjoyable discovering these new outfits, although if you want to switch to a different one, you have to backtrack all the way to your house to dive into your wardrobe to change. When you’re unsure what a future area will hold, this backtracking gets pretty tedious, even with the assistance of warp portals dotted about the levels. Hunting for the orbs becomes a bit of a drag, but when the game focuses on the levels and less on the exploration, it’s quite a fun retro ride with a balanced mix of platforming and combat that’s not too cruel. The game will often surprise you with little quirks like retro games you can play in an arcade back in town. Games that are not too bad as standalone arcade hits. Even during the main game, you’ll experience some fun moments like riding a minecart. They are short but memorable. Speaking of short, much like a retro game, this probably won’t take you more than five hours to complete; this will increase if you are looking to find every little hidden secret and collectable. It’s a short to the point ride that feels right. Unlike most 2D platforms, Intrepid Izzy employs a brawler feel to its combat. Izzy can one-two punch the enemies until they literally explode into vegetable-style explosions, which is pretty satisfying.

You can jump kick, uppercut and even make use of a special move, provided you have enough of your special bar filled. Combat is kinda fun and addictive, but it does come with some niggles. Izzy has limited hearts rather than an actual health bar. You only start with three hearts (unless you collect four shards to unlock a new heart through the game), so a single hit from an enemy is pretty devastating, leading me to play more cautiously than take chances. When you reach a checkpoint, your health doesn’t replenish, but if you die, you will restart with full health, a choice that seems a tad odd. Combat can be pretty unforgiving, especially in boss fights that have absurdly large health bars. I liked the variety of boss encounters, but they often go on a little longer than they need to. The overall difficulty is probably on the medium side of things. There are no options to tweak this. Casual players may get a little stumped on boss fights but by learning the patterns, you should pull through. There are regular checkpoints throughout the game to keep frustrations at bay. Your progress at each level can be tracked with a map. This map will also hint at your next objective but won’t totally hold your hand into indicating where everything is. Accessing the map is quite a pain.

You have to pause the game, select the map option, and then select the map itself to pan around and check the areas you need to explore. This would have been much easier to be tracked with a single button. The game’s plot is pretty simple. Izzy finds a treasure chest in a temple, unleashing an evil genie. It’s up to Izzy to hunt this evil fella down and save the world. It’s quick and to the point, putting you straight into the gameplay. Izzy will chat with various NPC in short text-based dialogue segments throughout the game. The game does not shy away from cracking the odd joke and making fun of the various situations you find yourself in. If you’re looking for something to make you smile, there will no doubt be something here to turn your frown upside down. Graphics are detailed hand-drawn sprites with really good smooth animations. Level design is quite the mixed bag. It feels like the developers just threw various random themes into a sorting hat and picked them from there. You have an Aztec area, a haunted forest and chocolate mines. The areas don’t fit or blend together, but if you’re looking at this with a retro lens, it kind of feels right, which is what the developers were going for here.She Will Punish Them
