A.R.E.S.: Extinction Agenda is the first chapter in a fully-featured episodic hardcore action packed side-scrolling platformer series. Set in a traditional retro-classic scenario, you play as Ares, a combat robot created for the sole purpose of saving humanity. Can you live up to the task or will you be reduced to nuts and bolts?
It's a nice Shoot 'em Up/Jump & Run sidescroller, but I found some of the (boss) fights somewhat unfair, but still easy to handle (if that makes sense?) in contrast to hard and challenging, but fair.
Apart from that, the only other complaint I have is that it was too short, which actually means that I enjoyed the game a lot.
Quite a nice side-scrolling platformer. Buying valuable items and upgrading weapons using 3 different components seems to be an interesting idea.
IMHO, it's a bit too short (5 levels), also English texts somewhat lack a good deal of proofreading. ;-) There were some problems with XNA framework, too, fortunately, not beyond repair.
