LVL99 AxeRage is an awesome blend of of Metal Slug-esque action platforming, B-movie monster slaying melee combat and metroidvania open world gameplay, with you playing a renegade firefighter who’s out to stop two alien races from stealing Earth’s energy.
In LVL99 AxeRage you control Cheins, a firefighter with a big axe who sets out to save his world that’s being ravaged by two warring alien races at once, causing catastrophic natural disasters in the process. It draws inspiration from Street Fighter, Castlevania, Megaman X and Super Metroid as well as movie classics like Predator, Alien, Terminator and The Thing – in fact you’ll notice some familiar looking monsters as you make your way through the game!
The action platforming gameplay in LVL99 AxeRage combines precision platforming with axe-based melee combat, parrying, combos and special moves, as well as new abilities that you’ll unlock as you progress through the game. It’s tough, especially as falling down holes means instant death, but things get easier as you unlock new abilities and level up your character.
The current Beta Demo build packs a lot of content, taking around 45 minutes to complete, with three different areas, two boss fights, secrets, upgrades and even a pet dog to find that’ll fight alongside you. It’s a thoroughly enjoyable adventure full of great enemy design, high quality animation and challenging old school open world action platforming gameplay. A retro rage-filled romp that we highly recommend checking out.
