The Astounding Pretender is a fast paced superhero precision action platformer where you are essentially a badass Spider-Man with guns, who swings around and brings justice to the crime-filled Baybridge City.
In The Astounding Pretender you take control of the titular Astounding Pretender – an ass-kicking superhero who swings like Spider-Man, has the gadgetry of Batman and deals out pain like The Punisher. He’s extremely agile and swoops around rooftops, sewers and beyond, attempting to bring justice to a city where all the superheroes are dead and the supervillains have taken control.
The gameplay in The Astounding Pretender blends stealth, precision platforming, melee combat, gunplay and even first person sniping. The precision platforming is fast and fluid, and your abilities can help you avoid detection by enemies, but if you do end up in a gunfight you have a large arsenal of weaponry to do damage with – including machine guns, rocket launchers, swords, grenades, drones, shurikens (among many more).
It’s a great looking game that allows you to revel in the joy of being a superhero and gives you all the tools you need to dispatch justice. Sure, you’re not invincible, but you are fast, agile and armed to the teeth. Those supervillains had better watch out – you’re definitely not a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man!
