Warp Soldier is a stylish pixel art metroidvania with a focus on mobility and combo-based combat as you fight your way through it’s large monochrome world.
In Warp Soldier you control a little soldier as he makes his way through a monster-filled monochrome world. You can walk and jump as in any traditional platformer, but you also have access to a sword and kick attacks that you can combine for a variety of melee combos (including the ability to launch enemies up in the air). As you progress you also unlock more abilities, including a handy warp-tag ability that allows you to teleport to where the enemy you tagged is.
At the moment the jumping feels a little inaccurate and the AI of the enemies is a little too basic (so you can kill them all with the same basic juggle combo), but other than that Warp Soldier is off to a great start. It’s got a strong visual style, the pixel art animation is excellent and it’s a real pleasure to explore and discover the secrets the world is hiding. It’s charming and playful world feels a little like that of a Mario metroidvania game would be like, but with gameplay that has more of a focus on melee combat and mobility tricks. It turns out it’s much more fun being able to beat up your enemies instead of just bouncing on their heads!
