Ayo the Clown and Undefeated Indie Game Hands On
Undefeated is a action beat’em up with open world elements indie game. These game is developed by three college students from Vantan Game Academy in Osaka, Japan. There is no storyline other than defeating terrorist in a unknown city. I first caught wind of this because Angry Joe video. Angry Joe is known for raging at things featuring video games. He is a Superman fan which Joe wears the S shirt. Check out Angry Joe YouTube Channel for reviews and rants. Other than that, Undefeated allows player’s to control a unnamed superhero. This hero reminds you of Superboy from DC Comics and Young Justice. Players can chain hits on incoming enemies with range or close attacks. The hero can fly and chase down enemies by locking on. Hero can land and rescue people from fires and rubble. After completing main mission, you can explore the city.
Player’s can earn points for rescuing people and doing good deeds. If you don’t do good deeds, player’s will lose points. The system reminds me of Infamous that Cole can turn good or evil. Mini games in this game reminds me of Superman 64 ring challenge. There are a lot of different challenges to pick from flight or destruction. Note: Undefeated is in Japanese, players can change the language. My thoughts on this game is average. My pc didn’t have the horsepower to run the game. It didn’t stop me from trying Undefeated out. I really enjoy the game and wait to see a finished product. There is a lot of elements from past superhero games I mentioned. Ranking system allows player to replay challenges. Let’s hope these three students will start a gaming company. Check out Undefeated on Steam and become a hero of justice.
