Plasma Warrior (2007)

Plasma Warrior is a short platformer that puts you into the role of an explorer of an abandoned research station on an alien world. Some aspects of the game seem inspired by Metroid, both the gameplay and the graphical style itself. The graphics use only a limited color palette, giving the game the atmosphere of a very old PC game (it reminded me of the color palette of some parts of Alley Cat). Thankfully, the controls are much more modern and allow smooth gameplay. Overall a very nice and fun game.
