Environmental Station Alpha DEMO (2014)

Esa-demo-1 Esa-demo-2

Usually there’s not much sense in reviewing a demo of a game, as it’s just a slice of the bigger experience you get anyway when you play the full game. That said, I always like it when a game has unique content, even if it is only a short, 20 minutes at most mini-level. The demo of Environmental Station Alpha, one of the best metroidvaina’s published this year, gives you a good sense of how the bigger game plays, you already get a few skills (double-jump, skyhook, boosted shot), see a lot of varied environments and best of all have to finish of a mini-boss, who while not exactly hard can be challenging enough for the first few tries to wet your appetite for the whole game.
