My game hunting still doesn’t stop about couple weeks ago I found this game called Ancestor. SUPERMEGAQUEST is the one behind this unique game. They’ve developed a cool game with unique concept and this one is the first ever game with such mechanics. The style may be so simple and doesn’t follow the path of nowadays games but I’m pretty sure you guys will love it.
What Does Ancestor Look Like?
Ancestor is basically 2D side-scrolling game but taking puzzle and mini time attack as its main challenge. You’ll gain control of a non-stop moving character that shoots projectiles. The character seems like living in post apocalyptic or futuristic environment with so many machinery around. All you have to do is shoot down every securities on your way but each one has different way to take down. Your main goal is to go as far as possible so I dare to say that this one might be a runner game as well.
Now, A Closer Look Of Ancestor
For the real snippets of the game I’ll present some pictures here..
As I said before, your character won’t stop moving and every obstacles has their own way to shut down. You may need to shoot it with projectiles several times, or the other type like matching 3 pictures, or remembering sequences. All you need to go far in this game is vast and fast thinking since you need to solve the puzzles in relatively short amount of time.
At some points you’ll face mini bosses as well. Upon beating each mini bosses, you’ll move to a new stage with new set of puzzles so you need to work your brain and adapt to this new obstacles. Some obstacles are quite hard to take down at first (the time you’re figuring out how to disarm/destroy). To be honest I’ve never get past 2nd stage so I don’t really know what kind of puzzles lie ahead. Right, this game also has in game purchase especially for characters, projectiles, and companions. I don’t think each skins has special skills or attributes.
Even though I’ve played a lot of side scrolling or platformer games, Ancestor gave me new gaming experience. Overall, any side scrolling games I’ve ever played is beating up enemies or completing stage, not solving puzzles with short time limit. Your capabilitiy in solving puzzles is really put into test here, so just be prepared. I recommend this game for any casual gamers or puzzle maniacs out there.
