Gun World is an NES-inspired action platformer from M07 games. This indie game for PC has a zany story and retro gameplay. A loving homage to 1980’s action hero games Gun World will really scratch that nostalgia itch. True to it’s NES roots the game will have you dying over and over. Either keyboard or controller controls can be used. A controller is recommended and for good reason, using WASD to move and J to shoot can be confusing and clunky for anyone not used to it. Even with a controller though the movement feels sluggish.

While the platforming can be tough it’s not the most challenging for platforming officianado’s. Players will have to avoid spikes, pits and the attacks of evil gun stealing aliens. Players have 3 lives each with 3 hits worth of a health bar. Also there is no save function making the game all about having a perfect run. Players will face challenges such as moving platforms and enemies that can only be attacked from behind. There are 6 different levels that players can explore in whatever order they chose. Unlock seeds for new guns as you go as well as a special unlockable level. Oh yeah, and you plant seeds to grow guns that can be equipped. This is a unique and perhaps best gameplay mechanic in Gun World. Collecting seeds and choosing when to plant them for the weapon you wield adds a certain element of strategy. At least one bug was found in the game but the developers have been good about receiving feedback and updating accordingly.M07 Games.com for $4.99.
