AFTERGRINDER Indie Game Review
Are you looking for a fast paced arcade game to rage at? Well, then you might just be looking for AFTERGRINDER, an indie game that just came out this Tuesday to Steam.
AFTERGRINDER is a fast paced arcade runner where you have to defy gravity in order to skate to the finish line. The further you go, the harder the levels become. It also has the story of a modern day Romeo & Juliet, where a gang member (The Dude) falls in love with his rival from the other gang’s sister (The Lady). In order to save The Dude from getting his butt kicked by her gang, she must skate by grinding rails and dodge death to get to him in time.
In this game, you have to skate on the ground and on the ceiling to dodge obstacles, thus avoiding a brutal death. However, with all different obstacles and how crazy this game becomes, you will die. If you’re like me, you will die many times. The further you go in this game, the harder it becomes. You can, however, switch between The Dude and The Lady. The Dude is essentially easy mode while The Lady is normal mode. If you’re really good you can unlock The Shark mode, where things become really intense.
AFTERGRINDER is definitely a game for those who want a fast paced arcade runner to play. I did enjoy it, even though I wasn’t very good. The fact that they made the cutscene between where you die and where you start over again so short, makes the game flow really well. The game developers expect you to die over and over, which made it even more fun for me. I really like that the game doesn’t beat you down for dying as well, and when you’ve died over a certain number of times, you obtain achievements. I’m aiming for the achievement you get for dying over 200 times.
Overall, this game is fun. It’s not meant to be taken too seriously and is a good game to play when you just want to relax. It’s a game that I will play randomly over and over again.
