Tuesday Night Indie Spotlight Ep 63: Super Rude Bear Resurrection | PS4 Gameplay
Tuesday night is indie night! This week, I (@piccolo930) fired up developer Alex Rose Games' brutally difficult 2D platformer, Super Rude Bear Resurrection.
Let's get this out of the way first: You're going to die a lot when playing this game. That's okay though, because dying makes the game easier! Super Rude Bear Resurrection utilizes a novel concept in the 2D platforming space; if you die, you leave your corpse behind, allowing you to take advantage of your once jubilant carcass to make your way through the wide variety of hazards each level throws your way. If you fall on a bed of spikes, no biggie, your lifeless body will still be there to make sure you don't get impaled next time. Get caught by a swinging axe? Your previous shell will still be there on the blade, meaning you won't be cut down by the same trap again. It's an interesting way to include everyone in the Super Rude Bear Resurrection experience. The brutally difficult 2D platforming space inhabited by Super Meat Boy and Fenix Furia is often impenetrable to a more casual fan of the genre. Super Rude Bear Resurrection lets everyone in on the festivities, and I love it for that. If you die enough times in the level, you'll leave enough bodies and incapacitate enough traps that you're sure to make it to the goal. Super Rude Bear doesn't leave out the hardcore crowd, either. To those masochists obsessed with death-free runs and ultra-quick clears, this game is right at home with you as well. There are some insanely tough trophies associated with clearing some of the game's more difficult challenges, and I'm certain a community who embraces 2D-platforming-punishment is sure to form around this title. I'm a huge fan of the genre and, while I'm not the best in the world when it comes to these kinds of games, I had a good time with Super Rude Bear Resurrection all the same, and I can't wait to hop back in, play more, and improve my skills. It's difficulty and fast-paced platforming won't be for everyone, but to those who enjoy the genre, you're in for a good time with this one. If you've yet to check out Super Rude Bear Resurrection for yourself, take a look at the video below and see what it's all about!
