Welcome to the hardest game ever. Yes you heard that right! Teleglitch: Die More Edition is one of the hardest top view games I have ever played. The game is surely exciting and keeps players addicted for hours. It represents itself as quite a brilliant rouge-like game. The “Die More Edition” is an upgraded version of the original game released last year. Test3 Projects have executed a well made game which has a really difficult “difficulty”, much like the 1999 Mode in Bioshock Infinite.
Let me begin with the story. Teleglitch: Die More Edition begins with a tutorial level which teaches you the basics, controls, techniques, and the gameplay elements of the game. The AI in the game has been vastly improved from the previous edition of the game. The monsters / zombie enemies in the game have an intelligent AI for a top-down, 18-bit pixel game. The enemies chase you until you die and they are smart as well as independent to the environment of the game. It can often be too difficult to kill / lose the enemies. In times where a player loses all his armory and enters a huge room filled with many enemies, his first instinct will be just to run! But that can be dangerous sometimes in cases of a blocked room and when you turn back, the enemies kill you.
Many, many new levels have been put into the game. Players now also have the option to choose any level they want from the menu and play it. Huge surroundings and settings have been added to the levels, making them feel more “vibrant” and “expanded”. A new option named the “Randomized Starting Gear” has been introduced in the game. Instead of spawning with a certain amount of ammo and a pistol, with the RSG feature, you can start of with 8 different weapons such as the Dynamite and the Shockblade. The RSG feature of the game is only available to users who bought the game before July 31st,2013 and is more like a Pre-Order Bonus DLC.
The game also features a crafting feature which enables you to craft weapons/items which help you to survive from scratch items. The story is focused on the player, a military scientist who wakes up to find that he is a survivor after something goes dangerously wrong in the “Testing Facility” where he is posted. The aim of the game is to find the back-story of the military corporation which you will learn of the different experiments that occurred in the facility.
The controls of the game are buttery smooth at times and also “Rage Rough” when you get repeatedly killed by the enemy. The beginning tutorial teaches the player everything about the game and you will master the game in not more than 2 minutes. The run keys are ‘WASD’ and the cursor helps to rotate the player. The fire button is the left mouse button and the right mouse button is used for aiming.
The gameplay lacks in soundtracks and even in the MENUS. The game would have been better with some soundtrack but the game without soundtrack, still shows it’s versatility.
Yay Or Nay:
YAY! You have to play this game if you want to get addicted to it and like brutally hard, difficult games. The game will make you sit on the edge of your seat and also cause rage moments at times, but you should definitely give it a try.
Teleglitch: Die More Edition represents itself as one of the best top-down pixel shooters and is fun in all aspects. The game has great core elements of horror, creativity, and surprise. The unique number of gameplay features contribute to this great game. Adding a bit of music to the game would have made it more “Vibrant” but it still stands for itself. I really recommend Teleglitch: Die More Edition to all RealGamerNewz readers! This game receives an 8 out of 10 from RealGamerNewz earning itself the RGN Rating of Silver Game.
