👾 The lost Atari arcade game returns with Jeff Minter's Akka Arrh

Noctropolis

Two words: Cool Game!

The Good
Noctropolis has extremely well-developed comic-like characters, beautiful backgrounds and not only that. The acting is pretty good (for a computer game). The game appealed to me for its dark atmosphere and characters (which reminded me a lot of batman); its plot and graphics (a special mention for the comic-book drawings).

The Bad
It was a little short for my taste which is why I wish there was a sequel (the ending allowed one perfectly).

The Bottom Line
It's a great adventure game with a lot of borrowed elements from comics and movie culture which makes it very enjoyable and appealing to a wide range of players (except for little children, there is a some sexual content, but nothing really explicit)
