Phantom Trigger is on the halfway between a true indie gem and a completely skippable title. It does have an entertaining hack n’ slash combat, but it falls short due to its repetitiveness. Its art style and atmospheric cyber-demon world is interesting enough, though, and may keep you hooked in addition to its surprisingly thought-provoking narrative.
I wouldn’t say that Phantom Trigger suffers from an identity crisis—I just feel that it doesn’t live up to what it sets out to accomplish. With no sense of direction or any clear purpose in mind for the player, Phantom Trigger‘s appeal rests solely upon its gameplay, which is hit or miss, depending upon your preferences. Being given all your tools early on is disconcerting, as I was hoping for a more Metdroidvania approach to unlocking new abilities, and the repetitive combat and waves of enemies only add to that bland presentation. Though appealing in both visuals and audio, it doesn’t make up for all of Phantom Trigger‘s other faults.
