Allegro: The melodic warrior

Well this is weird haha. I didn't know what to really expect, but what I got was interesting. At first I figured this would be Mega Drive-esque, but it actually feels a lot more like an Amiga/DOS game, and that was a refreshing change of pace. The sprites are all nicely styled, and serviceable. The music was also pretty good, but it got a bit stale at times. My biggest gripe with this is that it felt really weird to control. Like...really weird. Allegro moves pretty quickly, even without running, and his jump is SUPER high. But I think what threw me off the most was the Harmonic Frenzy. Using only the left and right keys alone to maneuver makes sense given the platform, but it's also pretty limiting, and given how fast you turn with it, it becomes difficult to use. The game is pretty cool conceptually (even if I still don't really know what's going on hehe), but the controls made it kind of hard to press forward. But a nice entry nonetheless.
