Another classic addictive games ?
 A classic repetitive games is acceptable for an arcade game but if it repeated too many time it will be unpleasant. A potential dev may need more motivation for future project.

Art/graphic
 
 You know ?
I don't really mind with simple graphic for a simple games but for some people it may not really a good thing to do. It's a some suggestion for the dev to improove and take more time rather than making a game that may have good potential and push it without more development the game and release it to the public. it may not wise if the game doesn't have a new thing to offer. i don't see any new improovement with the art from the prev games the dev may need to consider it in the future.
 


Gameplay
 
 Kinda interesthing i've started realise theres a somekind of experimental gameplay mechanice here which i don't really mind but the gameplay is somewhat frustating for a moment i love platforming and for me the game isn't really hard if im getting more to it but for people who never play or not really into platforming games. i don't think they would enjoy it. The game should have difficulty setting where people can play the game more enjoyable rather than forcing the player with normal difficulties and it's not easy tbh.
 btw the game have one problem it's pretty unbalance if you focused in some place like bottom area or top area the area you left behind will spawn enemy without caps it's mean it will spawn more and more make the game more difficult to play and if you run out of ammo you are pretty much dead.
 


Multiplayer
 
If you have friend to play together well the game would be easy.
 


Control
 
I dont have any problem with D-input Xbox so far.
 


Music or Sound
 
 not really a fan for the first level but the other have pretty good tune on it. no problem with the sound for the game.
 


Playtime (Poweref by HLTB)
I might update this in the future


Story
 
 After playing all the game the dev offer they should have more potential to develop more content games. add more story so the game have more thing to offer. They already experimented the gameplay now i think they should focused on a story. maybe not making an arcade map where you just randomly placed inside of the map and shooting everybody but maybe add more story why you here. what's your goals for the game. i really like this game because it's platforming mechanic they seem can do more than making arcade game maybe adventure ? well we may need to wait for their next decision then.

How many Game Bug
 Found one i dont know if it should do it or not. but the moving platform in first level once which should move right suddenly move left before reaching the end.


DLC worth?
 
no DLC.
 


My oppinion
 
 I write some word above and yes the dev seem have more potential to make better and bigger project. i know it's not really a wise thing to do if the dev have small team but i know they can do more better. :) if you want to see other developer arcade classic gameplay check it here.
 

Recommended?
 
 I am not really recommended it for singleplayer or if you are alone so to speak. luckly for current pandemic we have right now the game seems support remote play together so you can play the game with your friend while keep social distance during the pandemic outbreaks.it's mean its recommended if you have friend to play the game.

Review from Steam

Game that has kept me entertained in the last hours, that parodies the MIB saga. In reality each stage is overcome in the same way, obtaining 20 X, which are thrown by enemies when falling. But each stage is different, with different traps, and different enemies are added, that shoot, that move faster, with shields ...
It can be played in solo or cooperative mode.
7.5 / 10

Review from Steam

Here come the Men in Black…
MIB is the third release from feruloxstudios. They are quietly developing a reputation for developing quirky retro-styled classic arcade games. These are the types of games that those of us who are from Generation X (and Y) typically hold onto as key milestones in our gaming history.
Classically Challenging
One of the important reasons why has to do with just how challenging those games were. The controls would often be quite simple but they’d be nigh on impossible to master. This had both pros and cons. The aggravating con would be that they would eat your quarters if you played them at the arcade and wanted to advance. This, of course, was what they were designed and programmed to do.
However, the strength would be those moments where you slowly mastered the games you were addicted to. The overwhelming sense of achievement. The triumph of beating stages and advancing through the game. The release of dopamine would be euphoric.
Times may have changed since then but the feeling of success still feels true when you can advance.
Unfortunately, as a single-player, there is just too much area to traverse in order to pick up ammo and the rewarding X’s (dropped by destroying enemies) while the enemies are deployed too rapidly. This makes the game almost impossible for a solo player to keep up with the pace of the game.
This is because the game has been designed as a two-player co-op experience. If the game was to slow down then it would be much too easy for a two-player game.
Consequently, the result is a difficulty that is frustrating for the wrong reasons. If the dev team could add difficulty settings engineered around differentiating single and co-op games this would benefit the game exponentially. I, as a single-player, would get the best experience possible while not taking away from the intended co-op experience.
Presentation
MIBT’s game trailers and screenshots are an accurate and fair reflection on the game.
Similarly, to the previous games that feruloxstudios have produced the developers have a strong understanding about what makes retro-styled games work from a presentation perspective.
However, I must commend them on their choice of backgrounds for the different stages. This is a step in the right direction for the studio and is something that is technically advanced from their previous games.
A funny quirk that I noticed with this game is how much the blond agent reminds me of Donald Trump. Perhaps this was intentional but it made me giggle every time I played and… well… I would be dishonest if I told you that it didn’t fill me with joy watching my character die on multiple occasions. The way the character loses its clothing and ultimately becomes a corpse was smart, and humorous, design.
The music used is well chosen, for the most part, and again is fitting to the game and genre.
Gameplay
I played with my keyboard. Using the arrow keys and the L and K keys to move, jump and shoot were simple enough although that particular combination felt a little awkward. I adjusted relatively easily. However, I feel it is noteworthy as it may frustrate other players.
In the coming days, I will be able to play with a controller. If I discover something noteworthy then I'll be sure to update this review.
My one response to gameplay is that I would recommend increasing the amount of ammo that you begin with particularly for one-player games. This is related to the rapid rate in which enemies spawn on the screen. In all of my games, even with careful usage of ammo, I found myself running low. If it were merely a matter of “playing smarter” then it would be understandable.
However, it isn’t because the enemies are bullet sponges and ammunition never gets you far enough. This means you are always on the lookout for more. You then run into the problem of having to get to areas on the map where enemies have spawned too rapidly to be avoided. Ultimately, cheap, frustrating, deaths are inevitable.
Recommendations
Please add a difficulty that differentiates single and co-op games.
Conclusion
I genuinely enjoy feruloxstudios games. They are basic and satisfy a nice little craving for retro games. Unfortunately, given the difficulty I found it impossible to advance very far into the game because enemies spawn too quickly for single-player games.
The game certainly has potential to be every bit as enjoyable as your previous games. Fingers crossed on an update. The updates to their previous games were very well received and met the requests of the player base.
I recommend the game for co-op and highly skilled gamers who enjoy difficult challenges.
More From feruloxstudios
I have previously reviewed Xeyyex and Space Climber. I recommended both games as I believe they satisfy a rather specific niche.

Review from Steam

This is a pretty fun game but I feel you get over-run by enemies too easily in single player.
Try it with a friend instead. :)
