A cool-looking low poly game, Thunder Kid is a game that plays a bit like if Space Harrier had platforms and more traditional gameplay to it. What this makes for is a very mixed shooter experience, more so because the platform parts don’t really work as it’s hard to judge, offers nothing but frustration, and generally makes for a bland game. Boss fights are straight-up bad as fuck, with huge health bars, and small hit boxes, it’s not fun and the reward is just more plain levels until you hit the next bastard boss. I wanted to like the game, it had initial moments of fun especially as I do like the style but the gameplay never sticks or gets to a point where it varies or is fun.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
