Rocket Knight is the title that marks the return of Sparkster, an opossum in his free time is a peaceful and dedicated farmer, but at night and when the danger is short, becomes a powerful armored knight with a sword launches energy attacks and a rocket that lets you fly and float. The interesting thing is that this game came after 15 years during which the number remained in oblivion, after the launch of Sparkster: Rocket Knight Adventures 2 on the SEGA Genesis.
The game's story begins in a peaceful countryside, where our hero, Sparkster, is tending his farm, working the land as a good villager, when suddenly, the wolves decide to attack the kingdom of Zephyrus masse, and to retake its place Sparkster as protector of the place. To carry out its mission, has at its disposal its trusty sword that allows you to melee attacks, and other devastating long range by means of releasing energy at their enemies from a safe distance, but what really separates it from Knight is the jetpack average. With this attachment can be launched toward their adversaries, to float momentarily and fly for a couple of seconds.
The main attraction lies in the accumulation of points throughout the game, which is reflected in the leaderboards, allowing you to compete against other players to see who is the true savior of Zephyrus, and also gives you the advantage of making assumptions and rub in the faces of your friends how good you are in this title. Points need to dedicate yourself to travel the levels and find all the little hidden gems that will give you points to add to your total score. Obviously there are other factors that influence in increasing your score, comoterminar a level in the shortest time possible, minimizing the number of lives lost and the amount of enemies that you've kicked your ass during your adventure.
Usually the levels are quite friendly and do not present much difficulty to move through them, even for the less skillful player there is, leaving aside some battles against bosses that are hampered a bit, especially because they are well designed, have few weaknesses and attacks are balanced. Some fights can make you lose a little time and one or continue, and that until we discover the way to beat the boss, this will keep you at bay and moving constantly to stay alive.
The real difficulty of the game lies in learning to use Sparkster skills quickly and smoothly, then you'll have to bounce off some walls and drill other, hitting enemies and jumping to avoid a rocket, all in a couple of seconds, if not want to end up with a hole where your face used to be. An interesting point is that as advances in history have certain limited powers and abilities, which deviates a lot of what we are used to today, when games try to quench our thirst for power gradually.
Ultimately, Rocket Knight is a fun title, with an acceptable level of difficulty, redesigned graphics and a good system of controls, however, limps when providing variety and a long game experience as only has 16 levels divided into four worlds, and the worst part is that these levels, four fights with bosses, so the game will end in a couple of hours at most. Rocket Knight is available for download on Xbox LIVE, with a price of 1200 MS Points and the PSN, and Steam, for $ 14.99 USD.
