* "Bottom line, if you like Metroidvania games or platformers, this is a ridiculous bargain... This game seems more like something that would go for $2.99-$4.99, imo."

GROKION EPISODE 01: INCEPTION

In a global exodus, mankind’s elite abandons earth boarding vessel 144k, the Covenant Ark, on route to the moon in hope of salvation via an experimental lunar biosphere pioneered by Dr. Savain.

The Moon Biosphere Programme, developed to provide habitable atmospheric conditions and an independently sustainable environment on the moon, is largely a mystery – utilizing experimental materials and technologies with power drawn from energy sources of unknown origin.

As the 144k makes way to the biosphere, chaos is erupting - the artificial ecosystem has become unstable, satellites, weapons and technology are failing and previously harmless fauna and flora are mutating into powerful creatures!

You are LDU-1 – a Lunar Defense Unit designed by Dr. Savain and the very last unit standing in a fleet of security bots. Your mission is to find Dr. Savain and restore order to the biosphere before the exiled arrive, enabling them to land safely.

Grokion is an iconic action-adventure game inspired by the dark explorations of Metroid and intense platforming of Mega Man. Entwining brilliant modern game-play mechanics, physics-based puzzles and pure old-school styling, it delivers a nostalgic yet progressive gaming experience.

Version 1.0 was 4 stars....but version 1.1 addresses all issues and more. A must have if you like platformers or shooters or just good games, period. The new difficulty level makes it accessible to all and the tweaked controls are perfect. Invest now so you get the future episodes for free! A+

Excellent

:
If you like Metroid, you'll like this game, and everyone likes Metroid, right? This game is worth $4.99 to $9.99 and is a steal at 99 cents. This is an instabuy. The recent update has worked all the kinks out of the game and has added a casual player mode. This game is a great adventure, the art is great, and the music is great. One of my most played games. It looks and runs great on the iPad.

5/5 stars

A Must Have Title.

:
Here is your chance to pickup a console experience for only the price of a soda.

Grokion will have players reminice about both Mega Man and especially Metroid and is a must have for all platforming/action fans.

First and foremost, is the dramatic flairs in the game. You are literally BLOWN away by the art and amount of details as soon as start up the game. The dynamic background art is beautiful. Even the menus look awesome. The title screen has been really well done with nicely blended colours that look unique but right. I really appreciate teh developers efforts at making all the models, environmental objects look smooth and rich. In short, Grokion is an eye candy.

In terms of gameplay, the levels are nicely designed in such a way that there is both simplicity and depth to each. For a beginnging player, the levels are fairly linear and can be passed through without too much confusion. However, the player will be able to pickup items that will enable to visit the more secretive parts of the level and gain even more bonuses. This is nice because it adds an exploratory element.

The controls are fluid and easy to utilize. Running, walking, shooting are not stuttery. The scene flows are silky smooth. The technical elements to this game is well done.

If one thing everyone likes is RPG elements in term of collectibles. And this game has it. Gradually you will become ever more powerful as you discover more secret to add to your considerable arsenal of weaponry/tools. It is like metroid where new weapons are found throughout.

A few people have complained about the difficulty level but that has been addressed with the newest update. There is now a selectable casual mode that is much easier to new players.

Keep in mind, this game although already worth more than many other games in the app store is still in its relative infancy. And with each addition of episodic update, the game will grow, adding more levels, enemies, secrets. However, the price will also go up with each update, so be sure to take advantage of this early promo offer. If you are still not convinced, check out a video or find a few reviews. I am sure they will all be glowing. This is a purchase that won;t fail to impress.
