Old-school graphics, catchy music and simple gameplay make up this upcoming indie title, in a small yet powerful package.
Hyper-stylised, nostalgic to look at and with gameplay that’s just the right side of challenging, Wavey the Rocket is one of the most unique games to come out of the indie scene for 2018. Heavily inspired by classic gaming titles and arcade-style gameplay, Wavey will feel both new and familiar at the same time to long-time gamers.
The basics of Wavey’s gameplay is simple; rather than the overblown, narrative-heavy stories you can expect from many indie titles, this new entry instead puts all its focus on the gameplay itself, as you navigate through increasingly difficult puzzles and levels that challenge you at every turn.
This connection to old-school arcade gaming is part of the charm of Wavey the Rocket. With a difficulty curve that’s more mountainous than a gentle slope, and the introduction to the style of play itself taking place in one brief tutorial section; similar to other successful indie titles such as Super Meat Boy, that requires heavy repetition to get it all just right.
The first title to come out of indie studio UpperRoom games, this title is an ambitious and memorable way to insert the new studio into the minds and hearts of gamers by producing something that’s truly unique within the current market.
