They Always Run Review :
They Always Run Story
Aidan, a three-armed bounty hunter, is out for vengeance. To make things right, he must locate the Black Marshal. The narrative of They Always Run is your classic revenge story: someone killed my loved one(s), and now I have to find and kill them myself.
That is the entire plot of the game. Several side plots spice up the story, but they ultimately fall short of making it more fascinating. The revenge plot appears to do nothing more than set the stage for the gameplay.
It is primarily conveyed through text dialogue between characters in a font that, to be honest, is a little unattractive. The ugliness of the story and typography is a glaring flaw in a game that features such breathtaking scenery.
They Always Run Gameplay
They Always Run adheres to the formula used by numerous action platformers. The platforming in this game is above average. There are obstacles to avoid, gaps to fill, and railings to scale. At some point, you can even obtain a grappling hook to launch yourself or smash some walls.
However, this is nothing new. Every platformer has some variation, and They Always Run adds nothing fresh to the mix. Previously, moving or falling platforms, double jumping, and sprinting have been done. They Always Run is a 2D platformer with two unique gameplay halves.
The first section is a fun parkour simulator, while the second is a hefty, visceral combat system that I never got weary of. You play as Aiden, a three-armed mutant who hops between worlds collecting bounties offered in a succession of action-platformer linear stages.
It nearly never goes according to plan. The title is fairly accurate, and chasing rewards is on the next level of excitement. As you jump or tumble down between platforms, you travel in a freeform manner that conserves your speed, and there’s a button to help you vault over smaller things in your path. It becomes an execution test, intending to press the buttons as quickly as possible.
They Always Run Combat
This concept is also reflected in the combat in They Always Run. You begin with a basic three-hit combo, followed by a counter and a dodge. The unique ingredient, though, is Aiden’s third arm. It pierces enemy defenses and shields like they’re nothing, and it gives you an arcade-like experience every time you use it. It would help if you physically pushed the right stick in the direction you wanted his arm to fling.
They Always Run Review: Every time, it’s like shooting an exceptionally sensitive slingshot, right down to the windup and pullback. For some reason, his arm is a limited resource, and you can only generate charges of it by countering adversaries.
I first wanted to use only my basic attack and third arm but needing to use everything forces you to think more imaginatively. I had trouble with snipers at first because there were constantly covered guards in the path. Once I realized Aiden’s potential, I knew I had to sneak past the guards, take down the sniper first, and work my way back. The game is excellent as an Oldboy corridor scene simulator.
They Always Run Graphics & Visuals
Beautiful doesn’t even begin to describe the game’s visuals. Much of the effort has gone into the creation of art. So much so that you wouldn’t be surprised if you discovered the artists had sprouted a third arm to produce it. The backgrounds are exquisitely created, appearing to be brush-painted. The brilliant colors display an incredible picture of whatever planet you are on.
The foreground is brilliantly drawn to showcase each level’s mechanics while also altering across levels to fit the surroundings. Each figure is drawn to perfection, with small nuances that set each character apart from the others. Not to mention that the lighting on each symbol is superb.
Each movement’s animation is also meticulously created. You can notice how much effort the artists put into drawing each animation frame for each character’s unique moves. The fighting and movement animations flow nicely, making it feel like a well-choreographed dance.
