Ruiner

Listening to voices in your head gets you into trouble.

You must find your brother in this cyberpunk future and brutally kill the many enemies that get in your way. While you can carry a melee weapon and a ranged weapon, both of which you'll be swapping out regularly due to durability or ammo constraints, you are always armed with a trusty, up-gradable gun - the titular "Ruiner".  

Feels a bit like Diablo. In the future?

There are a whole set of skills you can upgrade too as you gain levels - which happens quite frequently in this short game. Make no mistake though, it is quite challenging! While the story is ok, the graphics and controls are really good. The only thing I didn't like is the somewhat epilepsy inducing "hack" slide shows.

Still, this is one I can recommend and give it 3 cats out of 5.

Insight: I heavily made use of the shield and the dash abilities. Pay attention in the dash tutorial as you'll notice you can slow down time when planning where to dash to. This is handy in a few fights, mainly against the melee bosses.
