Análisis Aerial Knight’s Never Yield for Xbox Series X
I’m back in action for another week with new analysis. Today I’m going to tell you about my experience with Aerial Knight’s Never Yield, from Headup games. A curious game of frenzy on the run that tries to tell a strange story while testing the reflexes and muscle memory of the person in charge. Undoubtedly, games of this type add interesting value to the independent catalog of any platform.
Aerial Knight’s Never Yield is a platform title based on precise QTE-type strikes.. Although the buttons to press will not appear on the screen, we will have to memorize the appropriate movement for each obstacle and execute it expertly. The options are medium jump, high jump, slide and run. These movements are performed with the stick pack, or with the buttons in the equivalent position (A, B, Y, X)
To this, we must add that time slows down near obstacles; as long as we don’t play on maximum difficulty. Aerial Knight Never Yield Offers three difficulty levels. Each applies different aids, or withdraws them. In “normal” mode, the softest, the aids allow you to finish the screens without too much complication. While in the more advanced, there will be no truce and the precision must be surgical. Each failure will involve repeating a section plus or minus depending on the distance from the last checkpoint.
Character is not improving or has a life indicator. Since everything is focused on running without stopping or tripping, it’s the same as dying. However, on some occasions, there are clashes against bosses. Which just keeps on being another, tougher long distance race in which to try to leave the enemy behind, or reach a place where the east is destroyed. In these tests, not only will obstacles get in the way, but the boss will shoot, crush, or throw objects with hostile intentions as well.
Beyond the gameplay, there is a whole audiovisual proposition to enjoy. This title offers an endless race in a succession of levels which alternate the decor. The basic principle is “never give in”, that is, “never give in”. With that in mind, if we fail, the typical repeat or quit screen appears, but with other words and a timer to decide. Likewise, the soundtrack may seem simple at first, but it offers new tracks at key moments and over time. There aren’t too many compositions, but they are very striking.
Artistically, the game has a lot of neon and lights on the screen. On the other hand, although most of the game takes place in 2D, the camera sometimes changes angles to explore other possibilities. Aerial Knight’s Never Yield relies heavily on the cinematic effect. To finish decorating the graphic theme, as we move through the campaign or overcome challenges, we will unlock new outfits for our protagonist. These are still alternative colors for clothes, but it’s still nice to be able to choose how we look.
All that glitters is not gold, so we must comment on the less positive points of the game. Aerial Knight’s Never Yield offers 13 playable chapters and a final chapter that closes the campaign. All of this happens without using a single word, so it’s hard to know exactly what they want to tell us. More, you can beat the game in a few hours or threeTherefore, it remains only to repeat the levels to improve the grades or increase the difficulty.
Finally, Aerial Knight’s Never Yield features a fast paced and fun variable camera cyber racer. With the visual decor and the soundtrack, you can enjoy a short but intense proposition. Although the brief is more of an overall description than an adjective in this case, as it can be completed in a matter of hours.
