With a similar aspect as far as art direction is concerned, the great novelty regarding Hyper Light Drifter is that Solar Ash bets on explore a three-dimensional environment space-themed, in which there is no shortage of rapid slides, platform mechanics, verticality when climbing surfaces using a kind of hook and, of course, intense combat against final bosses and large creatures.

The similarities with Hyper Light Drifter are evident, a title that garnered good reviews, and of which in our analysis we said that “with its minimalist narrative -there is not a single text, since the story unfolds through images-, its unique setting and a brilliant but demanding combat system, we find a round game, with qualities that are more than evident to be considered as an attractive option for a wide range of users ”.
Solar Ash will be available next October 26th on PC, PS5 and PS4.
