Micetopia  

 

Micetopia is a retro 2D side scrolling Metroidvania style of video game. We are a mouse from a mouse village. While we are out of town the citizens get kidnapped. It is up to us to save them all from their captors. How do we do this? With violence of course. We hack and slash our way through enemies. As we progress in Micetopia we earn additional skills. Look around for secrets because they are around in Micetopia.

I appreciate that Family Friendly Gaming was given a digital download code for Micetopia on the Nintendo Switch. Families can also find this version of Micetopia on the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. There are no physical copy versions of Micetopia available in the United States at the time this review was written. I would love to see some cover art of Micetopia personally. I think that would be pretty cool. Maybe it will arrive in the future.

Micetopia is only forty-six gigs in size. There are decent graphics and animation for such a small memory size. It is very easy to die in Micetopia. We do not start with a lot of health in this game. The good news is we keep our gold and respawn at the last continuation spot. Sometimes that is the entrance to the dungeon. This helps us grind for the money we will need in Micetopia. I was really happy once I unlocked the double jump in Micetopia.

I did not expect much from Micetopia honestly. I thought: “oh boy here we go, yet another indie game that wants to be Metroid. The industry is swamped with these games.” The more I played Micetopia the more I got into it. I felt like Micetopia was more like the 2D side scrolling sections of Zelda II The Adventures of Link. There are definitely way less role playing elements in Micetopia. The feel of the game reminded me of that 8-bit franchise.

Some of the enemies in Micetopia will try to camouflage themselves in the backgrounds. I learned to memorize where the enemies were on each screen in Micetopia. The map is a very handy tool in Micetopia. I learned to use it consistently to chart my path through the dungeons. I also used it to try and decide which direction to take next when I was presented with more than one path. That will happen quite often in Micetopia.
