When it comes to 2D action games, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more satisfying experience than Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX. From its spot-on presentation to its high-octane action, it's a prime example of 2D action done right.
Even though I greatly enjoyed playing as titular hero with all his bells and whistles, there’s no denying that compared to Gunvolt 2, this game lacks the gameplay variety of having two playable characters and ends up being a bit on the short side with only one campaign. There were some special challenge missions that unlocked after completing the game but they felt like an afterthought more than a true endgame experience.
This game manages to expand on the already solid formula established by Copen’s playable appearance in Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 to create one of the most exhilarating platformers on this side of Sonic Mania. Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX also proves that the Gunvolt series can sustain itself via spin-offs, not only creating further parallels between it and the Mega Man franchise but cementing the fact that this is an Inti Creates series that will, hopefully, stick around for a long time to come.
