Don’t get me wrong, Omega Strike is an enjoyable romp into the platformer genre, however, it’s not one that I feel brings anything new to the table. If you’re a fan of the Wolbyware’s previous work or are a fan of platformers I think Omega Strike is definitely worth a look-in however for this writer there’s not enough to keep bringing me back to the title.
Overall, Omega Strike is perfectly fine in every way. It’s a fun experience, but nothing that will change your life. Otherwise fantastic concepts are hurt by the save system and lack of direction. Still, if you have a bit of time on your hands and are a fan of retro-inspired metroidvanias – we think Omega Strike is a fine choice.
Omega Strike is a fun and enjoyable little 2D Metroidvania with some side-scrolling shooter sensibilities. It doesn’t do anything particularly new or interesting – and its ‘unique’ character-swapping concept was done a lot better by Broforce – but if you’re looking for a modern tribute to Metal Slug that’s fun and challenging in a very familiar way, then Omega Strike is likely to scratch that common itch.
