Anew is a platformer developed for the PC platformer with shooting elements. It is a debut project of Resonator, founded by Steve Copeland and Jeff Spoonhower. These artists have previously worked for companies such as Westwood, Petroglyph, Electronic Arts, BioWare, 2K Games, Sony, Deep Silver and THQ.
In the Anew released for the PC platform we play the role of a child, who one day wakes up alone on the moon orbiting a foreign planet, twenty light years away from Earth. Our task is to carry out a special mission and find a way back home.
Anew is a platform where the graphics have numerous 3D elements, but the gameplay mechanisms remain two-dimensional. Production puts great emphasis on the fight with firearms, and the control system allows you to aim freely, regardless of the direction of movement. The creators prepared a large selection of weapons and an extensive gallery of enemies, whose defeat requires the use of various tactics.
The game world has an open structure and its exploration takes place both on foot and with several types of vehicles. While playing it is necessary to collect a variety of items that allow you to unlock new weapons, gadgets and skills. Authors drew inspiration from the category of platformers called metroidvania, so at the beginning of the game a lot of sections are inaccessible and we can return to them only after gaining useful improvements.
