Axiom Verge is a retro-styled 2D "metroidvania" action-adventure, inspired by such classics as Rygar, Contra, Bionic Commando, Blaster Master, and of course, Metroid. But it also gives you power over glitches like those found in classic games, Allowing you to scramble enemies, corrupt environments, and enter hidden areas.
After a lab accident, Trace awakens on the mysterious alien world of Sudra. Unsure if he was beamed to a distant planet or the far future -- or if he’s trapped in an elaborate computer simulation -- Trace begins his quest to defeat Athetos and uncover the secrets of Sudra.
