30XX is the path that Keiji Inafune or Capcom could have taken, but never did. Luckily Batterystaple Games decided to work on their 20XX proposal and develop a game that surpasses it in every way. One that adapts the classic Mega Man formula to the roguelite genre with a fun and polished proposal.

30XX stands out as a true spiritual successor to Mega Man X, illuminating the relevance of that Capcom title during an era when 2D action platformers reached their peak. Though the inspiration is clear, 30XX manages to forge its own identity through a polished and precise gameplay as well as compelling game modes that keep the player going for hours and hours. It's a blessing to be able to play this game in the current age.

All in all 30XX is shaping up to be everything the original title was and more. While a little thin on content and glitch/bug heavy, this can be reasonably forgiven due to it being in Alpha state. I have no doubt that this title is going to great places and would suggest any Megaman or Roguelike fan take advantage of the Early Access program and get in early. Even though there isn't a whole lot here right now, it's constantly updating and is certainly my current MegAddiction.
When it comes to the most important elements - the level design, how the game plays, and whether it entices you to come back and keep playing - 30XX is fantastic.
