Critic Reviews for Avenging Spirit

Avenging Spirit is a fun retro arcade game but one that you likely won’t be spending much time with. It isn’t expensive so I don’t mind the length too much but if you’re expecting to get hours of unique content out of this you won’t. You’ll get to kill enemies as dragons, vampires, ninjas, and more while trying to save your girlfriend and then you’ll likely head off for some new adventure. If that sounds alright with you then give this one a shot.

Avenging Spirit is a fun arcade game that has a unique mechanic that lets you possess a variety of characters and won't eat all of your coins in the process! It's incredibly short but was an enjoyable experience.

The original arcade version of Avenging Spirit is more of a wacky curiosity than a good game but it still makes for some fun times.

Avenging Spirit brings back the 1992 classic by adding a good number of visual and gameplay customization options. Although the number of titles is small, its price is also small and we will have no problem giving it a try.

Avenging Spirit is a dated arcade title. Sadly, it is too simple and lacks longevity. However, it is great for completionists and will interest hardcore 90s gaming fans.

Essentially, then, how much you get from Avenging Spirit depends on how much you generally get out of arcade-style experiences. Blast your way through with unlimited credits and you may well be done and dusted with it in less than an hour, but give yourself some self-imposed challenges — or just step back and enjoy the lovely pixel art and sprite animation throughout — and there’s plenty of fun to be had over the longer term.
