General Information

Available on:Nintendo SwitchFeb 8, 2018

Publisher: Gambitious

Genres: Action, Platformer

ATOMIK: RunGunJumpGun is a tough as nails 2D action platformer that puts a teeth-rattling, gravity-defying weapon in your hands. With a cast of crazed characters, simple but beautifully difficult gameplay, and a pulsing musical score, ATOMIK: RunGunJumpGun is a loud, trippy mess of twitchy platforming goodness. The two-button setup is disarmingly simple. One button shoots downwards, propelling you through the air. The other shoots forward, destroying anything that’s in your path. There is no stopping in this beautifully surreal world littered with deadly traps and soul-crushing obstacles around every corner. Players will have to constantly alternate between the two firing modes to manoeuver through meticulously crafted levels where death is a promise not a possibility. There is only running, gunning, jumping, and gunning, in a mad dash to survive long enough to die again.

It takes something special to stand out in the ever-growing auto-running platformer genre, but ATOMIK: RunGunJumpGun does so with aplomb, copious deaths and a healthy dash of that "just one more time" mentality that'll keep you coming back for more. From its pulse-pounding post-apocalyptic world to its powerful soundtrack, the hours will melt away as you try and collect every last bauble or at the very least just try and make it to the goal unscathed. If brutal arcade-like experiences sound like your cup of tea, you can't go wrong with ATOMIK: RunGunJumpGun.

If you're a fan of autorunners and fancy a good challenge then ATOMIK: RunGunJumpGun might be just what you need. The game is great on Switch when playing at home or on the go, but I did favor playing this one while in Portable mode for most of my time with the game. I definitely recommend this one since the gameplay mechanics make it an easy game to pick up and play, and a very addictive arcade-style release.

Despite its nice graphics, ATOMIK: RunGunJumpGun is a shooter that should had offered a more interesting and complex gameplay in order to justify the several challenges (which are unnecessarily difficult) created by ThirtyThree.

As far as auto-runners go, ATOMIK: RunGunJumpGun is solid. It does not really do anything to win over anyone to partake in games like this but will be worth having around when there are a lot of guests around and can be a DJ understudy for the soundtrack alone. Maybe if the art was repurposed for a more interesting genre, ATOMIK could have been a real winner. Only fans of auto-runners need apply - for everyone else, just go and buy the soundtrack instead.
