Resolutiion is an action game that asks you to ponder big questions, but stops short of wrestling with them itself.
Resolutiion starts off strong, but a lack of direction and some harsh difficulty spikes make it a bit of a flawed gem.
Resolutiion may wear its influences on its sleeve, but even then it's managed to carve out a unique identity of its own. You'll see a little bit of Hyper Light Drifter, Dark Souls, and Metroid here, but the overall package is a wholly original sci-fi experiece that's great for folks looking to get lost in a bleak futuristic world.
Resolutiion is an isometric action game, heavly inspired by Hyper Light Drifter, but it has its own soul.

Even from as quick a glimpse of any of the attached screens, Resolutiion is no doubt a looker — a game that manages to use color to great effect.
This title isn’t for the new gamer. It’s for someone with experience and knowledge; someone who is willing to put in work to reach the conclusion. If you’re looking for an easy game where you can simply hack and slack your way to victory, Resolutiion isn’t for you. But if you’re up for a challenging adventure to call your own, this could be it. As unforgiving as it is, Resolutiion is beautiful, fun and intriguing – and getting to grips with its mesmerising world is a reward in itself.
Resolutiion ultimately provides more frustration than fun, and its efforts to stand out make it hard to decipher and at times too much of a chore to play.
If you enjoyed Hyper Light Drifter and like me, you’re a sucker for good pixelart, there are things to like in Resolutiion. It’s got plenty of HLD’s beauty, just little of its charm. Basic combat, an empty world devoid of reasons to return, and some odd design choices, mar its otherwise great potential.
Due to its opaque nature and punishing action, Resolutiion will appeal mostly to fans of dangerous souls-like combat and abstruse exploration in the vein of the original NES Zelda.
A game that should be enjoyed by anyone who likes to discover a story and piece together lore as opposed to something streamlined and linear like many titles are.
