Ripple Dot Zero is a classic action platformer heavily influenced by the aestethics of the 16-bit era of the early The game features 20 Levels of running, bouncing, slashing and Gyro-Blade-throwing, set to the slick beats of an original soundtrack of pure fm-funk schmaltz. Even the sound effects where made with FM-synthesis to give the game that sharp sting of early gaming.

I played this using Joy2Key and a PS2 Dualshock controller plugged into a USB adapter, and I have to say it is....THE MOST FUN I'VE HAD IN A LONG TIME.

I was playing like...Super Meat Boy, before this...and it doesn't even have the same level of quality as Ripple Dot Zero, to be honest. Everything here is so smooth and seamless. Fantastic backgrounds, and I love the way the opening credits appear. And to say the least, I wasn't expecting such an interesting main character (BATTLE PENGUIN?!?!).

I will say I had some minor confusion regarding the camera, but that's alright. I got over it.

The music fits so perfectly, and does its job well to get the player pumped.

I could go on, but I have only played the first level so far. It is like a fantastic blend of Megaman with hints of Ristar and of course Sonic.

out of 10...

GFX - 10 (beautiful sets, characters, and color)
SFX - 10 (Incredible soundtrack cements 90's feeling)
DESIGN - 10 (levels are filled out and keys can be rebound)
GAMEPLAY - 9.0 (minor camera troubles makes things hectic)

Overall, this is just like playing a Genesis classic. It is friendly for all ages, and really sets a new standard in what we have come to expect from Flash platformers. Playing with a playstation controller and joy2key as I did, the fun level was through the roof.

Definitely going to return to this one and would recommend to everyone.
