Giga Wrecker Alt is a colourful slice of anime action that leaves a little to be desired


Last year, Game Freak took one of its semi-regular breaks from its beloved little pocket monsters in order to bless us with a futuristic, sci-fi adventure, side-scrolling 2D platformer in the form of Giga Wrecker Alt. And now it’s just released on console.

It’s as inventive and eccentric as the likes of Drill Dozer and Tembo in its own way, with you following the colourful endeavours of a cyborg called Reika Rekkeiji as she navigates her way through a futuristic world in which she is left for dead. She is subsequently rescued by Doctor Kozuki, who provides her with cybernetic implants using technology from robotic invaders. And now she’s set to become a serious butt-kicker. Very much like Ghost in the Shell. You know, those kind of vibes… Well, that’s what it reminded me of anyway.
