Looks like a sort of prequel to Steel Strider.

Looks very Turricanesque, I'm keeping my eyes on it.

Astro Port put out a demo for this game a few days ago, FYI. It's an action-y metroidvania, nothing out of the ordinary.

Played through the demo just now.

It's kind of like a run 'n gun Metroidvania, with a map, savepoints, areas where you can't go to until you have the correct weapon/item/etc. Looks to have maybe seven or eight weapons you can switch between at will, though the change takes a good 2-3 seconds so it's not something you want to do in the middle of a firefight. There's also a jetpack like booster at your disposal, which allows for speedy movement and to reach higher ground, and it's pretty fun to use it to zip around enemies and fire at their asses.

As per usual, Insane difficulty's where it's at for Astro Port games. This time the difference didn't feel as drastic as it is in, say, Satazius, but the enemies were certainly more numerous, fired more and even the scenery was changed to have more spike traps.

I never really could get into Steel Strider, but this felt more up my alley. Will buy.
