Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider from JoyMasher looks like the dreams cyber ninjas are made of

From Press Release:

PARIS (Aug. 18, 2022) – Publisher The Arcade Crew (Infernax, Young Souls, Blazing Chrome) and developer JoyMasher (Blazing Chrome) today unsheathed Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider, a side scrolling action platformer channeling the golden age of classic 16-bit action games in a refined, full-throttle quest for revenge. This duo of retro experts is bringing Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider’s fight to Steam, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation consoles and Amazon Luna in Fall 2022.

Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider’s design holds the best classic action game elements in the laser-precise sights of its starring ninja, keeping combat snappy, responsive and challenging. Powerful modifier chips are guarded and hidden throughout the adventure, allowing the cyborg super soldier to customize its fighting style while gaining killer advantages and abilities. The game’s gorgeously bleak world expertly recreates the 16-bit era through intricate pixel art and crunchy audio, building a striking, compact gauntlet across eight deadly stages. Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider revels in top-notch, refined platforming action for a tight, focused experience that never lets its blade get dull.

Humanity finds an unlikely hero in Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider’s oppressed world; authoritarians have built super soldiers as weapons of war, but their creators have sealed their fate by bringing the warrior known as Moonrider online. Conceived as a tool to uphold a totalitarian state, the Moonrider has rejected its intended purpose, instead choosing a relentless battle for vengeance against its creators and fellow super soldiers.
