Games N Moorer vs. Aeon Drive

More On: Aeon Drive

Aeon Drive, the speed-running platformer from developer 2Awesome Studio, has been on the market for about a month now. Games N Moorer's Joseph Moorer - who loves a challenge more than anything - took to the Twitchstreams yesterday to demonstrate the game in all of its' lightning fast, ultra-punishing glory.

Aeon Drive challenges players to move through its levels as quickly as possible, using lead character Jackelyne's power sword and teleportation dagger to hack through foes and zip through cityscapes in mere seconds. The game is aggressively tough, killing players over and over again as it insists on speed and precision to make it to the end of levels. Not only are players pushing for the lowest time on leaderboards, but an actual timer counts down from thirty seconds. Fail to reach the exit by the time it hits zero, and it's game over. 

The level of difficulty in Aeon Drive reminded Joseph of a previous game steeped in epic difficulty - Scoot Kaboom and the Tower of Doom - which, if you haven't seen it, is ridiculous. Nonetheless, Joseph maintains his cool for a while, not starting to holler "Sir! Sir!" at the game until about 15 minutes into the stream. Towards the end of the stream, he is pulling off near impossible runs, which are a little jaw-dropping to an uncoordinated chump like me. 

Aeon Drive is currently available on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PC, for $14.99.

About Author

Howdy.  My name is Eric Hauter, and I am a dad with a ton of kids.  During my non-existent spare time, I like to play a wide variety of games, including JRPGs, strategy and action games (with the occasional trip into the black hole of MMOs). I am intrigued by the prospect of cloud gaming, and am often found poking around the cloud various platforms looking for fun and interesting stories.  I was an early adopter of PSVR (I had one delivered on release day), and I’ve enjoyed trying out the variety of games that have released since day one. I've since added an Oculus Quest 2 to my headset collection.  I’m intrigued by the possibilities presented by VR multi-player, and I try almost every multi-player game that gets released.

My first system was a Commodore 64, and I’ve owned countless systems since then.  I was a manager at a toy store for the release of PS1, PS2, N64 and Dreamcast, so my nostalgia that era of gaming runs pretty deep.  Currently, I play on Stadia, PS5, PS4, PSVR, Quest 2, Switch, Luna, GeForce Now, and a super sweet gaming PC built by Joh Yan.  While I lean towards Sony products, I don’t have any brand loyalty, and am perfectly willing to play game on other systems.

When I’m not playing games or wrangling my gaggle of children, I enjoy watching horror movies and doing all the other geeky activities one might expect.
