Continuing the trend of interesting 2D-platformers, Randall, by developer We The Force, is a Metroidvania-style platformer that focuses more on the Metroid side of the genre. For those who don’t know, Metroidvania is a style of platformer that relies on gated progression and back-tracking. In other words, some areas in the game will be inaccessible until you discover abilities that will allow you to progress further through the game.
Randall puts its own twist on the Metroidvania genre by limiting what the eponymous Randall can do on his own. Instead of giving Randall new abilities, he has to use the abilities of his enemies to accomplish his goals.
