Revita offers a unique experience each time you play

Solo developer Benjamin Kiefer aka BenStar and indie publisher Dear Villagers release their twin-stick roguelite platformer Revita. The controls take a bit of getting used to as they're not the normal buttons you'll be used to for various actions... But that shouldn't be too much of an issue.

The main problem will be down to whether you're a fan of retro roguelite platformers and if you need another one in your library.

Revita offers a unique experience each time you play - thanks to the procedurally generated levels. While it delivers a little originality, in the tower climbing lift scenario, it soon becomes a long hard slog with little reward.
