[PlayStation 5] Thunder Kid II: Null Mission Review
Sequel Thunder Kid II: Null Mission from eastasiasoft and Renegade Sector Games is ready to go on PlayStation. Check our Thunder Kid II: Null Mission review!
Sequel Thunder Kid II: Null Mission from eastasiasoft and Renegade Sector Games is ready to go on PlayStation. The Robot Empire is back, and rogue robot groups have been kidnapping people, wreaking havoc in Millenium City. As the titular Thunder Kid, is your job to destroy all robots and rescue all humans before it’s too late. It follows the same mold as its prequel, giving us a low-poly game in which you run and jump as you shoot at everything that moves.
As was the case last time, you’ll control the titular Thunder Kid with the left analog stick, jumping with the X button and shooting your weapon at a steady pace with the Square, R1, or R2 buttons. Some levels will have spikes that will instantly kill you. Others will have a weird quicksand-type element that will trap you if you’re not careful. As you attack all of the deadly robots in each stage, you’ll manage to reach and activate a checkpoint for the level from which you’ll respawn when defeated.
Thunder Kid II: Null Mission includes a full trophy with a Platinum to add to your collection. The list includes 4 Silver trophies and 10 Gold trophies. The objectives to complete include collecting 1, 2, and 5 energy medallions, defeating 25, 50, and 100 enemies, collecting 3, 6, and 9 health tokens, and defeating the first five bosses in the game. Overall, this is something that should take you less than an hour to complete.
Sometimes for a game’s sequel, all that you really want is “more of the same.” Unfortunately, after what Thunder Kid did, more of the same was not going to cut it, and that’s exactly what its developer set to do. The prequel was one to avoid, and that is also the case for this sequel. Thunder Kid II: Null Mission is out as a Cross-Buy title with a $7.99 price, giving you access to the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 versions, each one with its own Platinum trophy.
