Xeodrifter is a minimalist metroivania: one (customizable) weapon, 4 levels, something like 10 enemies, and a single boss coming back with different patterns.

The level design is fine, game mechanics are nice even if sometimes underused, and the game is very short, between 2 and 4 hours. Controls are weird and floaty, you get used to it but it can be annoying. The game can be hard with only one save point in the ship, or easy, with a checkpoint right before every boss.

The biggest flaw is this boss: it's always the same, and it adds a new attack every time you encounter it. Attacks are completely random: sometimes you get 10 weak attacks in a row, and sometimes it's 10 hard to dodge, so it's very luck-based.

Xeodrifter is average, good for a few hours, not much more.
