- John is a father, gamer, a little bit of a weirdo and a lover of games. Normally he can be found in front of his laptop, typing away or playing a game (sometimes both). Writing is something that he has always loved to do and what better place to do that than in the world he loves: video games.
Strider was one of Capcom’s first major hits, even before the times of Street Fighter II. Making its way from the arcades, to home consoles, Strider was the fast paced ninja assassin people had been waiting for. Flash forward 15 years and Capcom takes us back to the days when side scrolling 2D action platformers were at their best.
Sticking to what made Strider so popular, Double Helix has remade the beloved game with updated graphics, leaving everything you loved from the original still intact. They have brought back the dangerous Kazakh city, where you must slash, dash and perform death defying acrobatic jumps to survive. Double Helix has also added two new modes: Beacon Run, which presses you to speed run from check point to check point while you beat the game; Survival Mode, which gives you different load outs as wave after wave of enemies are sent your way.
