Never Stop Running – Speed Limit Steam Review

Speed Limit is a game you should be playing right now. So run and get yourself a copy before it passes you by.

TL;DR: Wow! They finally made a game about our commute to the home office.

ready, set….run!

Think your daily commute is tough? Spend some time with Gamechuck’s newest runner, Speed Limit, and you’ll start to appreciate just how relaxing Los Angeles traffic can be compared to this game.

Casting you as an innocent commuter, Speed Limit takes you by the collar and doesn’t let up one bit. Right from the start, you’re off on the proverbial run throughout the various levels with the simple goal of surviving wave after wave of relentless attacks.

Taking elements from classic games of the past, you’ll be dodging bullets, weaving in and out traffic, and blasting bad guys from the air. The experience is surreal at times that at the end of it all, you’ll probably feel what James Bond goes through on a daily basis.

The jump and crouch buttons will help keep you alive. Use them!

Shoot first and ask questions later

The first few levels, a shootout inside a train and then a car chase sequence, acts as precursors of what’s to come as each level becomes progressively more challenging and daunting the further into the game you get.

Improving and surviving each round takes practice, memorization, and a whole lot of patience because one small slip-up will almost always lead to death. And believe me when I say you will die. And die often. Thankfully the game’s generous quick loading feature ensures that you’ll be up and running in no time.

Visually, Speed Limit retains that old-school feel through its liberal use of pixel graphics that are reminiscent of games from years past. Despite the abundance use of blocks, each pixel is meticulously placed and never gets confusing to navigate around. The thumping soundtrack is synchronized perfectly with the action and helps to keep the adrenaline pumping at full speed.

The car chase missions are a lot like Spy Hunter. Keep your eyes on the road!

Overall, Speed Limit is sort of an enigma. Despite its simple gameplay, it is deceptively difficult. While the missions look to be straightforward, it does take a lot of trial and error to successfully complete. And with the high frustration level that accompanies each mission, most players will probably end up throwing their controllers at their monitors in rage.

If you’re the type that likes extreme challenges without the complicated subplots or storylines, Speed Limit is a game you should be playing right now. So run and get yourself a copy before it passes you by.
