Review: Borderlands 2 Demake

If you're a Borderlands fan or an old school 16-bit fan or just love playing free flash games, then you must try this free-to-play Borderlands 2 Demake! And guess what? It doesn't have those disgusting pop-up ads covering your screen or must-buy-weapons-with-RL-money crap.

The control functions are simply great, arrow keys to move around and the space bar to shoot; even a 3 year old could play this game. The first thing was to select a character, and each character had different stats. I preferred using Axton as he had the best overall stats that worked well for my noob gaming-ness.

The objective of the game was to shoot incoming enemies which looked like 16-bit psychos and skags which were pretty sweet, level up some and upgrade your weapons along the way. Actual gameplay I found was a bit stressful (but some-what in a good way).

One thing that pissed me off in the game was the random guns; any gun that has the word random in it. Do not pick up the random gun! I repeat, do not pick up the random gun, it will make you die! I picked one up, started shooting up some skags and the gun literally had bullets flying in random directions. What the feck? Made me run around like a chicken with no head and drop dead because I couldn't kill anything. The game developer probably just put it in there for shits n' giggles.

So, would I play this game again? Yeah, if I was bored shitless at work or wanted to listen to some old school ear raping sound effects.

MY RATING: 3.5/5


  1. Ha! That looks pretty crazy. I like the idea of using new games and remaking them in old school format. Good review.

  2. Wow. Never knew they did that sort of thing. Make new games into retro looking classical looking ones. Nice. Also, do you mind if I ask how many pageviews you get and how much you make from your blog. Its fine if you don't want to tell me, but I just wanted to compare to see if mine is good; pageviews per /day, money made from adsense, that sort of thing. Thanks

  3. Haha this is awesome! I found it a few days ago whilst searching the net for more Borderlands 2 info. I made a video on Youtube too ;) I'm so gonna be Salvador on the actual game :3

  4. I am glad to be a visitor of this thoroughgoing blog, regards for this rare information!
