One of Malaysia’s biggest video games, No Straight Roads, is a month away from its long-awaited release and we were given a substantial preview of the game to check out what it has in store.
No Straight Roads is an action-adventure title that features rhythm game elements and 2-player co-op. The game has you playing as Mayday and Zuke, also known as the rock duo, Bunk Bed Junction, who are out to defeat the evil EDM Empire, NSR, who crushed their dreams of achieving fame and stardom.
With NSR’s multitude of musical acts under their belt, players must tackle their melodic foes one by one in epic and multi-stage boss battles. In between battles, you get to upgrade your gear and decorate Bunk Bed Junction’s underground headquarters, explore Vinyl City where you can meet NPCs, repower the electricity in the city through collectable Qwasa pods, and open up new areas to face your next set of challenges.
The best thing about No Straight Roads is its art and presentation of it all. From the get-go, you are placed right into Bunk Bed Junction’s audition in front of NSR, which kind of echoes reality shows like X-Factor and The Voice. When the rejection comes, you know the characters’ motivations and targets throughout the entire game.
Stylistically, the game’s art-style feels like the wacky and zany commercial bumpers you would see in between music videos in the late90s and early 2000s MTV, which never gets old as you are introduced to bigger bosses. Mayday, Zuke, and each member of NSR they encounter are not only animated well but also very expressive. Even the scattered NPCs you meet are also pretty distinct.
The music is also where the game shines the most. The subtle genre change between EDM and Rock as the battle rages on is a neat touch and not done very often in games. What’s great is that you can experience the same songs in a multitude of ways, thanks to the rematches you can do with the bosses, where you can pick not only the difficulty of the battle but also the remixes you want to listen to.
Rhythm and Bones
The basic gameplay loop is simple enough: you start off at the hub world to upgrade your skills and loadouts, and head out to Vinyl City to explore, collect hidden collectables, and find your next objective. Once you reach the targeted concert hall, you will engage in an epic-scaled battle with a member of NSR. Within those fights themselves, there are mobs to defeat and platforming challenges for you to conquer while depleting the bosses’ health.
Mayday and Zuke both specialise in offence and defence respectively, with Mayday dealing massive amounts of damage with her melee attacks and can transform objects around the stage into offensive weaponry. Zuke, on the other hand, has a percussion-based rhythm element to his melee attacks, where you have to attack on the beat to chain a combo, and he can also transform stage objects into shields.
With the two bosses we had access to, and the one included in the free demo, we got to see the range of fights you’ll be encountering in the full-release of No Straight Roads. The first boss fight, DJ Subatomic Supernova, teaches players the basics of the game’s long-range shooting mechanics as well as the need to be aware of stage hazards in the player’s surroundings.
The mermaid-like vocaloid-inspired boss, Sayu, is a multi-stage fight with multiple platforming hazards, melee challenges, and a full display of Metronomik’s animation chops. The last boss we experienced, Yisu the child prodigy, is the one players will be facing in the Mother and Child demo that is free to download right now. This fight presumably takes place much later than the previous two, and really puts all your skills to the test.
