The Riftbreaker is an action game enriched with tower defense and action RPG elements. The game was developed by an independent Polish team Exor Studios, whose portfolio includes, among other things, the warmly-received X-Morph: Defense.
The Riftbreaker takes us into the distant future where mankind managed to master the technology of teleportation, which in turn opened the possibility of colonization of other planets. The main character of the game is captain Ashley S. Novak, one of the Riftbreakers - elite units combining scientists and commandos. The protagonist travels one way to planet Galatea 37, located on the fringe of the Milky Way, and her task is to establish a bridgehead and open a wormhole leading to Earth. The fact that Captain Novak has a versatile mecha-armor, which she calls Mr. Riggs, makes things a little easier.
In The Riftbreaker we observe the action from bird's eye view. The devs give us a vast world overgrown with exotic, unknown vegetation and inhabited by alien, often aggressive animal species. The survival in the wilderness is ensured by the aforementioned armor, the equipment of which can be adapted to the individual style of play. Nothing stands in the way of supplying it with an energy blade, a flame thrower, a machine gun or even a powerful mortar.
Despite the dangers lurking almost everywhere, it is necessary to travel the globe because in its corners we can come across a variety of resources and rare minerals necessary to build the base. In order to open a portal leading to Earth, the protagonist must build a network of factories, mines, and refineries, as well as laboratories and power plants within its premises. In addition, Captain Novak must build advanced posts to ensure easy access to resources,
Of course, all this does not escape the attention of the dangerous creatures inhabiting Galatea 37, who attack Ashley's headquarters every day. In order to increase her chances of survival, the woman has to take care of her defense by building walls and towers around the base, as well as various barriers and gates. Battles against enemies also offer an opportunity for development, as the defeated enemies can be used to collect samples for research, as well as rare substances useful for developing new technologies, buildings, and finally weapons and tools for Mr. Riggs.
Although, The Riftbreaker can be played only solo, thanks to the support for streaming platforms, other players can participate in our game, both by posing various challenges and helping us play.
The Riftbreaker is powered by Exor Studios' proprietary technology called Schmetterling 2.0. The three-dimensional visuals of the game are of high quality, and we can enjoy, above all, the diverse and detailed environment.
