* OrangeBlueContrast: Just look at the box art or any screenshot, it's a relentless barrage of orange and teal. Because the gameplay asks for two contrasting colors, and black and white were already taken by ''{{Ikaruga}}'', it is somewhat understandable.

* CollectionSidequest: Of the usual "hidden item" variety. Most of the time you just get some concept art out of it, although you do ultimately get the ability to stick to walls longer, reveal all large money pots in the game and double the strenght of your melee attack if you get enough of them.

* EverythingTryingToKillYou: Spiders, flowers, bugs, you name it: if it's ColorCodedForYourConvinience and not inanimate, chances are it's going to either eat you or shoot a lot of bullets at you and then eat you.

''Outland'' is an adventure platformer game, developed by Creator/{{Housemarque}} and published by Ubisoft.
Ubisoft for the XboxLiveArcade and {{Playstation 3}} as a downloadable budget title. It is known for combining {{Metroidvania}}, BulletHell and [[PlatformGame platforming]], and is heavily influenced by ''Videogame/{{Ikaruga}}''.



''Outland'' plays much like a 2D ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' game, with the player being capable of jumping and interacting fluidly with the environment, and fighting with a sword and various special abilities. Unique to the game is the ''[[Videogame/{{Ikaruga}} Ikaruga]]''-like colour switching mechanic: most game objects come in a blue or red colour, and the player eventually gains the ability to switch between the two colours as well. Matching the colour of an enemy makes both sides deal reduced damage to each other, and allows the player to absorb bullets, while contrasting it has the opposite effect; similarly, coloured objects are only solid to the player when the colour is matched. The game is not a {{Metroidvania}} in the strictest sense; although the world mostly remains open to be explored as the game progresses, each level is linear, with only small rewards for backtracking later on. Rather than exploration, the focus is on action, platforming and puzzles.

* MetroidVaniaMetroidVania: Although a fairly linear game, with half the upgrades found focusing on improving combat abilities and the other half having mostly limited interactions with the game world, the game is open to explore at the player's leisure, albeit with limited rewards.

* DemonicSpiders: Surprisingly enough, the literal giant ones (as well as the extra-large variety) aren't that bad since the former are more or less the first enemy you come across and latter aren't that much different from the normal variety besides their size and ability to take more hits. The smaller ones are far more annoying, since they either shoot arching streams of projectiles at your general direction or leap at you, and you can't tell kind they are until they attack.

* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: At least 2 types of warrior enemies carry one. Especially annoying with the GiantMook variety, since you can only jump over them to hit them from the back right after they attack: try jumping too early and you'll hit their head or their mace or try getting too close before jumping and you'll hit their prone mace.
* Mayincatec: The aesthetics ''ooze'' this, from the random artwork on the walls to the intricate carvings to the humanoid enemies' armor and even to the bosses. Look no further than [[spoiler:the Winged Serpent]], another name for [[spoiler:Quetzalcoatl]].

[[caption-width-right:318:{{Ikaruga}}, eat your heart out.]]
Outland is an adventure platformer game, published by Ubisoft.

An unnamed man experiences bizarre dreams every night, and no medicine can rid him of them. Exhausted and compelled to find answers, he visits a shaman who tells him a tale of what is occurring. Thirty millennia ago, two divine sisters, [[LightIsNotGood one of light]] and [[DarkIsEvil one of shadow]], created the world, and ''both of them'' wished to destroy it afterwards. A hero rose up and, using his own soul, bound them both to the earth. The man is the {{Reincarnation}} of that hero, and the fact that he's back means the sisters will rise again too. Therefore TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt is at hand, and it's up to this new hero to rise up and begin SavingTheWorld.
