About the Game

In this side-scrolling action game, you play as Scarygirl – a girl who has been adopted by a giant intelligent octopus and is trying to figure out who the man haunting her dreams is. Traverse unique, extremely vibrant, colorful, and magical worlds in a seamless mix of 2D and 3D platforming action. You can go it alone in single-player mode or grab a friend and team up in co-op gameplay and fight alongside Bunniguru – the giant kung-fu rabbit. And as you advance, you’ll be able to purchase new weapons and new moves, and discover countless secrets along the way. It’s a mesmerizing fairytale, but the creepy-cute tough-as-nails Scarygirl is no damsel in distress!

Key features:

  • Amazing Art and Design: Surreal landscape and creatures are beautifully fantastical, created by a critically-acclaimed, award-winning artist and true to the art style that Scarygirl fans have already fallen in love with
  • A Curiously Wonderful Stand-Alone Chapter: The game features a new and exceptional storyline separate from the graphic novel and planned feature film, in which Scarygirl finally meets the mysterious man haunting her dreams
  • New Moves, Weapons & Upgrades: The game’s upgrade and combat improvement system allows Scarygirl to grow beyond her basic attacks by purchasing new moves, like an the “Anaconda Squeeze” and “Morph Tendrils”, or attachments for her tentacle arm, such as the Rage Hook
  • Co-Operative Play: While one player controls Scarygirl, a second can bring Bunniguru’s furious “Fists of Blurry” into the fray at any time. This offline feature allows the two characters to perform special moves together to overcome major challenges

The designers created an entire world with many different environments, each section with different color palettes and varied enemies. It kind of reminds me of the style used in Tim Burton's works. I'd even go as far as to recommend this game on the artwork alone, it's great eyecandy and done well. The creators included local multiplayer too for if you have someone else who wants to tag along. It's a side-scrolling platform game with collections and combo attacks built in. Some checkpoints are really stretched out, adding a bit to the challenge, but perhaps a bit TOO spaced out at times. I think the wrap-up ending animation/story was a little too short and seemed a bit rushed but the last level was a nice combo-gauntlet of previous levels.

*(I can't imagine the time I'd need to finish collecting the 16,000 gems I'm short getting the last achievement so I'm going to let that one and the 'All perfects' ride)* For those of you going for the extras, good luck!

This is a very endearing little platformer. You play as a little girl with a tentacle for an arm who is dressed as a pirate. The visuals are colourful and very stylish. The 2D platforming in a 3D environment works well. The gameplay is for the most part fun although some sections can be rather frustrating. You can use your tentacle arm to attack, fly and swing off things. As the game progresses you find health upgrades and can purchase new attacks. The story is entertaining although the ending is a bit weak. However I bought this game as I was looking for decent local co-op games. The co-op in this is akin to playing as tails during single player Sonic 2. Player 2 cannot do all the tentacle related moves player 1 can and they just end up getting left behind and respawing. This make playing as player 2 rather annoying. So I would recommend this if you are looking for a fun, quite challenging single player game not as a local co-op game.

What could have been a charming and endearing little platformer is marred critically by the fact that it's a positively terrible PC port, offering little to no customization, no proper widescreen resolutions, and bouts of random, completely mindboggling slowdown which render the action completely unplayable. The art style and stages themselves are competent, and there seems to be a decent challenge here, but there are other, much better games you should be looking at long before you reach the bottom of the barrel in which Scarygirl resides.

Why do I own this game? Because a friend gave it to me, I acutally have no reason to hate it. It's a 2d side scroller but it has 3d graphics and your character doesn't only move in one direction. Left right up down and then sometimes a path splits up and you need to choose which path to go on. The only thing I dislike about this game is that when I got it, I couldn't run it. Also that when a path splits I can hardly choose either, I've played so much skyrim that now I MUST check every nook and cranny for loot, health, mana ext. The graphics are odd but they are what they need to be and I can't remember much about the music really. Overall 7/10

Not recommending this. You cant even turn resolution up from 1280-1000 wich makes it windowed mode on my tv. Bought for coop play but advise people to buy trine 1-2 and rayman legends over this if you want good 2d platforming games.
