One of the funniest games in the last couple of years! Yes, it's a 3D comic game. Yes, it's colourful. Yes, it's also funny for kids. Yes, the story is far fetched. Yes, the music is cool. Yes, it's not too easy but also not too hard. Yes, it's many hours of hilarious fun. Yes, the physics are good.
But you know what? The control of Octodad is a blast! YOu have 2 control modes which you switch with the middle mouse button. One is walking ... sometimes sliding ... by pressing left/right mouse for the left/right leg ... erm ... arm. The other mode is just for controling your right arm ... errr ... just another arm. While in control of your legs/arm, you move the mouse to stear it in the 3D room. The controls are really intuitive after you get used to it. Much easier than e.g. in Surgeon SImulator 2013.
Octodad is always in motion - well, it's not that easy to "stay" on 4 arms to somehow hide your appearance in a human trouser. It's a little slimy, slippery and jelly like movement. You can grab/hold things by usiong your vaccuum arm. The arms are also quite elastic and can stretch about twice it's size when holding unmovable things. You can also throw obstacles around. You also swim totally nacked just like a real octopus in the water. And have to solve lots of puzzles and quests.
I bought this game for my children, but it's so much fun, that I had to play it, too. If you like to have a good time - palay Octodad! :-)
