About This Game

What happens when DLC practices go too far? An indie developer makes a game that mocks the industry and its foibles, that's what! Defeat the bad guy, save the world and get the girl! But first you'll need to find coins to buy DLC to enable animation, sound and even pausing.

Thankfully this is just satire and all the DLC is purchased with in-game coins. But consider it a cautionary tale for the future...

Key Features:

  • Two full length campaigns: the original award-winning "DLC Quest", and the brand new "Live Freemium or Die"
  • Platforming action! Coins to collect, a princess to save, a bad guy (or two) to defeat. You like that stuff, right?
  • Over 30 different DLC packs, each providing quiet introspection on the state of the gaming industry
  • Over 20 achievements to earn and make you feel reasonably satisfied with yourself
  • Online leaderboards

Basically it\'s a game about a boy who has to collect coins and buy DLC so he can continue the story.

All the DLC\'s are like the horse armor DLC.
Not worth any money, but makes things easier.
Or in this case, the DLC\'s are not worth money but you need to buy them.

Thoroughly amusing, and even worth an occasional replay. Definitely a sweet addition to my library for a buck.

Protip: "buy" the Movement Pack DLC for the ultimate experience in basic character movement.

Good casual game with a couple of hours content depending on how much youwish to do while not making doing everything too hard or time consuming.

I played for free with family sharing but at £1.99 I'd certainly buy it.

7/10 depends on you sense of humor really.

I really liked this platformer. Controls were good (using xbox360 gamepad), and platforming wasn't too difficult, but not trivial either. It is simply a platformer where you gain additional abilities over time that help you get further. The humor was decent too. There are 2 campaigns, "DLC Quest" and "Live Freemium or Die", both of which were fun. I spent less than an hour completing the first with 100%, and 2 hours on the 2nd. Note, if you buy all DLC too quickly, you might miss some of the humor (especially the first campaign). I recommend buying as you need it. I do wish I held off on buying some in the second campaign so I didn't have to hunt so hard for the remaining coins I missed when I needed something. The only DLC I actually regret getting, is the brown filter, which just made it harder to see things. I'd rather have gone back after beating it once. I had to look up a guide only once when I was way short of money and wasn't sure what I was missing. At some point in the 2nd campaign you buy some DLC that expands the world, and you just have to know where, or you will be hunting around for a while. (5/5 stars)
