This game is so beautifully done. It's short but sweet and has replayability as different characters. The music and level design along with the beautiful style are all top notch. A must have!

Holy ♥♥♥♥.

Freedom Planet (merica) isn't really that type of game probably for me, I thought at first. Boy, I was wrong for sure.

To put it short, I never really liked huge levels with a lot to speedrun with. I like it short and sweet, not too much to worry about that you miss something inbetween. Well, excpet for a few games of course. And this is that kind of piece.

GalaxyTrail does what Segadon't (kill me for this). Take the stuff that made sonic great, have your own IP and bam, you get this.

You got 3 characters to choose from, one unlocked after completing Stage 2. 2 of them have their own story, and depending on choosing the character, the story changes, so it makes it really worth going in a 2nd time! Every char has a diffirent playstyle, and since I am a total noob in such kind of fast-paced levels I went with Lilac. She features a quick spin that doesn't only increase your height a bit, but also acts like an attacks with invincible frames. Her Special is a dash on forward the direction you are aiming at, however it drains all your energy and needs a few seconds to recharge. Kind of like the Spinball Dash in Sonic, only that you can't spam it. Spamming is also that kind of thing, actual spamming through bosses won't keep you alive. Champ, use your brain! You have one! I assume...

The story is based around that some kind of stone seems to be in danger thanks for losing it's energy, and everyone goes ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, wants it to fix their kingdom and then some villan alien came and basically ♥♥♥♥s ♥♥♥♥ over. The story seems bizzare, trust me, it is featuring actual drama that you care about. I mean, you should. Why would you EVER deny the cuteness of these 3 adorable kids? HM?

All stages have some kind of new mechanic introduced, for example the typical keycard unlocking, the bouncy ball that gets your little ♥♥♥ very high up to the charts of the roof, and even a little dance scene. Stand a few seconds still and see what happends :3.

The campain itself seems to be short, but how about some collectables, like cards, or achievements. For the real hardcore experience, you play through the whole campain without dieing once, or completing it in under 90 minutes (casual lol). The game features 4 simple difficulties, Normal is the way to go if you want it challenging but not frustrating. I probably won't be that hardcore gamer and log in 200 hrs into this, but it should keep you and me of course busy. Busy just like my will to probably do something productive for once.

There is so much I could talk more without spoliering anything. So grab it, try it, and love it! It's so underrated. So ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ much.

This has been on my wishlist for a short while, and was gifted to me as a raffle prize from a wonderful community.

What can I say about this game that isn't already obviouse? It's a 16-bit esque side-scrolling adventure game. Need I say more?

Well.....I kinda have to, because just that alone doesn't do the game justice at all. It's 100% ♥♥♥♥ing amazing! Time to break it down.
(scale 1-5)

Gameplay - 5: Simply put, this game is FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN! Pinkie Pie herself wouldn't be able to put it down (yes, I will use pony references sometimes, abiet, not often). This game combines the speed of Sonic the Hedgehog, the enemy trouncing of SMB (defeating them by landing on their heads mechanic), and normal brawling attacks of any beat-em-up out there. Not big on any kind of special moves, but the charge dash feature allows for wall-to-wall climbing. The action is fast-paced and never seems dull. You will find familiar power-ups akin to Sonic. Most of this game borrows mechanics heavily from the Sonic universe, including air bubbles and shields, but that's not a bad thing here. The life meter is a huge welcome over one-hit kills or 1 ring level rushing. There's also at least one other character you can select from in the very beginning of the game (as of this writing, that's all I can confirm right now) with the possibility of other playable characters, and, from the looks of it, might play a little differently. I will update this review to reflect on that when I use at least the other initial selectable character.

Controls - 4.75: The controls are absolutely perfect and customizable, however, the .25 knock is only because the keyboard controls might put some people off. In this day and age, side-scrollers DEMAND controllers, but the keyboard does work fairly well. Best with a controller, but the only small gripe I have is you need to go to the options menu in order to activate controller controls (at least, I had to do that before my 360 wired gamepad would work). Other than that, the controls are just about as flawless as you can get from a game like this.

Graphics - 5: Now, I know a 16 bit era esque game isn't going to look the best compared to other games, but it DOESN'T NEED TO HAVE ALL THE FLASH OF TODAY'S GAMES TO LOOK FANTASTIC! The graphics do an amazing job with the environment details and hazards abound. The character models move fluidly and are very well designed. The hit detection is spot-on perfect, so you never feel like you missed a hit on an enemy as the hit boxes are exactly where they need to be put. Colors spewed across the levels are vibrant and bright where they need to be, and dark and gloomy in the undergound areas without feeling like it's too dark to see any action.

Sound - 4: This may seem like a slight to steep hit, but let me explain a few things before you rant off about this score. The music is simply amazing and each level will have you nearly moving to the beat of the music while you blaze through the level. HOWEVER, the voice acting seems a bit forced. I will say the voices do fit the characters very well, but sometimes, the acting itself feels a little forced. Sound dapeners and effects, such as reverbs would have worked. The clean microphone recordings are great and all, but when it calls for maybe a bit of gritty work, it sounds too clean at points. There are a few times when you might find the voices a bit robotic and maybe a bit monotone, but don't let this stop you. The voice work is good, just needs a bit more work. This is the only bite I will take from all this.

The bottom line: 4.85: Fans of side-scrollers will find tons to love about this game. Small nuances aside, I had to pull myself away from the action to write this review. This was BEGGING to be written as soon as possible. I put Freedom Planet up there with Super Mario Bros., Sonic the Hedgehot (Genesis era, because the newer Sonics are killing the mascot), and Shantae (can't get enough BUTT WIGGLES and hair-whipping action). All in all, there's lots to be loved here. The challenge never feels extremely difficult, but not a walk in the park either. Collectables strewn across each level and challenging boss battles make this game appealing to just about anyone looking for a good trip back down memory lane or an introduction of what Sonic could have continued becoming. If a sequel ever does come out (not sure how the story ends as of this writing, so not sure if it's open ended for one), I'd definitely like to see more and any welcomed improvements.

Freedom Planet is overall one of the best games I have ever seen.

I would definitely recommend it to any gamer in general, because of the amount of variety and oddity that it contains! There are even many secrets to find, including easter eggs in the form of bloopers, which I should admit is really cool.

There are two gamemodes: Adventure and Classic.
So if you just want core gameplay, choose Classic.
If you want both story and gameplay, then choose Adventure!

In my opinion, I would actually prefer this over Undertale.
This soundtrack even puts the soundtrack of Undertale to shame!

Well, that's all I can think of.
Oh yeah, Timtams currency exchange program.
Okay, bye!

it's fun, i like that you can skip the story mode cutscenes because i just want to play the game without watching the plot. one nitpick is that the levels are a bit too long, so i get a bit tired when playing them

Do you miss the ol'good times of the Sega Genesis?
Do you also miss the golden years of Sonic The Hedgehog?

Well... This is better than that.

Enter Freedom Planet. A indie game who despite its deceiving looks.. could very well destroy its competition with its engaging and fun gameplay reminiscing from the old genesis era. Awesome soundtrack, Lovable characters (Milla bein my favorite) and a simple yet fun adventure ideal for all gamers to try out. Not to mention the replay value and the enticing easter eggs you find along the way make it have more value than its price is worth. Definitely worth to spawn a franchise that i'd surely look forward to play from now on. Highly recommend!

A fantastic display and addicting gameplay that's easy to learn and a lifetime to master. Unique levels, superb story and voice acting! If that's not your thing, classic mode is also fantastic in that option. The soundtrack is 100% worth it. Get use to unique levels and assets every level along the way. I can't praise it enough. The only hookups I can think of is that the controls can be a bit dodgy when trying to switch from keyboard to gamepad, or vice versa, but its quick to fix and forget about. Adventure mode cinematics can take up a lot of time, but again, If you don't like it, you can always skip them, or play the classic mode and forgo them entirely. If you're looking for something new and interesting, or are a fan of this type of side scrolling action game, you won't walk away dissapointed. I don't often type reviews, but this is as honest and non-biased I can be about it. I hope everyone who endulges can enjoy this.

Freedom Planet is an amazing callback to the Mascot Platformer Genre from the SNES era. the three main characters play like different familiar mascots. sadly, the cuscenes are extremely cheesy and sometimes take an oddly dark turn, ruining the cheerful and fun mood you had before. they also tend to be extremely long, lasting several miniutes. thankfully, the cutscenes aren't necisarilly required to play and you can skip all the cutscenes by playing in classic mode. also, the keyboard controls are clunky at best dispite you being able to reassign the keys, so I would reccomend playing it with a controller.

-Art style is absolutely wonderful. Not really a fan of pixel-y tryhard retro ♥♥♥♥, but it's a nice step away from the gritty realism of modern games
-Fun game in general; controls well, addictive, entertaining

-You are a furry
-You talk to furries
-Everything is furries

3/10, if you like this game you are a furfag

A lot of people are comparing this to Sonic, but as someone who doesn't like classic Sonic I can confirm that this game is amazing anyway. It definitely has elements from Sonic, but does a lot of new things as well. For example: actual combat instead of killing everyone in one hit with the only attack you have (which makes especially boss fights a lot more fun, but regular stages as well), a great story (at least in my opinion), a lot of different cool special abilities, much better level design (again in my opinion, either way it's different), and a lot of other stuff that I can't think of right now (I'd probably have to play more classic Sonic to see all the stuff that's different but I really don't want to) but that's okay because I think I made my point anyway. Each of these things still make the game very different from Sonic, despite the similarities.

Also I love the character designs and the characters and the story and the music and everything really.
