Created by Necrophone games and in assosiaction with Adult Swim, Jazzpunk is a schizophrenic mashup of arcade gaming, excellent comedy and a twisted story of spies and subterfuge.
And let me tell you something that you can bank in the Kremlin – THIS GAME IS FANTASTIC and I fully recommend you get this with all the speed and grace of a methadrone addict with a pad of empty prescription paper.
The art style of the game is delightfully toony with blocky characters and colourful levels aplenty. In this Alternative Cold War world, everyone is a robot and everthing is vibrant and full of energy. It’s a very simplistic style but everything is delivered in such a tight manner that it still manages to ooze style.
I actually find it hard to describe what Jazzpunk actually is as it exists as a pastische of many other gameplay styles. First Person Shooters, arcade games, golf games, tennis, survival horrors, all fall together like an Andy Pollock painting and it just...works! What could be shallow gameplay expereinces as bolstered by dialogue that is so hilarious it could make Rob Schneider actually appear funny.
The dialogue is hands down some of the best I have ever heard. I wouldn’t be able to fit in the amount of jokes and sight gags that made me really laugh as that would basically be the entire game, but trust me when I say that you will WANT to talk to all of the inhabitants in each level as each reels of some excellent quote fodder.
I fully recommend this title and anyone looking for a fresh experience filled to the brims with laughs will not regret picking this up. Jazzpunk is alone in what it is and therefore the best at what it does
