Cayon Cappers is a 2D plat former that usually handles pretty well, you unlock other characters as you get higher scores on levels (by unlocking stars). The whole concept of this platformer is to "collect all the things", after you collect the required items a portal opens and you finish the level.-Detailed breakdown review-Story:
I'm under the impression that you're an explorer, inside a canyon, capping gems, coins, fruit, and treasure boxes. There are 10 levels in each world, and 5 worlds to play through, each with their own "theme". Don't get too excited though, I saw little to no change in environment, only scaling difficulty at a dramatic rate, and different music.
Most platformers don't have much of a story, you're supposed to like them because of their gameplay. Sorry, your princess is in another castle. There really isn't much else to say about the story, it's uninteresting, if barely existing at all.Game Play:
I heard a great man once said, "There's a difference between difficulty, and a broken game." (I think it was either JohnTron, or ExtraCredits) As much as I wanted to hate Cayon Cappers for being a hard game, I didn't hate it until I ran into glitches.
I would say 90% of the game is glitch free, but I ran into glitches that would respawn me in a kill zone, (aka: I would spawn and then insta-die. Good stuff) this type of failiure is one of the most frustrating that any gamer would need to endure. One particular spot on the LAST LEVEL of the LAST WORLD, I was killed and ran out of time while a bomb ticked to my immanent failure, because I kept respawning under a swinging axe blade of death. ...After something like that you can only quit the game before you go Super Saiyan from Rage. Achievements:
The first few achievements are freebie's, you literally get one for just playing called "the easiest achievement you will get". The toughest achievements are the "complete 100%" type. So if you're aiming for achievements this is doable, but only if you're good at platformers. I would originally say "this is an easy 100% for achievements", but I have reversed my opinion since world 4. I now lack 3 stars on one level: the last one. I have gotten 9000 points and still haven't gotten 3 stars. (finished it about 3 times) Price:
I got this game for free, so I can't complain too much here, but the price for Canyon Cappers $6.99, which is a pretty high price, but if you know you love playing all playformers, you can probably make it worth it. But it would be best to get the game on sale. Conclusion:
I initially thought "yes! a playformer I can beat", but since the last two worlds were so brutal, my disposition has soured for this game. Additionally this game just make me feel bad for being bad, because the characters have huge smiles on their faces, and each jump is a flip.
To recap, the story was nonexistent. the gameplay was painful. Achievements were pretty doable (and at times the only motivation for me). The price was reasonable. This game will appeal to people who love platformers and can over look a "childish" graphic style.
