Thanks to Adult Swim Games and Big Pixel Studios for giving me the chance to play, and review this game early.
Lots of coin grabbing, platforming, blasting fun. Quite a challenging game, with a retro arcade style feel, and an awesome sound track.
There are 5 characters to choose from, each having their own strengths and weaknesses. You get rewarded with diamonds each level in three ways:
(1) If you bank all your coins in one bankingi
(2) If you lose no lives(you get 3 each round)
(3) If you beat the clock.
I LPd this game live at www.twitch.tv/zombspawn, and the people in chat were really liking what they saw. Those people now want this game.
Of course, I am a noob, but I accept this challenging game, and will beat it. I plan on playing it through it's entirety in a future LP. My hand and eye coordination is not like it used to be, but having grown up on platformers, this is really an awesome one.
The intuitive controls are easy to master, and are best played with an Xbox 360 controller. I am not sure if other controller brands world, but I am guessing they will.
The overworld is similar to Mario games, where you travel from stage to stage.
My only wish is that there was an option for a certain ammount of continues. Losing in one round, can set you back to the begining round of that stage.
Nonetheless, I give this game a Mega Recommendtion, and encourage everyone to buy this game when it is released on August 15, 2014. :-)
I rate this game at a 4/5
