The game doesn't work on windows 10 and you can't change compatability mode. I want a full refund.

A simple title with good pixel art and audio, but some odd performance problems that could be related just to my pc (any major action like getting hurt or picking up a weapn seemed to pause my game for a second or so).

The basic game design is solid, but not really what I was looking for. I would recommend it as a party game if you pick it up on sale, otherwise you could do a lot better for $15.

This game has all of the frustrations you feel while trying to save real money, BUT also the joy of realizing that it's not your own actual money once you've lost it! Plus it's actually fun and rewarding when you do save money! Unlike in real life. I wish saving REAL money was as enjoyable as this....

Good:
- Very nice pixel graphics

Bad

This game feels like something you'd play on the GBA. There's a lot of polish, it's easy to pick up and play, it's colorful, and it has catchy music. It might be hard to find someone to play multi with, but for what it's worth, the single player is actually pretty fun by itself.

Pre-Release Review

Mega Coin Squad is a fast paced arcade-style platformer about collecting coins and hoarding them in your giant piggy bank.

The game features colorful high quality pixel art graphics in a style similar to Scott Pilgrim. The game boasts 5 characters, with unique stats, and 4 distinct worlds each containing 4 levels.

Multiplayer is local only.

Controls are tight, working with an XBox 360 pad right out of the box without issue. Movement feels good, just slightly floaty in a way that I personally enjoy and the jump is spot on with just enough Mario in it to seem familiar right out of the gate.

Each level asks the player to collect an ever increasing amount of coins and deliver them safely to the piggy bank. To aid in accomplishing this the player is given an arsenal of moves and weapons to over come obstacles and enemies including a multi-direction charge ability that clears enemies and blocks, assault rifles and rocket launchers to dispatch baddies and coin magnets and spawners to help you hit your goal and fill your bank.

I enjoyed this game immensely and recommend it on the strength of the graphics, music and single player experience alone.

Adult Swim Games has an established track record of publishing quirky, off the wall indie games. These are often inspired by old 8-bit classics from past console generations and their newest release is no exception. Mega Coin Squad is clearly inspired by Super Mario 3 and it makes no attempt at hiding this fact, emulating the look and feel of the NES classic while adding its own twist on the concept.

Charge, hoard and destroy!


This polished 2D-Action-Platformer is ruthlessly easy to understand and frantic to play - especially with local friends.

Imagine the action-laden gameplay of your typical Mario-Game, spiced up by being able to charge in four directions. Now imagine being almost invulnerable while charging, as well as being able to destroy blocks. By now you should feel very mobile and with new exciting combat-options to explore.

This fun can be combined with up to three friends in four different, yet equally entertaining modes of competitive multiplayer.


While this game isn't heavy on content and extras by any means, it really struck me and my friends by its quality: the gameplay feels fresh, well balanced and highly dynamic, the presentation feels coherent and quite stylish, the menus are very easy and effective to navigate.

If you like your games to to be fun, direct, unique and with a little challenge, you should get this game.

With the time I've spent on the game already I see myself and friends playing this when given any chance to play against each other. Who doesn't love a dorky game like this? 10 out of 10!

"A fun, retro themed platformer that beautifully mixes players’ greed for gold coins and wanton destruction. A complete absence of an online component is disappointing, but the local multiplayer is a chaotically fun way to spend time with friends."

Mega Coin Squad is a 2D Platformer with a difference. Instead of getting from point A to Point B you're set free in an arena full of coins. Your aim is to collect them and fill up the Piggy Bank in the middle of the level. Sounds simple but MCS can be extremely challenging and thankfully never frustrating.

Mega Coin Squad will keep you coin collecting for hours and with a multiplayer that can rival big-guns like Fowerfall, this is a complete package from a fantastic developer. Can't recommend it enough.
