"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 an original and entertaining local multiplayer game with loads of replayability.

Each game is composed of several rounds of randomly chosen (or create your own playlist) game modes. In between each round you get character powerups based on your rank in the last game.

The game modes consist of a simple deathmatch, a mode where you have to collect and bank the most coins, hold the rainbow for a certain amount of time, or collect a set number of megacoins (that spawn one at a time) and bank them to win. These modes are all quite different and fun.

Mega Coin Squad is a very nice addition to any local multiplayer lineup.

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.

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!
