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.
