Reviews

“The conclusion is beautiful in its use of game mechanics to make the player feel a loss of ability. By making old obstacles suddenly seem impossible, it shows the player what it feels like to surrender oneself to encroaching inevitability, to just give up and embrace what’s coming.”
Pure Sophistry

“Potatoman Seeks the Troof is an experience well worth having. It’s teeming with clever writing and charm, not to mention an appearance and soundtrack that do a fantastic job of scratching that nostalgia itch.”
Gamezebo

“Potatoman has the best jump in the history of video games, seriously.”

That's a truly old school and funny arcade game, unfortunately short. The first game took me an hour, the second 10min. Requires a controller to fully enjoy.

Been playing this game on and off since I bought it off-Steam about a year and a half ago, so don't be bothered by Steam saying I've hardly played it.

First of all, this game has, without a doubt, the greatest launch trailer known to mankind: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnAeHNZAbNs

Second, this is a pretty decent — but also pretty unfair — platformer. Unfair in the sense that, if you're reasonably skilled at platforming, you'll most likely die to randomness (falling eggs, rocks, etc.) way more than anything else. Normally I'd recommend people stay far, far away from games that utilize randomness as a way to increase difficulty, but in this game it works. It works because the randomness fits perfectly in with the game — both thematically and gameplay-wise. And the game is short enough that the random deaths don't become too frustrating. (I realize that that sounded a lot like a backhanded compliment, but I assure you, it isn't meant as such.) It's the kind of game that makes me wish I had friends who were interested in platformers so I could share the experience with them.

Third, the game is hilarious and silly. Stop worrying and learn to love the troof.

Why are we here? What's the purpose? Who or What are we??

In a world where we are constantly busy with and distracted by what's happening, we don't often make it a priority to stop and investigate what is really going on.

Potatoman takes this time, and endures a harrowing platfoming journey to seek out and discover for himself what is the TROOF!

Wisdom and mis-direction is found in all of the characters he encounters. Does anyone actually know the Troof?

While it can be challenging at times, Potatoman Seeks the Troof is rewarding and a lot of fun. There's also a fantastic Soundtrack by Miles Tilmann.

Go forth and Seek the Troof!

The truth about the troof is it isn't a dish for everyone but it's best served with a dancing potato on the side if you are willing to see it through.

Bon Appétit!

Now, I believe I got this game in a bundle, so price has no influence on my decision. I'd give this game a somewhat lack-luster description of "I wanna be the guy" for the Atari. Now, the game isn't bad, but it is not a game for me. humerous at points, I found the dialogue, well, not very interesting. and the rage-inducing tricks were fun - until they became completely random, with no discernable pattern to allow me to get by. That's where I had a problem. Maybe I'm just bad at the game, but it isn't really my cup of tea. take it for what you will

All in all, if you liked "I wanna be the guy" this game may be for you, but it also may not be. you decide.

This is a 30 minutes* length hard-as-hell-first-time-platformer, where you have to pay attention to the movement of your "foes" throughout gameplay. You drive your potatoman through your journey to get your alien pyramid shaped things back. The first time you play this game you think: OMG! It's hard!... The second time, you know what to do and the behaviour of your foes, so it becomes easier.

* 30 minutes, after you play it and die several times :D

Actually, it is fun and it is perfect for those rainy days.

Incredibly short, psychedelically inspired, and charmingly written are the ways I'd describe this deliciously baked, troof seeking trek set forth by a lively potato and his barnyard friend Mr. Cow.

It took an hour to complete the game twice for both achievements. So if that's a deal breaker for you, maybe you just can't handle the troof.
