Short Review (Review copy provided by Zoink Games)
This game is a “classic” I guess I would say since it was released almost 5 years ago and was highly received back then. Returning back to this game after playing it on the PC years ago was a god send. I loved this game back then but to take it on the go and play for a few minutes or take an item to the next person is great. The game is fairly short at around 4-5 hours depending on how fast you do sections but the game is well worth its time and price. The game is a platforming quest hunting game that will just be take this item to this person and do that repeatedly until you beat the game while jumping from place to place to get to said person. The game is extremely funny if you like stupid funny movies or comedy since the first chapter is about making sure a guy doesn’t commit suicide so you need to get him a new pair of teeth so the woman he loves sees that he has great teeth. That is the sort of humor you will have to like to enjoy the game which I thought was funny from start to beginning.
Simple icon nothing really special just right to the point:
Ray is just an ordinary man with an normal life until one day he is hit in the head and knocked out by a canister that fell out of a plan. Something crawls out of it as he falls into a coma. While unconscious he wakes up and finds a hand if attached to his head. He has to wake himself up by doing varies tasks then once awake in the real world finds that his hand if bandaged up. After removing the bandage the hand appears again. Then the journey to find out what happened begins as now his hand can read minds and rip objects and attach them to other things.
It is a fairly easy game that is more story driven than anything else. It is a simple grab this item and take to another character in the stage. The game is broken up into different chapters with cut scenes between each one. You will always have to jump around the stage to get to certain locations and you will always have to take items to other characters. Its simple but effective since characters’ minds will need to be read to know what they need or it will be just enough information that you need to piece together what they need.
This is a great game and one that I’ve played multiple times over the years so to be able to take it with me places is even better. I have been sharing it with family and friends over the last few weeks. My nephew liked the idea of it but didn’t understand how to do anything in the game so many this game is too much for anyone under the age of 6. My cousin thought it was great but too short but I did run it through with her sitting next to me so she didn’t do any work to get the ending as she just watched me played from start to beginning.
I would say go for it! It is a great game that I am happy to play once again on the Switch if anything $9.99 would be the best price since it would have a better ratio of $1 per hour but it is a game everyone needs to play at least once in their lives.
I would give this game a 9 out of 10!
Just another day and a day not missed! So close to breaking the record for the month around 500 views so this should be able to put me over it within the next 24-48 hours. Going to put out another review every day until the end of the year to catch up but it will most likely be Kid Tripp, Dead Synchroncity, End is Nigh, and Letter Quest. With those out of the way I only have a handful of review codes left to catch up on and then back to emailing more developers since Pedro has been doing that work for the last two weeks after he was able to get his own review copy. Giveaway is still going just a few more days left so get on it!
