In college the Angry Video Game Nerd was a regular staple in my video game humor diet. Now he's got a game of his own. Not a homebrew. Not a mod. Not a token character in a mobile device game but a real game!
The good: The sound is top-notch. The graphics are what you'd expect from a great 8-bit/16-bit platformer. There's no difficulty in differentiating anything from anything else. The levels are challenging so you don't feel bored or any tedium setting in.
The bad: This game is HARD. Even on EASY. Some of the stuff like spikes you'd think would one-hit kill you only damage you and enemies like Deathbloks (some of which blink in and out of existence) will outright kill you. enemies are cheap, specifically the "moving hazard" enemies (suns, fireballs, stars, etc.) don't outright kill you but they can either knock you into a pit or knock you into something more deadly (like a Deathblok). The death screens are randomly generated, which sometimes means while the English is correct, the words don't fit. I have gotten some laughs from the game.
Overall this game isn't for babies. This game isn't even for kids. This game is for adult gamers that like a challenge. I hear people whining about the Deathbloks and to be honest they fail to realize that there's a whole game beyond the Deathbloks they're missing out on. If you're going to discount an entire game based on who someone said about one thing, then you're missing out on some important experiences in life. And that's kind of how guys like the AVGN go into playing terrible games. Or games in general.
This game is great. I had fun playing it, even though I was frustrated at times. AVGN should be proud of endorsing this game because it was well worth the money.
