Game release: “Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island” (PC,PS4,Xbox One)

Classic 3D platformers seem to receive a second chance these days after years of a hiatus, and Grip Digital‘s/Right Nice Games’ Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island is a nice throwback to the good old console times.

Whatever happened to the times when lots of mascots tried to win over jump-and-run fans on different consoles? Despite not having spent my time on Nintendo consoles back in the day (missing out on Rare titles among others), I had a fair bit of 3D platforming with the Ratchet & Clank games, and by the looks of it, this could just be another installment.

Similarities to the wise-cracking Playstation duo are obvious, especially with Skylar Lynxe looking almost like a copy of Ratchet, only with Plux Owlsley not being a robot. Of course the story revolves around saving the world, like in so many other games, in this case fighting against the evil CRT who wants to turn everything into a wasteland. It remains to be seen how witty the script is and if there are any memorable characters to make this a classic, but the game certainly looks and sounds the part with some glorious, colorful planet graphics, good voice acting and music. Add in a jetpack, grappling-hook-beam, various weapons with upgrades to use, and you can almost feel the early Noughties back again.

The game is now available on PC and consoles, with the former version having a 33% discount that will last until May 26, 8AM UTC.
