Game release: “The Adventure Pals” (PC,PS4,Xbox One,Nintendo Switch)

Colorful platformers have gained momentum in the indie scene, with Massive Monster‘s The Adventure Pals providing enough fun in a cartoon-style universe.

Writing about indie games can be tough, as there are so many releases, and it can actually become quite tiresome to see the same pixel art and listen to the same chiptunes. But then some games come along that again reignite the love for the platforming genre. Cuphead was one such release, and now it seems that The Adventure Pals is another contender for beautiful cartoon art and much creativity in game design.

The story about a boy riding on his giraffe and being helped by a pet rock in order to save his dad from being turned into a hot dog by the evil Mr. B already sounds pretty crazy. But it doesn’t end there, because during his platforming journey he encounters zombie pirate cats and post-apocalyptic dinosaurs among other strange beasts and people in five distinct worlds. Being part platformer and part RPG with townsfolk who give quests, items and other goodies to buy, and stats to improve by leveling up, it’s certainly a diverse genre mix that can also be played in local co-op.

The hand-drawn backgrounds and lovingly animated characters are amazing to look at, and as the bosses are epic and ridiculous at the same time, this should be a very memorable experience indeed, one that also seems to be more accessible to beginners than the hardcore Cuphead was. Of course one shouldn’t compare these games, as The Adventure Pals has an RPG approach, but what they share is that they look and sound like a lot of great fun. The game is now available on PC as well as on most consoles. There isn’t any launch discount, but as the price isn’t very high, one should still support this title and the developer.
