  • Summary: Gamers will take on the miniature role of a lost Sour Patch Kid in a stylized human-sized world, guiding the hero through the sticky floors of a movie theater, across the counter of a concession stand, and other unique and oversized environments. Joining forces with fellow lost Sour Patch Kids, players will use a combination of jumps, twists and puzzle-solving to negotiate and overcome larger than life obstacles. Along the way, they will battle unusual candy enemies, escape from deranged humans, and face-off against bizarre creatures including one very angry wad of sticky chewing gum. Expand

    The very definition of a pleasant surprise, World Gone Sour proves that the advergame doesn't have to live in the land of mediocrity. For a mere 5 bucks, this is a sold platformer with a wicked sense of humor.

    The worlds are fun to explore and navigation captures the right balance between challenging and doable. Checkpoints are generous and things you've already killed or collected stay that way so backtracking isn't an issue.

    Whether alone or with a friend via local co-op, World Gone Sour can be strangely satisfying. While it's a game that has its own set of problems, and while those problems hold the overall experience back, we're talking about a five dollar download here.

    Control issues taint the overall experience of the otherwise enjoyable World Gone Sour.

    When I first began playing World Gone Sour, I was disappointed with the technical flaws of the game. But as I progressed, it started to stick to me like the wet gummy I was controlling. Perhaps it's the hilarious product branding, or the ability to send Sour Patch Kids to their doom, or maybe it's the fact that this simple adventure is only five bucks.
  6. For a $5 download, there is some morbid fun to be found, but the flaws can be quite rage inducing. [July 2012, p.85]

    World Gone Sour just goes to remind us all about the reputation licensed games have earned over the past decade or two: They suck. And this is a sweet-and-sour steamer.
