    All in all, for five dollars, you can easily have a fun time with World Gone Sour. Sure, it is a glorified commercial for Sour Patch Kids, but that doesn't stop it from being rather enjoyable. It's a competent little platformer that you and a friend on the couch can enjoy. The style is great, and the narrator is legitimately funny at times. Give it a shot.

    This is a nice XBLA platform game: it tells a story about a gum candy-man, who is dropped in the trash, and his quest to survive being "sour". The game have god 3D scenarios graphics, but in a classic 2D gameplay, where you progress through the stages (a cinema), and that have elements proportional to your size. It has a funny (actually strange) game narrator, but after sometime, his lines repeat. In the gameplay we have classic elements: jumping, wall jumping, killing enemies by jumping in their head, and collecting of little green gummy, points stars and secret items, but with some other features: you gather other gummy guys, to increase your size, to do other actions. The final score of the level is given by the amount of things you've collected, secret discovered and by sacrificing other gummy in a variety of ways (burned, melted, spiked, etc.). The game have a somewhat simple gameplay, but you can play it in coop in the same console, with nice graphics. It's a god addition for your game library, if you have some extra points to spare - my score: 7,0 / 10,0 . Full Review »
