    Adventure Pals is a great platformer for all ages. From the great, wacky story and visuals to the tight controls and smart progression systems, It has something for the whole family. Make no mistakes this is a family game that really is fun to play together. With it coming to all platforms April 3 there really is little reason not to pick up this side scrolling, platforming gem.

    A fun and funny 2D platformer whose infectious sense of humour comes through clearly in the visuals, the script, and the gameplay.

    A wonderfully charming platformer than has more character in the first five minutes than some manage in their entirety. The inclusion of local co-op means you can make your way through the story with a friend and share the weirdness together.

    The Adventure Pals is fun and charming. It doesn't do anything particularly unique, but we did have a great time playing it.

    The Adventure Pals is a cartoonish romp with bombastic platforming gameplay that’s as addictive as it is silly. Easy controls and eye-popping art contribute to a candy-sweet experience — one that ultimately leaves you wanting something a little more substantial.

    This game consist of 5 different worlds, 21 different quests and took me around 9 hours to complete…
    The is a really charming game visually...
    it feels very cartoon network style with its goofy animations and characters...
    The characters and art of this game save this what otherwise is a pretty bland experience..
    There were some funny moments sprinkled in here with different npcs, but the dialog quickly just becomes nonsense that I had no interest in reading...
    And the levels are decently fun to get through... but the get stale fairly quickly…
    The objective of a quest is go to a section marked on your map and get from checkpoint to checkpoint 5 times, and at the end of the final checkpoint in an area is the gem to move on..
    However there are no checkpoints in between these mini levels within the levels you have to get from your well to the next will without dying or the current mini level you’re in will reset itself..
    Which honestly isn’t a big deal... it can actually be really helpful at times as there is an xp system here...
    you have a sword for combat, and you’re accompanied by your birthday giraffe and a rock to help you with platforming and mild combat help as well.. Enemies drop xp which allows you to pick one of 3 upgrades... all of which you’ll have by the end of the game, but these upgrades can give you health by doing damage, it can make the xp drops and coins magnetic to your, make enemies drop pickups... all the way to the max level of 21 which is easily reached before the games end…
    these item drops are useful in combat and range from health pickups, invincibility potions, and bombs..
    There are moments you can skip over enemies and some moments where you’ll have to defeat enemies in an area to move on, and you’ll basically be throwing switches, pulling levels... searching for cupcakes to turn in for a random cosmetic item, searching for sticker packs, and collecting cash to unlock chests throughout levels that also contain consumable items and you can buy these items at shops
    all of this looks and sounds great.. And at first it actually is great...
    The gameplay is smooth and fluent... the combat is engaging, you’ll have to dodge spongier enemies... you’ll later have to deal with enemies that heal during battle and some that have ranged attacks..
    However unfortunately all 9 hours of this game feels exactly the same
    And that could come down to the nature of these types of games where the platforming is a mix of vertical and horizontal, it’s much harder to tell a story and change things up in every level like a Mario game does for example.. And this game suffers by this fact...
    there are a few neat moments here with its switches and simple puzzles... but these moments are so rare…
    The only change up is that each of the world end in a super simple boss battle to take you to a new world and complete another 25 mini levels that all feel the same..
    They tried… there’s new enemies and picks ups as the game goes on... there’s even a water world…
    But nothing mixes the gameplay up enough…
    The Adventure Pals is an enjoyable and cute looking game.. But it’s a monotonous game that overstays its welcome.
    I give the adventure pals
    A 6.5/10

    Ainda que seja tecnicamente competente, The Adventure Pals infelizmente se torna esquecível por causa da falta de ambição dos desenvolvedores.Ainda que seja tecnicamente competente, The Adventure Pals infelizmente se torna esquecível por causa da falta de ambição dos desenvolvedores. Pelo medo de errar, a Massive Monster se manteve em sua zona de conforto, condenando o jogo à mediocridade. Ele ainda pode ser um passatempo divertido, porém, em especial se jogado com um amigo.

Wanted something straight forward and got exactly that. Gameplay is very monotonous and easy. There are no bosses to speak of, at least half way in where I stopped playing. Enemy design and level design are mediocre. BUT the tone of the game is great and that's really what makes this a 7 instead of a 6. Expand
