Super Perils of Baking is a 16 bit, 2D side scrolling platformer and an ode to the retro game genre in terms of variety, difficulty and platformer peril. It’s jam packed with things to do and collect but you’ll need a sprinkling of rage induced dopamine to get you through the enemies, highs and lows. There’s hours of fun that’s certainly worth your time, especially for the price point.
Played the original a while ago. This is such a huge improvement, the challenes are super fun and chasing the plat was hard but really rewarding. Can't reccomend it more for anyone looking for a good ol' classic.
While Super Perils of Baking can feel a tad too generic at times, then, is has to lot to offer for its modest price. It evokes the spirit of 90s platformers that were never as popular as the big hitters – games like Zool, Cool Spot and Boogerman. And so for those who yearn for a new platforming experience that relishes in that old-school feel, it’ll go down a storm. Perhaps the worst thing about it is its soundtrack, but that can be easily remedied. Ultimately, it will never be remembered as a classic, but Super Perils of Baking can at least remind you of the golden days of the genre.
I bought the game to support Lillymo and Colin. I think the game looks pretty good and the writing is fun. The mechanics are rough. The whole game is about jumping (platformer) but that's the worst part. They also throw enemies and drop spikes at times where all you can do is eat the damage.
I'll always support Lillymo and have played all their games, but this was a big miss for me. More annoying and frustrating than fun. I was relieved when I finally got through all 55 levels. Looking forward to their next effort.
