  • Summary: Awesome Pea is a classic run-and-jump platformer, in which you must help the greedy Pea in his insatiable quest for gold. Dangerous dungeons, deceptively beautiful nature, hidden deadly traps, and many MANY coins await you.

    There’s nothing inherently special about the platforming, so if it plans to lean heavily on visual nostalgia, it needs to do it well. Awesome Pea isn’t a bad game, but it’s probably best suited for players who want to re-embrace childhood after their Mom sold their Game Boy for $5 at a yard sale back in ’97. For everyone else, I’d suggest a pass on this one.

    A precise, challenging, laser-focused platformer that lacks the joyful sense of movement, ingenuity and sheer generosity of its inspiration. Awesome Pea might emulate the look and feel of the Game Boy classics, but it lacks their soul.

    Awesome Pea lacks any compelling hook or element that separates it from other platformers. Presentation-wise, it manages to emulate what you might see on the Game Boy, but it’s less interesting and fun than the majority of that console’s lineup. What I find a little baffling is that despite its brevity—my playthrough lasted less than an hour— Awesome Pea has a three-stage demo on the eShop, and that demo will tell you everything you need to know. Awesome Pea seems to go all in on nostalgia and loses its shirt in the process. If you absolutely must, go ahead and try the demo, but there are much better budget titles for your time and money.

    Half good and half bad, those are the words I'd like to describe this game with.
    It isn't awful or amazing and I wish that wasn't true as the visuals are gameboy-ish with the greenish tint to everything & it looks really good like that.
    I enjoyed it but it just was too much like any other platformer but I'd recommend it with the current price.
    In the end it is only another generic platformer without any remarkable features and gameplay.

The tutorial felt great, but then the game itself felt like the spam platformers that litter Steam where there are giant levels that feel cluttered with enemies, platforms and poor layout. There's so much on one screen. Expand
