    Mighty Goose is an exciting run n gun, it has smooth art, a beautiful score, lots of references and lots of action. Tailored to play again and again without realizing it.

    Slick 2d-action in the likes of Metal Slug. Plenty of explosions with cool boss fights and loads of entertaining upgrades.

    While I do think it would have benefitted from minor improvements and wish it had some additional modes to keep me playing, it’s still a ton of fun. This is the perfect start to the Summer gaming season. Now I’ll just wait with bated breath for Blastmode to announce they’re working on an even bigger sequel.

    Mighty Goose won't push players to their limit the way Blazing Chrome does, but it is satisfying to play, thanks to all the mayhem and destruction to be had. The impressive sprite art and animation go a long way at elevating the experience from being just another run and gun action title. There aren't many like this that have so much pandemonium on screen. The harder, unlockable mode definitely seems like it would have been the standard difficulty if this had come out in the era that inspired it, and it feels like the intended way to play. For some reason, causing havoc as a goose is one of those things that makes a lot of sense in a video game.

    Mighty Goose is a solid run & gun that reminds us of games like Contra and Metal Slug. It probably won’t be a classic like those, but it is a very enjoyable game.

    Mighty Goose may only keep your attention for an evening or two, but it’s a honking good time.

    The pixel art, soundtrack, and performance are all solid, and the menus and base where you choose your loadout are presented well. There’s also something funny about Goose’s random honks and certain moments when the action slows down and a giant goose pops up in the corner of the screen. If you absolutely need more Metal Slug in your life, then I would say wing it, but otherwise maybe let sleeping geese lie.

Excellent pixel art, fun chaotic gameplay and juicy effects make you feel all the more powerful. Play sessions are bite-size enough to pick up the game during small 15 minute work breaks. Expand
