This Kickstarter-funded game is not for everyone!
It is a very unique and creative game from the Sega Megadrive in the early 90s, where you play four aliens from the planet Funkotron that have crash-landed on earth. To get home, they have to find the missing parts of their spaceship, spread over the planet...
To find the missing parts, you have to survive the strange inhabitants of the planet that often pose a lethal danger to you. Many are not evil, but just hurt you because of their ruthlessness or clumsyness, others are evil and actively try to kill you. Most are funny.
The game is for ppl who loved the original, the game is for ppl with a bizzare humor. It is an action-adventure and a roguelite. The missing parts of your spaceship and the other items are always in random locations.
How can you describe the gameplay? You run around with your character, trying to find the missing parts. The focus lies clearly NOT on combat. Avoid your enemies to succeed. The world you encounter is absolutely zany, weird, odd, strange... and fun! There are minigames, like a Guitar Hero sequence or runner sequences.
Gameplay is very similar to the old classic - but modernized in the right parts!
It plays perfect in 4-player local split-screen (large screen recommended), but you can also connect to strangers online at any time of the game - or play local AND online.
X-Box One gamepads are supported. Conclusion:
A decent remake of a cult classic. Highly recommended for local 4 player sessions!
