What I like, is when free to play video games are of such high quality, that they make others, pay to game titles, look like complete garbage soup. There are lots of good, free games out there! “Toadette Strikes Back” is a title made by the same person who made “Psycho Waluigi” – Another very good, free to play game, that I covered in the past!
Nintendo’s cutie Toadette, gets her own fan- made game and it’s quite the feast for fans of the platforming genre! The author, Thunder Dragon, really knows how to bring us a quality product that managed to capture the style of magic of NIntendo, if not, with even more flavor to the recipe.
This is a pretty pretty game! The graphics are really nice and the controls are well done. Where it stands as your typical run and jump game, there is a lot more on the table, what with many gimmicks from classic Mario games enhancing the experience even further. You got the hammer weapon, the fire flower, the Yoshi, the Homing Pigeon, the Armageddon! Over 100 classic weapons, some of which are not even in the game!
The level design is really good! In addition, there are collectable medals in each level, that will provoke your exploration desires for sure! Levels are not too long or short, but just of the right length. This makes exploring and overall progress fly by,which keeps the player interested. Save feature is also available if you need to throw out the trash or lie down for a bit and rethink your recent life choices.
Regarding difficulty, this game is pretty generous. For veterans, “Hard” is more or less of essence for a good time. As for the whole difficulty progress scaling, it’s done well enough! You are bound to have some trouble towards the end, but nothing too special to talk about over the phone with your mother. The bosses are pretty neat and challenging! Aiming for full completion of the game is kind of a must, if one wishes to experience all the great extra levels and the secret boss fight at the end! Level variety is pretty good! Just like in “Psycho Waluigi”, each one always adds something new and interesting to the gameplay experience!
If you are a fan of “Super Mario Bros 2 Doki Doki Popcorn Aquila”, this game is like a reimagination – sequel. Some levels from SMB2 do make an appearance, with some tweaks and changes here and there. There’s more to this, but I’ll leave it there! The music is great and the plot is pretty fancy and charming, the comfy edition.
It may seem that I do not say much about this game. Truth to be told, this title is pretty straightforward and there isn’t anything to complain about, really. I did find some glitches though…
… in the glitch level. THANK YOU! You were a great audience tonight! 9.8 out of 10 Toadette!!!
