·きのこの森の少女 – Beware of the woodland fiery shrimp!

There is not much to say about this title, given that I’ve already made a fantastic video that covers all its essential bits in terms of gameplay, sound, graphics, plot, character design and whatnot. In addition,there is also a dedicated description in the video that provides further insight regarding the high quality of the product!

I’m just really sad that such a great video game wasn’t received well during its initial release… True, not everyone can read Japanese or be a fan of the blue – colored main menu… But if only people waited for that crucial [1.2] version update, they would have been completely overwhelmed by the new ENGLISH interface, along with the stylized, mushroom- brown background.- [/As seen in the video/]/ Of course, let us not forget about the Girl’s unique spin move, which gives her the sort of personality that you see rarely in characters from video games nowadays!… – Another new addition that can only be seen in version 1.2!

Alas, the judgement of humanity tends to be rushed, usually missing on the most important of details – Those of pure heart become prisoners, while the real culprits still walk among us, still tormenting us with the impossible art of star- riding…

Celeste [PICO-8] One afternoon! Before work! Lunch!

celeste

“Celeste” is a game for the fantasy league machine [Boku no PICO-8]. It’s made by Matt Thorson and friends. You might remember OR know Matt as a person who also made lots of other good games through the years, mainly platformers, mainly games that I still haven’t finished after all this time! Bad pick for a dedicated video game volume? YOU JUST WAIT, YyyyOUUUUUU…

“Celeste” is your typical Matt-like platformer video game, where the first few levels will more or less introduce you to what tools and gimmicks have been rehashed from the author’s previous works. Like air dashing, but now with a cute, mountain- climbing , red-heady girl. Or like, bumpers, which is a dumb substitute for saying trampolines. Also strawberry picking, which was obviously stolen from “Age of Empires II”, even though the bushes there are of berry very nature. Am I being mean here? Should I really spurt out “rehash”, when the guy’s clearly stuck on his own personal formula for success? THAT’S RIGHT!

You just need one afternoon to clear the game and you’ll be satisfied with the results!

Celeste PICO-8 DONE!

Indeed, this game does not disappoint when it comes to level design, cuz hey it’s Matt-matt. Not only that, but this is just the salad! The main course is ’bout to come as a-sequel-something, which I would love to try out at some point once it has been released. It looked pretty great, I liked it, people liked it , so we are good. As long as it doesn’t have its own ladder of poor speedrunners, too good to afford a decent haircut. PLEASE!

That being said, this game is a solid 7.7 out of 10. Hooray for free strawberries!
