Fun riff on Pac-Man, and always funny to see a movie you’d never expect to have a game adaptation. The premise sort of goes along with the movie, though I’m not sure why Colm has to determinedly collect his own fingers when he was making such a point cutting them off in the first place.
I can’t beat this to save my life though. Barely scraped to stage 5 a couple of times with one life left, and then was quickly defeated. The tag team duo of Padraic’s relentless pursuit and Siobhan actively working to cut me off made this too much of a challenge.
The hit boxes are also funky and at times I got caught where I definitely think I shouldn’t have. Guess I’m not pro enough to finish this game. Also a fair warning- this controls horribly on phone- you definitely need a keyboard for this game to really function.
A choice-based narrative title, As Dusk Falls stands out primarily for the fact it can be enjoyed in co-op with a group of friends. I played this with a buddy of mine and we had an excellent time going through each chapter and experiencing the story of these characters.
As Dusk Falls is primarily about a robbery hostage situation which quickly turns into a dramatic standoff. The tension is kept high throughout the campaign, but the story will spiral into unexpected directions. Some of the writing was a bit silly at times but it was very enjoyable making decisions, and the flow chart system shows that there really are a lot of different paths you can get encouraging replayability and adding weight to the decisions.
As Dusk Falls is told primarily through a series of stills, like watching a slideshow of concept art. Sometimes you'll get a bit of movement, but its pretty static overall. The style definitely takes some getting used to but after a while I found myself enjoying it.
This was ultimately one of the better narrative titles I've played and would recommend checking it out in co-op if you can.
I guess I was optimistically hoping for some sort of open-world adventure platformer out of this one but that's not what Happy Feet has to offer. This movie tie-in title is essentially comprised of three gameplay variants that repeat over and over and make up the entire experience.
You'll be sliding down slopes at high speeds, swimming through rings or away from predators, and participating in a very easy rhythm minigame to represent the tap dancing of the story. None of it really gave me any challenge and hardly changes throughout the several hours that make up the campaign. I got somewhere around 60% through the title before I lost interest. The production value isn't too bad here with some decent licensed tracks for the tap dancing parts and the voice acting cast from the movie reprising their roles. I just expected something more substantial on the gameplay front.
