VIDEO GAME REVIEW: FTN review Super Epic

December 5th, 2019 by Geralt of Australia Comments

Numskull Games have done something different here with putting a new spin on Indie games and bringing something interesting to the table.

It’s 2048 and after a series of hostile takeovers, only one video game company is left.

Regnantcorp uses mind control algorithms disguised as entertainment through free-to-play games; society has become addicted to these games that have been tailored to alter behavior, suck money and prevent communication.

As a raccoon riding your llama (yes, really), you set out to take down the corporate pigs (literally, I mean, they’re actual pigs) in a 2D side-scrolling platform adventure.

One of the main points that makes this different to any other Indie game I’ve ever played is the cross-play section combining a game about taking down free-to-play games, with free-to-play mobile games. Throughout the game you’ll find QR codes which, when scanned with your phone, will take you to a website accessible through your mobile browser with free-to-play games and by completing these games you’ll either get access to codes which will allow you to progress into locked rooms (the game can be completed without them, so never fear) and some which will allow you to get a code to use the in game ATM to get extra cash.

The extra cash from these games can be spent on various upgrades for your health, magic and stamina, as well as buying and upgrading a multitude of weapons used to take down the corporate pigs.

You’ll start off with three different weapons to do different things and with three attacking buttons to use you’ll have a combo button, an uppercut button and a smash attack button. As well as that, you’re also able to unlock other various skills such as gliding on your llama and eventually getting throwing weapons.

After taking damage you’re able to restore your life by destroying security cameras as well as taking a little stop in the bathroom, which also double as your checkpoints and save points throughout the game.

This game combines seamlessly fluid game-play with a brilliant soundtrack and that is just so hard to beat in these style of games. With a story mode and an additional play through mode with procedurally generated maps you get tons of extra gameplay that will always keep it fresh and new.

Releasing on December 12th across PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Stream, this is one game that you won’t want to miss out on and I’m privileged to get to play it early and give you all the juicy details.

So get ready to have some Super Epic fun with this one-of-a-kind game.
