The Luck of A Gamer!
Developed by Playful Studios and published by PQube Games, New Super Lucky's Tale is a 3D platformer at its core with lighthearted and fun gameplay that gamers are sure to enjoy, but is it worth the cost of admission? We think so and here's why:
The gameplay in New Super Lucky's Tale is standard 3D Platforming at its very core and doesn't do a whole lot to reinvent the genre, which isn't at all a bad thing as its mechanics are refined and work incredibly well. The game also blends many other genres in the game's various courses including 2D-platforming, a Dance Dance Revolution style level, and much more which all come together brilliantly well and make the experience fun from start to finish! The bosses are also equally enjoyable and all have different mechanics separating them from each previous battle which makes each battle refreshingly enjoyable!
The story of course is lighthearted and isn't important, but still oozes with charm and is fun to watch unfold. Other unique features include massive hub worlds with npc's and even a shop to deck out your character and make him represent who you truly are or just to make the most adorable anamorphic fox ever, it's your choice! The Hauntington Hub even adds a carnival theme with unique elements that really add to the game, but you'll have to reach that point in the game to learn what we mean by that!
The game is pretty easy there's no getting around that fact, yet despite this we never grew bored of the game in the nearly 20 hours it took us to beat the game. This was in no small part due to the unique genre-melding courses in the game, which clearly shows that the developer knows how to keep players entertained through top-notch game design! The controls in the game are easy to learn and even the camera is quite intuitive and never gave us any issues, which is rare to see in a 3D platformer.
The audio-visual presentation in New Super Lucky's Tale is top-notch between gorgeous world design, detailed and cutesy characters that simply ooze with charm, and an excellent art-direction. The soundtrack is also catchy and highly memorable as well. Overall the game is incredible in nearly every aspect!
Bottom-Line: With excellent gameplay, a fun story, superb controls, and a fantastic audio-visual presentation, New Super Lucky's Tale is a top-tier 3D platformer that's worthy of every fan of the genre, the only downside being that the game is a bit on the short side. Overall, however we give the game a nearly perfect level of recommendation!
Score: ★★★★★★★★★¾ 9.75/10
