Excerpt: When was the last time you laughed on a regular basis while playing a video game? Humor isn’t that uncommon in gaming, but it’s rare to find a title that uses it as the primary focus in a similar fashion as films.
Conclusion: As an experience, I’d definitely recommend Jazzpunk. It still fits in the, “Wandering Around Game” style, however its comedic sensibilities are great and its treatment of other video game styles are a love letter to gaming in the most fun, madcap way that Necrophone Games could have thought of.
Conclusion: On some level, though, complaining about a lack of substance in a game like this is like criticizing Mad Magazine for its dearth of biting social critique. All ye looking for narrative or mechanical depth, abandon all hope, as this is a game of quick, cheap, dumb laughs.
Excerpt: Stop me if you've heard this one - why did the Frog cross the road? Well, if you believe Jazzpunk , it's because he's stoned and looking for WiFi. I don't have to tell you that Jazzpunk is weird. One look at the game, published by Adult Swim is likely to tell the tale without any words.
Conclusion: That lack of connective tissue does mean that Jazzpunk is less memorable a journey than you might think, though. After the last scene played out, I struggled to find something to take away from the computer with me.
Excerpt: I remember growing up and being a fan of the quirky Canadian comedy skit show The Kids In The Hall . Once I brought a friend over all excited to show them what I felt was comedy gold, with the expectation that it would rock their world.
Excerpt: I could – and a large part of me is telling me I should – spend the next 800 words or so telling you that Jazzpunk is irrelevantly brilliant in the same vein as The Stanley Parable or Conker’s Bad Fur Day .
Excerpt: Jazzpunk is the newest release from Adult Swim Games made available on the Steam platform. The new game is difficult to describe but takes players to a world full of interesting mini-games and is played through the first-person perspective.
Summary: As soon as Jazzpunks intro loaded up I knew this game was a winner. Colourful, stylish and striking. Think Catch Me If You Can’s intro but fast paced and bursting with colour and mad drum music.
