The Adventures of Shuggy
2 September 2013
Summary: This is my favorite kind of review to write: one in which I get to talk about a game that's worthy of your attention, but seemingly few have picked up on. The Adventures of Shuggy has had minimal presence online, which is unfortunate. It's not a bad game at all; in fact, it's a good one. If people knew it had elements similar to the time-based hijinks found in P.B. Winterbottom , maybe the game wouldn't be in this situation.
Excerpt: The Adventures of Shuggy is the most diverse puzzle game I have ever played on the Xbox 360. This downloadable game has the player using different skills in different levels. One level requires the player rotate the screen to get around. Another level requires multiple versions of the characters. Still another uses time travel. All of this may sound strange at first, but it really fits the flow of this game.
Review: The Adventures of Shuggy (Xbox Live Arcade)
12 November 2011
Summary: Cute graphics, fun platforming game that appeals to both the diehard gamer and the casual fan, a ton of levels, more variety than burlesque show, and it’s $10 on Xbox Live Arcade. I loved it, my wife loved it, and if you try the demo of the game on Live I’ll bet Shuggy will sink his little cartoon fangs into your heart as well.
Conclusion: The game takes quite some time to fully complete (achievement wise) and contains both singleplayer and cooperative game modes. ***NOTE: Servers on the game (for me at least) did not work so in order to fully complete it I had to use two controllers and play through the game with my friend. Luckily the co-op campaign is MUCH shorter than the singleplayer one.
Excerpt: Don’t you love reviews that inform readers that “if you like this kind of game, you’ll like this game?” Well I assure that I’m not taking that easy out in spite of what things might look like once you move beyond this sentence, but I feel that the audience will be divided on The Adventures of Shuggy and I’ll be doing a service for a good portion of those reading this review by letting them know that they should just cut their losses at this point and consider spending...
Summary: I will admit that when I first saw " The Adventures Of Shuggy " I was a little under whelmed by how it looked and at first thought that this was a game a would probably wait until a price drop until I picked it up, however when asked to review the game what I got was a very pleasant surprise indeed and one which proved to me that games should not be judged on first impressions alone.
Summary: When cooking, throwing in too many different ingredients can pollute the flavor of the pot and produce unpalatable rubbish. The same can be said about making video games, though every so often, this approach turns out something worth digging into. Bouncing around from one quasi-familiar gameplay idea to the next like an ADHD-addled youth, The Adventures of Shuggy throws a lot at you in rapid succession.
Pros: Tons of gameplay variety, Creative structure yields high replay, Cutesy comic-book presentation, Great boss battles
