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.
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.
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.
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...
Summary: The Adventures of Shuggy, by Valcom, is a hateful game full of hatefully executed ideas and mechanics. They’re not bad, just hateful; it’s as if the people who worked on this game were trying to visualize what algebra would look like if you replaced numbers with a childishly shaped bat-vampire boy...
Smudged Cat‘s Spooky Platformer Offers Plenty Of Challenging Twists
20 June 2011
Conclusion: Concept: Throw new ideas at the platformer genre and see what sticks
Graphics: The cute haunted house vibe stands out in the genre
Sound: The music doesn’t offend, but it’s not memorable either
Playability: Jumps feel floaty at first, but you eventually get used to the range and momentum...
Excerpt: When Shuggy inherits his grandfather’s castle, he finds it infested with the likes of ghosts, bees, and flying fish. Jump between 2D platforms and collect all the gems in a given room, and you’re on your way to unlocking over a hundred haunted parlors.
Pros: + A cute, attractive platfomer with more than 100 levels of invention and variety., + Offline co-op challenges reward teamwork and communication.
Cons: - Demands considerable patience; weak online-multiplayer contests; some enemies are little more than specks., ? Why is co-op play offline-only?
