Adventures of Chris Reviews
Adventures of Chris is a platformer with smooth controls but unforgiving gameplay that will leave you more frustrated than having fun.
Overall, Adventures of Chris is a perfectly pleasant, charming and nostalgic trip for anyone who grew up in the 1990s.
Adventures of Chris doesn't break new ground in the 2D platformer genre. Still, it provides genuine humour, personality and variety in bucketloads, all while sending a few loving glances to the 16-bit era of videogames.
However, for players who persevere beyond those opening levels, there are some genuinely clever and fun platforming elements to be discovered, adapting and evolving the 16 bit template. It's just a shame that the first part of the game is so slavish to the formula. There's fun to be had here, just at the expense of the legacy it evokes.
Adventures of Chris is a fun and challenging platform title. Its crazy characters and childish plot will amuse you throughout. Furthermore, the challenging gameplay and interesting level design will hold your attention from beginning to end.
A good heart and strong sense of design can’t elevate Adventures of Chris out of its lacklustre platforming and mixed messaging on body issues.
Have fun taking out giant spiders, bats, frogs, and other oversized creatures on your way to becoming the hero today.
