Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion
Top Critic Average
Due to the short running time the game never satisfactorily unpacks its story, mechanics, puzzles, or gameplay systems. This is one turnip harvested just a little too soon.
You know what? I was pleasantly surprised by Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion. It’s by no means a ground-breaking release and doesn’t do anything special, but it delivered a lot more than I expected. The adventure itself is fun, the world is pretty to look at, and the writing is clever and funny. Who would have though tax evasion could make for a fun gaming experience? Not me.
Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion is ripe to be picked and placed in your library.
Lasting a few fun hours, Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion is a simple but effective Zelda-like adventure in a colourful veggie-filled dystopia. However, this salad dodger’s gameplay is derivative of dozens of other better games, and it doesn’t really do anything to explore its novel concept.
Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion will likely attract an audience thanks to its cute graphical style and bizarre yet humorous premise. It does feel like it could have done with a little more content and the meme humour is likely to be hit or miss for some people. But if you’re looking for something short and sweet this is a good title to pass the time with before your next intensive gaming project. Just don’t expect it to teach you anything about Taxes.
Looking at the whole, Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion scores many points for its creativity, which oozes humor with its characters, situations and dialogues. These circumstances, coupled with beautiful visuals and interesting challenges, generate an extremely kind journey, which enchants even with the very short expiration date. So, evading taxes and tearing up declarations are activities so fun that they make me recommend them.

Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion is a very fun metroidvania for all players, with a curious story that will last us 3 hours if we are very complete, which perfectly mixes various musical styles with a sensational Pixel-Art aspect.

I want to like this game more than I did, and while I enjoyed Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion well enough, the experience is over far too soon. It would seem that Turnip Boy got off light this time. Must have been for time served or good behavior.
Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion is a super cute and pun filled game starring an adorable Turnip who is in financial trouble and obsessed with ripping any paper he can get his hands on. Will he ever pay off his debt?
As is sometimes the case with comedy films, the premise and promotional material for Turnip Boy ends up being funnier than the end product. This brief and mostly shallow adventure is rarely amusing, but it at least looks charming in the process.
