Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion is a cute little game that's over way too quickly. While this means that a lot of its questions aren't answered and its mechanics are underutilized, what's here is still a very enjoyable ride with an adorable protagonist (that may need a calculator or two).

All in all, it’s a fun little diversion where you can pay off your debts while beating up some vegetarians along the way.

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.

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 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.

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.

Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion is a fleeting but delicious Zelda-inspired romp.

If you can call being a menace to society a harmless and casual endeavor, Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion will easily bring many smiles to your face. Truly a masterpiece that doesn’t require much thinking to enjoy, all you have to do is pick up your controller and avoid all adult responsibilities by playing as a turnip who is avoiding all adult responsibilities. With the game being released so close to the end of tax season, I would like to think Turnip Boy was intentionally released in April as a joke or perhaps a form of escapism. At the same time, it’s probably also a great reminder to all of us to file our taxes by the end of this month.

Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion is a delight. Its gameplay is not quite on the same level as some of the more top tier examples of the top-down ARPG genre, but it boasts an outstanding tone and utterly ridiculous characters that drive the narrative beautifully. If you’re after a breezy, cheerful palate cleanser, then look no further; this is a great way to get more veggies into your gaming diet.
