General Information

Available on:PCMay 6, 2014

Developer: Whole Hog Games

Genres: Puzzle, Adventure

Deep underground lies a reminder of Boarkind’s darkest hours. All it takes is one little boar to dig it back up. Harkening back to the NES era, Full Bore is an open-world puzzle game that leaves you to your own devices. With curiosity as your only guide, you will figure out how the blocks around you behave, delve deeper into a strange underground, and eventually piece together the story of a world transfigured. Full Bore debuts a unique lighting engine that creates rich, atmospheric environments out of its old-school pixel art. Combined with our original bluesy soundtrack, you will soon find yourself immersed in Full Bore's mines, temples, scrapyards, lava tubes, inexplicable lakes and/or mysterious laboratories. With over 150 areas, no single intended path and secrets everywhere, Full Bore gives you a world in which you can always find something new (until you find everything)

Full Bore's open world of puzzles is fun to explore, though it doesn't always offer incentive to solve everything.

Full Bore is deeper and smarter than its simple looks belie

Full Bore is an enjoyable game if you don't mind puzzles that range from simple to difficult within a few minutes of each other. While it's nice to play in short bursts thanks to the auto-save system, it would have been nice if the puzzles in the main areas were a bit more challenging, as that's where you'll spend most of your time if you don't go after every gem. Beyond that, though, Full Bore is a pretty solid game.

Collecting things for the sake of collecting them isn't a very compelling reason, and given there isn't much more to Full Bore than that, it ends up being a decent incomplete puzzle platformer and not much more.
