Critic Reviews for Panic Porcupine
Panic Porcupine is very much as you could expect as a homage to Sonic the Hedgehog, though it certainly stands alone with a much higher level of difficulty torn straight out of the guts of Super Meat Boy. While more than passable, it has a few core issues in a game like this, one being input lag. Still, despite the problems I found, I can genuinely imagine this being an enjoyable title for fans of the genre.
Panic Porcupine is a fast-paced Sonic and Meat Boy mashup/clone with a fun, vintage feel. Are you looking for a relaxing game? You've come to the wrong place; Panic Porcupine is hard. After a while, it can feel a little repetitive too. However, it's at least easy to pick up, feeling familiar and nostalgic. I recommend it to anyone looking for a challenge.
Panic Porcupine has tight controls, an accessible difficulty system, and fun level design. But it often feels repetitive, and its camera works against the player instead of the other way around. It could've been something special if it wasn't for all that negative stuff.
Even if some of its levels felt poorly designed, I ended up enjoying Panic Porcupine quite a lot. From its silly premise (never thought I’d give a crap about this game’s plot, but here we are), sublime presentation, and somewhat fair initial difficulty curve, the game did a great job at mixing the gameplay styles from both Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Meat Boy in a cohesive and enjoyable way. There’s little else that needs to be said about it: if you’re into either franchises, Panic Porcupine is a no-brainer.
