The Beggar's Ride
Publisher: Bad Seed
All in all, A Beggar’s Ride is a short, simple, and ultimately quite enjoyable puzzle platformer. If you’ve got six bucks to spare, then the charming visuals, impressively developed mixture of atmosphere and story, and solid puzzles will make the game worth a purchase.
The Beggar's Ride is a cool little game to play if you just fancy a few hours of escapism. The shortcomings lay in the execution of some of its puzzles, within the slow pace of the protagonist and its basic platforming aspect. Despite these niggles, it is a solid and clever game with colourful graphics, a charming story and pleasantly challenging game play which will appeal to both experienced and casual gamers. The coins are a good option for anyone looking to play longer, and the narration is a smart touch. Definitely one to enjoy on a rainy afternoon.
There is no voice acting, but everything you need to know is in a few lines of text in the background. The game may be very short, but it’s a very fun experience. I loved writing my The Beggar’s Ride review since the game is a solid platformer that the whole family will enjoy. Other than some times when the loading felt a bit on the slow side, I have no complaints about the game.
