Mega Coin Squad
Top Critic Average
Mega Coin Squad is quite a delightful competitive local multiplayer game that's beautifully presented and features simple yet thrilling gameplay.
The controls are sometimes irksome and there's no online multiplayer, but these are just minor issues in a rather delicious slice of retro gaming action
Mega Coin Squad is a superbly entertaining title. Not everyone will be down with the speedrunning single-player style which sees you completing the admittedly short game multiple times with different characters, but there's fun to be had even for those that oppose the style the most. With multiple players, the game really shines and if you're looking for some fun and competitive action with your friends locally, this is right on the money.
Mega Coin Squad is a fast-paced coin collecting platformer with fun gameplay and visually pleasing retro style. Though its single-player gets repetitive fast, gamers looking for a fun and chaotic experience with friends will love the multiplayer.
Mega Coin Squad is a fun, frantic and wholly unique action platformer with all sorts of crazy ideas and mechanics built around a clear and engaging objective of collecting and banking as many coins as possible. It dives right into the basic primal gamer instinct of collecting shiny golden coins, and throws in countless obstacles and useful tools to make things interesting.
Mega Coin Squad provides a challenging and engaging experience for platformer fans, but a short campaign and lack of online play bring the experience down a bit.
While Mega Coin Squad could've gone the extra mile with more single player oomph and online play, what's here is more than serviceable for those looking for a great time with some friends – or collecting coins on their own. The gameplay is original and a lot of fun, and the presentation is right up the alley of Genesis/SNES owners, right down to the cute animations. This is one title worth cashing in on.
Good news is that Big Pixel Studios isn't done with the development of this title and its developers have already begun asking for opinions on new characters on the Steam forums. If they reconsider the multiplayer possibilities, this game can become a lot more than what it already is.
Mega Coin Squad's decent in multiplayer, but it's over all too quickly when playing alone. Some cumbersome mechanics and a teensy runtime rain on this game's parade, and when you take into account its $14.99 price tag, you may need a coin squad of your own to justify spending so much on it. Still, there is fun to be had with friends here, so it's worth a look if you've already picked the likes of Towerfall Ascension and Nidhogg clean.
If you're looking for fun game to play with others, this might provide it in small doses. Yet in a game that wants players to save every coin, you might want to do that before deciding if you want to spend yours.
