While it had its disconnections from plot, Pankapu is definitely a game I want to invest more into for future episodes. It’s fun and continuously challenging, with new puzzles and obstacles to overcome with each level, making the player think on their feet, and sometimes in the air! The characters are solid and visually appealing and help move the story along from chapter to chapter.
Pankapu certainly has a lot to offer on PlayStation 4, with a great looking presentation, fun gameplay mechanics and plenty of action. I'm always happy when a game that was funded on Kickstarter manages to release, and I'm even happier when a game funded on Kickstarter is actually good. I had fun with Pankapu and look forward to the next release from Too Kind Studios and Plug In Digital.
By in large, Pankapu’s first episode shows a lot of promise. Its story and world are genuinely charming, and platforming through stages with tight controls is an utter joy.
