The Adventure Pals
Top Critic Average
A fun and funny 2D platformer whose infectious sense of humour comes through clearly in the visuals, the script, and the gameplay.
There are several issues marring The Adventure Pals that prevent it receiving my whole-hearted recommendation. Yet, despite these problems, I very much enjoyed my time in its zany embrace. Its quirky characters, breezy story and colourful game world proved to be enchanting, while its solid platforming and combat mechanics, in conjunction with local co-op play, kept me on my couch till the end of the story. If you have a pal to go adventuring with, then The Adventure Pals is well worth a look.
Hilarious, colorful and full of challenges, The Adventure Pals is a game full of challenges and lovely characters with several RPG mechanics for all players. Good platforming experience.

Running and jumping from left to right is difficult to judge, but while wearing the colours of another The Adventure Pals delivers on its central concept in a way it's inspiration never could.
While levels may feel stale later on and combat could be better, The Adventure Pals is still a solid platformer with tight controls and an incredibly imaginative and humorous world that is more than worth checking out for its price.
For the most part, The Adventure Pals is an absolute joy to play.
The Adventure Pals may look like a thousand other games just like it, but it stands out among the crowd. It is fun, whimsical, and just a joy to play solo or with a friend. For those that enjoy the genre it is a must own. Add that to the fact that it is available on absolutely everything and there is no reason to let this game pass by.
If you happen to be an Adventure Time super fan that has been dying for a good video game that matches the license, this is the closest you'll get for a while. If you can turn off your brain and enjoy the cartoon graphics and simple gameplay, this is a couple of well-spent hours. But if you have a brain that can't help but dissect the world in front of you, this game might trouble you. The Adventure Pals is nearly a success but ultimately lacks the organic comedy it needed to truly feel magical.
Featuring vibrant visuals, a giant breakfast buccaneer, and a truly bizarre story, this title is definitely one that will strike a chord
This doesn't mean that all is lost for lone adventurers, however. With a debt being owed to Castle Crashers and Adventure Time in terms of both humor and visual style, The Adventure Pals has enough going on to keep you interested during the slightly more repetitive sections of play. Had it packed more of a challenge – even if it was optional – The Adventure Pals would be running close to the front of the indie platforming pack. Though the final product doesn't quite get there, it's still plenty enjoyable, especially in co-op.
