WARNING Don't get it wrong. It's not a simple and nice casual game for everyone. You will be eaten, burned, crushed, digested, shocked, slapped, poisoned or just fall down. Many times. Escape Doodland is an arcade platformer with intense and demanding gameplay in a crazy 2.5D doodle world. RUN FOR YOUR LIFE! Death and destruction came into Doodland. This happy and joyful land is going to change. Forever. There are only two options: run as fast as you can or die. WORLD Doodland is a grotesque world created on a piece of paper. It is invaded by Omnomus, a cruel monster that loves taste of inhabitants of this land. Each part of the world is different, has unique atmosphere. It is also full of demanding obstacles and you will have to run, jump, swim and fly to overcome them. DOODLERS Doodlers are peaceful and brave creatures living in Doodland, choose which one you will help to escape. There are no two same Doodlers. Each of them looks different and sounds different, but every one of them has one common feature - a digestive problems. BOOSTERS Omnomus has no mercy. If he will reach you he will eat you without blinking an eye. Fortunately Doodlers can use their gastric problems against him. Just find a match, light your fart and feel the boost. And if this won't help, just release stinky gases in his face to stun him. This is your last resort.

New studio flukyMachine's 2D runner-style platformer is every bored student's notebook come to life, proudly embracing its own eccentricities in the visuals department. But turn the page and one will find that the gameplay lacks the same luster, living in the shadows of its influences. While it does sport more-than-serviceable gameplay, Escape Doodland is a game worth playing for its charm and simplicity, not for its depth of mechanics or level design prowess.

Escape Doodland could use some more content, but it's a really neat, little game. As long as I'm not playing level seven.

If running, jumping, and farting around while a huge monster chases you sounds like fun then you'll likely enjoy this off-the-wall indie.

While it likely won’t win any awards Escape Doodland seems to accomplish what it set out to do, provide a somewhat challenging runner that includes some silliness and a lot of weird characters and settings. There are some sections and situations where the hitboxes of your character and elements on the screen can be a bit too large, which is annoying, but for the most part success is all on you getting your execution down and letting your muscle memory get you through tough sections with a little repetition. Since there aren’t too many titles like it on Switch perhaps it’ll satisfy your need for precision jumping, with a bit of weirdness thrown in.
