Gelly Break Reviews
Gelly Break isn't a perfect platformer/isometric shooter hybrid, but it showcases such creative aplomb it manages to make itself stand out among a vast number of couch-play titles already available on Nintendo Switch. While enjoyable in single-player, this really is a game best experienced locally with a friend – where something as simple as traversing a platform becomes an exercise in mutual harmony or a tragedy of teamwork.
With so many cooperative games on the market, Gelly Break is an easily forgettable and often frustrating experience but it does feature enough unique gameplay mechanics and clever stage designs to make mastering its campaign a rewarding endeavour.
The best moments of the game were spent fighting unique adversaries that lacked character. The complete absence of lore makes the game easily forgettable. Deep in the bones of Gelly Break there are potentially strong ideas, but the failure to capitalize on them left me just wanting to go back to playing Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.
