General Information

Available on:PCFeb 27, 2020
Nintendo SwitchMay 21, 2020

Developer: Yeo

Publisher: Circle Entertainment

Genre: Action

As a professional killer you'll live through November 1976 alternating non-stop shoot'em up action with a downtempo mundane life. You're fast and lucky enough so you don't plan your actions too far. You kill with one shot and you never miss. When you're run out of ammo you just throw a gun away. You can disarm any enemy and use any weapon. And when it's time to get out you just use a vehicle nearby. You have an apartment in the historical center of the city. When you want to eat you go to a cafe, and you can visit a museum or a cinema when you're looking for entertainment. And you have a lover when you need a woman. And there's this question which is longing for an answer.

Arrest of a stone Buddha was way too repetitive for me. I didn't get into the story, and the gameplay was overall frustrating. One thing I did enjoy was the retro graphics and the ambient soundtrack. If you want to checkout Arrest of a stone Buddha, I recommend waiting on a sale.

The best way to describe Arrest of a stone Buddha is to think of it as a dream in video game form, and I mean the kind you wake up from and wonder: “What the hell was that?” The lack of control, direction, and agency that one experiences while dreaming are the closest approximation I can come up with. However, there is some wisdom to be gleaned from the hundreds of bodies this professional killer leaves lying in his wake.

It’s an unrelentingly bitter game, one which has the power to incite a strong reaction in anyone who plays it. Just as much as I liked it, I’m sure there are others out there who will come to hate it with a passion.

Yeo's new game gets frustrating to early, so it's quite difficult to enjoy it despite its great art house aesthetics.
