Starlit Adventures Golden Stars
Developer: Rockhead Studios
Genres: Arcade, Puzzle
As a solo game, I could take it or leave it. But when played cooperatively, Starlit Adventures Golden Stars checks a ton of boxes to be a highly entertaining title. With a favorable amount of content, this charming release should appeal to anyone longing for a more in-depth arcade-style experience. Whether you're a younger kid, a seasoned completionist, or somewhere in between, don't overlook Starlit Adventures Golden Stars.
Starlit Adventures: Golden Stars is just as addictive as the Free-to-Play version, only much easier and less stressful. Paying a premium price grants you access to all of the suits, including the three golden ones, and all premium currency has been removed, making the game much more accessible for people of all ages and skill levels as you no longer have to worry about unlocking things and paying to continue. I personally feel the lack of progression in this regard is a bad thing, but it means you’ll rarely get stuck or hit a level progression block. If you want a challenge, I’d recommend the Free-to-Play version, but if you just want casual fun with no restrictions, this is the version for you.
Starlit Adventures Golden Stars is a great game for the whole family. It’s a casual adventure with very little stress and some guaranteed laughs. The addition of co-op for up to 4 players is most welcome and the enormous amount of content on offer easily justifies the game’s jump to consoles. Plus, it’s not often that you play a game where you ride a giant mole who kills enemies by farting fireballs at them (provided you’re wearing the right suit). I think that in itself sells me on this charming title… but that’s just me.
