What do you get when you have a cute robot with a poncho and the power to shift between the backgrounds and foregrounds of a 2D-ish game? PONCHO of course! Trickster is back to bring you another game review, so let’s jump right in, shall we?
I haven’t been playing this game for a while (for Let’s Plays purposes), but I played enough to know that this game is pretty good. The pixel artwork is awesome, the soundtracks I admit haven’t been playing attention but I’m pretty sure it’s good, and the concept of the whole gameplay is pretty creative especially for a platformer game. Have the ability to switch from background to foreground and vice versa makes this not only a platformer but a puzzle as well. The plot is vague to me, but I enjoy going around seeing what the other robots have to say about me, themselves and the world around them.
So I mentioned the good, let’s look at the bad. A lot of backtracking. That’s about it to be honest. There are a lot of collectables in this game that include gems, keys and robots that you have to revive in different worlds. In some places, you need a certain amount of one thing in order to proceed.
In short, it’s a great simple game that needs just a simple review. I give it 4 paws out of 5. I feel like there could be a feature or two added to make this game better, but in the end, you’ll enjoy this game as it is. Although, I’d rather wait for Poncho to be available on sale on Steam (Also on PS4). I’m not so sure if it’s worth $15. Expect to see a Trickster Plays It video of Poncho either this Thursday or next Tuesday. Until the next time, Let’s Make Magic!
