Independent developer Massive Monster and Armor Games Studio have released a co-op platformer today that is as silly as it is creative: The Adventure Pals. This game will have several crazy characters to keep players on their toes.
The Adventure Pals has the player hop on the back of their giraffe, Sparkles, as they aim to rescue their pa from being turned into a hot dog. This game can be played alone or with drop-in/drop-out co-op across five worlds featuring 105 levels. These levels can feature simple platforming, or range from silly adventures such as helping a whale regain confidence, take sides in a battle between toast and dinosaur, and see the outcome of a pirate election.
Inspired by classic platformers and cartoons alike, The Adventure Pals combines hilarious characters with rip-roaring platforming and combat. Level up to learn special abilities, throw bombs and whack things with your sword. Find cupcakes to unlock costumes and fill your scrap book up with secret stickers. The game is a mixture of lovingly handcrafted platformer levels, combat focused arenas and RPG-like locations with townsfolk who provide quests, items and other goodies for you to buy to aid you on your journey. Just like your favorite peanut butter and jelly sandwich, The Adventure pals is both nutty and sweet,with perhaps just a little crunch. It is lighthearted, goofy fun no matter what your age.
The Adventure Pals is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and GOG for $14.99. For more information, visit the official website.
