The Adventure Pals is a beautifully animated 2D action platformer inspired by Adventure Time, Banjo Kazooie, Zelda 2 and Castle Crashers, in which you control a young boy and his pet giraffe as they go on an action packed adventure to stop your mama and papa from being turned into hot dogs by the evil Mr B.
As soon as you load up The Adventure Pals you’re greeted with high quality animation and a tongue-in-cheek sense of humor that’s fondly reminiscent of Adventure Time. After learning the ropes from your papa, and opening your awesome birthday present, your papa is promptly kidnapped by the evil Mr B, who plans on turning all the old people in the world into hot dogs. It’s up to you and your new pet giraffe to hunt down Mr B and save the day, meeting lots of oddball characters on the way.
To stop Mr B’s nefarious plan you and your backpack giraffe must traverse beautifully designed platforming levels, battling enemies, earning XP, levelling up your skills and collecting cash on the way. Each level has multiple routes that reward exploration, as they’re packed with hidden loot, such as treasure chests and giant cupcakes. The combat could do with a little refinement, but the platforming feels very responsive, and makes navigating your way through the vibrant world of The Adventure Pals a joy.
We can’t wait to see more of The Adventure Pals as it’s shaping up very nicely – an action platforming adventure with great gameplay, interesting characters, high quality animation and a great sense of humor. A cheerful, colorful and charming platforming adventure well worth checking out.
