Jul 15, 2019Break The Game’s simplistic platforming and shooting mechanics are unremarkable and a little half-baked in isolation. But entertaining writing and a hare-brained sense of humour make it worth booting up and breaking out of again. Channelling ideas from some of the indie greats and adding a dash of its own creativity and playfulness, Break The Game is an enjoyable adventure through the googly eyes of an AI.

The storyBreak The Game is a 2-D puzzle-platformer, with shooter elements. Overall the game is about 2-4 hours long, depending on play style. The story is long, diluted, and dull, leaving much to be desired. The platforming and physics engine are well crafted and give reasoning to continue playing, but the story and combat leave me feeling disappointed. Combat in this game varies from easy enough to let a four year old play it, to leaving me (an experienced player) struggling and dying repeatedly. The humor ranges from fart jokes to never ending dialogues riding off of one joke for so agonizingly long, I ended up pulling out my phone and playing something else. The story could have been excellent, if they had written something original and used less "Shock Value." They have multiple moments in the story where they cuss seemingly at random, breaking the bright and glowing vibe they tried to set up at the start. Overall the game could have been entertaining and enjoyable, but falls flat, and will sit forgotten at the bottom of my games list.… Expand
