Bean’s Quest review (iOS/Universal)July 26, 2011
♫ “I like bouncing, boing boing boing…”
This review has been updated to include content and features from version 2.0.0
10 word description: Retro platformer; guide constantly bouncing bean to 3 separate level goals.
10 word review: Fantastic retro platform game, beautiful yet often incredibly hard! Recommended.
You will like this if you enjoy: Retro platform games, or pretty much any kind of platform game. Games with some incredibly tough level goals to achieve.
The good news: Every time I get a new platform game to review it looks like the best game ever. This has it all – graphics, performance, level design, cute characters, great set of separate level goals (collect gems, find pet, minimum number of jumps) and there’s no time limit – hurray! (If you get this and Emberwind, you probably won’t need another platform game for quite a while).
The bad news: Since update 2.0.0 the only bad news is I that am getting completely defeated by many of World 2’s level goals. This is not a game fault, I love it.
Arcadelife verdict: A brilliant game that has finally matured with update 2.0.0 into a great package. I can wholeheartedly recommend this to platform game fans now, and it gives me considerable satisfaction to finally award it a far more appropriate rating… see below
Arcadelife rating: 91/100
Here’s a preview of world 2, available at last in version 2.0.0!
