PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist review (iOS / Universal)September 28, 2015
10 word description: Retro style 2D action platformer. Bosses, unlockables, humour, No IAPs.
10 word review: The most essential ‘for gamers – by gamers‘ iOS release this year.
You will like this if you enjoy: Platform games. Hard platform games. Platform games with some side-scrolling shooter levels. Parodious style gaming humour. Retro 16-bit graphics. Flatulent dogs.
The good news: Controls, visuals, effects, level design, fun… it’s all here, all good, and it all works well together. Add in three difficulty levels, loads of unlockable stuff (characters, power-ups), no IAPS, and cloud-syncing, and you have one of the best platform/action games on iOS.
The bad news: The only problem I have with this game is understanding why some gamers are refusing to play a really good game because they don’t like the extremely popular YouTube gamer PewDiePie. Whatever next, refusing to play Call of Duty because you don’t like war? Hang on…
Arcadelife verdict: This is a great game.
