Summary

Boomerang Fu is a party game like no other. First off let’s get this straight Boomerang Fu has no online multiplayer but it does have a remote play so others can join you. OK, that’s off my chest, Boomerang Fu is a game whereby 2-6 players face off in one of thirty arenas and your goal depends on the game mode but it is usually a case of out killing your opponents. The scoring is simple, you all get one life per round, and one point is scored for each kill, fill your bar first and you win. The only other game mode that is an exception to that rule is the Golden Boomerang mode and instead is a case of holding the item for the longest time. Controls are simple with a 3 button layout whereby you can dash, slash, and throw a boomerang. Power-ups will appear in the levels and give you the edge and they vary from disguises to bubbles to speed boost and many more. The game overall is a lot of fun and even in solo is fun thanks to full bot support and difficultly modifiers. You may not be playing this hardcore in solo or even with friends but it is a game that should be in your multiplayer bundle and is a ton of fun with friends even if the actual game part is somewhat lacking.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
