Chenso Club Review Cons:

  • Only one game mode which is a campaign.
  • The jumping feels a bit off, a bit like jumping when you have bad lag.
  • No way to turn off gore/blood.
  • So easy to miss parts of the game like I missed all the Chirp stuff.
  • The performance is not that stable with a lot of slowdown and screen tearing.
  • Bare minimal graphics settings.
  • Can’t save mid-run, a game crash or switch-off will lose all your progress.
  • You have to clear the enemies in order to open up the next screen, if you accidentally jump off any side of the screen then it’s instant death.
  • Screens in levels can sometimes be straight-up empty.
  • Platforming is a bit hit-and-miss.
  • Not sure why you can smash things up as they just put you off rather than anything else.
  • Levels are very short.

Chenso Club is an action-packed brawler set in a 2D world. It plays out a lot like a Splatformer and what I mean by that is the game moves at a fast pace and you need to do the bare minimum to open up the next screen. You can attack in four directions and be honest, it’s a cool feature especially when you factor in that you can combo the attacks and make some cool aerial combos. The goal of the game is simple, keep pushing forward, killing bosses, and rescuing new characters to play all the while getting those likes and follows on the social media app Chirp! I liked the game for a few hours but it did start to just feel a bit repetitive for me, unlocking the new characters definitely helped keep my attention as some of the ones you unlock really change up the gameplay and how it all plays out. The controls are simple, and the premise is clear so there is a lot to like in Chenso Club but for me, I grew tired of it and it just took too long to get going or show me the goodies.

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!
