Summary

Donuts N Justice is a very simple game, you play as one of the two 80s era cops, your playground is a collection of five locations and you traverse it via auto-scrolling. You can move all around and shooting is done with a simple left or right button press. The formula for progression is simply a case of killing bad guys, saving hostages, and picking up the variety of guns and enhancements as you go! In-play it’s basic but gets the job done, trophy hunters will love how it takes less than an hour to nail the Platinum. You can click the main game in half-hour easily as it only has five boss fights across the four locations. Make life easier for yourself by buying the many hats that grant powers such as earn money faster or move faster, it’s again all very basic but it works. I came away from Donuts N Justice thinking it was fine for a quick blast but I would never go back and there is little reason to even contemplate such a thing.

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!
