Summary

If you remember Geometry rush or whatever it was called, you played a cube and had to navigate all these tough levels as fast as you can. We’ll Flatlands is that but without the timer and instead of having a very neon-tastic aesthetic that is both cool and jarring in equal measure. For all the flash-bang wallop of the visuals it does make playing the actual game a right pain, effects trick your brain which in turn has you most timing jokes and Wall jumps, it’s an issue that always rears its ugly head. I like to play Flatlands for a bit every other night as the soundtrack is awesome, the controls are simple and the game does have its merits.

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!
