  • Remote Play blurb:
  • Remote Play is a relatively new feature on Steam, still in beta, that allows you to play local multiplayer games together over the Internet. However, it can happen that the controller of the other player is not recognized. We, therefore, recommend that you start the game in Steam’s “Big Picture Mode”, as this can fix the bug according to Steam. We are happy to be able to offer you PC players this tool exclusively with the help of Steam, despite perhaps minor problems, so that you can also play Gelly Break Deluxe together online.

Summary

Gelly Break Deluxe is very much a game best enjoyed in co-op and to be honest due to its simple gameplay and level design, it’s a game more suited to a parent playing with a younger child. You can play the game solo as you have a switch character button but it just shows the game many shortcomings like the level design, boss fights, and repetitive gameplay loop. Collect goo in levels is like coins or rings in any other game and it’s fine as they are plentiful and not tracked but the gameplay loop is nothing new or unique. You could play the game for an hour and get your fill, it is a chilled game so does have that going for it but anything else is just an average experience you have probably played before. It’s fine but it is very safe.

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!
