Summary

Eggggg – The platform puker is a platformer with a difference. It combines a free runner with pinpoint platforming. But you need to have a strong stomach, unlike our lead character. For he pukes all the time and fills up holes to swim up higher and all sorts.Eggggg – The platform puker is a fantastic almost Adult Swim looking game with solid animations and great level design. Multiple routes and secrets mean you always have a reason to come back. Not having leaderboards or a solid tutorial is a letdown and it will take a while to get used to how it plays but you get there and get a decent little game.

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!
