  • Kill enemies with cherries (shoot them) or by jumping on them.

Cons:

  • Can’t double jump off a wall jump.

  • Same song over and over.
  • Same enemy types.

Summary

Foxy Land 2 is the sequel and with that, it does up its game somewhat. You get a nice opening presentation, the levels are displayed on a world map and there is more to collect. Buuuuut it does still have the same issues from the first game like invisible walls, annoying platform sections, and the jump still feels off? Anyway, the game plays fine for a part but don’t go in thinking it’s a whole new world or a massive change. FoxyLand 2 is just more of the same with a few nice touches here and there.

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!
