Cons:

  • No leaderboards.
  • Levels feel the same with the same enemies used world after world.
  • Repetitive game play.
  • All items are cosmetic bar like three which are used to open short cuts.
  • Few hit detection issues.
  • When you get hit,  you get pushed back which can easily make you hit another obstacle and bosh game over!

Funk Of Titans is actually a lot of fun in short bursts.  It looks and sounds like a mobile game with all IAP unlocked.  Thing is if you play it like a mobile game then your going to enjoy it more. Hammer it and you will notice the flaws,  the lack of enemy characters etc. In short it plays like a mobile game, has some good ideas but never pushes past mobile gaming to a full 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!
