Summary

With a game having fart in the title, You expect a certain amount of fart. They let you down by only having it as a level end noise and its nothing special. Immediately this pout a bad taste in my mouth (insert fart mouth joke here) Thankfully fartgate aside, The gameplay is very simple but fun enough, Graphics are easy on the eye even if we see a new pixel art graphic game almost daily, It won’t be a huge time sink or set the platformer genre up but it will give you a most pleasant experience and evoke many memories of games past, Its just once you do the game that it with no replay value. In conclusion its charming and fun enough to play minus a few tedious boss fights, Its cheap and worth a play if only for some easy trophies and classic platforming action.

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!
