Summary

Whipseey is a cutesy fun little charact that along with the color palette, Looks and even feels like a Kirby game. Whipseey is a platformer in its most basic form with one new addition, Your whip. This allows you to swing over gaps and attack enemies. Outside of all, this is a fun bouncy soundtrack and big boss fights. Whilst I never felt like I was playing a game with new mechanics or gimmicks I did believe that I was playing a game that is well designed and tightened up on so many downfalls of other platformers. Basically go in thinking you are playing a polished game and less anew advancement in the genre and you will be fine. It is not bad and it is not amazing, It is short but fun.

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!
