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.
