The Adventure Pals is an adventure platformer with a strong focus on real friendship mixed wonderfully with an interesting story.
Kicking you off with a dark incident around hot dogs. Your dad has been taken and you, your pet rock, and a tongue-helicoptering giraffe must fight your way through levels filled with platforming, imaginative enemies, and big bosses to save the world!
The Adventure Pals, The Review.
This game has clearly been designed by a team that understands and appreciated a good platformer.
Controlling the character feels expertly executed throughout. Even when you unlock power ups you still feel as if you don’t 100% need them to complete the levels.
That being said, when you start unlocking new moves and skills you may find yourself spending time exploring and experimenting ways to traverse the levels.

Solid, fun, yet at times challenging platform construction.
Platform teasing, giving hints of a higher or inaccessible platform to return too, is a very hard balance to achieve. Often you could find players rushing to complete the game or forgetting that these platforms were there. So giving you a hint and then the solution at the right times is so important. This game nails this, I found myself returning often.
As you adventure the experience in enriched by the music and SFX. During my play through I never felt the music getting tedious or annoying. Which it’s great when you consider if you wanted to complete the game 100% you could revisit levels an awful lot.
