Landflix Odyssey Review (Switch eShop)

It can be difficult to come up with original ideas. There is good reason to be asked where successful writers always get their ideas. No one else really has a clue.. Sometimes borrowing from others can do its best if done in a respectful and subtle way, as long as it is done well. Landflix Odyssey It’s not even a little subtle. Not only is the story heavily dependent on existing brands, but gameplay is a collection of trial-and-error mechanics without any unique ideas. That said is It ran successfully.

You play as a rally. Larry is an ordinary person who loves to spend a relaxing night with his favorite TV shows and cold beer.After his remote gives up the ghost, he replaces the battery as follows phosphorescent Batteries under his couch (as you do?). Not surprisingly, things get a little confusing and Larry finds himself obsessed with the Landflix realm. There, you need to visit the world of your favorite TV shows and recover the lost battery.

Built by Italian developer Fantastico Studio, translation issues occur immediately from the first cutscene. The text doesn’t flow at all, and its structure is almost comically poor.I can’t criticize this Too Many things, but if you want a consistent and engaging story, you can’t find it here. The game will eventually be billed as a parody, but if you get a recognizable brand and change all the names slightly, can you really classify it as a parody? I do not think so. Thankfully, the gameplay itself makes up for this with spades.

Each world you visit is based on a popular TV show: in turn, there are unique ones, elder thrones, bling devils, going mads, and standing zombies. Divided into several levels, the world all boasts its own gameplay mechanics. For example, Peculiar Stuff gives you access to parallel dimensions full of monsters, and Going Mad gives you time at the push of a button. Nothing has been done here before, but the individual gameplay mechanics really fit the theme of each world.

Ultimately, your goal is to reach A to B, avoid enemies and obstacles, and collect as many coins as possible along the way. These coins are used to open even more stages. The good thing is that if you can afford it, you can jump from one world to another. There are several boss battles scattered around, and there are some solid “special feature” levels that unlock one at a time as you complete each world.

Landflix Odyssey is saved by rewarding and fun gameplay, even though it doesn’t have any unique ideas. If you want drop-ins and drop-outs, each stage is just the right length. It’s long enough to stay busy for 4 to 5 hours. If you’re willing to forgive poor translations and weak attempts at parody, Landflix Odyssey is a solid 2D platformer worth checking out.
