While he was nice in his first few hours, the strange control of the figure in addition to mentally tired stages had created a rather frustrating experience for me. Games that include humor are my favorite games. It could be silly humor like the conversations between Commander Shepard and the harassing journalist from Mass Effect or more sophisticated humor like pretty much everything that happens in Monkey Island games. Sometimes the humor comes from the way the main character speaks and sometimes, as in Human: Fall Flat, from the way she moves. Human: Fall Flat was first released in the summer of 2016 to the computer and this year it gradually reached all consoles when the Nintendo Switch received the last game. The game looks nice and I got the option to check it out and tell you how this puzzle-based puzzle game is related to other games I’ve played, and whether it’s a great game or you’d rather keep the money for another game. Human: Fall Flat is a puzzle game based on physical puzzles – that is, using your environment to reach different locations on the map, opening doors and advancing to the next puzzle. The game uses a character called Bob, and after the game, Bob is simply an ordinary person with no power over, although in my opinion Bob’s greatest power is the fact that he has almost no bones and is shaking like jelly in half the game. It’s really fun to walk with Bob from place to place and see him stagger like a drunk when all I try to do is go straight.
Bob not only goes but can jump and grab things with both hands on which we have full control. Bob needs to use his ability to hold on to things to get things moving around, pushing buttons and climbing different steps and slopes. Each stage opens first with a very long fall that also shows how Bob is actually a puppet on the wire and also serves as the loading window of the game and this is a very nice choice of developers who decided not to bore us with a simple window with the words “Loading” but made sure to amuse us a bit. After you have finished the long fall you enter the stages themselves and here the game stops being funny and starts to be quite annoying. Some of the puzzles are very simple and require the player to get from point A to point B with little use of Bob’s climbing abilities and perception. Another part of the riddles in the game requires the player to grab objects and make use of them, such as grab a large wooden crate to be used as a doorbell to open a door, or a large piece of wood to help the player to pass large intervals can not pass by a simple jump. Here comes my big problem with the game: some of the puzzles are really fun and nice, stimulate thought and make me better understand the steps and mechanics and physics of the player and the world around him and the other part of the puzzles fall into the category of “Ok, it was too easy” The more advanced puzzles felt like an increase in the amount of things to do and not in the amount of thinking I had to do. In puzzle games I like to adopt the brain in the later stages with bigger and more difficult puzzles that require me to understand the things I have done earlier and use the abilities and solutions I learned earlier in a way that makes them feel that I have been able to understand the game. This game sometimes felt like I was doing the same things over and over again except that I was adding something more to them, which made some of the other stages feel like tasks rather than raising them to the level of difficulty. The second thing that disappoints me in this game is how hard it is to control your character.
I admit, I really enjoy the way the character moves and moves in this world – it’s funny and it’s stupid and it will make you smile on the face with certainty. But when I get to the job where I have to jump between different platforms and almost reach its end just to fall because my character has decided to move her left foot an inch away after I finished the jump, it does not make me laugh – it annoys me. It happened to me much more than once in the few hours I played in the game. In addition, I had a few frustrating moments when I thought I was able to catch an object only to find that my hand was not holding it at all, so an indication of whether my hand was holding something, whether it was a wall or a crate or a piece of wood,. Better with friends Where the game does not disappoint is in the scene of his co-op situation. You can play with up to four friends on the net and this game proves that there are games that are simply fun with friends. Like the great Gang Beasts, which also includes funny creatures that can catch things and the possibility to play with other people, here too playing with friends will provide you with funny and amusing moments that will make you forget a little the fact that game physics and player control can be annoying. Alone I did not really enjoy the game but playing with another one person improved the experience very much. Also, the fact that you can dress Bob in any way you choose adds another humorous aspect to the game so you can play cop with an escaped prisoner trying to climb a mountain without stopping to catch each other. The bottom line This game can be summed up by one of his biggest strokes causing his biggest downfall.
The strange control of the character is fun at the beginning of the game but later can cause frustrating failures and moments when you regret buying the game. To be honest, the only thing that saves the game is the ability to play with friends who improve the game dozens of times and made me forget how much controlling the player irritated me. But if you buy the game just to play with other people then unfortunately the game will disappoint you as soon as you start playing alone.
