REVIEW - Castle Pals on Xbox One
Review By Jon Donnis
I was sent a copy of Castle Pals by Ratalaika Games S.L. to review.
You play as either Kylee or Owen in this simple platform game. With Kylee you jump, punch and kick your way through the levels and with Owen you fly above your enemies. Set in "Castle Pookapick" which is an awesome name for a Castle! The game play is pretty simple. Get from point A in the level to point B. Do it within a certain set time and you earn a gold medal.
Of course it is never just that simple, there are traps to stop you, doors you have to figure out how to open. And of course enemies that want to kill you.
In total there are 40 levels, you will find yourself getting through the first half relatively quickly, but then slowly things get tougher and you suddenly realise that the game is not as easy as you first thought.
For Gamerpoint collectors you will very quickly collect these, which is always satisfying.
The game has a great old school feel, from the retro style graphics to the music.
This is a fun game, it really is as simple as that, a fun easy to enjoy platform game, that relies on game play first. And for a fraction under £5/$5/€5 on all formats you cant really go wrong.
Castle Pals is out now, and I highly recommend it. And I score it a strong 8/10
