Last week I wrote a Blog about a load of awesome DS games that had managed to pile into the dark abyss of the backlog. I also asked the ever loving community of destructoid to pick 3 of the 6 games for me to play and thus “The ones that got away” was born! Today, as you may have already gathered, I will be sharing my opinions on puzzle platformer; Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure.
That’s not to say the difficulty is always a good thing. My main gripe with the game is how few and far between checkpoints are on some of the massive levels. It really impedes your progress in a game that otherwise has an almost perfect learning curve. I didn’t play the game for about three days after getting particularly annoyed at having to start a whole 15 minute segment again for the tenth time.
Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure is (regardless of checkpoint hiccups) a bloody good game. If you’re not put off by a good challenge and are known to enjoy a good platformer or two then I can’t see why you wouldn’t love this game. In the words of Henry Hatsworth himself, “Good Show!”
My next blog will hopefully be up a little quicker than this one was, and will be my impressions of Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia. Watch this space!
