Publisher: Wadjet Eye Games
Developer: Chris Burton (Icebox Studios)
Genre: Humorous Adventure
Release date: 29 Feb 2012
Da New Guys: Day of the Jackass is a new title from Wadjet Eye Games, makers of the wonderful Blackwell series. This is an adventure game that just keeps on giving. If you like lighthearted adventures with a shot of arcade and a full drink of humor, then you need to check out this Da New Guys sequel.
The game follows the path of the wrestling team Da New Guys. The team consists of three members:
The puzzles in this game are as perfect as possible. Youíll probably get stuck, but you wonít be frustrated. Youíll be able to take a deep breath, put some thought into it and move on with the game. The direction you must take is clearly defined; itíll be a matter of putting the pieces together.
One of the key elements of this game, even more so than its predecessor, is the use of multiple characters. Sometimes only a single character can get an item, but then must hand the item to one of his teammates to solve a puzzle. At times this approach feels contrived, but it still adds a layer of challenge to the game that would not otherwise have been there.
An interesting addition to this game is the concept of achievements. If you solve puzzles certain ways or reach certain points in the game, you can be rewarded with an achievement. Each achievement comes with a bonus image, usually concept art or unused sequences. Itís a nice snapshot behind the making of the game.
In my review of the original game, I commented that the production values were a bit lacking. That is less the case in this new game. The game style and animation approach is similar, but presents some polish not present in the previous game.
The voices are more varied than in the previous installment. They are good enough to keep me entertained. The sound effects and background music are the only items not created exclusively for this game; but they fit into the general theme without issues.
Da New Guys: Day of the Jackass is the most lighthearted game I have played in awhile. If youíre looking for an adventure with wrestlers, full of puzzles and humor, then this is the game for you. Pick it up, and go for a round or two in the ring.
