Bean's Quest is a gorgeous 2D platformer with a twist! Emilio has been cursed and his girlfriend kidnapped! Transformed by dark magic into a jumping bean, Emilio must bounce his way to victory through 50 levels spread over 5 worlds. Can Emilio rescue his one true love and find his missing pet axolotls?
Bean's Quest is for Windows, Linux, Linux64 and MacOS X!
Colorful graphics, and interesting gameplay. You 'hop' the whole game, which makes it certainly a very unique platformer. If you simply played through, this game wouldn't take more than a few hours, but you'd be missing the point. The levels, in general, are easy, but each level has three challenges (collect gems, basically this games coins), find 1 Axolotl, and finish the level under a certain amount of 'hops'. Each one is generally challenging, and usually one of each of them is very difficult to downright grueling to do, but the colorful atmosphere and the playful nature of the game never really get you that angry. This is gaming frustration at its finest! If you're someone who likes challenges in a platformer, then get this.
Amazingly fun game that is very beautiful in both visuals and audio. The gameplay is a platformer where you can't control your jumping.
It's a little short, but is well worth it for $5. You'll be replaying levels a lot, both due to difficulty and awards recieved for perfect performance.
This is such a strong reminder of Bill's Tomato Game. I loved that, and I love this.
In fact, the main "plot" being the main character's girlfriend being kidnapped, and him having to rescue her is so reminiscent of Bill's Tomato Game, I'm inclined to think the devs have played it. :P
But hey, that's a good thing. I'd recommend this to anyone.
