FINALLY! It seems like I have been waiting for this game for years. And I have since the Kickstarter launched on February 25, 2015, a little bit over four years ago. The game is out. I absolutely adore the ToeJam & Earl from 1991 and Back in the Groove feels exactly like that. If you are nostalgic for that game you will probably like Back in the Groove. I don’t think the game is going to make many new fans though. You wander around Earth looking for ship parts to rebuild your ship and fly back home to Funkotron. Oh and you open random presents you find on the ground in order to power up and make your travels easier. And then you ride elevators to go between levels. It sounds ridiculous because it is.
Let’s get into the review.
TL,DR: At the end, as per usual.
I guess spoilers. Although I’m not entirely sure how I could spoil this game. Story is not the main focus and the game has very little story.
