Top Critic Average
Developer: Massive Monster
Publisher: Armor Games
The sequel to the award winning Super Adventure Pals, ride your giraffe across an open world, discover secrets, bash up some baddies and enter a colorful world of laughter and adventure where using a giraffe’s tongue as a helicopter propeller is a legitimate means of transport.
The game begins as a simple rescue story; Mr. B kidnaps your father in front of you and immediately the clock begins ticking. You must get him back before your Papa is turned into a tasty meat-based snack (garnished with a splattering of mustard and a side of pickles) in Mr. B’s burgeoning fast food empire.
However, things are not as simple as they first seem and before you know it your journey takes you face to face with zombie pirates, giant evil trees, bosses made of breakfast foods, your very own evil clone and of course, post-apocalyptic dinosaurs! It will be a huge adventure, but with your friends by your side you can take on anything…

The Adventure Pals Trailer
There are several issues marring The Adventure Pals that prevent it receiving my whole-hearted recommendation. Yet, despite these problems, I very much enjoyed my time in its zany embrace. Its quirky characters, breezy story and colourful game world proved to be enchanting, while its solid platforming and combat mechanics, in conjunction with local co-op play, kept me on my couch till the end of the story. If you have a pal to go adventuring with, then The Adventure Pals is well worth a look.
