In Hayfever, the player takes control of Thomas – a young postman with a strong work ethic. There is just one tiny little issue… Thomas suffers from terrible (and we mean TERRIBLE) allergies. It is up to the player to use Thomas’s allergies to help him traverse a dangerous world, turning his weaknesses into strengths! Different allergens have different effects on Thomas – radically changing how he interacts with the world. Regular pollen allows him to build up a big sneeze to propel himself through the air. Smog, on the other hand, makes him swell up like a balloon. Peanuts… Well, peanuts are a WHOLE other story. FEATURES: - Quirky retro-inspired graphics - Demanding, sneeze-driven mechanics - Four worlds, spanning all four seasons - 140 levels, with 240 letters to collect (legend has it that collecting enough letters unlocks extra, extremely challenging levels…) - Allergy-fueled gameplay ranging from pollen and smog to nuts! - An A.M.A.Z.I.N.G soundtrack

Hayfever Reviews

Hayfever is a fun little platformer with a lot of creative ideas, that falls short of being great thanks to some badly designed obstacles and checkpoint issues. If you can get past the occasional frustrating stage, you'll find some great platforming in this charming world.

There are things to like about it, and I didn’t hate every minute of the 5 hours I put into it to get through the first 2 worlds, but I don’t see myself wanting to rejoin Thomas and Carlie on their quest to gather the rest of Thomas’ missing postage.

Retro in a way rarely touched on in modern gaming, Hayfever is a fun but challenging platformer with plenty of charm to spare.

Hayfever is a 2D platform in which we will help the mailman Thomas recover all his cards. Throughout the trip, we will have to deal with enemies and turn Thomas's allergy into an advantage to overcome all kinds of obstacles. It depends on us how to transform the weakness of the mailman into an advantage.
