Getting sucked into a painting doesn’t exactly sound like a grand ol’ time, although perhaps Beebz can at least make it fun with a fast-paced trip through this surreal neon-coated landscape in search of her friends. Oh yeah, they’ve also been sucked into that darn painting. Lots of people having a really bad day in Demon Turf: Neon Splash, just so that you, the player, can have a really good time. Sounds like a fair trade.
Now, those familiar with the original Demon Turf are bound to notice a few changes. For starters, there are “no stopgaps or combat” to slow things down – it’s all about platforming, and fast platforming at that. In a world that blends 3D and 2D, somehow. It’s weird. Don’t think too much about it. Do look at it, though. It’s quite pretty.
Anyway, while your main objective is, of course, to rescue your friends, diversions are plentiful. From collecting all the sweets, used to purchase the likes of modifiers and cosmetics, to finding the hidden vinyl that unlocks a slew of ‘remix’ levels, and last but by no means least, getting all the trophy times. How? Oh, I don’t know. Try going real fast, I guess.
Can you escape these dangerous & surrealist environments, using your platforming skills, to get back home?
Feel like slowing things down a bit, maybe take a breather? Photo Mode! Yup, whenever you aren’t going at breakneck speeds, it’s selfie time. Oh, and the whole experience can apparently be tweaked rather significantly, tailoring oh so many things to your liking. How exactly? Well, you’ll just have to pick up a copy and find out for yourself, as I have no first-hand experience with Demon Turf: Neon Splash.
So how about it? Beebz’s friends aren’t going to rescue themselves, ya know.
