preview article I posted back two months ago about The Last Tinker: City Of Colors. I mentioned I wanted to see more, and I was very interested in running around the very graphical world of Colortown. Now I'm back with my review of The Last Tinker: City Of Colors.
In The Last Tinker you play as Koru a special character that harnesses the power to help out everyone. You see, Colortown used to be a great place where you could roam around safely and talk to anyone without a fuss. Then the different colors started to move into separate places throughout Colortown, and would refuse to talk to any other color that wasn't their own. A gray mess started to take over Colortown covering all the pretty colors with a grayness. Now it's up to Koru and his pals to save the day and bring back peace to Colortown.
There's a lot of things going on in this game. One moment you're sliding down a grind railing hopping over obstacles and the next moment you're figuring out puzzles with the help of your pals. The game is very well balanced where it doesn't force you into one type of gameplay for very long. It knows when to switch it up. There's also a fighting system used in this game to add to everything. During the game you'll unlock different color abilities, and you can buy upgrades to your moves throughout the game with the money you save up during each level. The fighting seems to hold up pretty well when it comes to controlling Koru.
In fact the game controls well during the game. My only hold up was when I was on the grind rails and would have to jump over obstacles. It seemed like the jumping was a little off. There's a lot of parkour-type gameplay in this game. Usually you hold down a button and move in the direction you want to go, and the game does some of the work for you. On the grind rails is when you have to time your jumps and I could never get it down. I will admit this could be my own fault but I feel like it could have went more smoothly as I jumped.
I wouldn't say this is a kid's game, but it sure is a game where you could play with children. The game is pretty easy, but that isn't a bad thing. Just go in knowing that there isn't much of a challenge when it comes to The Last Tinker. If I had a child of my own this would be a game I would play with them.
The game looks great graphically, and sounds great musically. There was actually this short musical tune that would play when you accomplished a goal. It reminded me of my ringtone so each time I heard it I would check my phone. Gave me a good laugh each time I checked my phone. The game goes way over the bar for graphics. I was very impressed.
Final Say: I liked The Last Tinker. It had great charm, dashingly good looks, and played very well. If you have a child of your own, or maybe you're some sort of fun uncle or aunt then this would be a great game to play together. Even if you're like me and have to play alone then I still think it's worth checking out.
