There’s always that one game that’s incredibly creepy, but yet stays so insanely addictive? Well Incredipede happens to be one of those games.
The suffix pede would be enough to draw an inference of a one-eyed segmented creature being the star of our circus, possibly augmented with abilities that simply awe the player. Here, players control a strange organism with the ability to change its limbs to gain an edge over tricky environments. These include incredibly long legs to latch onto walls for climbing purposes, or even multiple rotating spokes to serve as paddles to get across river channels. Players then navigate through obstacles to get to the other end of the map, while collecting fruit pieces to end the level.
The attractive point of the game lies in how weird, for lack of a better word, Incredipede is but yet remains so enticing. This game carries one of the most unique concepts I’ve ever come across, especially in casual and mobile gaming. I loved how while each level was soothingly familiar with the eerie music leaving players in a trance and backdrop, they were played out independently no thanks to completely different shapes my creature took on.
While for the most part the game is played on preset levels with predetermined creature modifications, a level editor allows for users to set up their own versions and test their skills.
The controls of the game also make it extremely easy to catch on early. Dual buttons for rotating make it dummy-proof, and instructions to play aren’t even necessary anymore.
Priced at $3.99, Incredipede is definitely worth the purchase. It definitely is one of the more unorthodox titles out there, but is also definitely one of the top few musts to try.
Would I Buy Again:Yes
Learning Curve:Very easy. Just 2 buttons.
Who Is It For:Anyone who is looking for something new to try.
What I Like:The game concept is very unique and I've not seen any game quite like this.
What I Don't Like:NA
Final Statement:Definitely my favorite game at the moment
