    Death Road to Canada – Xbox One Review

    There’s a zombie apocalypse.

    You have a car with very little gas.

    Every city is different.

    Everyone you meet is different.

    All you want to do is get to Canada.

    Described as a “Permadeath Randomized Road Trip Simulator”, Death Road to Canada is that and so much more.

    Death Road to Canada Review The Mommy Gamers Mike Robles

    With retro-inspired graphics, Death Road to Canada not only succeeds on creating a great retro look, but also excels at creating a great retro sound. Upbeat and jazzy at times, the soundtrack provides a great background as you make your way from Florida to Canada. Not only does Death Road to Canada draw inspiration from retro games, it also borrows some aesthetics from old horror movies. There are filters such as “grain” and “glitch” which make the game look like an old grindhouse film. If you want to see a zombie massacre in all it’s hi-def glory those filters can be turned off.

    Death Road to Canada sees players driving from Florida to Canada while encountering strangers, deserted towns, and zombies. Lots and lots of zombies. As you make your way to the great white north you need food, water, gas, medical supplies and more to keep you and your party healthy and happy. There is also an RPG element as you encounter other survivors sometimes you have to make a decision as to whether or not you can accommodate them.

    One of the more unique aspects in Death Road to Canada is  the character creator. You can start the game as a random character, or you can create your own unique version of yourself, or loved ones. While yes, a character creator is nothing new, what makes it unique in Death Road to Canada is how the character creator is implemented into the game. There are several modes available from the start, with more available upon first completion of the game. One of those modes will actually have everyone you’ve created show up as other party members in game. So if you ever wanted to see how well you and your friends would do in the event of a zombie apocalypse, this is your chance.

    Since the levels are randomized the replayability of Death Road to Canada is incredibly high. I’ve played it about 20 times and each time was a completely different adventure. Yes, I died each time without ever making it to Canada, but I had fun dammit! At one point each of my humans died and I was playing as a dog. The dog drove a car. Let me repeat that statement: THE DOG DROVE A CAR.

    Death Road to Canada is difficult enough to give any player a challenge, but not so difficult that you’ll rage quit. Each time you play there’s some new tactic that you’ll want to try. You’ll always run into someone new who has some awesome new powers. You will (almost) always die. Death Road to Canada is a bloody good road trip that you won’t want to end… even if you have to pee. Because rest stop bathrooms are gross, and they have zombies… you should just hold it until you get to a mall or something.

    Death Road to Canada is available for purchase on Humble Bundle here and also on Steam. The Mommy Gamers are Humble Bundle affiliates. Using our link helps support The Mommy Gamers and Extra Life Charity.

    Farming Simulator Nintendo Switch Edition Review & Giveaway

    Farming Simulator Nintendo Switch Edition allows players to take on the challenges of the modern farmer.

     Farming Simulator 17 originally released to PC back in 2016. The Nintendo Switch Edition makes the farming fun more portable, but removes the ability to mod the game as PC players seem to enjoy doing. You still get the same amazing farming experience however. Explore a huge open world including a detailed North American environment, loaded with farming activities and more than hundreds of acres of land.

    If driving is your thing you’ll be excited to hear that you can drive over 250 authentic farming vehicles and equipment from over 75 manufacturers, including brands such as Challenger, Fendt, Massey Ferguson and Valtra. Transport your goods in trucks and trailers, or load and drive trains to reach your destination. Outside of driving, farming life will keep you very busy as you harvest crops, tend to your livestock, take part in forestry work, and sell your products to expand and invest in your farm!

    My eight year old daughter Hailey took the reigns on this review:
    Farming Simulator is a fun game, but has no quest that makes it fun to play and the game gives you a tour of the game and the best part of the game is harvesting and the cute animals that produce every day you come back to the game so the game is really peaceful and the future in the game depends on what you do in the game hire workers to do jobs for you and your farm the game gives you reports too.

    You can pick up a copy of Farming Simulator Nintendo Switch Edition on Amazon here, or if you’re feeling lucky…

    Rad Rodgers – Xbox One Review

    I’m Rad As Heck

    Rad Rodgers was a successful Kickstarter project that made $30k more than it’s original $50k goal. It promised the return of 90s platforming games made with modern technology. After watching Jax play it for a little while I can say this game did deliver on it’s promise of a 90s plattformer. All the way down to it’s difficulty.

    I managed to get a copy of Rad Rodgers and loaded it up. The graphics are cartoony and bright just as you would expect for a game like this. Controls were slick and precise. Beautiful and lush worlds graced my screen as Rad and his partner, Dusty, took to the stage. I was prepared for difficult, and was met with a nice challenge. Not too overly frustrating the game captures the nostalgia of games like Commander Keen or Earthworm Jim. It’s hard enough to keep you playing, but not so hard you quit.

    One element I was not prepared for, was Dusty. Dusty is a grizzled video game cartridge that LOVES to break the 4th Wall. Not quite as funny as Deadpool, but just as annoying. We get it, you’re in a video game. We don’t need the constant reminder. Dusty does have his own section in the game where he has to go into the games code and find missing assets in order for Rad to reach new parts of the levels.

    The world design is almost like a Metroidvania with no clear indication of which way to go. Eventually the game has a natural way of getting you pointed in the right direction while making you feel like you found it yourself. The worlds are pretty large and have secret areas as well as hidden items throughout. There aren’t a ton of worlds though and most gamers can probably beat this game in around 4 hours. Serious collectors will go back and replay to get those completionist achievements.

    Rad Rodgers gets a lot of things right. Most “retro” games these days tend to focus on graphics and difficulty. Rad Rodgers manages to have a great looking game, with solid graphics and excellent gameplay. There is some customization in the game which I feel is neat, if you don’t want Dusty cussing up a storm or don’t want to see a ton of blood, there’s a “Kids Version” of the game which tones all of that down. This makes for a welcome addition for parents who want to give their kids something to play.

    If you’re looking for a fun throwback to when times weren’t as scary, Rad Rodgers will take you there. Fun, funny, and challenging, Rad Rodgers is a delight to be around. Dusty, however, can be kind of a jerk.

    Late To The Game – SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell [Xbox One]

    When You’ll Go Through Hell To Get Your Beer Back

    Hello readers and welcome a new series called Late to the Game. Where I will be reviewing some older titles that you might have missed. For this first installment I’ll be looking at SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell out now on Steam, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.

    SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell is a first person speedrunning game inspired by Quake and Super Meat Boy. Developed by Pine Studio and published by Headup Games SEUM is an intense journey through Hell. Marty was just minding his own business when a group of demons kicked his door down and stole his limited edition beer. In the midst of the scuffle Marty and another demon both lost their arms. With a little bit of self surgery Marty attaches a demon arm to his shoulder and dives into Hell to get his beer back.

    Right from the start SEUM throws players right into the fire. Players will run, jump, shoot fireballs and pick up power-ups such as teleport, anti-gravity and creating platforms. The movement in SEUM is incredibly smooth and forces players to think fast. Players must be careful because every move they make will register when Marty is traveling at high speeds, one wrong move can mean death.

    The music and sound in SEUM fits the Hell aesthetic perfectly. Sick guitar riffs and heavy metal tunes blast their way into your earholes as Marty grunts his way through the game demanding his beer back. The sound of fire coming from his hands has that wonderful singe and crackle to it.

    If you’re looking for a game that is both frustrating and rewarding I highly recommend you give SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell  a look. It keeps track of your time as well as friendly and world leaderboards to keep you trying over and over again to get that perfect run. There are even some other game modes that focus purely on time and speed. In fact, at the time of this writing SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell is on sale on Steam for $5. That’s one HELL of a deal… see what I did there? One HELL of a deal? Get it? You get it.

    Rise and Shine

    Rise and Shine Game ~ First Part ~ The Mommy Gamers

     

    In Rise and Shine from Adult Swim games, a young boy named Rise is enjoying a seemingly normal day at Candy Mall when chaos ensues. Rise quickly discovers his home planet, Gamearth, is under attack by gruns from Nexgen planet. Surrounded by dead bodies and complete destruction a hero named Blink uses his last dying breath to hand over Shine, a magical gun with an oddly sarcastic sense of humor. Honestly, I could type out the rest of the story…but I kind of already made a YouTube video about it. Enjoy the video, and my very poor gaming skills.
