DeathSpank is a comedic Action RPG with an interesting art style.
Where to buy: Steam
How long to beat: 15 hours
It took me a while to get this game, and I died a lot. But after a while, I learned tricks that kept me from dying or using up too many resources. And as you near the end of the game, there is less of a need to save your money.
This game was a lot of fun and I loved the art, sound, voices, and music. 🎨🎵 The combat mechanics were pretty simple, and the fortune cookie hint system was interesting and helpful. 🥠
Though I did find some of the level design perplexing. I would encounter or need to bypass enemies that were clearly too hard for my character or come back to areas I had already cleared to complete another quest when my character was clearly overpowered.
Another complaint about this game I had is regarding the fast travel system. The character would travel from outhouse to outhouse and upon exiting they would zip up their thong, I guess. 🚽 A neat twist. But my complaint is that you have to wait for the animation to complete to regain control of the game, which I feel it took too long.
