Sumoman   PC (Steam) 

Janky and Humorous Platformer    3/5 stars

Sumoman is a puzzle platformer with janky physics, difficult platforming, destructible objects, sushi roll collection, and the ability to reverse time (thank God). Trying to keep the morbidly obese Sumoman on his feet is the main feature of this game that sets it apart from other platformers.

Sumoman travels home from a sumo tournament to find everyone sleeping. Something is wrong, and Sumoman has to figure out what is going on and save everyone from the dream spell.

Presentation
The game is visually average for platformers these days, but does have 14 levels, each of which is different. The game incorporates indoor and outdoor levels, as well as dark areas that needs you to move around some lighting elements. There's plenty of humorous sumo falls and grunting that will keep you smiling.

Gameplay
Sumoman is appropriately sized for optimum obesity and the psychics are built just right to make sure he can't get up if he falls over. The controls are janky, purposely. Luckily you can reverse time whenever you need it, which makes this game actually playable.

Originality
The original aspects of this game include the janky unique physics and humor.

Replay Value
Replaying levels to collect all sushi rolls for achievements does add some value. This game also has a 2-player split-screen mode to race your friends. I wouldn't expect this game to provide more than about 20 hours worth of enjoyment (or punishment).

Recommendation
I bought this game hoping we could play some local coop with friends. Unfortunately, the campaign is only single player. Buy this game if you love platformers, want something different and uniquely challenging, and can grab this game for under $10 bucks.
