Mr Shifty Review

Mr Shifty Review: Mr. Shifty is action-packed with so much potential, but ultimately will lead you into a very slow and boring story.

 

With an overhead view and the ability to teleport, Mr. Shifty allows for an arcade style experience that’s generally welcomed. However, common with arcade style games, Mr. Shifty lacks the compelling story that the excellent gameplay deserves.

As you play as Mr. Shifty, you’re teleporting in and around rooms and groups of enemies, busting them up left and right while you make your way through each level. For nonsensical action, this game definitely delivers. Explosions go off as you try not to get shot by security guards and turrets. Once you are used to the controls and remember the various types of dangers and enemies you face, everything sort of begins to feel natural.

The art style and direction Mr. Shifty takes makes you feel immersed in your own comic book adventure. It might as well say POW! every time you teleport into punching armed security guards in the face. You also have the ability to pick up various objects that you find in order to use them as melee weapons as well. While hit detection can be a little bit on the iffy side, for the most part the mechanics of Mr. Shifty deliver on the promise of bringing you action-packed fun.

If you are looking for some time to kill while you’re in between deciding which video game you want to pick up and play, give Mr. Shifty a try. Sure, its story most likely won’t peak your interests and is easily forgettable, but sometimes it’s fun to just run around destroying your enemies like the badass you are. By the time you are done with Mr. Shifty and are onto the next time, you will most likely forget all about it though. I would really only recommend Mr. Shifty to people who are into old fashioned arcade cliches.
