Juicy Realm is a shooting game based on my analog sticks and it comes from the Chinese developer Space Can, the game contains automatic generation elements for stages, and we have obtained the Nintendo Switch version of the game through the publisher and here we are presenting its review to you.
This game is not the first game we review in Trogiming from the development of China, the number of indie developers in China is increasing little by little, and who knows, China may turn into a great force in developing video games in the future. Speaking of shooting games using my analog sticks, this brings back to our minds the memories of the great game Geometry Wars when it was first released on the Xbox 360 to become extremely popular and was developed by the genius development team Bizarre Creations responsible for the amazing racing series Project Gotham Racing, which It was not sustainable with the studio later bankrupted.
Automatic generation system
Our game that we are reviewing today is completely different in the way of playing from that game and fundamentally different in its construction and design structure, the game depends on the automatic generation system to build the stages, which means that the stages will differ dashingly each time you play them, but in fact, we see that this has not been added A lot for the game, the difference in the design of the stages did not contribute much to changing the way of playing or renewing it because the type of game itself (shooting) does not benefit much from this change, unlike other games perhaps, such as platform games or action, and the game suffers from a real problem. In this aspect, there is no real progression system, which means that every game cycle will be exactly the same as the previous one.
The way of playing
The gameplay in Juicy Realm is excellent and is not disputed, there is a large variety of weapons and there are upgrades for these weapons that can be obtained during the game and finish stages, each stage is divided into a number of areas similar to rooms or separate screens and there is a map that can be examined to find out where The next room to go to when finishing each room or screen and cleaning it from the enemies, the player will receive a reward, and during the play, it is possible to collect coins to buy some tools between stages such as a sandwich that can fill the health meter and weapons upgrades. At the end of each stage, there is the main leader of the aggressive fruits that represent the main enemy in the game, boss battles are innovative and varied although some bosses are a bit squishy.
The game, in general, is not long, and when you lose or finish the game, you will lose all the upgrades or weapons that you have collected, there is no system for developing the character from one game session to another, and there is no way to accelerate or facilitate the acquisition of weapons or upgrades, this makes the game As a whole, you suffer from repetition and limitations, and you will feel that everything you do is worthless, even when choosing other characters, we did not feel a big difference in the experience except with one of the characters who uses a white weapon that completely changes the confrontation method to become in the near term, although this increases the difficulty of the game, However, the character has the ability to block fire ammunition from enemies at the correct time.
There is an aspect that cannot be disputed on the quality of the game, which is the presentation side visually or audibly, the game's handwriting is beautiful, and although it is similar to many other independent games or games on smartphones, it is beautiful and full of bright colors, there are a forest and Desert, dark areas and so on, and bosses are designed with a high appeal of wild fruits, even the music is also good despite the variation in melodies, and the best one is the melody of the jungle area, but in terms of sounds, there is no voice acting of course.
We recommend Juicy Realm for fans of this type of games, provided it is obtained at a low price, as it offers fun and beautiful visual audio presentation, but this fun will fade away when you discover the limitations of the game and feel the repetition that will be achieved quickly.
Distinguished technical presentation visually and sound, enjoyable confrontations with enemies, and a large variety of weapons. Bosses are sometimes sponge balls, the lack of real depth in an experience that will lose its value and start repeating quickly.
Juicy Realm is fun for fans of shooting games, but the gameplay is limited and there is no real development in the experience, especially with the use of automatic generation of stages, and the experience will begin to repeat quickly to lose its value in a few hours.
