Platform fans rejoice, Mekazoo is coming your way in Q4 2015 for PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Wii U.
Players start out as speedy armadillo waking up to discover that all his friends have been turned into gigantic mekanimal bosses. Defeating each boss these animals return to their original forms and are unlocked as playable characters.
Mekazoo is a fast pace action platformer that has you switching between various animals as you progress your way through different levels. You are always paired up with 2 animals at a time in between check points as the levels are built around both in order to progress. Swing, boost, bounce, climb, or fly you way through levels. Whichever one you use is entirely up to the player and pair at the time.
The world is built in 3D but performs like a side-scroller. There is a dynamic camera in place that shifts with the character as they make turns through the world giving viewers new perspective on levels.
There are a total of 5 creatures that you control: speedy armadillo, acrobatic frog, springy wallaby, sturdy panda, and high-flying pelican. Each of these creatures come with their own set of moves and level design to accommodate platforming with these animals.
I had the pleasure of playing Mekazoo at PAX Prime, I felt very at home with the smooth controls and fast pace platforming. While not a soul crushing game of difficulty it provided a fun and immersive experience that is sure to delight fans of the platformer genre. The visuals look great and I felt that I could progress however I felt. Be sure to watch this game in the coming months.
