THE HD ADVENTURES OF ROTATING OCTOPUS CHARACTER

Dakko Dakko
Vita/PSN

Let’s face it, Ringo usually got the kiddie songs in The Beatles. But if you’ve assumed an octopus’ garden – whether shaded or not - to be all breezy-easy, then you might wish to engage in another ponder.

How, you may well also ponder, can we be so confidently confident in this assertive assertion? Well, we’ve been playing extensively in an octopus’ garden – or, more precisely, an octopus character’s garden (and city, desert, festival and more, too) - and they’re abundantly abundant with perilous perils! Really real nasty nasties! Horrible horrors! Nefarious, umm, nefarities? OK, we’ll get on with it...

In this simple, yet alarmingly challenging, two-button arcade puzzler, you control the destiny of Rotating Octopus Character, a bilaterally symmetric cephalopod mollusc on a mission to save bubba octopi from such perilous perils and nasty nasties, etc, as big barking woofer dogs, rampaging police helmets and... Well now, that would be telling!

Some 70-plus levels feature to increasingly baffle the tactical neurons within your cerebral cortex (or whichever part of the bonce in which the bit that handles strategic planning is encased – seriously, do we sound Poindexterical?!). All you have at your disposal is the ability to jump or change direction, which of course is governed by where you’re placed within your spin cycle at any given time, for this eight-legged groove machine doesn’t have the word ‘Rotating’ in its name without justification.

Unless you’re all genius-like you’ll start off wondering “WTF?!” or even “WTFF?!” Mastering the ways of the spinning skeleton-free personality takes much skill, and you’ll likely have the poor thing going splattity-splat all over the shop for a while before things get all clicky.

However, when they do you’ll be happier than a Ringo with a royalty cheque. Warm below the storm in his little hideaway beneath the waves, natch.

take me back to the start...
