Big Crown: Showdown has been developed by Hyper luminal games, it is a fast-paced multiplayer combat game, it finds you running through 15 very crazy courses which have all manner of traps and obstacles in your way.
The game starts off with the Old king Krabbit sat on his throne when suddenly the Great wizard Fonkin appears to take over the kingdom, which he does by throwing the king out the window and teleporting the Kings err…. Brave? Knights known as the Grumblegard forward 100 years into the future.
This is where the game begins as the knights find themselves thrown into the showdown, but the real question is will the knight leave there DringleBox alone and work together to escape the showdown or will they continue to bicker and fight amongst themselves? Well let’s be honest the game wouldn’t exist if they didn’t continue to bicker and fight.
You can play the game locally or online, but you do need a min of 2 players if playing locally with a max of 4 players. You and your opponents will all have to race to the end of the run dodging obstacles along with punching you opponents off the side of the course to take the victory yourself. You all start each run with 5 lives and once all but one person runs out of lives it end or when you reach the end of the level is the other way it ends, you will gain a point for each kill you get and for each life you have remaining.
Big Crown: Showdown does look good with it having a very colourful cartoon look to it and the worlds have all manner of inventive traps and things that get in your way also the game runs well but for me there is not much to the game, I found it very boring and repetitive and where the controls do respond well they can be a little sensitive and it is very easy to over-shoot jumps and attacks and cost yourself silly lives in the process. I know the game has been designed to be a party game but the fact it only really has the one mode and its just the same thing repeated is a bit disappointing especially when there are other games with more options available out there for you to try and get the friends and family playing.
It is a shame the game play is so limited as all the game has to offer can be seen in a 1 min trailer for the game, so unfortunately I have to give the game a 3/10 as I don’t feel there is much here to offer the players.
