GUTS AND GLORY Free Download GAMESPACK.NET On the face of it Guts and Glory is an indie game by a first time dev. That in itself usually wouldn’t present a problem, but it is evident this is a game in thrall to the likes of Twitch and YouTube streamers and a host of Kickstarter backers from r/gaming. The second isn’t the problem, it’s the former. No doubt this game makes for great commentary as you play, but sadly there’s not much in the way of game otherwise. Our man HakJak has used Unity in conjunction with a host of generic and community sourced 3D model assets. The placeholder models from the Kickstarter gifs have made their way into this, the full release game. This gives the game a rather plain look but that’s not the main problem. .TOP/BEST ADULT VIDEO GAMES IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

It’s the gameplay that’s the issue. It generally follows the same template each time. You have to make your way, via a series of checkpoints, to a goal on a rickety physics-modelled vehicle, be it a bicycle or a family car. Or even a rocket propelled lawn chair. This isn’t as much fun as it sounds. It even had a glitchy trophy that didn’t unlock when we fulfilled the criteria of finishing a course using it. Score! If it were just a point to point racer, we could get past that. When obstacles designed to maim and injure you come into the equation that it all starts to unravel. One early level features an innocuous enough suburban road. Only there’s landmines to avoid. Okay, so far so explosive. These in conjunction with unerringly accurate dodgeball cannons that prove immediately fatal make for an incredibly frustrating section.

1,000+ Workshop Levels and growing!

You can’t tell you’ve been targeted by a cannon until it’s too late and your character model has been turned into so much chum. You feel compelled to retry over and over again. It was at this point that we unlocked our first and only trophy, a shiny turd as it happened. But still we persevered despite all this. Another level introduces spinning blades that also prove immediately fatal upon contact with them. The imprecise controls make themselves known at this point. Maybe they work better with a mouse and keyboard. But for us at least, they really didn’t lend themselves to precisely maneuvering through various deathtraps. Yet more deaths ensued and we sacked off another level to try another. There are eight groups of levels to play through, but by the time we explored the extra levels we didn’t want to play more.

As a reviewer this doesn’t sit well with us, but there’s no fun to be had here. The music is plinky MIDI styled stuff, very much a throwback to days of yore when we played our games on a EGA display on a 286 with a Gravis joystick (look it up, kids). In evoking nostalgia for those days, it’s probably not achieving what it set out to do. It’s entirely possible this game has sailed wide of the mark for us, as we’re not millennial Twitch streamers with subscribers and viewers to appease. It’s probably hilarious if you’re fourteen, just not forty four. We like to play games for fun, but Guts and Glory leaves little more than a bad taste in our mouths and a trophy list ghost we’re never likely to revisit.

There’s nothing quite like a peaceful bike ride through the local park. The sun is shining. The birds are singing in the trees. The buzzsaws are whirring. Wait? Buzzsaws?! Oh dear, you’ve just been decapitated and delimbed by a series of deadly blades bouncing down a hill. Maybe not so peaceful, then… This is the world of Guts and Glory, a physics-based pain simulator that tasks you with guiding a hapless character (or duo) through a variety of seemingly peaceful settings that just happen to be laden with arrow-flinging turrets, saws and landmines. It’s crude, it’s gory and it’s totally throw-away in its ultraviolent slapstick, but that’s just part of its low-rent charm. Much like Getting Over It (the PC-based hit that did the rounds on Twitch for a while, inducing rage with its physics-driven ‘man climbing a mountain while a sledgehammer’ premise) Gold Rush The Game

Guts and Glory is all about seeking that satisfying sweet spot between avoiding obstacles, staying on your vehicle and pulling off a leaderboard-topping time. You’ll almost certainly mess up, and almost certainly turn the air seven shades of blue, but you’ll still be having a laugh in between all those involuntary swears. The bloody fun is broken up into nine sets of challenges, each tied together by one or more of the game’s hapless characters. These victims range from Jack and Jill (an old man riding a BMX with a lady riding passenger in a cart tied to the back, obviously) to the quad-bike-toting Mick and his love for all things camo. Each comes with their own strengths and weaknesses, making them better suited to certain challenges than others. The Yang Family, with their open-top sedan, offer a more stable vehicle, but it’s unwieldy to control

Some Easter Eggs for you to find

Especially when cornering. John and Debra (a couple on a bicycle, with the letter member of the duo strapped into a baby seat on the back) offer the most all-around setup, but it’s easy to lose your balance and feels back-heavy when making jumps. If you’re expecting the balanced two-wheeled rides of the Trials series – a franchise that’s clearly had a big impact on Guts and Glory’s obstacle-course nature – you’re in for a rude awakening. Let’s be honest, this game isn’t going to win any awards for its looks – but you soon realise that’s kind of the point. The ugly character models and environments that look like they’re straight out of a crude mid-’90s foray into 3D animation are part of the game’s purposeful low-fi aesthetic. However, when your poor character gets diced by a set of buzzsaws and their blood turns into giant, solid shards of red

You know there’s clearly a few glitches that need patching out as well. There are some technical issues that are hard to chalk up to conscious design choices, though. There’s a little too much slowdown at times, which can really impact on the more complicated challenges where you’re dodging landmines and leaping off ramps one after another. It doesn’t impact every run, but it’s frustrating enough when it does happen – the drop in frames can really affect your enjoyment. The loading times between retries is also another issue. It simply takes far too long to refresh the game. It’s likely an issue to do with the size of each map – you can explore each one in real time, but we’d much rather have smaller, more linear maps (and have shorter loading times as a result) than sandbox designs that lead to protracted loading times.

It’s an issue that takes you out of the moment-to-moment fun that makes Guts and Glory such a great little indie outing.The Switch version is also missing one of the  best features found on PC – the map editor. It’s this omission that makes the handheld iteration such a hard sell over the one found on Steam, because it doesn’t boast the kind of mode that will keep you coming back for more. Being able to construct insanely difficult challenges would tie right into that same sense of community-driven longevity that’s made the likes of Super Mario Maker so timeless, but without it (and the 1,000-plus fan-made tracks you can currently play on PC) Guts and Glory remains a diminished and hollow version of itself.Which is a shame, because there’s so much to love about Guts and Glory’s combination of slapstick silliness and physics-driven gore.
