Fans of classic platformer games rejoice, because the highly anticipated Save Me Mr Tako: Definitive Edition game has finally arrived. Developed by Christophile Games and published by Limited Run Games, this charming and nostalgic game pays homage to the classic 2D platformers of the 1990s while introducing some modern twists.
The game follows the story of Mr Tako, a friendly octopus who is living a peaceful life in the kingdom of Octfall. However, one day, war breaks out between the octopuses and the humans, forcing Mr Tako and his fellow octopuses to flee to the surface world. In an act of heroism, Mr Tako saves a human princess named Iro from drowning, leading to unexpected consequences. The game then follows Mr Tako’s journey to find a way to end the war and bring peace between the two sides.
Save Me Mr Tako: Definitive Edition features traditional side-scrolling platformer gameplay, similar to classics like Super Mario Bros and Kirby’s Dream Land. Players control Mr Tako as he navigates through various levels, defeating enemies, collecting items, and solving puzzles along the way.
One of the unique aspects of this game is Mr Tako’s ability to shoot ink at enemies, turning them into platforms that he can use to reach higher areas. This adds a puzzle element to the gameplay, as players must strategically use his ink to progress through the levels.
Moreover, as Mr Tako ventures through the levels, he also has the ability to wear different hats that give him special abilities, such as increased jump height or faster ink production. This adds a fun and customizable aspect to the gameplay, as players can mix and match hats to find their preferred playstyle.
Visuals and Sound
Save Me Mr Tako: Definitive Edition’s graphics are a charming throwback to the 8-bit and 16-bit era, with pixelated sprites and backgrounds that will surely evoke a sense of nostalgia. The game also features a variety of environments such as forests, deserts, and ice worlds, each with its own unique design and enemies.
The game’s soundtrack is also a lovely tribute to classic video game music, composed by French composer Marc-Antoine Archier. Each level has its own catchy and upbeat tune that adds to the overall charm of the game.
Additional Features in the Definitive Edition
In addition to the main game, the Definitive Edition also includes new features and improvements that were not present in the original release. This includes improved controls, revamped menus, new difficulty modes, and the addition of checkpoints in levels.
The Definitive Edition also includes a new playable character, Princess Iro, who has her own unique abilities and story. This adds more replay value to the game, as players can experience the story from a different perspective.
Save Me Mr Tako: Definitive Edition is a delightful game that is a must-play for fans of classic platformers. Its charming visuals, fun gameplay, and nostalgic soundtrack make it a joy to experience. Whether you’re a veteran gamer who grew up with 2D platformers or a new player, this game is sure to bring a smile to your face.
