Glitch Busters: Caught on You is a one to 4 participant, cooperative, platforming shoot-’em-up from developer Toylogic. In a far-flung future, you play as 4 AI Tubers that may solely be described as emoji-faced Smarties with magnets for legs. They’re on a mission to cleanse Interland of Badface’s bugs and glitches, with the goal of restoring YohTube to its former glory.
Glitch Busters is level-based and sees your squad navigating platforms, fixing easy button-pushing puzzles, and vanquishing hordes of glitches throughout a wide range of environments, from a fiery volcano to a cyber cityscape. You possibly can change between every of the 4 jelly beans on the fly, commanding them to stack up or unstack for pushing buttons and dealing elevated harm.
General, the controls really feel very unresponsive. Getting the AI-controlled beans to comply with instructions takes an age, and generally does not even work as a result of one getting caught on the setting. To make issues worse, the pleasant AI is not adequate so that you can full the sport solo. They’re continuously taking harm from enemies, getting caught, or simply falling to their demise, forcing a restart. The enemy AI can also be extraordinarily fundamental — they’re going to slowly transfer straight in the direction of you, and do not feel like a risk till you are met by no less than a dozen without delay.
As you progress, you will be competing along with your fellow Skittles as to who can rack up essentially the most Likes, collectable cash littered all through every stage. These are used within the store to unlock new enemies, new weapons, and pick-ups. That is nice till you attain a blocked story degree that is unplayable till you acquire sufficient Likes to unlock the enemies required for the extent. This happens a number of instances all through the 4 to 6 hour marketing campaign and looks like a really pointless barrier.
Glitch Busters’ presentation additionally leaves loads to be desired, with a vivid, cartoony visible type that appears unfinished. Most of the fashions look very two-dimensional regardless that they’re in a 3D world; it’s totally jarring and appears utterly misplaced. The sound is equally irritating, with the characters making essentially the most horrendous noise when speaking. It was so insufferable we needed to change it off within the settings. The music, though upbeat, is not any higher with a soccer chant-sounding tune on fixed loop. It makes navigating the clunky consumer interface, with its sluggish cursor, that rather more irritating.
Should you can overlook the evident points Glitch Busters has with its poor presentation and fundamental AI, then there’s enjoyable available with associates within the type of some fulfilling boss fights and vehicle-based ranges later into the marketing campaign. Nonetheless, with out a buddy by your aspect, it isn’t price trawling by the remainder of the sport with a bunch of ineffective peas to get there.
