The Game Review
An instant comparison that comes to mind is the popular game Happy Wheels. For those who aren’t familiar either title, the game is sort of like the popular TV show Wipeout except with a lot more gore and a lot more crazy obstacles to overcome. In other words, players are racing to the finish line with unknown dangers ahead that they must traverse through no matter how crazy or dangerous they seem.
Coming back to the comparison to Happy Wheels, Guts and Glory could be said that it is the 3D version or at least an homage to the original. As a result, the game is very fun and addicting like the Happy Wheels but with more customization and depth to the wacky physics, Happy Wheels had.
Guts and Glory also features a level editor that gives player full control over making their funniest or deadliest levels which the community has already made more than 1,000 of. The base game also includes the original 70+ tracks by the developer to play. The title is definitely for hardcore level makers as well as casual players that enjoy a little trolling. With over 500 level editor items, there are so many possibilities for both playing and building levels.
My personal experience with the game has been quite a lot of fun. Although some minor issues occur with the controller/controls and optimization (due to the fact that sometimes people are just insane), the game is still a refreshing playthrough in between my competitive play of other games.
Speedrunners should also have fun with this game as it tests the quickness and attentive player to their limits every so often. And while to call this game a “go to” may be a stretch for me personally, it is definitely a breather and there will always be new levels to play as long as there are players to build them. Speaking of which, I am more of a player myself than a builder but the editor was still a blast as it caters to both the beginner and master builders out there. Whether you like driving a car or holding your son on the back while pedaling through thousands of spikes and traps, you’re bound to have some fun because there is nothing like exploding into the air after making one misclick to the left.
