Potatoman Seeks The Troof is a brutal platform game in the same vein as Meat Boy, but even harsher. Potatoman Seeks The Troof has difficult obstacles, limited lives, and a psychedelic presentation. Even at only five levels it will take a glutton for punishment to complete this short game.

The world of Potatoman Seeks The Troof is drawn in 4-bit pixels, but don’t expect it to be stable as an old console game. As you move forward the screen will blur and dissolve in a substance addled haze. At times this could make you wonder if something is wrong with your PC or in-game settings, but soon you’ll be accustomed to Potatoman Seeks The Troof’s jarring visual design. Not only does the environment distort, but the camera will often tilt and spin in unexpected ways. This isn’t just limited to when you’re grounded and prepared: in some cases you may have to dodge a speeding car or rolling rock before either it or you is in frame.

Potatoman Seeks The Troof is unforgiving and often punishes you for going at the wrong pace. At times this can mean you either need to slow down and assess the situation or race passed everything. You won’t realize which one until you’ve died several times and completely restarted the level. Often times you’ll need to get right in the face of danger to understand how an enemy behaves. Potatoman Seeks The Troof promotes trial and error until you’ve memorized how to complete a level flawlessly.

You have no life meter; in Potatoman Seeks The Troof taking a single hit will instantly kill you. You also have no way of defending yourself: no punch, jump attack, or sort of weapons. The only way to survive is to jump over or dodge under the array of challenges in your way.

The obstacles you’ll encounter in Potatoman Seeks The Troof are incredibly varied. You will find yourself running under flying cacti, dodging streams of bats, and outflanking freeway traffic. However, two identical enemies will not always obey the same rules. You might find one egg that bursts open with birds, while another one feet away bounces frantically. You will always need to be on your toes to prevent another death.

Potatoman Seeks The Troof has fresh and challenging gameplay. It will mostly be frustratingly hard so be prepared.
