Bear Go Home - Free PC Game Review

Bear Go Home - Free PC Game Review - Free PC Gamers - Free PC GamesBear Go Home is a free platform puzzle game featuring visuals not unlike LocoRoco, Sony’s PSP game. However, that is where comparisons end. The Phoenix Seed production is aimed at casual gamers, presenting an easy challenge, but the core of the game lies on its charming universe, enemies and the levels our hero travels.

The player doesn’t have direct control over the small and cuddly bear, who just keeps on walking from left to right. Instead, using the mouse we must influence him to avoid foes, jump over obstacles and even fight a couple of bosses. But most of all, eat. Eat a lot. When the game ends – sadly, in less than an hour – the screen displays the amount of fruit eaten and enemies bashed, adding to the total points and screaming for another go.

The actions we can perform with the bear take some getting used to, but quickly we’ll grasp every move. By pulling his tail we make him catapult over pits, and dragging his abnormally large mouth we prepare him to eat the fruits that fall from the sky. We can also force him to jump (and double jump) by squishing the poor thing and give him some temporary boosts, like invulnerability (panda power!) or higher speed. An umbrella shields him from harm and a candle lights the way in the cave level.

The boss fights are equally inventive. The first one, with some sort of carnivorous plant thing requires us to... well, I won’t spoil it for you, but although extremely easy, it requires some attention to overcome. As for the other battle, it’s more action oriented than the previous one. Along with the fabulous art style, Phoenix Seed opted for a different kind of soundtrack. Children sing tales about the bear, something unlike we’re used to find in video games. It may sound weird at first but fits perfectly with the tone.There’s not much else to say about Bear Go Home besides ‘play it’. There’s nothing wrong with it, it’s charming and will bring asmile to your face. If only there was more of it...
