[Beyond PlayStation] Hardway Party Review
Hardway Party is a boxy fast-paced game in which you need to build road sections to connect islands. Learn more in our Hardway Party review!
In Hardaway Party, the gameplay mechanics are simple and to the point. All you need to do is build highway sections so that a car can travel from island to island. To accomplish this, all you have to do is press the L or R buttons to build a section of road from the left side or the right side. This is important because sometimes there might be an obstacle, such as a lighthouse, that wonâ€™t allow you to build from one side or the other, and if you donâ€™t pay attention the road will crash into said obstacle, and you will get a game over.
There are 52 stamps to collect in the game if you can complete the different sets of challenges, and each set of these challenges is tied to a particular car. For example, one set asks that you score 15, pass an obstacle and have a total score of 40. Another one asks that you collect three coins, build ten sections from the right, and have a total score of 60. There are also objectives for building from the left side and for reaching specific worlds, so if you want to 100% the game, you have plenty to do.
You also have different missions to complete, and the better you do in them, the better the trophy you will get. For example, for the Pizza Boy mission you will, of course, be delivering pizza, and if you can deliver 10, you will get a bronze trophy. Deliver 25 pizzas, and that trophy becomes a silver trophy. And what if you manage to deliver 50 pizzas? Then youâ€™re getting a shiny gold trophy! Each trophy type counts as one unit, and if you can get all three trophies for each challenge, you will unlock a new car for your collection.
Hardway party is fun, bite-sized arcade-style colorful experience on Nintendo Switch available for a budget $1.99. Youâ€™re definitely getting more than enough fun to justify the gameâ€™s asking price, and if youâ€™re the type of gamer that likes to 100% games, then youâ€™re going be spending some considerable time with this one in order to unlock all 52 in-game stamps. Can you make it?
