Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion is a colorful game on PS4 inspired by the old-school The Legend of Zelda games. This one comes from Graffiti Games and Snoozy Kazoo, and it tells the tale of the titular Turnip Boy who must go on an epic quest. Why? Well, your journey begins when you receive a tax bill from the office of Mayor Onion. It seems that Turnip Boy owes a ton of property tax for his greenhouse, and he must cover the total, like, yesterday! Failure to do so will lead to Mayor Onion owning the deed to your house. The amount owed? A total of $143,753! Turnip Boy immediately rips up the tax bill… and that’s when Mayor Onion shows up to let him know that he’s now committed tax evasion!

Since tax evasion is a big no-no, Turnip Boy ends up having to work as Mayor Onion’s personal assistant to sort things out. His first task will be to head to the Bustling Barn by going through Layer Lane so that he can help take “care” of some animals that are in the way of the town hall that the Mayor wants to set up at Bustling Barn. You’ll need to bring him back a bag of fertilizer as proof, or else you’ll be sleeping with the rotten! So off you go to get rid of the creatures that are in the way of the Mayor’s plans.

After gaining control of Turnip Boy, you’ll move around with the left analog stick as you interact with objects or other characters with the X button. This button will also be used for making Turnip Boy trip, which means he’ll perform a short dash and then fall over. The first item you’ll find is a watering can that used to belong to Old Man Lemon. As expected, you can use it to water plants. You can use the watering can by pressing the Circle button, which you’ll be doing a lot for the rest of the game.


Once you obtain more items, you’ll be able to press the Square button and then use the L1 and R1 buttons to circle between them. Or you could also use the L1 and R1 buttons while exploring an area to swap between items! Your currently equipped item can then be used with the Circle button. What other items will you find during your time with Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion?

You’ll get a mighty Soil Sword early in the game, which you can then use to attack enemies and destroy bushes. You will also find a pair of Boomboots, which are useful for kicking Boomblooms to make things go boom as you open up new paths. The good news is that these are automatically equipped at all times, so you won’t need to switch to them over and over. You will also find Move Mittens, which can be used to push around Movemelons to solve puzzles… which is weird since Turnip Boy doesn’t have hands!

In good old-fashioned The Legend of Zelda style, after you defeat each of the bosses in the game, you’ll be rewarded with an extra heart. You’ll actually be rewarded with a Heart Plant that you’ll first need to water with your watering can so that a Heart Fruit can grow. Collect it, and you’ll gain an extra heart! There are also some extra Heart Plants you can find by thoroughly exploring each area so that you can obtain some additional hearts for Turnip Boy to survive through the many battles in his future.


There are plenty of other collectibles to find in this one, so you’ll need to interact with everyone and complete a bunch of quests to gain additional documents and hats for your collection. Documents will be added under the corresponding section. As for hats, you can view them in the hats tab from the pause menu and decide which one to equip! The first one you can get is the Sunhat, which you obtain by helping Blueberry water a flower so that you can then take it to Strawberry.

The devs want as many gamers as possible to enjoy their time with Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion, which is why they’ve added some accessibility options for those of you that might be having some trouble progressing through the game. By going into the options menu and then the game subsection, you can activate God Mode, which makes Turnip Boy completely invincible, as well as change the player strength multiplier as needed between the default x1 and the additional x2 and x3 options. And yes, if you’re a trophy hunter, you can certainly activate God Mode and boost Turnip Boy’s strength to speed things up.

Speaking of which, the game has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy, a list that is split into 22 Bronze trophies, 11 Silver trophies, and 4 Gold trophies. The first trophy will pop right after you rip up the tax bill you receive from Mayor Onion. After that, you’ll get a trophy for growing the Soil Sword and others for collecting some weapons. There’s even a trophy for collecting a trophy, which is just sitting out there in the open near the barn! But most of the trophies in the game will pop when you find a document and rip it up. Oh, and there are trophies for collecting your first hat and for finding all hats.


Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion is a colorful game that draws inspiration from the beloved The Legend of Zelda franchise, particularly from the first game on the Nintendo Entertainment System and from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. You’ll start without any items on you, but you’ll soon find a watering can that will be by your side until the end as you water a variety of plants that will aid you on your quest, starting with the one that will grow a Soil Sword!

If you want to 100% this one, then a big chunk of your time will be spent completing a bunch of fetch quests. You will need to go find an item for one character or receive an item from one character and then go and take that item to another character who is in another area. If you don’t like fetch quests, then you’re not going to enjoy getting a new Platinum from Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion. And along with the main game, the game on PlayStation 4 also includes the Limitless Line DLC at no extra cost! This DLC can be accessed after you complete the game, and it will allow you to have a roguelike experience through a randomly generated dungeon as you move from car to car on the train that departs from Sunset Station. Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion is available with a $14.99 asking price.
