Beeny from Diplodocus Games and Siactro is a 2D platformer with a retro look. It offers a 1990s pre-rendered look that reminded me of the Donkey Kong Country series on the Super Nintendo Entertainment – a.k.a. the SNES. The game has 9 levels in which you’ll be trying to get to the top to grab some delicious honey. It serves as a prelude of sorts to Super Kiwi 64, which I also got a chance to review on Nintendo Switch. You’ll have to help your bird friend, who needs the honey to use as glue to complete the raft that he’s building.
You’ll be controlling the titular character with the left analog stick or the D-Pad as it rolls around each area and jumps with the B buttons. If you want to reset a level so that you can aim to improve your time total. If you make a mistake and fall down in a stage, you won’t need to climb back for too long, because a trio of just-as-round bees will catch you. This makes the game easier to get into for gamers of all skill levels.
Beeny is a 2D retro-styled vertical platformer with a look that will remind you of the Donkey Kong Country series on the SNES. It’s a short game that you can complete in 30 minutes or so, and it’s available on Nintendo Switch at a low price of only $0.99. Oh, and when you beat it you’ll get to play a level of Super Kiwi 64 as your reward! Complete that, and you’ll be able to take on the Beeny levels again as you try to get all of the time medals, along with a bonus seasonal level! Complete all levels again and get all time medals and you’ll unlock Toree from the 3D platforming series. Toree can double jump, which changes how you approach each level.
