Degroid fron SnagBox Games is a new 2D single-screen precision platformer on PlayStation 4. Check our Degroid review!


Degroid from SnagBox Games is a new 2D single-screen precision platformer on PlayStation 4. Mad Doctor has trapped you, and he’s subjecting you to a cruel experiment. All you have to do is pass his obstacle course. Grab the key in each level, reach the exit, and then do it all over again in the next area. Simple, right? Except that he’s also placed a bunch of traps and enemies for you to avoid. And yes, a single hit is all it takes to defeat your character.

The controls are simple and to the point. You’ll control your character with the left analog stick or the D-Pad, jumping and double jumping by pressing the X button. The longer you press the button for, the higher your character’s jumps will be. You can reset a level by pressing the Triangle button. Once you’ve collected the key, you can move toward the exit so that you can open the door by pressing the Square button.


If you want to 100% the game, you’ll need to collect the special item in each of the 60 mainlevels that Degroid has to offer. Collecting at least 60 of them will reward you with unlocking the bonus secret levels that dial up the difficulty. And yes, unlocking the special levels and completing all of them will certainly be some of the requirements for adding a new Platinum trophy to your collection.

The trophy list includes 26 Bronze trophies, 7 Silver trophies, and 5 Gold trophies. You’ll get your first trophy after jumping for the first time. After that, trophies will pop after collecting your first item, defeating one enemy, complete the first level, and break your character apart. From there, you’ll get trophies by completing all levels in the game, as well as the three chapters, collect every special item, unlock the special levels, beat the special levels, jump 5,000 times in total, defeat 1,000 enemies in total, and die 1,000 times in total.


Degroid sets out to give us a budget 2D single-screen precision platformer with 60 levels to complete as you try to do everything as fast possible, and it definitely accomplishes this. I did run into a couple of issues. The physics would sometimes get a bit wonky, making my character run at a slower pace or making his jumps not reach their regular height or length. The music also sometimes would stop playing, which could only be fixed by closing the game and relaunching it. Degroid is out on PlayStation 4 with a $4.99 price tag.
