Welcome to our Whipseey and the Lost Atlas review PS4.
Whipseey and the Lost Atlas is a fantastic retro-style pixel art platformer, published by Blowfish Studios and masterfully created by Daniel A Ramirez.
Taking the role of a small boy upon discovering the Lost Atlas, not knowing and being pulled into its very pages. Upon arrival, the boy is quickly turned into a lovable pink balled character equipped with a handy whip.
Using your trusty whip you are to try and escape the pages; using it to attack foes, swing between gaps and even slowly descend in a helicopter like motion. Mixing with Whipseey’s classic jump attack you are well equipped to deal with the enemies and obstacles. Traversing across five beautifully made levels, backed by well suited intense pace setting music, keeping you on the edge of your seat. A huge variety of enemy types using differing attacks and unique boss encounters for the end of each stage, whom might I add make the most satisfying pop sound upon defeating them.
Progressively the game teaches you to use your abilities testing you in safer areas and gradually getting more challenging as the levels continue, combining mixtures of enemies and obstacles preparing you for the inevitable challenges ahead.
I for one was hugely impressed with Whipseey. Graphically speaking it sets off a sense of nostalgia, using a combination of smaller pixels to create characters, enemies, obstacles and story scenes. This allowing them to look complex and layered adding detail and personality. Whilst the background uses much larger pixels to help create a painted appearance giving focus on the characters and making your experience smoother. I only hope there is more to come. An instant pick up and play classic, bringing together some of the greatest aspects of retro platformers from the past. A colorful adventure I couldn’t put down.
My only criticism for this masterpiece is its length, Whipseey can, unfortunately, be completed within a few hours. Disappointed that it was over, I can now only replay and wait for more.
