What is The End Is Nigh about?
The End Is Nigh is a sprawling adventure platformer where the player takes control over Ash, one of few "things" that have "survived" the "end of the world".
Follow Ash as he flops his way through a future of pain and suffering. Feel his stress levels rise as you throw him into an endless swarm of decaying, mutant animal-like creatures and help aid his final epic quest... to simply make a friend (out of pieces of people he finds along his journey).
Oh, also you collect video game cartridges and tumors! if that does anything for ya.
Another game McMillen was involved in. It comes close to Super Meat Boy in quality, but in my opinion it's not quite as good as SMB. You play a blob that is the last survivor. His last video game tape breaks down and now he sets off to collect tumors and body parts to build himself a friend. The humor is typically McMillen as known from SMB and BOI. The mechanics are different from Meat Boy. You have here some different game mechanics that justify the game as an independent game. At the time of this review there is no German voice output. I had no problem understanding the few sentences in the game with my school English. The graphic style is typical McMillen, but often a bit too monotonous for my taste. The soundtrack is good. Not DannyB (Super Meat Boy, Binding of Isaac) good but good. So far I could not find anything negative about the controls. Precise and reliable. As in SMB, you can find retro-level. In the game are the video game tapes you can play in your home. How you would expect it from a McMillen game is the difficulty quite high with a ferry learning curve. As with SMB, the individual sections are very short. So you never get thrown back too far after dying.
