The platforming physics in the game as cartoony as the game itself looks. You slip and slide around, and your friends will be doing the same. Whether you’re playing as a pillow or a top hat with arms and legs, you’ll be on roughly equal footing, although there are differences, in character size if nothing else.
Beyond characters, there’s a variety of game modes, too. If you’re so inclined, you can make some yourself. Although every mode is conceptually simple, there’s a lot to learn when you’ll be playing a different one every 20 seconds!
Well, no more. As of this writing, the game drops AI bots in to replace players who leave, and if the host leaves, the host changes to an existing player. Thus, losing a game you’re winning and the XP that comes with it is quite rare. It may be able to happen if all players leave except for you, but this didn’t occur in any of our testing.
Still, it bears noting that you must play online to gain XP. You can’t play locally with friends. We weren’t able to test if playing online with three other friends allows this, but it could go either way. On the one hand, the ability to play online with strangers is great: it lets you enjoy the game without three friends who also own it. On the other hand, the game is marketed as a party game, one that’ll shake your f riendships to their core. So that seems like the best way to play it. And if youc an’t gain XP that way… well, that seems a little odd.
