Gish

Filed under: Adventure & RPG, Other, Paid, WindowsNina S. @ 04:56

Gish was one of those games that I picked up without even thinking about it. It looked like it may be funny and I really wanted something different and what is more different then playing a game as a glob of goo? Yes, you heard me. I bought this game because you basically play as a big ball of sludge that doesn’t make any sense but is still awesome.

Now, while playing I wasn’t really expecting much but I did like the art style. Both the opening scene, which is actually crudely drawn but still manages to work, and the actual gameplay are fun and shiny. I liked the levels as they are all based around this seemingly underground world of green water and questionable sources. There are pipes and pockets of gross that make you happy and disgusted all at once. The game is riddled with awesome music and sleek movement which can be weird when you’re playing as a ball of slime but still works wonders in the long run. My only real complaint for this game isn’t even really a complaint as a warning for new players. It’ll take a while to get used to playing as Gish. At least it took me a little while, the slippery movement is flawless in design, meaning the physics make sense and once you’re comfortable with the jumps and squishing, it works, but still it’s a little daunting to start with.

As a side note, I loved the story for Gish. It’s a funny platform game but at the heart of it all, it’s a romance. Your entire point for fighting is to save your girlfriend!

This isn’t really a big selling point for a lot of people but I just wanted to mention that Gish also has a collection mode. That’s basically you just running around with your awesome Gish guy and collecting coins or whatever for the fun of it. These coins can be used for many things but mostly it’s just good, blind fun. Gish has a lot of that.

All in all, I think this is probably one of the best games I’ve played all year. Yes, the year is just starting, but that doesn’t make the statement any less credible. It’s funny, sweet, and just plan great, which I feel is really what gaming is all about in the end. I had a great time and was genuinely disappointed when I was done. That really says something.
