Luckys Tale Game Review

Lucky’s Tale is a 3D VR platformer that is compatible with the Oculus Rift. This game is about a fox named Lucky who pretty much runs, jumps and spins his way through 14 colorful worlds. There are various challenges you’ll have to face when going through each level. The challenges are more whacky fun than anything else. This game is very child friendly as well.

Lucky’s Tale is a pretty good game for kids that lots of them would enjoy. When it comes down to looking into the details of the game it isn’t that great. The 14 levels would maybe take an hour and a half to complete. There are different modes to play in though so it will probably make things last longer. Lucky’s Tale does bring back some sort of N64 feeling though and that’s definitely one thing that’s great, it’s something older players would appreciate because a lot of older gamers grew up playing N64 and it’ll give them a feeling of happy nostalgia.

There’s a few downsides about Lucky’s Tale though, but I don’t really think it’s the games fault, it’s more of the way it is formatted with the Oculus Rift. The camera angle of this game when played with the Oculus Rift isn’t too great. There’s a lot of head turning and adjustments the players have to make. Sometimes the game camera auto-scrolls and leaves the player with no control which will really leave players feeling dizzy.

The levels in Lucky’s Tale are original and colorful. It’s very pleasing to the eyes and its very cartoony. There are coins that can be collected throughout gameplay and it really feels like you’re playing a modern version of an N64 game. There’s some good detail added into the levels. The good detail makes the game even more pleasing.

Lucky’s Tale would be a better game if the camera for the Oculus Rift was a little better. The game itself is good. It offers some great graphics and a nostalgic older game feeling. This game falls though when it comes to the camera and it pretty much ruins most of the game. Lucky’s Tale was rated 6/10 by IGN.
