Bang-On Balls: Chronicles Review

Bang-On Balls: Chronicles is an indie gem that has taken the gaming world by surprise. Developed by Exit Plan Games, this quirky and inventive title brings a refreshing spin to the action-adventure genre. With its unique premise and addictive gameplay, it's a must-try for gamers looking for something different.

Okay, so picture this: you're controlling a round character, basically a ball, rolling through some of the wackiest and imaginative worlds you've ever seen. Bang-On Balls: Chronicles dishes out a mix of platforming, brain-teasing puzzles, and epic battles. Yeah, it might take a few rounds to get used to steering your spherical hero, but once you do, it's a rollercoaster of fun. Plus, the power-ups and abilities keep things spicy, so you're never bored.

The story? Oh boy, it's more about the giggles than deep plot twists. But trust me, you won't mind. The humor is on point, and the quirky characters will keep a smile plastered on your face throughout.

This game's got replayability for days. Besides the main story, there are challenges, mini-games, and secret goodies to uncover. And don't even get me started on the multiplayer – local and online. It's a riot playing with buddies or facing off against players from across the globe. The competitive and co-op modes make this game the gift that keeps on giving.

Visually, this game's a stunner. The art style is all colorful and cartoony, matching the game's lighthearted vibe perfectly. From lush forests to ancient ruins, you'll be exploring some seriously cool landscapes. The characters, even though they're balls, have this charming appeal. But beware – the camera angles can be a bit of a hassle at times.

Now, here's where it gets a bit meh. The sound effects are fun and all, adding to the whimsical vibe, but the music can be a bit of a broken record after a while. Some more variety in the soundtrack would've been a game-changer.

So there you have it, folks – Bang-On Balls: Chronicles is a riot of a game. It might not be as flashy as those big-budget titles, but it's got heart and creativity in spades. If you're up for a unique and wildly entertaining adventure, do yourself a favor and grab this game. You won't regret it! Thanks for reading.

The game was reviewed on a PS5 (via BC) using a promo code provided by PR. Bang-On Balls: Chronicles is out now on PlayStation PC, Xbox and Switch.
