Quoi de mieux pour sa pause café ?

ToeJam & Earl is not a new game, the first two episodes were previously published on the Sega Megadrive in the early 90s. And this Back in the Groove is developed by Humanature Studio, edited by Adult Swin Games and is published through funding Kickstarter successful. So is he new or is he new with old?

Back to the sources

First, the game is a continuation of these episodes having been successful almost thirty years ago. We meet our friends with girlfriends who will make the "binge" in space. And as of course, they will have an accident and crash.


This is the moment when we discover a game in 3D isometric view, as in the first episode, so we are in known terrain.

Purpose of the game and fog of war

One thing is certain, the objective of the game is not complicated, you have to recover the ten pieces of your spaceship. And these were scattered in the levels because of the accident. So you have to go through all the levels to find these pieces.

But if you see the whole map, it's too easy. So, the latter is not immediately visible, except where the hero is, because a fog of war prevents the vision of the entire level.

To see more of the card or its entirety, one must find red phones or get some by gifts. Like what happiness is simple as a phone call.

Gameplay, between pleasure and annoyance

ToeJam & Earl may seem a little oldschool and old. But after taking in hand one of our heroes, we begin to feel the groove of the music in us. Thus, we avoid the enemies and we learn to recognize them from those who are kind.

Let's talk a littleWe can also chat with NPCs

For information, friends are the sage, the sushi seller and some other characters "whips". However, enemies are more annoying, but what can be annoying at times.

So, they push ToeJam out of the map into the water or the void. If it's empty, it's the fall to the previous level and we'll have to find an elevator to go up. Otherwise, it's a life they take away unless the food comes to Earl or ToeJam.

Dodge art in all its forms

On the other hand, a good way to survive is to trace one's path and to dodge the toxic characters one encounters. But there are not thirty-six solutions, one must test if an NPC is positive or negative. For example, the Vahiné is sexy, she dances and waves her body. In addition, she has a little cry if it is not an Aloha.

So, she is not negative in doing you harm and sometimes helps your enemies our character is blocked.</p><div class='code-block code-block-4' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'><div data-ad=

Finally, the enemies are quite easily recognizable at first sight. For example, a guy running like crazy with a drill in his hand. But also the inquisitor returns in the previous level, bastard. Or a whirlwind leads the hero, as well as laying hen laying eggs. In short, we are disoriented with such a bestiary.

Christmas before time

Finally, one of the other concepts of the game is to have gifts, which can help the hero in his quest for an object. Of course, an inventory is available and the effects can be positive or negative. Once again, you have to know the objects by appropriating the world of ToeJam & Earl.

Hidden passageBonuses and gifts

Similarly, it is essential to properly manage his gifts and not to keep too much. After, a gift gives abilities to the hero, but can give to one of your enemies. This is like shooting a ball in the foot for the player.

Mini-games in the back doors

So when you cross a starry door, we find ourselves in a 2D platform runner. At times, you have to curl to avoid an exit or cross a retarder post. Otherwise it is much more useful to run upright to collect bonuses and other points.

The extraterrestrials are our friends

So the game can be done with one of 9 characters, two of them hidden. Namely, there are two versions of our ToeJam and Earl heroes. To conclude, this ToeJam & Earl is fun, we are surprised to take pleasure again with these fanatics. But after a few hours and have rinsed the game, it becomes a bit of a refrain.

So, it's rather average, because a few more finds or mini-games could have made this episode, a cult episode. Here is a good game, fun and groove are present, but it does not go away. ToeJam and Earl are back to the past.

ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove is available at 17.49 € on the Nintendo eShop
