Pro Gymnast Simulator Switch Review
A guy named Walaber was a gymnast(I think). He was also a game developer too. So he developed a game called Pro Gymnast Simulator… and I don’t like it. Why don’t I like it? Because things you do in other games with ease, such as swing around a pole and fling yourself becomes an exercise in extreme frustration.
L stick controls your arms, R controls your legs. To swing hold L and R past center for a bit, then release to build up speed. Then at the apex, release. Then hold R up and L down and ZR to bring your knees in to tuck during flight, then release to stick the landing.
Apparently, this is true to life physics wise. Thinking over the gymnastics I’ve watched TV, I can see that for sure. So, that’s great and all. The problem is, the controls are clunky and not intuitive. For example remember I have to hold three buttons to tuck. Or why do I go flying one swing, but not another? I’m not sure. It’s not explained.
I mean yeah, a lot of work was put into this game. You can tell it was a passion project. I’m just not sure what came out the other side can be classified as fun. I mean, if you can get used to the controls and the physics, you may have lots fun with this. There’s even a level creation feature!
Overall: I’m not an athlete and you have to be a gaming athlete to have fun with this.
P.S. Try Parkour Jump Adventure
