Nachocado is why the YMMV rating exists. I detested this game, but its a good, well made game, so you might like it if you try it. Anyways, the evil nachos want to turn avocados into guacamole. You play as two halves of an avocado, each one side of the screen. You bounce the seed between the two sides, taking out of the nachos in between. Each half is controlled by the corresponding stick and button. So, the left side moves with the left stick, and launches the seed with LB. The right with the right stick and LB. In between are platforms and breakable blocks, plus the nachos. Destroy all nachos to move on to the next screen.

Honestly, Nachocado plays like Pong, where you are controlling both sides. I, for the life of me, cannot get used to the used to dual controls. Maybe its my hand-eye coordination, but i kept losing because the seed kept shooting off screen. That does not mean the game is bad. No, I think the game is good, very good, I just hate the damn controls. But somebody else might get the hang of this and love it.

For those who end up liking Nachocado, there are two modes, first being a sizable story mode made up of levels. The latter is an endless mode unlocked after story mode is completed. As I said above, this is a good game, I just don’t like it. But that’s me. You go play it if you’re interested. You’ll probably like it more than I did.

Overall: Nachocado is a good game that I didn’t like because of the controls. However, you might truly love it!

Verdict: YMMV
