The Game Slush Pile

Pooplers Switch Review

I have a friend, lets called him Tom(not his real name). If I invite Tom over with the sole intention to play Pooplers, Tom would cease to be my friend. Why? Because Pooplers is a game where you’re a baby crawling around shitting paint everywhere. Yes, this is a Splatoon ripoff. I’ve never played any of the three games in that series, but I wager they’re all better than this. You pick your baby, pick a map, pick a time limit and go. You and your friends go crawling around a number of diverse maps shitting paint while getting power-ups and avoiding mom. If mom sees you, she will chase you, pick up and put you in your crib for a time out. While this is going on, you’ll hear a sound track of nonstop fart noises. The baby who pooped on the most percentage of the map wins. .

Pooplers Match

You might expect me to give Pooplers a Garbage rating. That’s the odd thing. I can’t. Pooplers itself isn’t really broken. All the mechanics seems work The maps are decently constructed. The power-ups work as intended.. The AI of the mom is decent enough. In single player matches, the baby AI isn’t bad either. Just the concept is insane. Do you really want to play a game where you play a baby pooping paint everywhere? If if you want to, I guess you can. I just know Tom, and tom would not be amused. But maybe your friends will love taking this for a spin. In that case, by all means, play Pooplers. I’m not just not going to bother.

Overall: Pooplers is a game where you and friends try to out poop each other. If that is your thing, go for it!

Verdict: YMMV

P.S. I’m not sure what else to recommend. So I’ll pull out of a hat…Tux And Fanny, an equally oddball game! Also. Try. Ord!

    Haven’t played this one, but I’ve heard of it. Now that you reminded me of it, I still think it will remain unplayed by me.
    But I hope Tom is enjoying himself!
