Chester Desura Review

Chester is a great 2D platformer done in an art style that for better or worse looks like it is hand drawn. Sometimes the backgrounds can be too busy, but every level is a feast for the eyes with different lands in different styles, there is always something fresh going on. Chester is a challenging and yet forgiving game. You are forced to beat the clock with falling platforms and destructible walls, yet if you fall into a pit you’ll literally bounce out of the pit once or twice. You can also wall jump and double jump for some extra mobility. There are solid 2D mechanics and some good gameplay twists, such as green projectiles only hurt red objects and red only hurts blue that makes me think the developers were either geniuses or crazy. There’s a lot of depth here and surprisingly worth your time to play if you like 2D platforming.
