I’ll give credit where it is due, while action platforming doesn’t often change things up too much Adventures of Chris creatively throws some curveballs at you in order to try to keep things a little more fresh. The somewhat unassuming and pudgy Chris, through a series of weird events, finds himself imbued with the power to float initially (how gets weird, you’ll just need to check it out for yourself) and from that base is determined to go on an epic adventure and turn himself into a full-fledged hero. The game really does try to keep changing up the style of play, sometimes favoring more action and other times some creative puzzles and platforming, so that’s a plus. Even so, at times I felt like the enemy was more the not-quite-tight-enough controls which are just muddy enough that intense situations feel a little tougher than they should be. Throw in what feels like a lot of pretty juvenile humor about Chris’s weight that feels at least a decade out of place and it’s a mixed bag. This adventure has its ups and downs (with plenty of inverted action to prove it) but if you’re looking for a unique challenge it may be a good fit for you.
