While I’ve seen quite a variety of takes on the classic adventure formula that has enjoyed a rejuvenation in this last generation with indie developers I’ve not seen something quite like Buck Bradley. Adopting a comic book style in presentation the net effect is something that feels somewhere between the classic adventure and an interactive graphic novel, albeit with a colorful and pretty goofy overall style. The issue I have is more with the somewhat cookie cutter nature of the challenges you’ll face and the story and dialogue that may be reasonably humorous but that fails to inspire a need to see what happens next. If you’re not a genre veteran it all may feel a bit less generic but for people who’ve played their fair share in the genre it will probably come off as being a bit flat.
