  • One unfortunate side effect of checking out so many multiplayer indie titles on the console is that a large portion of them honestly begin to blend together in a variety of ways, perhaps visually distinguishable in some fashion but sharing enough DNA that they instantly feel all too familiar. Unfortunately FuzzBall falls into this category, with base gameplay revolving around you controlling your cute animal who can ball up and then dodge and attack their enemies in a few different ways in hopes of knocking out the opposition. While the specifics may be unique in some way to the game the principles are overused and with the controls being on the loose side this title suffers a bit with comparison. It tries to compensate by adding in some variations like mini games that can interrupt the action but these aren’t often much more than minor variations or will use a challenge like jumping between platforms which, with the camera’s fixed position and angle, proves to be pretty excruciating if you’re hoping to be accurate. There’s no doubt room for enjoyment, especially if you’re pairing up with younger or less experienced players, but there’s a solid handful of other similar titles to choose from so it’s a crapshoot which you may prefer based on tastes and perhaps the aesthetics you like the best.
