Considering the low-budget pricing for this simple stealth title, keep your expectations in check
When the asking price for a game starts out at less than $5 you don’t necessarily come in with high expectations, but the results can typically vary wildly. The good news with Melonizard is that for what its humble ambitions are, it plays reasonably well. It’s really just a stealth game that will require you to make effective use of cover and a feel for timing to evade detection and grab the piece of fruit that will let you move on to the next level. Aside from the odd new element like planks to help complete a bridge, which makes your journey a bit more drawn out, it really doesn’t significantly evolve, only make you work a bit harder. If you’re a big stealth fan you may enjoy this pretty simple and pure version of that gameplay, but obviously if that isn’t your thing the limited scope of the game will likely have no appeal.
