Octodad: Dadliest Catch

Octodad is a PS4 indie game that can be picked up on the play station store for £11.99. Is it the smash indie game we’ve been waiting for?

Octodad’s wayward arms are the place the amusement’s enchantment is. The PS4′s correct stick controls Octodad’s correct arm, while the L2 and R2 shoulder catches deal with his legs and helps handle the course of his developments (on the other hand you can utilize the PS MOVE). You navigate your way around different levels with these fundamental controls being key to your progression (bar a few mini games). They are very difficult to get the hang of initially – of course, all that’s done on purpose, in order to create some hilarious moments in game (completely rearranging the furniture in a room accidentally for an example), however the game mellows out in the later stages of a relatively short story, which might put some people off the game, but let me assure you, this is a fully enjoyable experience from start to finish.

From the family of Octodad being completely oblivious to Octodad true identity and species, and a wonderful cast of other strange and wonderful characters, it truly tells charming tale. The entire look of the game is pot on, and I couldn’t fault it in anyway. The frame-rate does drop occasionally, which is definitely strange for a next gen game to have a problem with. The audio however is again faultless, and I experienced no problems whilst the game hummed its great soundtrack.

Overall, whilst the game could be admittedly longer, Its still worth its questionably large price tag for the hours of fun and re playability with mini games available. Not only this, but the game offers four player multi player with each player controlling a tentacle of Octodad, such fun!
