Awesome Pea 2 | Mini Review

What is it?

Awesome Pea 2 is a side-scroller platformer by Pigeon Dev. The player must guide a bouncy pea through a series of hazard-filled levels in order to reach the goal.

Platform(s)

PC, Xbox One, PS4, Switch

Pros
Cons
Visuals and predominantly green colour scheme are reminiscent of the Game Boy.
Simple controls.
A good challenge all the way through.
Decent chiptune soundtrack.
Can instantly restart with a press of the button.
Gameplay barely develops as you progress; feels pretty shallow throughout.
Not a lot of replay value once you beat the game.
Collecting all the coins is pointless and unrewarding.
Could’ve done with a time attack mode.
No plotlines, backstories, cutscenes or the like.

Verdict:

Awesome Pea 2 ain’t anything too fanciful, and doesn’t really mess around with any original or unique ideas of its own. It simply gets straight to-the-point: you want a tricky platformer? You got it. Sadly, it fails to deliver a satisfying experience. It’s like a bargain bin-brand mushy peas: bland and flavourless.
