Cyanide & Happiness – Freakpocalypse – Gameplay Review

Reviews

One of the fun and entertaining webcomic series that you can read today is Cyanide and Happiness. It’s a series that has been running since 2005, which shows that many people love it and continue to patronize it. The series’ popularity even prompted a video game back in 2018, which didn’t do well. But now, another video game about the webcomic series has been created.

But instead of a battle royale game, this new one is an adventure game set in the comic’s universe. The new game is called Cyanide & Happiness – Freakpocalypse, and you play an unpopular ginger-headed orphan. But is this game way better than the previous adaptation? Or is it something that’s also just full of hype but fails to deliver on expectations? Let’s find out in this gameplay review of Cyanide & Happiness – Freakpocalypse.

The Gameplay of Cyanide & Happiness – Freakpocalypse

The Cyanide & Happiness – Freakpocalypse is a point-and-click adventure game where you follow the story of Coop, a loser kid who’s tasked to save the world. At least that’s what you will think when you play initially, but it seems only to be an intro and a tutorial to the gameplay. Everything was just an imagination of Coop McCarthy. In reality, his life is the exact opposite, and you get to live it in this game.

As a point-and-click game, you interact with the environment and people through the loser senior high school kid. He will usually have something to say about things that you can interact with. The funny thing is that the game will also be full of humour, Cyanide & Happiness style. Of course, you won’t just absently wander as there are also chores and tasks that you need to do. There are also puzzles in the game, requiring you to find specific items to move or progress forward.

Other characters you interact with will also have something witty or funny to say. It’s a game that’s going to provide you with many laughs.

It Feels Like A Cyanide & Happiness Game

Simple Interactive Game

The gameplay is also simple, as you hover the mouse and see if there’s a green question mark on it. This indicates you can interact with the object. You will have choices as to what Coop can do.

What’sWhat’s Bad About Cyanide & Happiness – Freakpocalypse

Now that you know why trying out the game would be best, you might also want to consider its bad points. Of course, playing games might be complicated at first, but not until you learn the basics of it. Apart from it, knowing the do’s and don’ts can undoubtedly help you decide if it’s worth trying for.

Puzzles Are A Bit Too Basic

Though there will be puzzles, it’s not something that you will get stuck on. Most of them are basic and easy to solve, making the game a bit boring to play at times. At first, you’re like, okay, this is fun and simple. But as you progress further, it doesn’t get challenging, which can quickly get many players bored or uninterested in a game.

Lack of Auto-Save

This game also doesn’t have an auto-save, which can be a bit of an annoyance. Since this is a short game (something you can finish in 2-5 hours), there might be some side quests or incomplete tasks. Thus, this can make you feel and wish to go back to complete them. But unless you saved it at that particular point, you won’t be able to go back to it. Since it’s a short game, you could play it again if you want.

Verdict (3.8/5)

The Cyanide & Happiness – Freakpocalypse is a fun and entertaining adventure game. You can see and feel that you are playing a game based on the popular webcomic with the background, characters, and humour on the set. It’s a game that can provide laughs, especially if you’re a fan of the webcomic. Of course, some things can be improved upon, like the puzzles should be more challenging. But other than that, this is a good game that’s worth trying out.

The gameplay is also simple, as you hover the mouse and see if there’s a green question mark on it. This indicates you can interact with the object. You will have choices as to what Coop can do. He can describe it, touch it, or talk to it. It’s a fun game that provides you with many things to do and interact with.
