It’s visually striking, earns its laughs, and gives plenty of reasons to re-explore both the living and dead sides of Penny Doewood’s little town. It might still lean a little heavily on its dialogue, but it never does so in a way that feels like it takes away from the game being played. You might just find Zoink’s latest to be worth dying for.
Flipping Death isn’t the grandest 2.5D experience you’ll play in 2018, but it does offer a fun account of the trials and tribulations of being both alive and dead. And with a fantastic cast of characters on hand to deliver quality and humorous dialogue, a laugh is never too far away. It's more than worth a look if you like what you see, just don’t expect anything too special.
If you can get past some of Flipping Death’s jank, you will find a hilarious comedy game to you’ll want to see through. It liked the visuals and characters so much that I always wanted to see what or who Flipping Death would have me processes or do next. If the idea sounds interesting to you or the art style catches your eye, you’ll likely enjoy the game. Others will probably be turned off by the glitches and platforming sections.
