About this game
Content Rating: Everyone10+
You are a nomadic slugcat, both predator and prey in a broken ecosystem. Intense, bone-crushing rains pound the surface and make life almost impossible for most of the year, but the dry season has just arrived. Grab your spear and brave the industrial wastes, hunting enough food to survive another hibernation cycle, but be wary— other, bigger creatures have the same plan... and slugcats look delicious.

The main appeal I saw in Rain World was in its art style and the design of its enemies. Its mechanics need some fine tuning for it to be the masterpiece it has the potential to be. If you’re looking for a game that’ll really try your patience and give you a good challenge, then I’d absolutely recommend adding this to your library. Otherwise, I’d recommend you look elsewhere.
If you're looking for a slightly different 2D platformer that provides a challenge then Rain World is a great fit for the modest price of $19.99. As a side note, the game does offer a Multiplayer Arena mode for up to 4 players, featuring Competitive and Sandbox modes. Unfortunately, I was unable to take part in this. It looks like this mode also allows you to select your “playing” field from environments seen in the single-player mode.
While I did enjoy Rain World for the art style and gameplay, I was bothered by the level design, to the point of boredom. While I don’t mind an open-world setting, I just wish that there was a clearer goal to where I was going. While I found myself coming up with clever tricks to get around obstacles, and enjoying the beautiful vistas, I just can’t see myself wanting to explore this world of torrential rain again any time soon.
