Cosmic Boll (Prototype) – A Sonic-Inspired Beat ‘Em Up Platformer

Game Review

Comic Boll is a game that’ll instantly remind you of Sonic.

It’s a game where you need to race through the levels as a small ball that has the ability to beat up enemies, yet rolls around through the levels like Sonic. It’s like if Sonic were a beat ’em up game, but Comic Boll goes further because it combines gameplay elements from games like Astro Boy Omega Factor from the GBA era. It’s hard to explain. Just play it.

The developer says the game is a remake a previous title called Bolinha, which was made back in 2006 based on some previous comic work.

So, as you roll around, there are a ton of enemies to fight and you’ll have to be careful as you roll around because the game is pretty tough. You have limited HP and you can roll, punch, combo, and even dodge bullets in real time. there are also plenty of special items that give you buffs. If you’ve played any retro platformer (that was go0d), Cosmic Boll plays similarly. The work in this game shows.

Comic Boll is a unique game with its cheery visuals and gameplay that makes you feel like you’re playing something from the N64 days. Try out this happy little platformer.
