Furry Legends is originally launch on Nintendo DS via Wii Ware a digital download store of Nintendo and was released in 2011. This is one of the classic side-scrolling platformer game in Wii Ware, level designs are pleasantly intricate and boast the odd decent puzzle, but they feel cramped when shoved onto the Nintendo DS screen, and they tend to come with frame rate issues and endless opportunities to enjoy a cheap death. Worse yet, the control scheme is poorly implemented and prone to glitches: attacks have no force, stopping distance and jumping physics are both miserably unpredictable, and ledges often seem to have low invisible walls stuck in front of them, making simply moving from one part of a level to the next irritatingly hazardous.
Ultimately, Gamelion’s lackluster effort serves as a helpful case study for anybody interested in investigating why no-one’s ever made a successful platform game about a character with almost no body weight before. It turns out that characters with almost no bodyweight feel laggy to maneuvers and unsatisfying to nanny through long, complex levels filled with spike pits, swinging ropes, and rudimentary combat. Despite the obvious effort that’s gone into its creation, it all adds up to an adventure that is deeply flawed in both premise and execution – and a legend that is probably best left ignored.
Furry Legends is available on Nintendo DS via WiiWare, unfortunately it was removed in Google Play for some reason.
