In the puzzle platform game “The Pedestrian” players have to steer a matchstick figure though a world of traffic signs while solving numerous puzzles along the way. And it’s certainly not easy.
The player has to jump between the sheet metal panels, climb and jump over obstacles, and figure out tricky mechanisms. Sometimes the stick figure ends up on the display of an electronic measuring device or a mobile game console and has to master a task there.
The gameplay is original and amusing, but also very challenging.
The correct combination of signs is particularly important because it’s only when they’re correctly “wired up” to each other that the little hero can dash to the next sign after successfully cracking a puzzle.
As well as that, the links between signs also determine whether the hero can take along items collected along the way.
Deleting the link between two signs can mean that the matchstick figure loses objects that may be be needed to solve another sign. So a lot of foresight is needed to succeed at this game.
”The Pedestrian” is available for PCs, the Nintendo Switch, the Playstation 4, the PlayStation 5, the Xbox One and the Xbox Series. It costs around US$20 (RM80.50). – dpa
