Do wyboru mamy trzy tryby trudności oraz istnieje możliwość gry w dwie osoby - w trybie współpracy. Lokacje zostały wykonane bardzo starannie, w oddali widać fruwające ptaki, płynący w dole statek, niekiedy przyjdzie nam przelecieć pod przewodami wysokiego napięcia. Tak więc grafika stoi na bardzo wysokim poziomie, podobnie jak oprawa dźwiękowa.

While not Wallace & Grombit, Platypus does provide you with an experience that you have not ever seen before. In addition to the graphics the sound is also quite memorable. I found the play control to be a little rough. I seemed to constantly be hitting ships inadvertently, and there were points of the game when I looked at the board and knew that no matter what I did, I would not survive. What I perceived to be difficult play control will likely not affect everyone the same way, and this game does come highly recommended due to graphics that are a very singular experience.

The game has a good, solid feel to it, and you'll find a number of fun-to-use power-ups during the course of your missions, which include a number of battles against big, heavily armed boss opponents. Through it all, the visuals of Platypus are the main attraction, since the whole world of the game looks like it's made of clay. Great little details abound, such as how bigger enemy ships gradually break apart as you shoot them, and you can even see their crews bail out by parachute. Platypus' lively soundtrack also never skips a beat as you play, helping solidify this as a great example of a classic arcade-style game for your PC.

You'll be blown away by the graphics but once the novelty of this has worn off you'll realize that Platypus plays like any other run-of-the-mill arcade shooter.

Чрезмерная сложность — пожалуй, единственный минус "Пупса". Наличие апгрейдов оружия нисколько не помогает. Их просто приятно подержать в руках, попробовать на врагах и... благополучно умереть через непродолжительный отрезок времени вместе со всей этой ботвой под нескончаемым неприятельским натиском. Мало того, по мере продвижения к заветной цели косяки вертлявых тарелок, несущие на себе всевозможные примочки, попадаются все реже. Осиливших сие чудо без использования инородных программ-взломщиков ждет приз — поездка в Мунголу и настоящий пластилиновый платипупс собственной персоной. Количество призов ограничено, торопитесь!

Platypus est un « shoot them up » aux graphismes loufoques et rafraîchissants dont le scénario reste classique. À tester absolument en mode multi-joueurs !
