Games on Steam can come in all shapes and sizes and genres. Sometimes, you can just tell a game crew was having fun when they were making a title. This is the case with Toricky, a 2D Platform-Adventure game that’s available for purchase on Steam.
Toricky and Momo are two explorative birds who are always seeking out their next big adventure. But, upon following the request of a seemingly friendly creature, the two birds arrive at a Legendary Palace where “Crystars,” jewels embedded with a mysterious power, were once enshrined. This Legendary Palace, which should be beaming with life and the hum of its inhabitants, has been turned into a variable ghost town. What happened here? Where could the inhabitants that filled this place have gone?
To uncover the answers to these questions and more, Toricky and his feathered partner Momo must embark on a great adventure where they will have to solve numerous puzzles, avoid dangerous traps, fight terrible pirates,and save a mystical princess.
The game emphasizes exploration, as you have a big world to unlock the mysteries of. There’s giant fortress surrounded by psychedelic mushrooms, and diving into heavenly waters infested with wacky piranhas. As Toricky, you’ll use your flying ability to observe everywhere that the Crystal Palace has to offer you. There are 7 Zones in all, and if done right? Can easily take 30+ hours to get everything that’s in them.
That’s not to say the game doesn’t have action, just the opposite, there are pirates who have taken over, and using your immense strength, you’ll have to use the world around you to fight them off. This includes massive boss battles that will fill up the entire screen.
So, if you’re up for a fun old-school adventure, you might want to try out Toricky on Steam.
