The auto-runner and the brawler are two very different genres. One’s all about speed and reactions, the other’s about fluidity and violence. Mashing them together can pose some pretty difficult questions.
There have been games where it’s worked, like Punch Quest, but they’re the exception rather than the rule. Which brings us to Golem Rage, a new take on the idea that throws some extra bits and bobs into the mix.
And while it might not quite get things perfect, there’s definitely enough going on in this vaguely comedic pegging-it puncher that you’re going to enjoy the time you spend with it.
As you might be able to tell from the title, the game is about an angry golem. It’s not the smartest of creatures, but when its makers start picking on it, it decides the best course of action is to run away.
