Unhappy Racoon is a brand new 3D action roguelike game from XD Games and Big-Cat Studio. The developers announced that open-beta test starts tomorrow (8th October), but you can download it right now on Android from another source.
Unhappy Racoon Gameplay
I tested the game and it looks and handles great. There are minor slowdowns when a lot is going on, but nothing game breaking. Graphics are cartoony with nice colors and animations. Controls are precise and they cause no problem navigating through the room-like levels.
At the beginning you only have two heroes to choose from. One is ranged and the other one is melee. However, this is only the introduction as the developers promise a full line-up of pretty much anything imaginable. Needless to say, each hero plays differently and has its own skill set. One thing that unites them all is the dodge button. You need to learn how to use it, or bosses will happily make a pancake out of you.
Unhappy Racoon is a singleplayer game (at least for now), but you do get your own mini-team of racoons. They follow you around, you can upgrade them and your chemistry with each depends on the choices you make along the way. Since this is a rouguelike game, each level grants you different equipment and skills that you can tailor to your liking. Well, that depends on your luck I guess, but choices do matter and there are a lot of them.
There are a LOT of skills to choose from, but they do require diamonds and other currencies that you can gather while playing. Except for the story missions, there are events where you stand your ground against the oncoming enemies. This seems to be a work in progress as only one such event is currently available.
Where to get it?
The game is free with in-app purchases. Although the developers announced that the official open-beta test starts tomorrow, you can download the game right now from TapTap. And that’s the global version too. If you don’t trust 3rd party stores, you must wait just a little bit more and you can download it from the Play Store or the official Apple App Store if you are on iOS.
The game requires around 650MB of storage space (for now).
