Review: Floor Kids (PC)
Nintendo Switch (Dec 7, 2017), Steam (May 16, 2018), PS4 (coming soon), XBOX One (coming soon)
Overall the gameplay is fairly unique in the way you control your character, and time the moves with the rhythm and beat. Every character has a set list of moves with some added poses, and positions to end up in to score extra points. The one downside to the gameplay itself is that it is very repetitive, and even though you have different characters to choose from, one is really not much better than the other. The only advantage with other characters is that they could provide a particular type of skill set that may get you an extra few points within a particular category. Online and Local Multiplayer adds some fun to game, as the single player side of the house can be pretty boring overtime.
The graphics (Stylized hand-drawn animations by JonJon) in Floor Kids is the one really good thing it has going for it. With unique hand drawn characters, environments, etc. You can tell there was a ton of hard work put into it, and the hard work pays off.
Floor Kids is a new breakdance battle game featuring unique freestyle gameplay, rhythm challenges, and multiplayer sessions. Discover stylized hand-drawn graphics by award-winning animator JonJon set to an original soundtrack by world-renowned scratch DJ/producer Kid Koala. Innovative controls allow you the freedom to play the way you like with a dynamic scoring system that rewards your moves based on musicality, originality, and style. Build up your crew of bboys and bgirls, unlocking new characters and locations as you cross the city, busting hundreds of different moves and countless combinations on your journey from the corner to the club. Bring Your Skills. Build Your Crew. Find Your Style.
Overall, the replay value is unfortunate. The total gameplay hours is pretty short finishing up in a few hours. While there are a lot of combinations to figure out, there are only about 16 moves each for the 8 total characters there are to unlock. The ability to have local and Multiplayer helps a little, but in the end you are looking at a game that will get you a few hours of entertainment value for the cost of about $20 on steam.
