Spider-Man Plus Rabbits Equals UsagiMan [Review]


Usagiman 4

Touchscreens and platformers just don’t mix most of the time. Lots of developers try to make platformers for mobile devices, of course, and will continue to as long as our collective nostalgia for Mega Man and Super Mario Bros. remains.

UsagiMan is a rabbit-shaped hero bounding through levels overflowing with high ledges and murderbots.

Players can also attack enemies by furiously tapping them, which sends the hook out in rapid bursts.
