Available On PC – a code was very kindly supplied for the purpose of this review.
In this fast-paced, puzzle-loaded action adventure, you’ll juggle housework, zombie hordes, family dinners and radioactive squirrels! Oh, and you have to prevent the end of the world while keeping everyone from finding out it was all your fault.
If you love action adventure games with that retro look and feel to it then look no further than Mayhem in Single Valley, a retro styled puzzler, action adventure zombie game that is literally bursting at the seams with gameplay action.
I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing a few games published by tinyBuild and they don’t seem to publish dead ducks and Mayhem to be fair is definitely another great title to add to their list.
You play as Jack, a young lad who is leaving Single Valley to start a new chapter in his life, that is until a mysterious chemical spillage turns the towns animals crazy and turning the locals into Zombies, don’t you just hate it when that happens?? What ensues is a game full of twists and turns heavily story driven.
Controls are pretty simple to get used to and the overall feel of the game will definitely appeal to those older gamers (yes that would be me). The game is certainly big enough to keep you going and entertained for a good while. The different challenges you cone across aren’t overly difficult and fun to work through.
Graphics and Sound
With Mayhem the devs have gone with a retro pixilated look and it looks fantastic definitely getting me in the nostalgic feels, the game world will definitely appeal to retro gamers and newbies alike with its vibrant colours and styling it really feels like a clean game.
For the soundtrack they have gone with music taken straight from the golden age of gaming right back to the early nineties. The in game sound effects are great, there is no realism here and to be fair it doesn’t need it.
To summarise my thoughts then of Mayhem In Single Valley, a great nostalgic action adventure game with plenty on offer to keep you going. Definitely worth looking at if you are after a nostalgic fix or looking for something different it’s all here.
Verdict-Out of 5🌟
I give Mayhem In Single Valley a solid 4🌟 another great game fro. The tinyBuild stable.
