My Friend Pedro Review

Graphics

My Friend Pedro Review
The graphics are aesthetically pleasing!

I thought the graphics were cute. There’s not too much to the background but I liked the main character and how the obstacles looked in general. It’s a pretty aesthetically pleasing game as a whole!

Music & Sounds

The audio is very techno and upbeat which fits in pretty well with the shooting and sneaking around you have to do to complete the levels. It’s quite repetitive but definitely adds to the gameplay, so I wouldn’t get rid of it!

The characters make noises that sound like Tamagotchi’s when they talk, so you do have to read the subtitles but it’s fine because it’s cute!

Controls

My Friend Pedro Review
Drag in the opposite direction to jump!

There are two sections at the bottom of the screen and in either of those sections, you have to drag in the opposite direction to jump or roll. It’s pretty difficult to get used to at first, as I was constantly going in the wrong direction but once you’re used to it, it’s a piece of cake!

The Verdict

My Friend Pedro Review
What did you think?!

It’s not very often I find a free platformer game on the app store that I actually like but this game was a lot of fun. After getting used to the confusing controls, I could easily play it for hours on end!
