Angry Alligator is an action-adventure game that is both funny and entertaining, suitable for many different groups of players. Experience the game that takes you into the role of a “swamp monster” going everywhere, from eating large and small animals to making a grand drinking party where people camp. Although the game’s motif is not new, the open world design is attractive, allowing you to control the main character wandering around in an eye-catching colorful experience space, full of cute and familiar animals in the game. life.
The Angry Alligator experience is similar to Maneater but funny and on a smaller scale of development. Instead of the realistic image of the aforementioned name, the Backup Plan developer chose a colorful cartoon graphic style for their brainchild. Basically, the player controls the crocodile to go “playing and playing” everywhere. Every time you eat, the main character gets experience points and level up. Reaching certain levels, the player’s alligator evolves into a more fearsome animal with stronger devouring and destructive abilities.
For example, initially you can only eat slow animals like turtles and frogs. At this point, the main character can’t break through obstacles like fences. When advancing to a certain level, the player’s crocodiles increase their hunting abilities, such as being able to chase fast-moving species and knock down barriers. However, eating meat isn’t the only way to level up. Not to mention, it is easy to make the game experience repetitive and gradually become boring after a certain period of experience.
This problem was solved by the developer Backup Plan through an exploratory experience that makes good use of Angry Alligator’s eye-catching open-world environment. Not only that, this factor also opens up simple mini-games that you can participate in, making the game experience richer and more attractive. Even so, the game experience is still heavy on plowing due to the unique design. The game requires you to level up the crocodile character quite a lot to be able to fight, play with more aggressive animals such as bears and people.
In fact, Angry Alligator is like a sandbox experience in the animal world, which feels quite free. Players can act as they please within the limits of the developer’s code. The game experience mainly revolves around solving the problem of hunger of the crocodile character in a fun context, interspersed with simple mini-games suitable for the whole family. That’s not to mention the series of decorative items that entertain the player through adorning the main character, making me rarely stop laughing.
The biggest problem with Angry Alligator, the feeling of excitement fades away in later experience. This is especially true with the design of “separating the river from the market” with the collected items you need to find in the game, gradually reducing the usual activities in the first half of the above experience when the protagonist’s level is still low. . However, these items are only unlocked when the player collects other items or level up the crocodile. Meanwhile, leveling up the control character is increasingly tiring and heavy at a certain level.
One problem that I also cannot fail to mention is that Angry Alligator’s data load time is quite long. It takes more than a minute from the time of opening the game to seeing the main screen, not counting half of the time mentioned above to enter the experience. Moreover, the game also has some miscellaneous errors related to movement. For example, being obstructed by an invisible wall leads to a very frustrating situation of the character stepping back. This problem only happens occasionally, but it leaves a feeling of extreme inhibition when you control crocodiles to hunt.
After all, Angry Alligator offers a highly entertaining action-adventure experience with a humorous cartoon-style graphic style and is suitable for many different groups of players, especially casual. If you love names like Maneater or a little more simple like Hungry Shark Evolution, this is a name worth considering despite a few problems with game bugs that can be frustrating in certain situations.
