Carly and the Reaperman is a Co-op Puzzle adventure where you must make your way through the underworld helping lost souls on your way. Though it can also be played solo (you control both Carly and Reaperman) I recommend playing this with a friend, one in VR and one in PC.
There is a story throughout Carly and the Reaperman but there is really not much I can divulge without spoiling it, I will say it was enjoyable, the npc's were a nice touch, but for some the story maybe a bit too predictable from the start.
Reaperman can also be customized by the player controlling Carly but I found it a bit useless really and left him default most of the time
This review was played in co-op mode, Where we alternated between worlds
The games campaign took me 7.6 hours to complete, though this time might vary based on how long the puzzles take you to solve and how good you are at communication.
I played this on a:
WMR HP Reverb
The Graphics in this game are rather simple as can be seen in the screenshots but I think work quite well and have a nice charm to them. Environments are rather simple a bunch or floating platforms in a 360 sphere texture.
The gameplay is a series of puzzles and platforming, as best as I can describe it plays a bit like those bonus levels in Super Mario Sunshine if you have ever played that before, there are a number of interesting unique game play elements that make the game quite fun an a challenge through out, one in particular that I liked was Blocks and platforms that would be invisible to one player but not the other, really testing your communication skills and maybe your friendship
The controls all work well, I would recommend the PC player use a controller to gain some finer controls for the more precise platforming sections, the VR player mostly just needs to grab and hold blocks around the levels, no artificial locomotion needed, except for pulling and dragging yourself around for some of the bigger levels
The game has a number of collectables that may entice you to play a second time or add a bit of challenge for those who like to 100% a game, but I thought the campaign was a good length on its own, even without them.
Carly and the Reaperman is a really good bit of fun and has a good length campaign with challenging and unique concepts. Its only possible real issues might be if you cannot find someone to Co-op with you, I feel you might miss out a bit on the experience.
