About

Ape Out is a wildly intense and colorfully stylized smash ‘em up about primal escape, rhythmic violence, and frenetic jazz. Build up nearly unstoppable momentum and use your captors as both weapons and shields to crush everyone on your procedurally generated path to freedom.
Stylish Escape: Embrace bold colors and a dazzling perspective as you rush through tight corridors, open areas, and twisting labyrinths on a mad dash for freedom. Overcome all manner of human opposition, nefarious traps, and breakable obstacles to find each exit and escape captivity.
Grab and Smash: Unleash your primal instincts and incredible strength to overpower your captors. Hold them steady to create a human shield, smash their feeble bodies into walls, or throw one into another in a violent explosion of humanity.
Dynamic Soundtrack: Find your rhythm in the chaos as a dynamic soundtrack of drums, cymbals, and decapitations drive the action to the edge of mayhem.

Ape Out reviews and comments

I really really wanted to write a review on it but Jacob Geller (who is brilliant btw) says everything I could have said much more eloquently than I ever could have. WATCH IT.
«Blew my mind»
«Constantly dying and enjoy it»
9/10 - This game made me feel like I can punch thru concrete.
«Blew my mind»
«Just one more turn»

Product received for free Ape Out-review Inspired by Hotline Miami, Gabe Cuzzillo part of an overhead view and a handful of actions to kick off a fast-paced Ballad of Wrath. Ape Out has only three mechanics, running, crushing and holding enemies, from these functions his game system anger evolving to deliver complicated situations that require some precision and good reflexes. The level of action is devilishly high, we will practically be enclosed in a prolonged labyrinth procedural saturated by hunters, and are not only simple humans with a network, but are well tanned with a huge variety of weapons; Pistols, shotguns, submachine guns, flamethrowers or rocket launchers. For this reason, it is important to think on the fly to act quickly, and thus avoid standing longer than enough as it could lead to a tragic end. On the other hand, the design of the scenarios is conveniently open, that is because it is composed of multiple layers with its own branches, with all the good and bad that this implies. Bennett Foddy exhibits his technique with exceptional art, a powerful minimalist style that evolves with well-maintained brushstrokes and impeccable completion. Each of his scenes begins as a blank canvas about to be knocked outed by the desire for freedom. Planes totally empty, but slowly come to life by the movements of the gorilla, actions that feel like a blow projecting the cruel charm of art. The Magic of Ape Out not only lies in the superlative artistic direction, but the sound section directed by Matt Boch with its relaxing, but rhythmic jazz melodies invade passion and a fervent desire for fury. The exciting journey of irrationality is perfectly balanced by the matrix of its instruments, the pleasure of the drums and the dynamics of the cymbals create the ideal scenery to boost the excessive doses of action to ridiculous points. Painting the walls of red as old Rick Taylor would say. Returning Digital has a special affection for the sadistic proposals, and Ape Out, is no exception. After all its attractive audiovisual we find a game that continually tunes the savagery in its most primitive state. In Short, Ape Out is a persistent melody unleashed by fury on a canvas of pure magic. The electrifying pace of action leaves a powerful but ephemeral adventure flowing. In Spite of this, during its intense chapters, Ape Out leaves the rod too high for the sublime effectiveness of its proposal. Practically pays tribute to his name and becomes the benchmark par excellence of the genre, Smash Them Up. * Simple, but fun Positive Points. * The electrifying dose of action. * Hold enemies and use them as shields is great. * A well-balanced difficulty curve. * The Design and Laberintico of their scenarios. * Visually looks like a moving painting. * Very well maintained sound Band. * A frantic and intense pace of play. Negative Points * A rather short campaign. To read the complete analysis proceed to the following link: PC Indie Master Race [pcindiemrace.com]
