THE VIDEOKID reviews and comments

Product received for free The Videokid catapults me back into my childhood youth//. Paperboy says salute. How much Fun you can have as an Adult with this "old" way of playing, it still evokes memories of the first "game attempts" Is unbelievable. Anyone who knows PAPERBOY MUST have this Game, simple yet difficult. An absolute TOP Game, I'm more than thrilled. Many Thanks to the Team of PIXEL TRIP STUDIOS FOR a Journey Through time and mega a lot of Fun. Sina

A wild Ride through Pop Culture with a addictive Game principle. You play a Young Skater who, on his Way to a Date with his Girlfriend, quickly does his Job as a VHS supplier and encounters many Obstacles from pop culture of The 80s/90S. The Challenge is that the Obstacles are coming faster and faster and Dodging or Skipping is becoming more and more difficult. For Nostalgists and Players who are looking for a cool "in Between" game, a clear mandatory Tible. The Price also makes for a quick Purchase Decision.

For me the only and huge problem that this game possesses is I find completely out of budget the prices charged in the shop of the game. To be able to buy a single character you will have to spend hundreds of hours sure a little game that becomes very repetitive has force. A good part you will win + or – 3dollars, a personal will cost you 250.... Ehhhh and perso there are dozens. I don't understand why they did this. But other than that the game is quite fun and we spend time without even realizing. So I would recommend it anyway at a small price anyway.
