Someone out there is clicking on this review, and wondering if this Wii U has any affiliation with the retired professional wrestler. They might be chanting: "fear the spear," as they hope to hear about body slams, and titles. Sorry this is not that Edge. This is a home console retro downloadable video game.
Players get to play a block in Edge. Before all your sarcasm comes out, let me explain that Edge will challenge you. I do not care how arrogant you are. I do not care how great you think you are. Edge will stretch your patience, and perseverance.
The levels in Edge start really easy. In fact rolling from start to finish is a breeze. Then this home console game starts to turn up the heat slowly. All of a sudden your 'A' rankings turn into 'B' rankings, and eventually down to 'D' rankings. At this point you acknowledge that you need to step up your game.
The longer you play Edge, the more this little $1.99 game throws at you. Moving floor panels, switches, bounce pads, fall through flooring, rolling your block up walls, shrinking your block, and more. By the time you complete all forty-eight levels you will feel like you got your moneys worth.
Graphically Edge looks very old school, and not very impressive. The sounds are also retro, and will either excite or annoy you. Since we had both reactions here at Family Friendly Gaming Nation. The intelligent design to the level layouts as well as doing your best is what sticks out.
Edge is a perfect title for the Wii
U. This little game is priced like an app, but it gives a home console
experience. Families can learn new concepts about how to play this game
while exploring the levels. Momentum can get you, so be careful in
