Hayfever  

 

There are so many clever and interesting ideas that come from indie video games. Hayfever is the perfect example. This nice little mail man has allergies and he winds up sneezing his letters away. We must help him collect these letters in one hundred and forty levels. Collect them all and there is some secret that you get to find. Hardcore gamers are the ones who will want to find this secret.

Hayfever has one very interesting game play mechanic. What is this interesting game play mechanic you ask? The mailman can launch himself different directions based on sneezing. There are also big globs of pollen in the levels. Collect three of them for even larger sneezes. We can also jump from pollen glob to pollen glob by sneezing as soon as we enter it.

When your character gets hit he blows up like a balloon and pops. We are then quickly reset to the last mailbox we opened. Mailboxes in Hayfever are continuation spots. Letters are what we really need to collect in this downloadable only video game that is on the PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Family Friendly Gaming was given a digital download code on the Switch.

Hayfever is just over seven hundred megs in terms of size. Hayfever has decent graphics for an indie title, and the music is cool to listen to. Expect a lot of sneezing sounds while you play Hayfever. There is a bit of a learning curve in Hayfever as well. It took me a few tries to get past the tutorial in this 2D side scrolling video game. I was also told which control scheme to use.

It is much more difficult to play Hayfever with the left joystick. Instead use the buttons. Even then it takes a bit to get used to. We must launch ourselves with the sneezing buttons and then traverse with the other buttons. Once you get used to the controls in Hayfever then you can do some amazing things. I do believe hardcore gamers will get into Hayfever more than casual gamers.
