There’s nothing worse than a constant disturbance from a busy new highway at all hours of the day. That’s what plagues the previously idyllic area in which CrossKrush is set and so an elderly couple are taking matters into their own hands on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. How? By blowing stuff up, obviously.
Developed by Thinice, who are best known for their fun platformer Twin Robots: Ultimate Edition, CrossKrush is a puzzler where road rage is literally encouraged. It stars Henry and Florence, a happily married couple that have lived life to the fullest, often indulging in a bit of dancing while listening to their favourite music. Unfortunately, a road has recently been constructed right near their home and the endless traffic is causing a racket. This elderly couple isn’t putting up with it anymore and the only real solution is to clear the roads – in the most extreme way possible.
Get ready to take on wave after wave of oncoming traffic, controlling Henry or Florence through ten levels, each containing ten puzzles. The idea is to blow up as many cars as possible – slightly like Tetris, apparently – and finish off the rest using a whack from your trusty cane. If it’s too much to handle on your own, the option is present to team up with a friend locally as well.
Key features of CrossKrush:
- Simple & intuitive controls
- 10 levels with 10 puzzles each, for a total of 100 challenges!
- Local multiplayer action: play with a friend, or against a friend
- 2 different characters to choose from, with several customization options
- Catchy jazz music
For those wanting to cause utter mayhem with a couple of OAPs, a trip to the Xbox Store or PS Store will sort them out with a copy of CrossKrush at a cost of £4.99 – discounted for two weeks to £3.99. Should you prefer to play on Nintendo Switch and PC, it’ll be available for both platforms on 23rd October instead. Let us know whether you’ll be grabbing CrossKrush by leaving a comment below!
