Every achievement hunter knows about Ratalaika Games by now. Their offerings are quick and easy ways to get 1000G, and the games aren’t half bad either. Sometimes, they try to change things up a bit with their weekly releases, and this one is no exception. We’re getting two games for the price of one here, but hopefully the easy achievements still remain. The Parasite Pack is out today on Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch.
Included in the Parasite Pack are two 8-bit inspired platformers, funnily enough involving playable parasites. First up is Flea!, a 2D platformer where you cannot stop jumping. As Henry the Hyperactive Flea you must navigate through 80 levels of difficult but nostalgic 8-bit platformer.
There is also Tapeworm Disco Puzzle which, as the name suggests, is more of a puzzler than a platformer. This one features 100 levels and you must guide the tapeworm through these levels to avoid enemies and obstacles.
The Parasite Pack also features:
- 2 games bundled together
- Rewind feature, to cover up your mistakes
- Retro game inspired technology, art, and sound
- Parasite-themed fun
- Platform and puzzle gameplay
At this point we would normally mention how Ratalaika Games usually have easy achievements. At this point, with 180 levels across two games though, we genuinely cannot tell whether this is still the case. Fingers crossed it is.
If you want to take the punt for easy achievements, the Parasite Pack is on the Xbox Store now priced at £5.99. One thing that is the same with this latest Ratalaika Games release is that there is an introductory discount, dropping the price down to £4.79 for a brief period. Our review will be on its way soon, once our course of tablets is complete to remove our own parasites.
Flea! is a challenging 2D platformer with an intriguing back story. Play as Henry the Hyperactive Flea who just can’t stop jumping! Meet weird characters and discover secrets while exploring 80 levels of brutally difficult yet nostalgic 8-bit mayhem. Tapeworm Disco Puzzle is a grid-based puzzle game where you play as a tapeworm; the local nightclub owner. Guide the tapeworm to avoid enemies and obstacles in 100 levels of retro-inspired challenging fun.
