Garlic from French indie outfit Sylph gives you precision platforming, evasive action, jumping, and confrontations.
Featuring a compendium of mini-games, 12 zones, containing nine levels, plus one special boss, Garlic is, appropriately enought, a veritable feast of action. With collectible Garlic coins, tons of enemies and some neat environmental variations, this has considerable replayability.
While the star and central character is aptly named Garlic, he’s better known to his friends as ‘Onion Boy Head’ – a brave and fearless veggie, and just a smidge nasty, who wants to climb the sacred tower to meet the Cyber Goddess!
As a precision platformer game, Garlic features an eight direction dash, plus a super dash you can perform by slamming floors, walls, and even ceilings, allowing some crazy moves.
Finally, a way to enjoy Garlic without the bad breath!
Published by Ratalaika Games, Garlic is out on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Microsoft Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch.
Gaming since 1984, retro gaming since 2004. Contributes to Linux Format magazine and MakeUseOf.com.
