Studio Ghibli-esque Endless Runner Buddy & Me Soars onto The Amazon App Store
Buddy & Me is an absolutely stunning endless runner that has finally made its way onto Android. This gem has been available on iOS for a couple of months now so it is really fantastic that us Android gamers finally get to check it out. Buddy & Me features some of the most gorgeous artwork I have ever seen in a video game and its beautiful 2D painted environments and great cel-shaded characters look just like something straight out of one of Studio Ghibli’s classic films.
Despite the fact that Buddy & Me is an endless runner it does have quite the story behind it. It tells the story about pleasant dreams, discovering nature, and of friendship. As the boy dreams he finds himself on a fast-paced journey with Buddy where he runs through an enchanted forest inspired by the forests of the Pacific Northwest. The boy runs, jumps, and swings through the forest but when he needs a helping hand Buddy will fly in and help you on your way.
Another way that Buddy & Me stands out from other games in the endless runner genre us that there are no enemies or threats of instant. The game is more about experiencing a nostalgic, imaginative run through the woods with your best friend. Each time you play you’ll get a bit better and as you master the player’s abilities and learn the various obstacles you’ll find yourself getting a little deeper into your dream. The developers aim for this adventure was to focus on the game’s unique “companionship” mechanics which makes it accessible for gamers of all ages and skill levels.
