Really enjoyed this adventure game for the tourney.

Gorgeous production and great environments are the standout, but the gameplay in general was quite fun too (though somewhat one dimensional at times, being one of the few criticisms I'd have).

Platforming saves are reasonable and well designed, but are all quite long and can be quite learny, so its not a game to really breeze through, but if you don't mind taking some time to get killed a couple times and stop and look around, its a fun time.

The bosses each have their own surprise and are fun and dynamic, featuring mixed attacks and varying phases.

Overall, the game feels like a solid installment from both Erik and Echo and very distinguishable to their style, so if you enjoy their games, you'll like this too and I'd strongly recommend it. If their design isn't your style, this may not change your mind but worth a try for any interested in adventure games.

Great adventure game by Erik and EchoMask, a maker combo that complement each other like meatballs and mustard. I was particularly impressed by the platforming, especially in the last level. Lots of really neat movement coupled with fun mechanics. The bosses were tougher than I thought they would be and could spark frustration in those who are less interested in adventure-style bosses, but for me they were still quite enjoyable. Pretty fun all around!

This is truly an Adventure game that deserves a round of applause, I had an amazing time playing it and think it's one of the strongest starts to 2022 we could have gotten. It combines the style of 2 profound makers in such a harmonious way that by the end I realized they were easily one of the best pair-ups in the community.

Big Shot is an incredible journey through three separate stages, each with its own theme, mechanics, and a boss fight. Each stage is such a visual masterpiece, making this one of the most aesthetically pleasing adventure games there are. The platforming also is pretty damn good for the first two stages, while the third takes it to an even higher plane of enlightenment. The various mechanics throughout the game, such as climbable vines and falling stalactites, help add a wonderful layer of depth to the gameplay as well, and all feel smooth and fluid to play once you learn what to do. It's worth noting that the difficulty increases with each stage, I'd say the first starts in the mid-40s while the final stage reaches almost to a 60, so be wary of that especially if you dislike learn-y saves.

This was truly a treat to play finally, it's definitely one of the most memorable games to come out this year. I really hope that Echo and Erik decide to partner up in the future again, as I think their combination of skills has truly created something magical. They're definitely big shots after making this one.

Didn't beat the final boss after trying many times, but I could say this game is well-designed and has many good ideas. The gimmick is fun to play and it can cause many deaths beyond expectation, which made me laugh. The difficulty rises after defeating each boss. The final area is all long save in low gravity , the final boss is hard and I don't feel like to try it any more. In all I recommend this high-quality game to you, if you are interested in cool adventure games.
