This game is an extremely awkward RPG experience. You have to help a funny yellow octopus to look like a real human. It could be easy, but guys from Young Horses studio decided to endow their creation with monstrous controls calling them “the strongest and the weakest point of the game”. Octodad: Dadliest Catch downloading is available for XBOX, Nintendo Switch, Wii U, PS4 and smartphones.

Graphics: 4

The first release of Octodad was for PC and PS4, but with Dadliest Catch developers decided to make it easily convertible for as much as 11 platforms. It would be impossible without moderate visuals. However, Octodad is not about visual admiration. It’s about unstoppable fun! That’s why it looks very spontaneous and cartoonish, but I can’t call it half-baked. It doesn’t have any detailed textures, and it’s great, because nothing should distract you from the octopus’s hardcore business.

Gameplay: 4.5

The lion’s share of Octodad gameplay is based on difficult controls and extremely stressful challenges. Surprisingly, this mixture appeared to be a unique gaming experience. Yes, we’ve already seen something like this in Surgeon Simulator, but here we reveal a big world of various problems, so to say. Octodad is a deeply worked character, who struggles to be good enough to be loved by his human folks.

First look at Octodad usually provides a feeling, that this is not a lasting game. As soon as you pass a couple of missions, you will see, that all locations and tasks are designed to keep you in constant attention. Unique ragdoll controls are used to make you find an approach to endlessly variative tasks. You never have to do the same task, so the word “boredom” is not applicable to this Octodad: Dadliest Catch review.

Every second of gameplay is flavored with witty jokes and fine cultural references. For example, you can find thulhu on church stained-glass windows and Stanley Pair O’Bowls advertisement on posters.

Controls: 4

Take my advice, don’t take this game serious, please. Octopus has eight tentacles, and each of them is moved separately. You can’t just press W or push the stick to walk. In the PC version, you have to make every step by pressing mouse button to lift a “leg” and releasing it to step. In addition to that, you have to move a mouse to move tentacles forward. Quite the same goes to manipulating arms. Gamepad controls are not dramatically different. Same actions are performed by sticks. And, yes - it’s very very difficult and looks hilarious. Moreover, tentacles’ behaviour changes from mission to mission. Difficult, but very exciting!

Replay Value: 4.5

Even though Octodad has a deep detailed plot that is worth a full-length movie, the whole game walkthrough takes just a few hours. In the end, you would receive a satisfying sense of completion and a strong need to play some more missions. This wish is incarnatable. You can download some more adventurous missions in your platform game store. Octodad is charming, and developers did their best to squeeze this concept to the last drop.

The Bottom Line

Octodad: Dadliest Catch is one of the worthiest awkward games in video games history. It’s frustratingly short and very easy to fall in love with. Octodad’s story has many edges and tells good jokes with some surprisingly deep notes. Yes, it can make you furious with its controls, but it’s impossible to stand from giving it a chance over and over. It’s a badass game, but it has a soul.
