In Running Sausage, you are trying to avoid getting made into a hotdog and face numerous obstacles and enemies. This isn’t the most exhilarating game I’ve played and I wouldn’t particularly recommend it.
This is a side-scrolling game, and the perspective never changes as you play. I do feel like it would be more suited for mobile with less powerful CPUs. The background isn’t well rendered, instead consisting of simple animations that flash with different colors as you progress through the levels. The sausage and all the characters are poorly designed, although the delivery on platforming gameplay isn’t entirely terrible.
In this game, you play as a sausage which is trying to avoid getting placed in a hotdog bun. That’s about it for the storyline. You need to run through 40 levels which move relatively quickly. If you can’t beat a hitch, the level restarts. There are different obstacles which you are supposed to steer clear of, including folks who want to turn you into a hotdog, and jagged triangular edges which kill you off. There are power-ups that you’ll occasionally run into which give you extra speed or even aircraft that you can use to cruise through the levels. As you run, there is a green bar that fills up, and as soon as it does, you progress to the next level. Some of the levels are quite tough, and you’ll need to get all your synapses firing at 100% if you’re to make it through the motions, especially the upside-down levels.
The game tracks your stats for each level, including how many attempts you’ve made at completion.
The game either has a faulty design, or my controllers just weren’t responsive. A single button is the only thing that seems to work, and even then, the input is much slower than I would have expected for such a simple game. The only good thing about Running Sausage is the fact that it’s a side-scrolling game. Therefore you don’t really have to do too much other than avoiding obstacles.
Replay Value: 2.5
This game doesn’t offer you any incentive to keep playing, even with 40 levels. You won’t get any goals to play for, bonus points or collectibles in the entire game. You have to go through the entire set of levels without any breaks, and this is just unreasonable for any game. There are very few and repetitive power-ups that give you special abilities, no variation in gameplay throughout the entire 40 levels, no multiplayer, nothing.
This game lacks in every area, except for the occasional up-tempo music which syncs with the sausage’s running speed. As you play, you can’t help but wonder whether the developers rushed this game to get it onto the Steam Store. There’s not much intricacy to the game, just running to avoid obstacles and occasionally a static human character. There are no bosses, and the gameplay is too linear. I probably wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
This game is less than a dollar, but it still feels like you got ripped off after playing..
Pros : Simple gameplay.
Offers 40 different levels.
Cons : Lackluster, linear gameplay.
Replay Value 2.5
Average : 2.8
