The first thing you'll notice is that the backgrounds and characters have a simple, yet cartoon-like style to them. This suits it well as the sprites mix with the backdrops. Each character is nicely animated and given the right amount of detail that gives them their character. Backgrounds are simply fantastic as well and you will be anticipating what new backdrops you will encounter as you go on. Also, there are some fantastic animated scenes. Everything looks great, but make sure you set the game's setup graphics to 640x400, even though it will suggest not to. The character sprites will look much better, but if you want to see the credits properly switch it back.
One of the best qualities of this game is the way it pulls you into its world. It actually feels like you are watching a Saturday morning cartoon. Each character is well thought out and given its personality through the fantastic use of the speech pack. The voices are phenomenal considering the fact that the creator of the game did all of them on his own. This is definitely a memorable cast that youâ€™ll love. The plot too is really great as it doesn't forces its jokes or takes its self too serious. As for the sounds and music you'll be hearing, it all sounds great and meshes together nicely. The only small gripe is the fact that the music is borrowed from other sources. Still, that does not ruin anything as the tunes are appropriate to each part of the game
Da New guys rating: 9.7/10
The story of three odd wrestlers, Da New Guys is another one of those games with a really nostalgic, Saturday morning cartoon feel. The characters are brilliant, enhanced by the excellent voice pack and the beautifully drawn cartoon graphics. The music and sound effects are all top notch too.
The story is divided into four parts, making room for plenty of diverse puzzles and locations. For instance, at one point the action switches from the main plot to one of the wrestler's shifts at a local fast food joint, where you have to carry out some menial tasks to proceed with the game. This grounds the story brilliantly in an everyday suburban atmosphere, as does the wonderfully cosy flat that the main characters share
The graphics are pretty good, the puzzles are logical and (for me) enjoyable, and the wrestling match minigame was hillarious. All in all, this game is coolnificant.
