Celeste (Nintendo Switch)
Buy Celeste key and get your hands on one of the best platform games around. It doesn’t have complicated 5-button skills, nor is it soul-crushingly hard (not at first, anyway). Celeste is all about the journey and how you want to take it. Climb the mountain, as the premise suggests, and see where that takes you.
Layers upon layers
As previously mentioned, Celeste is fairly easy to play, but hard to master. The game has 8 sections in total, each representing another part of the mountain. Main character’s name is Madeline and, once you buy Celeste key, it will be your mission to aid her in the quest to ascend the mountain. Along the way, of course, there are countless different tasks and secrets. This part is fairly easy, especially if you are an experienced platform enthusiast.
Now comes the fun part – you can unlock way harder alternate levels for you to enjoy if you prefer. These extra challenges will require precision and dedication, there’s also a chance you will die a great deal as well. But the game doesn’t treat death as a failure, rather it’s a learning moment. Feel up to the challenge? Buy Celeste key and see how far your skill can carry you.
Depending on your age and experiences, this game may surprise you with sudden (but very spot-on) tackling of some of the issues people face; namely depression and anxiety. Madeline herself struggles with certain problems and wants to overcome them. The higher up the mountain she goes, the more persistent her inner demons become.
In the end, the platformer has a silver lining, clinging to an idea that you should not try to escape that which is bothering you; instead, confront and make peace with it. Buy Celeste key and assist Madeline by finding the best possible solution… and maybe it will stick with you as well. Such dedication to social commentary hasn’t been seen in any of the previous platforms, in fact, it’s almost foreign to the genre. But times are changing and gaming industry changes with it – Celeste is proof of that!
A fun platformer
And should you want to avoid being burdened by someone else’s problems (completely understandable) or if the difficulty spikes are too much for you, there are fixes for that as well! Once you buy Celeste key, you have the option to skip the cutscenes, so you may enjoy platform after platform of various difficulty, allowing you to unlock secrets, gather strawberries (yes, that’s a thing) and improve your score without seeing most of the story. On the other hand, if you prefer to invest your time to the story, and the jumping puzzles are hindering you, you can turn on assist that will exponentially improve your gameplay. Celeste won’t disappoint any sort of player; this game is truly worth your time.
