Fight your way across the celestial world of Avalice where cats are green, motorcycles drive up walls and monster girls do most of the buttkicking! Freedom Planet is a cartoony, combat-based platform adventure that pits a spunky dragonoid and her friends against an alien attack force.

SONIC 4 AS YOU TRULY IMAGINED IT

Review from Steam

I have good news and I have good news.
The good news is this game is just as cringe as you hoped it would be.
The good news is this game is really good.

Review from Steam

Legitimately think this game is better than Sonic Mania

Review from Steam

Prologue
While Sega and Sonic Team continue to embarass themselves more and more with each successive installment in the Sonic Franchise, Freedom Planet establishes itself as THE definitive high-speed action platformer.
I'll be honest here, I'm not personally fond of the Sonic comparisons, but that's what everyone and their grandmas are comparing FP to, so that's how it'll be. Freedom Planet actually has more similarities with Treasure's games, such as Gunstar Heroes (and its underrated sequel, Gunstar Super Heroes), Alien Soldier and Dynamite Headdy, especially when it comes to the boss battles.
Graphics
Extremely well-made pixel art that looks sharp and clear. Everything is detailed, from the smallest grunt to the main characters' sprites, there's GREAT use of colour, everything is vibrant and shiny, and things that need to stand out DO stand out, and that applies to both environmental hazards and enemies. Animations are great, and convey the sense of impact that needs to be conveyed when needed.
Sound
Now here's something I wasn't expecting when I played this for the first time: The soundtrack goes really, REALLY hard, featuring a wide variety of instruments while the compositions themselves are, honestly, fantastic. I can remember a great chunk of the soundtrack from memory, and that's how you know it succeeded in being memorable.
None of the songs are grating, and the sound effects are another welcome surprise - They manage to be very distinct from other video game sfx, and citing Half-Life and especially its sequel as a comparison, if you hear a sound effect from this game somewhere else, you'll instantly recognize where they came from. They are VERY punchy and unique.
Story
I heard a lot of criticism towards this aspect of the game in particular, but my opinion is that it fits the 90s platformer vibe the developers were going for, and I can't blame them for their inexperience, at least they tried.
The voice acting was also something that I appreciated, and props to Dawn M. Bennet for giving us one of the most bone-chilling screams I've ever heard in a video game.
Gameplay
On a surface level, Freedom Planet is, like everyone else pointed out, similar to Sonic, but when you get to the details, you'll notice a lot of differences. First and foremost, the game is a lot more combat focused, and by combat focused I mean, your characters have more intricate movesets than your average 90s platformer, but won't lock you into combat arenas like Devil May Cry or the new Doom games, unless you're fighting a boss, of course.
This is a huge deal, because when you're not running from enemies, you'll be fighting them, and it feels remarkably smooth, with you having to decide if it's worth it to stay and fight or run, and some of the more elite enemies WILL chase you, but their hard-hitting attacks mean that running is sometimes a better idea.
Lilac and Carol have special moves with their own dedicated button that will give you invincibility frames, regulated by a meter on the HUD, while Milla has her own unique playstyle that focuses on deflecting projectiles while also having some of her own.
The bosses are fucking incredible, there's no other way to describe them. They keep you on your toes, have very distinct patterns, and most of all, are FUN to fight. A lot of them stand out, and the final form of the final boss has to be one of the most frantic, exhilarating encounters I've experienced outside of a Character Action game.
Hell, Freedom Planet IS a Character Action game, just with more platforming and running involved.
Look at my current playtime, now look back at this review. If this game wasn't worth playing, I wouldn't have spent an hour writing a review to try and convince more people to buy it. This is my favourite indie game for all time for a good reason.

Review from Steam

Super fast paced roller ball speed runner. Beautiful 2D graphics combinet with heartwarming music and crazy fun ride between many beloved levels. This games makes you wanna go as fast as you can and its shows. Even if you stopped in some obstacles it will help you to get back fast on track if you know where you going. Plus some good boss fight challenge never lets you sleep on a run. Every move counts. Controls tight and amazing. More replayability with many characters and many skills plus crazy secrets. Highly recommended.
