Tetsumo Party is a rather interesting title, it’s basically hole in the wall but with sumo folks. This is a local party game where players attempt to maneuver the bodies of their character to match the arriving wall shape. There are minor variants to the setup, but that is largely all this game is. There really isn’t much to it, but it does excel at the focal concept.
The walls arrive from the backdrop and you frantically try to move those limbs around. You either get through to feel the challenge of the next wall, or fail miserably and have to restart. That’s all this game is. There’s no sort of wacky campaign, or any kind of real mix up. You live, switch around, and die by the wall coming upon you.
It has a nice sense of minimalistic visuals. There’s a fine bit of music in the backdrop and some alright sound effects. You can play this with some friends locally, or by yourself. The limb movement is input based and you’ll have a few combinations to hit in order to match the shape.
It can actually be somewhat hard at times to match it due to confusion as to how it’s setup. A very simple, and straight forward experience for sure. Just purely expect that for gameplay, it really doesn’t have any additional depth past that.
Tetsumo Party is minimal, there’s nothing to it aside from a party mode where you shift limbs around. It’s actually hard to talk about, and or really right about considering just how minimal this actual package is. Like, I want to come up with more to write about for this one, but there isn’t anything else to go over. Soothing visuals, basic limb movement and some walls to hide from with friends.
I anticipate you, and your group will tire very quickly of the concept, there are more intense, or well generally fulfilling party games out there. If you do challenge the wall, best of lucking staying involved with it. Oh, and there are some characters to unlock over time. That’s all, yep, about covers this one up entirely for sure. Or does it? Nope, that’s all. See, I can hit word goals for sure if I try. It just adds a laugh as opposed to more critical points on the game as it’s that light on the content aspect.
