Review: Good Job! explained to parents

Good Job Nintendo Featured Ecran Partage

What parents need to know

Good Job! offers you to do a good job in many situations. You play as a small character in the shape of a baton, pictograph and it is a question of obeying and executing the tasks of each mission as quickly as possible without breaking too many equipment and objects.

So sometimes, it is a question of connecting the wi-fi in the company, others to deposit boxes in the right place with a freight elevator, to install a presentation on a video projector or to organize a Zen garden for employees. Many challenges and varied situations that are punctuated by many touches of humor about the world of work.

Many elements in the levels are destructible and use a physics engine in order to produce incredible situations.

Did you have to water the boss’s plants? why is his office flooded?

Did you need to bring a projector to the meeting room? the door is closed? why not pass it through the walls using a wire as a slingshot.

The whole universe is depicted in a style similar to an interactive cartoon.

The game is playable alone or in pairs locally only. With 2 players, the screen is shared or divided dynamically when the 2 characters incarnated are too far away in the level.
