Game principle

Don’t buy Super Lucky’s Tale, this is an older version of New Super Lucky’s Tale.

New Super Lucky’s Tale offers players the opportunity to play as the fox Lucky. This one will move in a 3D world, jump on platforms and enemies and recover objects. It will also travel through many environments. The universe is colorful is enchanting and similar to what we see in cartoons.


When I tried the game, I said to myself, I have to talk about it on the site! The game is perfectly suitable for children but also for adults. It is very pleasant to play and there is no need to move the camera often. The vast majority of the time it is placed in the right place.

The game is a little bit long and stretched in length for my taste.

Despite this, New Super Lucky’s Tale is a safe bet, and should be able to be found at a low price from now on.
