With the premiere of the platform, Super Woden GP “opens eyes” for the first time on 11.09.2022. Released by “EastAsiaSoft”, this teaser toy skillfully and without breaking a sweat manages to create a subtle cognitive dissonance in us. The player observes high above retro tracks, driving a cart (not so retro in terms of graphics) that does not recognize the laws of physics and for which properties such as “traction” and “inertia” are something of an amateur or as we call it “your grandmother for life.” .”. However, the rest of the competitors on these tracks clearly have quite well-rounded grandmothers, because the problems that you and I would encounter,
somehow they don’t apply to them, and to add insult to injury, these guys don’t mind shutting us down. Yes.. it’s a racing game where we are thrust into this alternate world, c
which we prove (at least I) to ourselves that the Physics teacher has been filling our heads with “relative” information all these years and nothing is as it seems.. who is a conspirator now, eh..?
Super Woden GP Gameplay
I wouldn’t say the controls are anything to go by in terms of difficulty.. quite the opposite. We very quickly understand what we need to push and what we need to tilt to become a part of this.. something. The problem is with the game’s response – Ooooh, you want to turn slightly on that slop.. why don’t we kiss the tree sharply in the middle of the turn!! – and so suddenly we find ourselves crashing without even having time to think if the triangle is in the trunk .. is there
in this holy triangle at all and the way it went, wouldn’t it be square..?
I was not particularly impressed with the time spent on the tracks of this championship.
The moment it loaded the first race it was clear to me that this wasn’t going to be the new thing on the market, but I wasn’t expecting what I went through either. I’ve never been a fan of racing games, car games and driving in general – it’s just not my thing. For example, however, “NFS Underground 2” has a special place in my heart, and as reserved as I am towards this type of game, I always
I’m willing to give them a chance. Here, however, the chance I gave is rather to my controller.. I gave it a chance not to fall into pieces, because of what I defined as a special case of poor spatial orientation at the time in question – the problem is 100% my fault.
Due to the sensitive text formed in the following lines, I would like to note in my defense that I tried several times to break the prejudice of my own clumsiness and “get in the way” (but what about quotes, it was literal) before greeting blooming the closest of the family to mine
My greatest achievement was finishing a track while these little remote control carts were passing me by. In the process of my next attempt to play this thing and with the clear idea that I was in last place, I was very surprised when more cars started passing me.. I wasn’t last..? ..no.. people are just a lap ahead of me.
The angle at which I had to play was uncomfortable to say the least, the car behaved as if I had forgotten about our anniversary – it goes, turns, buzzes and generally works.. but it won’t be the way I want and the moment I decide, that I was coping, the nastiness reminded me that I wasn’t coping, she was letting me. What better example of this than the sudden loss of control of the car, leading to PinBall performances on trees around the track aggressive enough to make associations and organizations
hashtags on the cart in defense of nature.
There are certainly people who will find Super Woden GP interesting, so I advise you – after reading this, try other sources.
Personally, I was a bit disappointed with my experience and maybe if the camera was third person (behind the player) it would have been a better idea and it’s not like EastAsiaSoft haven’t shown they’ve mastered it in their other titles as well.
