Dr Langeskov is- hmm. Well,
It isn’t a procedurally-generated pixel-art metroidvania with roguelike elements. There are no upgrades to collect, and the player doesn’t open up new areas of the map to explore as they build up their abilities. There isn’t a skill tree and the player doesn’t have to spend their skill points wisely.
There aren’t 120 stars to collect in total, and these are not rewarded for completing tough platforming challenges, nor are they for tricky puzzles. The player doesn’t have the benefit of a jetpack to help with these, and it isn’t taken away from them for some of the tougher challenges.
The player has no access to pistols, SMGs, shotguns, or even rocket launchers, and there is no impetus to conserve ammo. Enemies don’t come thick and fast, not requiring quick reflexes nor a steady aim.
There’s a total of zero eligible singles for the player to date, and the player can’t woo them with gifts or dialogue options. They can’t grow crops to sell for money with which to buy better tools, and there is no dungeon to explore.
But what it all comes down to at the end of the day is the quality of the songs- zero in total when you include the lack of bonus unlockables, with none added after you complete the game.
Fin or Bin:
I can’t think of anything else you would need to know? You can watch me Finish it here if you’re still uncertain, but it’s a 20 minute game with no price tag so you should really just do it yourself. Off you pop, then.
