In what has been a bit of a theme recently, we have a game that is a solid game with an oversexualised veneer. “ADVENTURES of CAPTAIN Becky” is actually a pretty decent platformer, but with a plethora of options for you to modify your character, and unlockable suits that fit into a variety of fantasy stereotypes. This is a bit more platformer than Dead or Alive Xtreme is volleyball, but only just.
That said, there’s doubtlessly a market for each of the two things this game is trying for (the 13 year old heterosexual boy, and the person who actually just wants to play a good platformer), and there’s likely even a market for something that does both. The extensive character customisation options would even be progressive, if they didn’t seem so tightly aimed at fantasy fulfillment. But I suppose, is that much different than the depiction of men in Muscle March and/or Cho Iniki? Or the depiction of women in Bayonetta for that matter?
So the bottom line: there’s a decent platformer here, and you’ll either find the presentation appealing or it’ll be something you’ll have to look past. I doubt very much you’ll have absolutely no reaction to it, though. 80 Microsoft Points with a large number of levels and, for better or worse, lots of customisation options.
Here’s what the developer (sakura) has to say about the game:
“The adventures of pirate captain Becky! Clear all stages and defeat the enemies! Play a total of 24 stages in EASY, NORMAL and HARD mode! Unlock the Extra stage! Collect 5 different costumes!”
