6# Super Rude Bear Resurrection - 2017

Review77Score

"Super Rude Bear Resurrection is a super tight masocore platformer that anyone can beat! Every time you die your corpse stays behind – making the game easier. As your bodies pile up, you can use them as carpets, meatshields and paperweights until the game becomes as hard as you’re comfortable with – but if you’re good enough you never have to die at all. The Rude Bear universe takes place in a fantasy British grime world, with grafitti skylines and a grime soundtrack produced by Deeco."
