Da New Guys: Day of the Jackass
"Ladies and Gentlemen, we are witnessing the impossible..."
Brain - the worst brawler in the history of the Wrestle Zone - has won the title belt! Not even his team-mates Simon and Defender can believe it. But when Brain gets kidnapped (along with the belt), it's up to them to get him back.
Street-fights, car chases, and obssessed fans all stand in the way of Brain's rescue. But as the reluctant heroes find themselves descending ever deeper into the city's darkest corner, they learn that their problems are only just beginning...
- A crazy romp behind the scenes of a professional wrestling ring.
- Packed with devious puzzles and madcap humor.
- Multiple characters! Play as Simon, Brain and Defender.
- Full voice acting and original score.

I'm a big fan of almost all adventure games developed (or published) by Wadjeteye Games. But since I'm not a big fan of wrestling, I delayed the launching of "Da New Guys". Unnecessary, because it's really funny and nice adventure game.
First of all, you can easily notice, that in comparition to such titles as Blackwell series or Gemini Rue, here we've got really nice, "cartoon" 2D graphic. And I really like this style. Almost every character has its own, original design, maybe the animation could have used a bit more frames per second, but it's really not bothering me. I like the voice cast in this game - especially main characters (and I love the dialogs between Simon and Brain, they're really hilarious).
It's really tempting to share some of the funny moments or gags in the game, but I don't want to spoil anything - especially because it's one of the best parts of this game. The humor in "Da New Guys" is not vulgar or infantile, so both younger and elder audience can have a lot of fun with this title.
If you already know some of the Wadjeteye's games, you're probably aware that they're not too hard. So if you're the beginner (or you're not too good in such titles, as me), you really should try this one. Unfortunately, there is a big possibility, that more experienced players won't find here any challenge. But even they can give "Da New Guys" a chance, especially if they have enough of "grim" and "dark" titles and want to have some fun. And it's worth to add, that you will have the possibility to control all of three characters during the game, so you won't complain for the lack of diversity (playing of every character will bring some limits and possibilites, for example Brain won't be passed to the places for „adult men”).
To conclude – I really recommend this title. It's short and relatively easy, but brings a lot of fun, and that's the biggest advantage of „Da New Guys”.
