Deep underground lies a reminder of Boarkind’s darkest hours. All it takes is one little boar to dig it back up. A block puzzler with an exploratory twist, Full Bore throws the player into an open world of crumbling mines, arcane ruins, and technological wonders with only curiosity to lead the way. Full Bore is packed to the brim with secrets and hidden rooms, because in a world of blocks, puzzles could be anywhere.
Full Bore is the journey of a young boar through the long-buried past. As you figure out how the blocks around you behave, you'll be able to reach new areas of the world and uncover their mysteries- and their riches. Use your ever-growing knowledge to dig your way though mines, temples, scrapyards, lava tubes, inexplicable lakes and mysterious laboratories, as you piece together the story of a world transfigured.
With over a hundred areas - a third of them hidden - no set path, and secrets everywhere, Full Bore is not just a world to get lost in, but one you can keep coming back to find something new.
Be a pig.* Dig. *You're actually a boar, but that doesn't rhyme with dig.
Explore at your own pace as you learn how you can interact with the blocks around you
Focus on puzzle-solving and exploration, not conflict.
Play as either Frederick the boar or Hildi the sow
Original glitch/blues soundtrack gets you in the mood to dig

I have a couple hours in this game and... it's enjoyable. It's a fun little platformer with a variety of stuff to do. I enjoyed my time with it. If it's on a discount (Like it is at the time of this review) then I would recommend a purchase. Also, the story is charming enough that I enjoyed it.

By now most people have tried a lot of indie games. They're probably saying that there is nothing new or innovative left in the genre, no way for this to evolve. This game proves them wrong. It shows indie games can be made with any idea. Now a bit about the game. It is a platformer puzzle game, that has an open world. In my opinion the game had good graphics and a fun story and finally an interesting idea of a boar being the main character. But then again, it follows the same path that most other platformers follow and the gameplay gets very similar after a while. But overall I say this game is rather good and if the genre interest you, give it a go.

I gotta say, I have never played as a bore before (rhyme!). Still this game peaked my interest. It's a puzzle platformer, and if you've read any of my reviews you'll know I LOVE PUZZLE AND PLATFORMER GAMES!
You know how some people are more curious than others. Those kind of people that wanna check every side route in a game just for the sake of curiosity? This is a game for those kinds of people. If you're not very curious and like linear games then you might not enjoy this game so much, or might not explore it's full potential.
Graphics aside, because lately pixelated 8bit games are simply "rad" - and let's face it we like and don't mind it - this game is very well made. The puzzles are fun and the element of joy when discovering a secret just hits you with this game - you feel so great when you play it! The best part is, all the puzzles can be solved at the spot - no need to wait for further in the game so that you acquire some ability or not... it's just you, your brain and the puzzle!
Puzzles get more complex the further you progress and with each puzzle you might learn something about the blocks you thought you already knew. Solving them is very satisfying and ego-boosting. You will definitely feel very smart after clearing some of them.
The game is accompanied by nice background art, animations and a wonderful soundtrack. There are occasional spelling and grammar errors, but hey, nothing too major.
All in all a great indie game, the kind after my own heart and I can't but give it a very high rating. Go and get it!!!
