An arcade-style game that proudly wears its influences on its sleeve. While the comparisons to Pac-man and Ms Pac-man are the most apparent, there are elements of Donkey Kong, Mario Bros, Donkey Kong Junior and Mappy in this stew. I personally don't have any problems with games that try to recapture old experiences, but I do expect them to improve on their predecessors by making enough change and improvement to justify their existence. Annalynn wrecks the curve for this test. If you enjoy the Namco and Nintendo arcade releases of the 80s, you're in for a good time.
In Annalynn, you play as a miner who must collect all the gold nuggets (pac pellets) in a mine while fleeing multicolored snakes (ghosts). But this is not a Pac-man clone; you do not move automatically. Instead your character moves around via platforming in a mario-esque manner. Like all of the influences mentioned earlier, the game is simple but not easy. You will die a LOT at first. But the game rewards quick reflexes and intuitive thought. The replay value is excellent. You can beat the campaign in an evening, but the game rewards you with a randomized level option that has secrets and aesthetic rewards like color palates.
Annalynn will definitely become one of my regular pick-up-and-play options. A fun game with charming music and graphics. It's also priced incredibly low at five dollars. Literally the only half-criticism I can muster is that the games colorful and fun appearance will undoubtedly attract children who will find it frustrating. But even that's a reach. Play Annalynn!

Super fun game! Love the pac-man platformer gameplay, it works so well and can get so tense. I managed to get all the color palettes + achievements in 5 hours but I'll probably play more whenever I feel like it!

I did not expect this to be one of my favorite indie titles but when you appeal to sick and loveable Pac-Man fan I am, you get a thumbs up from me
