Milli and Greg from QuByte Interactive and 2ndBoss is a challenging retro-styled 2D platformer on PlayStation 4. After Milli arrives home from school, she finds a note from her mother. She’s going to be working late that night, but she left some food in the microwave. Oh, and Greg ran away, so if Milli could go and search for him in the woods, that would be great. Greg is the cat you see in the game’s trailer and in each of the screenshots in this Milli and Greg review, which is why it’s important that you help Milli rescue him.
There are over 100 levels to take on in Milli and Greg, with the first handful of stages allowing you to get the hang of things before hazards and other elements are introduced. Each level will have optional cherries for you to collect, and maybe a photograph as well. On top of this, you’ll start to find the always classic deadly sharp spikes in both stationary and moving varieties, platforms that start to fall after you step on them, rotating fire bars, moving platforms, buzzsaws, springs that will send you flying at high speed, and more.
You’ll control Milli with the left analog stick or the D-Pad as you jump with the X button and dashing in all eight directions with the Square button. Milli can also cling to walls to use them for a wall jump, thus allowing her to reach platforms that would otherwise be out of her reach. Since this is a physics-based platformer, you’ll need to take into consideration your character’s momentum to be able to land on each platform in one piece. You can also zoom in and out on each stage by pressing the Circle button, although I suggest that you keep the view zoomed out to make things easier for you.
The game offers a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy, for which you’ll have to unlock a single Bronze trophy, 2 Silver trophies, and 10 Gold trophies. The first one will pop after you complete the first level in the game. After that, you’ll get trophies for completing each of the game’s chapters, for beating all levels, for picking up all cherries along the way, for finding all photos, playing and beating all black and white levels, and unlocking and completing all of the lost levels. Oh, and saving a mouse.
Milli and Greg is a challenging retro-styled 2D platformer that at times feels NES hard, which means it’s not going to be for everyone. The difficulty increases at a steady pace as new elements are added to change things up, and once you exit the city and enter the third chapter of the game, things really start to get crazy. Milli and Greg is out on PlayStation 4 with a low $3.99 price.
