REVIEW: Super Lucky’s Tale: Guardian Trials DLC (Xbox One)

Written by Brett Hale

The guy’s at Playful Corp have kept both DLC’s under wraps until the day they dropped on the Xbox store, and after playing Gilly Island I hoped more DLC would come and it certainly did with Guardian Trials.

There is a story for this DLC, nothing too big only taking a few hours to complete. After Lucky saved Gilly Island in the first DLC his sister thinks it’s time for him to meet his destiny, and become a guardian of the book of ages.

The Hub for this DLC is another small island, but once you play through the levels they transform into a virtual world, though some don’t have a VR visual design. I totally enjoyed the VR concept, it was like a tribute to the 80’s. Retro lovers will enjoy this DLC very much.

The world isn’t all that's changed, enemies from bees, giant flowers, caterpillars are now robots, but that's not all that can kill you, water is still a death sentence as well as landing on spikes, then there are those barstard fireballs that you'll need to keep your eyes peeled for. Now, this DLC I found to be more difficult then the last, so if your patience isn't the best prepare to lose your shit because some levels are just more tricky than others.

The point of this game isn’t anything other then collecting coins and diamonds, killing enemies and taking down the bosses in the boss battles. In my time I've seen some weird things, example being dolphins jumping out of the water with rainbow trails behind them all while they were shooting lasers out their eyes. Something new to the game is the fact that you can spend those coins on outfits and accessories for Lucky, such as sunglasses, a mullet and some cost a mint so if you're new to the game save those coins and you’ll unlock some easy achievements.

I don’t feel the need to mention much about how the game looks, just let it be known that it looks the exact same on the first DLC and base game, very colourful, and for Xbox One X owners the game runs at 4K, 60fps, with a lower resolution and frame rate on base hardware. The music in Super Lucky’s Tale has always been great, and well it's the same in this DLC.

If you enjoyed the base game, then both DLC’s are a must. This DLC, just like the first gives more achievements to earn and some are pretty easy to obtain. It’s not a long DLC but it's a reason to play Super Lucky’s Tale and I almost forgot the DLC’s are cheap as chips!
