Developed by Crema, Immortal Redneck has you as a redneck protagonist racing throughout Egypt, well I believe its Egypt as there are Pyramids. He crashes his buggy and for some reason is embalmed and mummified. This is where your journey begins.

Immortal Redneck is a first-person shooter with the standard FPS premise of you walking around and shooting stuff with your guns. You will die again and again in while trying to advance in the game & you need to kill enemies which in turn drop coins that you will need to upgrade your skill tree.

REVIEW: Immortal Redneck (Nintendo Switch)

Each time you die you are warped out and everything resets in the Pyramids. You do have an unlimited number of lives, but in the end, this can get kind of repetitive.

I found it really satisfying when you purchase a new upgrade in order to help you progress further in the pyramid. The skill tree is very well done and each skill has a good description on what it does, and how much the skills costs.

Each room you enter will set you up with a new challenge and the doors will lock and won’t open until all the enemies are killed. You will have your basic weapons always like the pistol, shotgun and explosives, but some enemies will drop other weapons or you will find them in treasure chests. When you die you will need coins to re-enter the Pyramid & the amount changes all time.

The HUD is basic and has all the details you need to play like the Map in the top left hand corner, your weapon that you are equipped with in the top Right. Your heath is on your bottom left and you ammo count in on the bottom Right. I found with jumping that you have to very patient, you need to have a good sense of distance as sometimes I would miss the platform completely and fall to the bottom. Its challenging, but not difficult and might take a couple of goes to get the hang of it. I found that using the controller rather than the joy cons have a better effect.

REVIEW: Immortal Redneck (Nintendo Switch)

Graphically everything comes up bright and colourful with the Egyptian style shining through. The enemies are well designed and they all have their individual moves and attacks that are well animated. The sound and effects are solid and they go well with the game. From shooting your guns to your characters using expletives from time to time, it’s all very crisp.

Over all – this is a solid first-person shooter to casually pick up play whenever you have some spare time then simply jump back into when you are free again.

While it is challenging, it’s not overly hard as you will level up your skills and repeat the process until you are strong enough to go further. You just have to be patient.
