It’s about the adventures of Adam (yep, the guy from the Bible) and his faithful chum Ricky saving the world from Hitler and the Third Reich, who have happened to come across a time machine.
Adam & Ricky is a top-down pixel art shooter where our main character is the primordial man (at least according to the bible) and his faithful pig pet (don’t ask) and their adventures chasing Hitler and his minions. Gameplay-wise , the human, Adam, will be a ranged class and Ricky the filthy pig is going to be a melee oriented bruiser.
Since Adam has the positional advantage of being a ranged toon, Ricky will obviously be more tanky to withstand all the front line beating. He’ll also be somewhat more pissed off, which will obviously makes him more dangerous.
Since there are two characters that combine their skillset to progress throughout the game, the whole experience wil be local coop, with one player controlling a character each. If you haven’t got any friends, you can always play solo though!
Solo mode will be a bit like Donkey Kong. You will be able to switch characters at will, and the AI will take over the one you aren’t controlling to help out a bit. Don’t rely on it very much though, as it will be easily distracted and sometimes more of a nuisance tan a helping hand.
