JamesDale And PeakotIf you are going to nab all the fowls off the roost, make sure you leave no man and his chicken behind. Because once said farmer is armed with his shotgun and magic feather, he will team with the unlikely sidekick of a chicken sporting a few head-smacking powers of its own. Lock and load - it's time to take care of the Coyote Clan once and for all in Juicy Beast's action platformer Dale and Peakot.

If you are getting a strange sense of deja vu here, it's not because your synapses grabbing at straws. JIG has looked at this game before, back in December, and found it to be terrific. But I have to disagree, because back then the game was still in its beta phase. Now it's complete and it is terrific. Which means back then it was less than terrific. Or it was terrific and now it's perfect. But it can't be perfect, because that would just unleash a hoard of comments about its imperfections. I need to lie down...

Dale is a farmer, armed with buckshot, a hat and a determination to recover his stolen chickens. Peakot, controlled by a magic feather Dale finds, is a chicken that can stun enemies, make platforms appear, freeze into shields of blocky ice and more. Together they traverse through woodlands, snowscapes, caverns and more to rescue the stolen chickens, fighting coyotes, giant insects and what one assumes to be demented groundhogs. Dale is controlled with the keyboard, while Peakot is directed using the mouse, creating an odd challenge of dexterity... especially when the screen floods with enemies while you have to solve a puzzle.

Dale And PeakotAnalysis: I could wax lyrical, but Dora's review of the beta covers most of the ground. Still, the final game has a lot of changes, and quite possibly more stuff I have missed. Stunned enemies now can't hurt you, infinite spawn zones (sections where enemies keep spawning until you solve a puzzle) are clearly marked, several levels have been overhauled or are brand new; the overall game experience is a lot smoother and perhaps a bit less frustrating. I won't call it easier, but I spent less time shouting at the whole of the final game than I did at the few beta levels I tried.

Dale and Peakot is the kind of game I'd show to people when they want to poo-poo web games or sniff at the idea of Flash as a platform. It looks exceptional, it is well-designed and it clearly has seen a lot of blood, sweat, trial and error. I could nitpick on some things; the combat feels a bit clumsy and one boss fight is just devoid of any pattern recognition when it comes to his raining bombs. But these things are quickly put aside with excellent platforming, fun level design, nice animations and the kind of game that Juicy Beast could sell if it wanted to.

It was good until I go to the end of the third level (I think it was the end).

the part with the rising stakes

I couldn't move and wound up dying for absolutely no good reason.

The fact that the bird autoreturns caused me many moments of intense frustration.
Also, why do I have to spend points to respawn during a boss fight? I don't believe anybody can beat those bosses easily (or even with concentration) on one try.

Good idea, but bad execution.

Some help would be appreciated - the game demands a new version of flash, unlike any other recent browser toy I've played with - upon trying to acquire it I allowed mozilla the requisite permissions, only to have nothing happen upon browser restart, and now a 'download error' every time I try to reacquire the update.

I'd like to play this

Is there a source to manually download and force the install of a flash version?

This game is fun, but a walk through for the achievements would be great, like the chest locations and how to get to them. I find that once I receive a new ability it's good to revisit other levels, but it doesn't always help.

@PlasmaSheep:

The bosses are hard, but possible with one life. That makes them all the more fun.

There is usually quite a few eggs on the boss levels if you look for them

Fun! A lot of the bugginess that drove me away from the early beta is gone. Lots of challenges buried in there, but also a nice casual platformer if you choose to just "play through". Five shrooms!

Awe man, I can't get past the final boss. I can only get 1500points, need 1600 to re-spawn, what a terrible joke.

Really fun game! I enjoyed the demo and this just improves upon it in pretty much every way.

I'm currently completely stuck, though. :'D

I just got the bronze boots and I have no idea how to get out of the room.

@Sveeds

The price of respawn goes down with something. I think it's hearts, but I can't seem to confirm this when I just started a new game. I'd collected all the chests up to the final boss, and I could respawn for 1200 eggs.

Kind of an odd choice on the developer's part, but you can't buy a respawn while fighting the final boss if you haven't collected enough _s by that point.

@C.Olimar

The bronze boots let you see through fake walls in a small radius around Peakot. You'll need to run her around the walls to find a hidden area in order to get out.

If you need more help, here's where the fake wall is:

Go straight right from the chest with the boots, dodge under the spike-wheel, and jump up the ledge. It's to the right.

@qoalabear:


I think it is a cumulative of all the achievements because I had all the chests, hearts and some other achievements and still my re-spawn cost was 1600. But after going through some levels and completing the egg challenges it went down to 1300.

OOOOOOH I get it. XD That... could potentially be something to fix!

When going through level 12, I completely skipped the bottom half of it just by hopping back up and over the fake flooring near the beginning. Thus, I COMPLETELY MISSED where you're supposed to get the bronze boots! Thus I went on to level 13 and got the bronze boots from where you would normally get the silver boots, becoming stuck in that room with no way to fix the wolf statue. Hehe. Sequence breaking ftw?

For the number of points required to respawn:

Points = 2000 - (number of coins gotten)*100

I just finished the game and it was good. Better than I expected and way better than most of the platformers out there. Congratulations to the team.

Of course the 'humanoid' villain will turn into a giant head with hands in the background. Reminds me of Oracle of Seasons. Dark Dragon was so hard.

in level 8 (the third snow level)? I've looked everywhere I can think of, but no luck. It's the only level I'm still missing a treasure chest.

Go up using the mushroom and open the door using the cog and lever (hope you know where i mean at this point). Once you've gone over the top, and have just gone BEHIND the two gunners, there is a secret passageway on the right wall. Head is in there. Body is a lot further in the level.

Heh...
The last boss made me smile because:

He is obviously modeled after the last boss of wario land 3 (his specific attacks are different though; if he catches you, you die automatically).
Not to mention that bobo is a common clown name, and in WL3, the last boss is a clown (but I don't think his name is bobo).

Now that i think about it, I'm pretty sure that they took more than that from WL3

Amazingly fun game!

The funny thing about the last boss:

It's obviously modeled after the last boss from Wario Land 3 (who was a clown - hence the name bobo). It has different attacks though.

Actually, now that I think about it, I think they took a lot more from Wario Land 3

Amazingly fun game!

ok, i will explain this all for everyone. first off, if you have trouble playing the game, try it on regular internet explorer, and definately accept downloading, otherwise nothing will work.

The coins are the key to a cheaper respawn cost. for each one you have the overall cost is decreased by 100, so say you had 5, your respawn would now be 1500 points, enough to respawn on the final boss.

I will say this though, you can be every boss without respawning. the best piece of advice for collecting everything would be to get gold versions of all peakots equipment. this will make the 20000 per level much easier.

for the x15 multiplyer, you want to do it on the 2nd ice level if i remember, but the important thing is planning.

if you just look around nice and hard you will find all the coins, all the chests, and everything else, just make good use of peakots ability with the boots to see through illusions.

Where in the WORLD do you find the boots and the guns I can't find them ANYWHERE!! BUT that may be because I stopped trying to progress at the big fortress on the map to go back and find the rest of the stuff.

@Binky: I think most of them are either in the fortress, or use the boots found in the fortress to reveal the way forwards. I seem to recall there's ONE gun piece you can get before that, but... carry on a bit more; a lot of this game's secrets are based on new things opening up paths in old levels.

Controls are customisable, so to whoever finds this unplayable because of the controls, I think it's an unfair complaint

After playing the demo, this seems much more fun and satisfying, especially because of the various upgrades Peakot gets.

Just can't seem to get the last boss done. Maybe if I get 3 more coins.

Here's how to beat the 1st boss (the bear)

To beat the bear, you only have to destroy enough boxes to let the chicken pass and energy shot his ice cream. At that point the spikes will come down and you will be able to push the switch so the platform rises then the crates turn metal and he pushes them at you. Dodge them until you can shoot him then repeat the process until his his beaten. I hope that's clear enough.

Now that I've contributed, I know it's been asked a lot but HOW THE HELL do you attach the statue heads to their bodies? It's really a head scratcher for me, thanks.

I think all of the gun pieces are before the fortress, i'm not sure about the boots. If you have the bronze boots, you acn find the gun barrel in the level that all the dudes in the cave talk to you in

@Kykywox
You need the silver boots to move the statue heads.
