My Friend Pedro: Going Bananas Never Looked This Flashy
My Friend Pedro is a violent 2.5D sidescrolling shooter that trades logic for stylish gunplay and non-stop action. You play as a man who wakes up with no memories so you start taking advice from a floating banana, because why not?! Next thing you know, you’re leaving piles of corpses everywhere you go.
The protagonist doesn’t have a name, but he does have a great arsenal of weapons and moves to get the job done. He can jump in the air and against walls and even roll to traverse through levels. He also has access to a twirling motion that allows him to dodge bullets. And of course, he can also slow down time to make dealing with multiple enemies and those positioned in tricky places a lot more doable. Oh, he can also kick baddies and debris at short range, and shoot at two targets at once when equipped with dual guns.
You can see these moves in action in the trailer below:
