Rise of Kong might be the worst game of 2023

October 17, 2023 by No Comments


Today, on the 17th of October, Skull Island: Rise of Kong released worldwide and similarly, some gamers have labeled this title a ‘complete scam’ after seeing it. In a series of clips and extended gameplay videos, we’re given a terrifying glimpse into the interior of this game, developed by ‘IguanaBee’ and published by GameMill.

This is not good at all.


The fall of Kong?

On July 20, we covered the leak that revealed Rise of Kong, and back then it seemed like a ridiculous project, boasting weird graphics and not much of a backstory. Now that Rise of Kong has hit the market, we can officially say that it is the frontrunner for the worst game of 2023, possibly surpassing LOTR: Gollum, which the developer stopped making games for.

In an extended gameplay video released a few hours ago, we get a long look at the game – and even a cursory glance reveals some pretty damning stuff:

  • The move is terrible, Kong leaps out of the scene, fails to make contact with the ledges, and jumps like he’s weightless.
  • Combat is all about spamming a single button in the enemy’s direction and Such is the case Get to know them
  • The cutscenes are strange and have almost no animations
  • Almost every environment Kong enters is empty, barren, and bland
  • In one scene, the player spends about 30 seconds running and jumping between rocks and inexplicably falling off of them, following a sequence of essentially nothing.

See for yourself:

If it’s not the worst game in 2023, it’s a solid contender for that number one spot.
