April 11th: The Sour Patch Kids Take Over

April 11th: The Sour Patch Kids Take Over

Many genius ideas evolve from old classics.  Take Sour Patch Kids for example, someone decided that Gummy Bears were good, but what if we put a little bit of sour sugar coating on them?  The result was an instant iconic snack.

Admit it, you have played with your Gummy Bears and Sour Patch Kids.  I would bet that we all have, at one point or another, and that is okay.  I have pit the bears against the evil kids from the sour patch.  As damage was inflicted, I took a bite severing an arm, a leg, or instant decapitation.  Of course I don’t do that anymore…grown up rules frown upon such behavior.

Forget Grown up rules, on April 10th, we can now play World Gone Sour on the PlayStation Network ($4.99) and Xbox Live Arcade (400 Microsoft Points) on April 11th.  The games soundtrack features artists such as Method Man and celebrity narrations by Creed Barton.

The plot is described below:

“Based on the popular Sour Then Sweet® candy Sour Patch Kids®, World Gone Sour takes players on a journey from the perspective of a lost piece of candy finding its way to its ultimate destination – the human stomach. Gamers take on the role of a miniature Sour Patch Kid in a stylized human-sized world, guiding the hero through unique locations such as the sticky floors of a movie theater and a spooky shack. Players will need to use a combination of jumps, twists and puzzle-solving to negotiate and overcome larger than life obstacles.”

What are your thoughts?  Will this game decay into obscurity like a bad cavity?  Or will this adventure grab hit the sweet spot and calm that craving for our sour and sweet friends?
