Game Overview

Greek mythology, frantic races with shoot-’em-up action!

Set in a futuristic Odyssey, “The Next Penelope” is a fast paced action racing game with loud colors, an original story and a challenging risk-reward system.

As Penelope is looking for Ulysses through the galaxy, the player is free to explore the planets in any order. Each world features unique situations, races, even bosses, and new permanent abilities to enhance Penelope’s spaceship.

Weapons can be mixed and used at any time, but all these abilities cost vital energy, so the player is very powerful and close to death at the same time!

If you’ve played a MicroMachines game, you’ll feel right at home with the controls! (An alternative control scheme is available for newcomers as well.)

Special bonus missions to extend your journey after beating the main game are available then battle with your friends as Penelope’s suitors, who are battling each other for glory in a local 4 players mode!

Also, HD rumble support!

At the end of the day, The Next Penelope isn’t a racing game. It is an adventure game that happens to use racing as one of its core mechanics. There are many little things that you need to keep in mind to nail down a challenge. Strategy is the magical word here, and you shouldn’t forget when the game throws you yet another curve. The journey is over before you know, which is a slight shame, as I was hoping for it skew a bit longer. Of course, it comes down to what a game does with its running time. In that respect, I couldn’t be happier. -NintendoWorldReport

The Next Penelope may be quite a short experience but it’s one that will challenge your skills and dazzle you at the same time. Fans of the classic ’80s series Ulysses 31 will appreciate the excellent adaptation of Homer’s Odyssey, while those of you who like your gaming to be fast and intense are sure to be pleased by the thrilling racing, engaging shooter sections and overall variety in the experience. The amusing four-player mode picks up some of the slack when it comes to longevity; the short nature of the solo campaign is the solitary black mark in The Next Penelope’s copybook. That aside, this is a truly amazing indie title and one that deserves to do well on the Switch eShop. -Nintendo Life

The Next Penelope brings back the classic overhead racing formula in a fun, exciting, and surprisingly varied way but its limited single player content makes it a somewhat less than stellar Odyssey. -Video Chums

In short, a glass half full and half empty, for a rather demanding indie which knows how to surprise and excite in any way. Of course, if only it had lasted a little longer. -Everyeye.it
