Pablo is a champion


LocoCycle is a pretty insane game. In some ways it's wrong, in others, it's oh so right. But one thing's for sure -- if you love cheesy action films and want something completely different in a videogame, Loco might be your huckleberry.

Here are some tips to facilitate said craziness.

General tips (minor non-story spoilers below):

  • When in close combat situations, press A to switch targets. Use this to attack enemies that might be poised to strike, and to target specific foes that may be part of a sub-mission.
  • Upgrade your ability to interrupt attacks when throwing Pablo first. It's easily one of the best skills in the game, and it's extremely useful even later in the campaign, especially after you upgrade it to stun capability.
  • Next, upgrade your regeneration skill. This will be extremely useful during long boss fights since there are no health pickups. Once you pick up Pablo's regeneration ability, stand still without boosting or firing to use it.
  • Often times, it's more prudent to just stand still behind an enemy, take damage, and line up consistent shots. Rather than zoom around and get hit intermittently, sometimes it's best to just take them down as fast as possible instead of drawing it out.
  • You don't need to do every QTE -- they're mainly for boosting your score. Don't stress over them.
  • As missiles are coming at you, it's best to just stand still, then press the A button to grab and counter-throw them. Don't try to move around too much.
  • When it comes time to fix I.R.I.S., check in four directions of the d-pad to "find" new minigames. For the wire game, gently press both analog sticks together until the wire is just barely touching, and look for the blue light.
  • For the boss fight with the giant mech that's running alongside of you, you can only counter him by throwing back the car that's cut in half -- not the other vehicles or the buses. It's easy to get confused.
  • When fighting the scientists in the electric balls, tap the gas button to avoid their attacks. Don't go overboard with it, just keep your finger lightly on the button to dodge.
  • When fighting S.P.I.K.E. on the bridge, the last car will be the one you'll need to throw back at him. It'll be bouncing wildly -- line yourself up with it to avoid another round of attacks.
  • During the final fight with S.P.I.K.E. (you'll know it when you see it), use a jumping heavy kick to confirm, then a low heavy kick for a quick high damage 2-hit combo. It's the easiest way to defeat him.

Lococycle gets a permanent price reduction

Twisted Pixel's Lococycle is a rather polarizing game. Chris seemed to enjoy it. I, on the other hand, did not. Judging by the treatment that Microsoft's giving it, the general public appears to be just as divided. Major...more

LocoCyle heading to Steam and the 360 on Valentine's Day

Review: LocoCycle (Xbox One)

I've always had a soft spot for SpyHunter. Although Twisted Metal and other arena-based shooters are great in their own right, there's something special about an action racing game that lets you hit the open road. LocoCy...more

LocoCycle is more fun than it might initially look

For a while now, I've had the urge to play a Spy Hunter-like game. (But not, oddly enough, an honest-to-goodness, actual Spy Hunter -- trust me, I've tried.) I'm starting to look toward Twisted Pixel for a helping hand. Loco...more

LocoCyle is like Arkham meets Spy Hunter meets acid

After seeing Twisted Pixel's LocoCycle at multiple trade shows in the past, we were finally able to go hands-on with the game on the Xbox One. It's going to be a downloadable launch title when Microsoft's new console is released, with an Xbox 360 release to follow some time later. So how's the game? Fun! It's got the charm that makes all Twisted Pixel games enjoyable. more

PAX: LocoCycle is looking sufficiently loco

The new Forza Horizon 2 cars are mostly vehicles you'll never drive in real life

The new batch of cars revealed for Forza Horizon 2 brings about a bit of a staunch reminder that open-world racing games aren't all that realistic. Let's face it -- there's a slim chance you'll ever be behind the wheel o...more
