The creators have made hundreds of prototypes of enemies. They gathered valuable feedback and will only left the best and most fun ones in the game. In the game you will encounter many different intelligent enemies. Each one will have its own abilities, strengths and weaknesses.You will often have more than one approach to defeat an enemy, so each player will fight in a unique style.
The environment must be interesting and challenging in its own way. And the creators wanted to maximize interactions between you, the environment, the cows and the enemies. With that in mind they started designing on paper according to your skills and the enemies that you will encounter. During your journey, you will go trough many different terrains – each with its unique new challenges, enemies and interactables – so every time you will have to find the correct strategies and abilities in order to be able to progress.
Your character will be wise but also funny.

In the game you will constantly unlock new tactical and combat abilities and then further upgrade them in a way that will shape your unique approach to beating the game.
“The cows are the cherry on the Moo Lander cake!” said the creators of Moo lander. They have spend a lot of time in developing the cow AI and in the game you will need to master your skills in order to match their superior intelligence. While some of the cows are too scared and always trying to outrun you to safety, others are fearce beasts that will charge you, stab you, stomp you, electrify you and try pretty much everything to defeat you – each cow battle will be unique experience in which you need to use all your skills and the environment in order to survive. But keep in mind the cows also know their surroundings and know where to camp and where to lure you, so be careful and expect glorious cow battles, that will be the ultimate tests of everything you learn before!
With battles being so hilariously epic, the creators just had to bring multiplayer to the table. Or should I say to the couch – they had to give us the option to play as a cow! You can expect four couch-multiplayer modes (two of them are already available in the demo): Fight The Cow – Players can fight for dominion with up to 2 Landers and 2 Cows; Two Landers VS AI Cow – Up to 2 players can try and defeat the near unbeatable mighty AI cow; Chase the cow – 1 VS 1 challenge in which the fastest one wins; Survive the waves – A co-op adventure for up to 2 Landers and 2 cows.

I was excited about the game trailer it look simply amazing. I saw the pictures and they don’t let me thinking, that this game could maybe be bad. The pictures and trailer give a view of a creative game, where I fight against enemies, catch cows and simply enjoy the beautiful 2D Platformer. That’s why I think Moo Lander could gone be a good, maybe a very good game.
