Turnip Boy Robs a Bank (Brutal Vegetable Cute ‘Em Up)


Turnip Boy Robs a Bank (TBRB) is a sequel to Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion (minor spoilers ahead), a self-proclaimed rogue-like for people who hate rogue-likes, and I don’t know of a better way to describe this ball of chaos in video game form than that. After the protagonist Turnip Boy kills god (yes I am not joking you see god’s corpse in the background as the game starts) he teams up with the sentient pickle Dillitini (you have to play this game to believe it) to rob banks. Why? Not sure. Is it fun as hell? Absolutely.


If you’ve played Enter the Gungeon, imagine a stripped down version of that game with more humor and less unforgiving combat. The main way to progress is through quests, not necessarily “getting good” and beating the hardest bosses as soon as possible. Each run allows you to come back with money (because you’re robbing banks) and dump them into gun upgrades, stat upgrades, and black market purchases to make subsequent runs easier. If you vaguely like quest based top down shooters, get Turnip Boy Robs a Bank. It’s short, sweet and frankly a perfect little experience that will have you laughing out loud.
