And yet I find myself struggling to enjoy the beat downs that Coffee Crisis brings to the genre. There’s a goofy sense of humor, filled with many nods and references that gaming and pop culture nerds will pick up on. However, the story that strings everything together isn’t much to latch onto and is bundled with a difficulty that feels a little too wild at times. In addition to some annoying design choices that often get in the way, Coffee Crisis can end up being overly repetitive and loses its charm very quickly.
