Excessive Trim (PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, X/S, PC)

Play as a mean alien as you drive around your buzzsaw equipped UFO and mow down cows in Excessive Trim.  It’s available on all current consoles and PC, but reviewed on PS4 here.

The graphics are presented in four colors, like an old computer or handheld system, and you can unlock more palettes the farther you get.  Control your spaceship with the L stick as you hover around a randomly generated farm and scroll forward vertically.  Press the button to activate your buzzsaw to cut down fields, boxes, and even stampeding cows.  Every so often you’ll come across a stand where you can choose a power-up.  But these powers come at a cost, too. For instance, you can get more hit points, but you’ll slow down.  Avoid objects like rocks, buildings, and tractors.  If you get hit too many times, it’s Game Over and must start from the beginning on your next run.  They really don’t tell you how to play this game, but from what I could figure out, this one wasn’t very much fun or engaging.

Kid Factor:

Excessive Trim is rated M for Mature with ESRB descriptors of Blood, Use of Drugs, and Violence. You can saw through cows that explode into pixelly red, so there’s the blood and violence.  On the top left side of the screen is a picture of your alien smoking drugs, and I don’t know WHY they put that in there.  So yeah, this game is best for adults only but I really wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

  1. Sounds like a mini-game within Destroy All Humans!.
