It's A Wrap
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that It's A Wrap is an upcoming action puzzle game for Windows PCs. The action of the title is anchored around movie lots and sets, with the action star Johnny Rush performing stunts and action sequences for his latest movies. As a unique twist to the gameplay, players will take control of both the director of Johnny's films, and Johnny Rush himself, making sure that the star performs his stunts according to the script and the effects work perfectly. As the director, it's up to you to arrange and organize when the special effects will go off to make sure that the action sequence. Players with video editing experience will easily recognize the gameplay formatting here. Everything from rock slides to lava geysers to platform collapses are set up on separate timelines, allowing you to adjust when each effect will be triggered during the performance of the scene. Some of the clips are locked in place, presumably because they're expensive set items that can't be changed. Otherwise, virtually every other item can be shifted around to meet the timing of a scene. Once you call action, you then take over as Johnny, getting him to wall jump between platforms, slide down walls to safe areas, and hang on ledges to avoid obstacles. This is important because he'll need to dodge the hazards you previously set up to accomplish the tasks of his scene exactly the way it was written. If you're having trouble figuring out how to do this, a few limited hints are available for a scene, but those are more reserved for a last resort. There's nothing inappropriate to be found in the game. While there are some scenes where Johnny "dies" or gets crushed, there's no blood or gore shown, the visuals are cartoonish, and the director yells "cut" before any injury happens so things can be reset and reattempted.
