Those of us who were brought up with a NES controller in our hands tend to have a special love for the old platforming adventure games. No matter who we are in real life, we can all relish in our past exploits in saving numerous princesses. Cloudberry Kingdom, a classic run and jump hero platformer from Ubisoft, fulfills every need for platformer junkies. Then, they take it a step further, breaching new territory in a tried and true genre.
The game looks great visually, with funny little characters and nicely designed cartoon platforms and backgrounds. The music is a playlist of fun, light, and danceable techno tracks, nicely selected for the game’s atmosphere. Players can fully customize their little hero, from the color of their capes and jumpsuits, well-groomed facial hair, to the choice between having devil horns, a knight’s helmet, or a brain for a head. There is not a glut of options for customization, but there is enough for it be a welcome addition.
