Cloudberry Kingdom is an extremely challenging platforming title that prides itself on its extreme difficulty and retro-style gameplay, but is the game actually fun to play? Let's find out!

Gameplay And Story:

Cloudberry Kingdom is hard, very hard, luckily that's not a bad thing as the game's controls are easy to learn and are very responsive. The game has many different modes, difficulties, and characters that can be unlocked by progressing further in the game and though there can be an unbelievable amount of traps and enemies on the screen during later levels, they all have set patterns so if you die it wasn't due to an impossible trap or an enemy chasing after you in an unfair way.

In this aspect Cloudberry Kingdom is very fair towards its players, though it might be to difficult for those who aren't accustomed to these kinds of games. The story mode's story is rather simplistic, but it's cool to hear Kevin Sorbo voicing the hero of the game!

Graphics:

The graphics in Cloudberry Kingdom are nice and have a great deal of variety in both level design, including backgrounds and stage layouts, as well as enemy and character models. The game won't wow you, but it's still a great looking title!

Sound And Music:

The sounds in Cloudberry Kingdom are simple yet effective and the voice acting of Kevin Sorbo is a nice touch, however the game does not have alot of variety in-terms of its soundtrack and the music can get somewhat repetitive.

Bottom-Line:

With amazing, yet tough as nails gameplay, intuitive controls, many game modes to unlock, and beautiful graphics the game is something we'd recommend. The only negative of the game was the limited soundtrack, but that's just a minor complaint.

Score: 8.5/10

I thought this game was a little too hard to fully enjoy, but it was still pretty good.

This game is a challenge and a half, but it's fun trying to see how far you can make it in the game! Review: Cloudberry Kingdom (Wii U eShop) 631737971

I have $15.56 in my Wii U eshop account so which would you guys recommend more? This or Puddle and Kung Fu Rabbit?

If you have friends to play with you get Cloudberry Kingdom.
If you're single player only, then get Puddle.

Kung Fu Rabbit is a generic, short, limited and easy MeatBoy-clone platformer. Its smelly smartphone roots are always present and you want to delete it from your Wii U sooner rather than later. That's just my guess. Wink
I actually enjoyed the game somewhat, but completed it 100% in 2 sessions of 2 hours each. Got absolutely no reason to boot it up for a third time. Just no replayability.

But now that it's on sale for $2.49 isn't a 4 hour long platformer like Kung Fu Rabbit worth the price even if the game is a little generic?

This game is a brain twisting, reflex testing game a real treat for fans of retro games! Very Happy

It's so cheap it couldn't harm anyone. If you like what you've seen in videos then snap it up.

I may have sounded harsh but that's because I bought a lot of games for 5 bucks (on WiiWare for example) with better value, imo.

Kung Fu Rabbit is pretty much in the middle of the barrel. Just because I think it's mediocre doesn't mean it's bad. It isn't outstanding but it doesn't do anything terribly wrong either, neither is it broken like Funky Barn or Spot The Differences! Party.

I'm not used to difficult retro games which is why I haven't beaten many of the games I have downloaded on the eshop yet, even so I still find the challenge enjoyable! Smile
Retro Gamer
I should download this game sometime it sounds like something I would enjoy a good deal!
