Script: Hey Nick here talking about the indie game Cloudberry Kingdom available on PS3, Steam, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PS Vita. Its always been a game I've had my eye on since it came out, but never got an actual chance to play it until now. I watched some Let's Plays on it, and I wasn't sure if it was right for me. I love platformers, but this one seems too chaotic for my taste.
I opened up the game, and I'm greeted by some playthrough of what I'm guessing is a level in the game. It's a lot to take in because look at it! There's so much going on in this small level as you run to the right to the end of the level. It looks hard, and while I wasn't expecting this game to be easy I'm just not sure what to think.
The best thing to do is to just jump in, but first! You can create a character. I gave my character a beard to try to hide all the fear in his facial expressions. I play the first couple of levels, and it's pretty simple. Jump over things, dodge enemies, and what not. After a bit the game started throwing in different character elements that I really liked. From having the ability to double jump too rolling around on this ball shaped stone. There was even some levels that had you in a space ship.
The game starts getting harder, but there's one thing I notice about Cloudberry Kingdom. It's all about timing, and sure that's common in video games, but this is different. It gets to the point where if you time things right it feels like you're gliding threw butter with a warm knife. One little mistake can throw the entire level off, but luckily you can quickly restart.
Levels keep getting harder and harder, but if you can get the timing down you're golden. The levels are set up so perfectly to just run into. Most levels can be done, and mostly have to be done in one continuous motion. The way to beat these levels is to just keep moving. I actually felt pretty good about myself because it looks like I'm really good at video games plowing through these levels. Each level looks like I had to memorize every inch of the level, and that's not the case at all. I even consider the level editing in this game to be some of the best I've seen in gaming. Even though I'm guessing the developers just drew a path the player needs to go, and then place a bunch of intimidating things around the path.
That all being said the game is still very hard. Just not as hard as it looks. You do have the ability to spend the diamonds you pick up in every level. You can purchase a video of someone beating a level too having a path labeled on the screen of what you need to do. Be careful though because these things come with a price.
The game also features other modes, and the ability to play with friends. I played some of the other modes, and they're fun. The main game is where the meat is though. Didn't get a chance to play with friends, but it looks like a good time. Overall I really recommend this game for platformer fans. Cloudberry Kingdom does a great job throwing in new player mechanics, and interesting levels.
