Wii U Reviews
If you’ve ever watched more than a few minutes of the Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time, then you are aware of its wonderfully, absurd sense of humor. Sadly, Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW! doesn’t display the same playfulness of the series
For over 30 years Pac-Man has been chomping on ghosts, pellets and fruits in both the 2D and 3D realm. While his past platforming adventures failed to be as memorable as the arcade classic, as a companion piece to the Disney XD cartoon of the same name, Ghostly Adventures offers a fresh new plot
For well over a decade, SpongeBob and friends have been entertaining us with their idiotic antics and ridiculous plots. While it mimics the comical charm of the show, Activison’s SpongeBob SquarePants: Plankton’s Robotic Revenge is an unoriginal and repetitive trek through Bikini Bottom.
With added competition from Disney Infinity, Activision’s runaway bestseller Skylander series needed to evolve. Now, with Skylanders: Swap Force, we are introduced to 16 interchangeable characters, more robust gameplay and tons of addictive collectibles to declare it the freshest and most fun entry thus far.
In 1989, Capcom set a high standard for licensed platformers when they released DuckTales (woo oo)–sorry, I couldn’t help myself. With DuckTales Remastered, they’ve teamed up with WayForward (the team behind remakes such as A Boy and his Blob and Double Dragon Neon); but can they replicate the same magic that worked 24 years ago?
On the surface, Pwnee Studios’ Kickstarter project Cloudberry Kingdom appears to be like most platformers we’ve grown up playing, but its progressively challenging AI-generated stages allows it to stand out in a genre packed with unoriginal titles.
Released early last year on the 3DS eShop, Renegade Kid’s retro platformer Mutant Mudds was well received by both critics and players. Available now on the Wii U, Mutant Mudds Deluxe is the definitive experience that fans of the series have been longing for. It’s a pure, addictive, old school platformer that will evoke a nostalgic feeling for gamers who grew up in the 8-bit era.
