After hearing about Klonoa i immediately did some research. Turns out it was an old Playstation one game and not just any old playstation one game a hugely admired one! After watching a few clips online i set out to buy it. Now this could be a problem, you can barely find it... ANYWHERE! But eventually i did and boy do i NOT regret it! From the very get-go the game is happy cutesy and decidedly quirky. Then when you start the level you get that old Mario Bros. feel. And that's no bad thing. If there is one thing that this game does it shows innovation. If all stripped down to bear it is just a normal platformer. Going along you can grab enemies by pressing either 1 or B depending on how you hold the controller. Then by jumping and then pressing the jump button again you can double jump. That comes into play ALOT throughout the game. You can then use that to do triple jumps and so on. The graphics are a HUGE improvement on the original but they wont win any medals, and the script, well it's either a very cheesy movie or written by a toddler. Klonoa is a lovable character unfortunately his little buddy Hewpoe isnt though! The gameplay is gold and you'll want to play through the criminally short 13 levels but dont expect anything from the story!
