    As long as you're up for a challenge, Cloudberry Kingdom is well worth a download.

    Cloudberry Kingdom is a terrific gauntlet romp through classic gaming’s hallowed halls.

    Cloudberry Kingdom may initially petrify those who aren’t good at precision platformers.

    If platforming is your drug of choice then Cloudberry Kingdom is crack cocaine. [Nov 2013, p.71]
  5. “Just one more time”, is what you will be telling yourself many times once you get into the flow of Cloudberry Kingdom. And it is also a great (if you are into the whole sadism thing) party game. [September p.93]

    Solid craftsmanship combined with an endless amount of levels and a coat of crazy hardcore platforming make Pwnee Studios’ Cloudberry Kingdom a winner.

    I loathed Cloudberry Kingdom 20 levels in and never stopped. I am one of the people who, when greeted with the opening paragraph, would have stopped reading. However, all of the loathing I feel cannot blind me to what is an excellent game which works not only with itself, but perfectly with its intended audience.

    A colourful, addictive, and satisfying platformer, Cloudberry Kingdom is fantastic fun, and only gets more enjoyable when friends are added to the mix. Whether you enjoy quick stints of responsive platforming, or you’re determined to top the competitive online leaderboards, this endless supply of randomly generated content delivers plenty of difficult but delicious value.

    Cloudberry Kingdom is a fun and crazy game that lets you curse for days. Despite its simple graphical style and concept, the game manages to keep you interested for hours in both the campaign and the free play. Customize your character, give your friends a call and go on an adventure together. Dying is no fun, but seeing your friends suffer while gaming is an absolute joy.

    Cloudberry Kingdom is a good 2D platform game with the old school's essence. It's very funny, addictive and original.

    While its technically impressive level generator ultimately doesn’t add a great deal, the intense, straight-ahead gameplay demands to be played and replayed for hours on end. It’s a shame the developers couldn’t find a unique and distinctive voice for Cloudberry.

    Its simple visual department not withstanding, Cloudberry Kingdom is actually very good 2D platform game. Its exciting pace and the variety of game styles makes for a perfect example of the saying "easy to play, hard to master". It's 4 player game mode is equally chaotic and hilarious.
  13. Fun and frustrating in equal measure, Cloudberry Kingdom is both as delicious and ugly as a Picnic bar. [October 2013, p82]

    Stages quickly become repetitive thanks to the reused scenery and restrictions.
  15. This is a fairly immersive and rewarding experience, but more variety would help keep you hooked. The AI generated levels do make Cloudberry an interesting place, but the princess might have to wait a little longer than expected for you and Bob to get around to rescuing her.

    Probably the hardest platform game ever made. Try to enter if you dare, but if you want to relax yourself… don’t try this at home!

    The sheer lack of variety, despite two stages never being the same ever thanks to the brilliantly designed, random level-generating engine that Pwnee Studios has designed, leaves Cloudberry Kingdom feeling thin on content.

    Cloudberry Kingdom is a strong effort, but the lack of overall polish is impossible to overlook.

    Fun, fun, fun. Cloudberry Kingdom a randomized 2D platformer supplies hours after hours of compulsive excitement as the player jumps fromFun, fun, fun. Cloudberry Kingdom a randomized 2D platformer supplies hours after hours of compulsive excitement as the player jumps from obstacle to obstacle in countless quick (and, at times, frustratingly challenging) levels. Sure, there is little innovation, but try not to laugh the first time you are stripped to a circular stone, or find yourself on a pogo stick. The story mode, admittedly, loses part of its charm after a while (I'd say even before level 100) but the arcade never fails to shine: try Hero Rush for immediate fun. The arcade mode is, surprisingly, even more rewarding than the main storyline. Local multiplayer (up to four on the same console) is a definite plus. Full Review »
