    The game itself is rather nice, with pleasing graphics and interesting music. However, the Jump controls are rather lazy, and really kills the game. Once you jump, you can't change directions. Since the prinny dies the moment it gets touched by almost anything in the game, it's just unfair. Hit an enemy? Dead. Landed on a statue? Dead.

Once you jump, you can't change directions. Since the prinny dies the moment it gets touched by almost anything in the game, it's just unfair. Hit an enemy? Dead. Landed on a statue? Dead. The difficulty is quite high, but one of the things that make these kinds of games fair is missing. POWER UPS. There is not a single power up at all. Besides that, the prinny only has one attack. It was a game with lots of potencial. Another thing to slap it in the face is it's length. With less than 15 levels in the game, it's very very short. In the end, it's a game with a lot of interesting promises, but everything just feels lazy, and incomplete. If you really want to find a good old-school platformer, go for Henry Hatsworth in a puzzling adventure for the DS. Much better. Collapse

  1. Prinny is an absolutely charming, funny and downright fun handheld gem we wish popped up on the PSP more often. This is a side-scrolling platform game with a lot to offer those gamers that appreciates an enjoyable, bite-sized adventure that is close to giving a certain Italian plumber some competition.

    Unfortunately, thanks to the unwieldy controls and poor design choices, Prinny bombs. [Mar 2009, p.81]
  3. Prinny's a simple throwback title for gamers who simply like to have fun with their games. Good gameplay, graphics, and sound, along with a decent challenge make this one worth picking up.
