    It’s charming. It’s funny. It’s easy on the eyes. But sometimes it is not as precise as you wish it would be.

    Taking all the good with the bad, Wooden Sen’SeY proves to be a good game, even if it doesn’t manage to climb to the top of what has become a highly competitive genre.

    Still, "Wooden Sen'Sey" is cheap, good-spirited and chuckle-inducing. It's a charming addition to the Wii U eShop that lays the groundwork for an even more ground-breaking sequel (please?)
  4. While far from perfect, there are more than enough ideas here for Upper Byte to build into something special. For the time being, wait for an eShop sale. [Apr 2014, p.80]

    Playing Wooden Sen’Sey, we see clearly good potential for a sequel but the developers will have to improve in different ways: physics, fighting system, overall policy of the control scheme and, please, do something for that background music.

    Wooden Sen'Sey is a faithful disciple of the traditional platforming school, but it lacks hardening to rival the genre's masters.

    Wooden Sen'SeY shows some ambition but unfortunately, its badly implemented control schemes and physics make it extremely difficult and frustrating to play. Sadly, if these problems were addressed, this would be a much more attractive game but it's impossible going around such pressing control issues when the controls are so difficult to use.
