  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] From the creators of Cloning Clyde comes a new epic adventure Ancients of Ooga! Eat, chant, and even puke your way through the highly comical, primeval land of Ooga. You meet, befriend, and finally acquire seven zany Oogani tribes. Uncover their lost ancient powers, and exploit their abilities and lead them in a revolt against the tyrannical Boolis. This is classic platforming and puzzle solving with a novel eat/carry/puke inventory management component. Over fifty amazing levels, excellent multiplayer, plus, narcotic slugs that make you loopy.

  1. With its twisted humour and mutated style lending a pleasantly Oddworld vibe to proceedings, this is a crafted effort for those of us with a tendency to mutter that they don't make 'em like they used to. Apparently they do.
  2. If you're looking for a fun and interesting puzzle-based platform game for your 360, Ancient of Ooga is a worthy option. The combat and sometimes unnecessary tutorials might bring it down a notch but thankfully, its concept and quick-play feel more than makes up for those short-comings. Again, if you are in need of some enjoyment after a long day in the sun, you can't go wrong with this one.

    A lengthy puzzle platformer that hearkens back to the simpler days of 16-bit gaming. Younger players, in particular, will enjoy the lighthearted humor and simple challenges.

    Ancients of Ooga's winning moments are playful and charming, but its low points will put you to sleep.
  5. Its best moments make it well worth sampling. Just don't be surprised if it somehow feels like less than a meal despite its 10-hour playtime. [Aug 2010, p.83]
  6. While it is clearly a nice game, Ancients of Ooga doesn't really do anything interesting enough to get beyond being a nice game into being a must have.
  7. It is hardly a bad game by any means, but its limited appeal will only interest long-time fans of the genre or younger kids looking to experience something different.

    A fun little puzzle/platformer that shouldn't be missed. Fans of the sleeper Live title Cloning Clyde will want to check this one out. Graphics are good, but run a little framey. Still, the puzzle based gameplay wins it over. I simply love how you can take over other characters mid-games to solve puzzles. Expand

    The fact that game has no meaning and stupid
    The tradition of the Crash, but in a very stupid
    Do not advise buying one ... And sounds which
    have no meaning and fees as if it will not understand anything ?! Expand
