  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. Ancients of Ooga is a game with a great premise, promising gameworld/mythology, and fun/unique gameplay. However, the repetitive nature of the levels/puzzles and the lack of any real complex puzzles make this otherwise great title tedious at times.
  3. 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 gives a unique twist to the platform genre but loses a lot of it's magic due to it's repetitive gameplay. The co-op is a let-down but this shouldn't stop platform fans from buying the game.

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. Full Review »
