While the game borrows some of the best elements from Mario and Kirby (among others), it also suffers from some nasty issues of its own. The unpredictable nature of the game's obstacles and artificial difficulty do more harm than good, resulting in a product that's only good for short sessions rather than simply being an overall great game.
Bloo Kid 2 is a fun and competent platform game which perfectly captures the spirit of late 80s and early 90s platformers...perhaps a bit too much, as it resorts to blatant copying of some of the biggest names in the field.
It's a horribly generic platformer that tries hard to be some kind of homage to the genre's greats, and ends up being a pale imitation of them all. Sure it's cheap as chips on the Nintendo 3DS, but that doesn't mean its worth the time investment.
