    Wuppo excels at being a solid and cute title. The presentation makes it seem like it was made for kids, but players of all ages will find it endearing. The musical score is enjoyable, and the game's quirkiness makes the story work. The gameplay, from boss fights to puzzles of varying types, works thanks to its simplicity and good pacing. This is definitely a labor of love from the two-man development team, and it is definitely recommended for gamers of all types.

    I can’t imagine that anyone would be blown away by any one part of Wuppo. The art is wonky, the combat is simple, and the lore is kind of silly. But it’s when these aspects combine that Wuppo’s charm begins to appear, and it’s a charm that can’t be stifled by any flaws.

    Wuppo is the kind of game you kinda want to remove from your memory, just to be able to play it again, and enjoy it like the first time. Despite its childish graphics and some gameplay flaws, Wuppo is a truly entertaining, light-hearted experience.

    Wuppo is a platform game with its own distinct look and feel. The story that is told throughout the game is fun, and so is the interaction with the world. There are some minors annoyances while playing, but those do not spoil the fun to be had in Wuppo.

    Wuppo is a fun game with a lot of heart, made all the more enjoyable by the clearly evident fact that it has been meticulously and lovingly created. Wuppo is a game with character; it knows exactly what it wants to be and what it wants to do, and it accomplishes those tasks elegantly and creatively.

    Wuppo is a coin with two faces. On one side we have the simplicity of the plot and the rough design, on the other side we have an adventure with goals that can be found only with the right amount of observation and challenging bosses. Which side will you pick?

    The game takes the approach of building a relatively small but highly detailed, rigorously simulated world. It prospers with this approach, instead of building a large world and filling it with copy-and-pasted material. Unfortunately, it bogs down often, either due to its poor interface or its puzzles that force you to spend way too much time trying to figure out what the developers where thinking when they designed them. In the end though, the positives outweigh the negatives, making Wuppo a game that is worth playing for the opportunity to explore its beautiful and immersive world.

Where a lot of indie games aim to be a touching emotional experience, Wuppo aims to provide nothing but fun and laughs. This is simply a really fun game that any lover of platformers and metroidvania's (and even oldschool Nintendo RPG's like Paper Mario) will definitely enjoy. Full Review »

    I've been following this game ever since its announcement by Youtuber "Greencream" almost 7(!) years ago. The game has changed significantlyI've been following this game ever since its announcement by Youtuber "Greencream" almost 7(!) years ago. The game has changed significantly since then, but it still kept the humour and cute style. It's a great metroidvania style game that starts out a little slow, but gets amazingly fun after the first hour or so. It has one of the most creative and unique gameworlds I've ever seen, accompanied by terrific music.

    Pros:
    - Unique world with colourful locations and creatures
    - Great music
    - Lots of humour in the dialogues and animation of the characters

    Cons:
    - Starts a little slow
    - Bosses can be a little unfair (trial & error)
