- Summary: Enter the wondrous world of Wuppo! Fight numerous enemies, collect countless items, and solve immersive puzzles, all while exploring the detailed history of the world in your quest to find a new home.
Jan 18, 2017Wuppo 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.
Nov 16, 2016I 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.
Oct 26, 2016Wuppo 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.
Nov 11, 2016The 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.
Nov 23, 2017Wuppo 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 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.
- Unique world with colourful locations and creatures
- Great music
- Lots of humour in the dialogues and animation of the characters
- Starts a little slow
- Bosses can be a little unfair (trial & error)… Expand

Where a lot of indie games aim to be a touching emotional experience, Wuppo aims to provide nothing but fun and laughs.

A charming Adventure
Wuppo is a twin stick, platforming adventure game where you play as a wum
The game starts with you getting kicked out of your wumhouse for getting ice-cream all over place…
You initially have to make your way back to find out you’re being evicted and you have to go find a new home..
Finding a new home is the plot of this game…
The first section of this about 6 hour game is easily my favorite, the game is full of charm in its writing and its characters.. its dialog choices ooze with sarcasm and subtly clever and hilarious opportunities to interact with other characters in the game…
Constantly having me smile at how characters react to me in different situations…
And it feels effortless
The gameplay isn’t bad either…
Here you’re given a gumball shooter at the start.. This is your weapon, though you’ll unlock more as the game progress…and you’re introduced to enemies, platforming, bosses, and puzzles while you’re trying to make your way back to the wumhouse…
This is a really cleaver tutorial level as enemies aren’t too much of a threat, there are little side objectives you have to do to unlock key items to take on this levels main boss and get back home and this is the most platforming intensive section in the entire game with a decent challenge with its mix of platforming and timing..…
A great way to get you comfortable with this games mechanics... as being a twin stick shooter you’re jumping with the shoulder buttons..
Every boss in this game is really cool though they are feel pretty much the same, it’s just dodging attacks and shooting gumballs until they’re dead…
there are also films for you to collect around the world to give you the history of this games world and rewards you with life points to increase your characters hp..
Once back to the wumhouse, the game introduces the idea of changing outfits and using disguises... as there are items you get from characters and can buy in shops with coins you pick up off of enemies and for completing jobs… which is what you’ll be doing a lot in this games second chunk.. Which for me was my least favorite as you’re running around trying to earn enough credits to get onto the next section of the game... and to do this you have to go through the monotony of being a productive citizen of this city, you have to do jobs like taking care of enemies in the sewer, debating, or delivering newspaper for what feels like forever…
Earning cash to purchase required items to proceed through the game..
These items can do things like help you not take damage in certain story related water... but they can also reduce the damage you take from enemies…
Which thankfully don’t seem to be too much of a threat here…
Boss enemies though, definitely a threat and can take multiple tries...
Though there’s usually a paint bucket for you to hop into and save before you start one, so traveling back is never a hassle…
The challenge aside from the bosses is in figuring out what items you need, and then setting a plan to execute…
It’s in immersing yourself into the world and living amongst the different characters which is what makes wuppo such a special experience…
The game did start losing steam for me because of its middle chunk…
But wuppo is a charming and immersive experience full of heart worth checking out for the puzzle adventure types…
The world of wuppo feels surprisingly alive
I give Wuppo
a 7/10… Expand
