    Marsupilami: Hoobadventure is one of those games that has no right to be as good as it is. Even after over 30 years of playing 2D platformers, it really took me back to why I love the genre with its intuitive and rewarding gameplay and cheerful presentation.

    In its plan to regain the confidence of players, Microids releases Marsupilami : Hoobadventures, a platform that is certainly inspired by Nintendo productions (Donkey Kong Country for example), but do it really well. Armed with a solid gameplay, the game offers really nice graphics. A really good surprise.

    While there’s some disparity between Marsupilami – Hoobadventure‘s target audience and its difficulty spikes, there’s no denying that there’s an excellent 2D platformer here, suitable for all ages. For fans of Crash Bandicoot and Rayman, you’ll find a lot to love in this charming and surprisingly beautiful adventure – even if you aren’t familiar with its long-tailed protagonist.

    A fun platform game that manages to offer pretty good entertainment without any real narrative material. Perfectly family-friendly, the game has the advantage of easily adapting to all ages without boring them. However, the experience would have gained by diversifying its level compositions in order to overcome its too-short lifespan.

    Marsupilami – Hoobadventure is classic 2D platformer adventure. Solid despite not being very innovative. Far too short, though.

    Marsupilami is a good entertainment, but it struggles to fully transport us to Palombia. Between its too short life span and its levels that all look the same, we expected much more "twists". However, the colorful universe and the gameplay associated with the genre make the game rather well adapted to the whole family.

    Marsupilami: Hoobadventure
    a Pretty decent platformer
    Hoobadventure is a 2 and a half hour long side scrolling 2d platformer and its actually kinda good..
    Here you play as Marsupilami, you dodge enemies and obstacles, collect fruit for exra lives, and find each levels secrets.. all of which is completely optional, you can just go forward if youd like, though by collecting feathers you do unlock bonus levels, heres its all pretty straightforward, just a straight up platformer, smash boxes, again, dodge obstacles, collect stuff, and the game progressively gets more and more challenging so it isn’t just some mindless kids game, it does get decently hard towards the end, each of the 3 sections finishes with a boss battle, of you racing the stage, trying to get from checkpoint to checkpoint until finally you can take down the boss, gain a gem and unlock the next area… each level also feels unique.. they are by no means spcial.. but I appreciate the ffort put into this game.
    Marsupilami: Hoobadventure wont blow you away, but it will surprise you with just how good it actually is.
    I give Marsupilami: Hoobadventure
    a 6.5/10
