    Furwind is a great platformer with puzzle-like levels and a grand adventure. With cute characters, a fun soundtrack, and pleasing graphics, this is one to give a try.

    Furwind definitely hits some high notes, but also falls short in other regards. The platforming is solid and outside a few abilities that missed the mark, combat is satisfying. Level design and variety are wonderful, continuing to stay fresh throughout. However in contrast, the enemy design was a let down due to a small pool of enemies. Fun boss battles and the cutest protagonist ever do help to mitigate the shortcomings resulting in a brisk and enjoyable experience.

    Furwind is a great choice if you’re looking for an old-school 2D platformer. It is quite simple and short, and it does miss that something special, but we’ve enjoyed it.

    If you’re looking for a pixel-styled platformer, you can certainly do worse than Furwind. Though pretty to look at, It’s a bit generic and could do more to introduce variety throughout the game. That doesn’t mean it’s not enjoyable, though. It’s got its share of issues, but if you can overlook them for a few hours, you’ll find a reasonably good time.

    With gorgeous pixellated graphics and a charming, uplifting soundtrack, Furwind is a delight to behold. Unfortunately, with some awkward controls and a lack of any original, engaging ideas, it falls short of being truly great, if only because the Switch is already home to some stellar platforming games that comfortably outshine this workmanlike effort. Still, if you’re a fan of the genre and you're looking for something to keep you busy during the summer months, Furwind’s impressive stage variation and challenging difficulty make it worth a look.

    A romp through a cursed forest playing as a cute little critter. It’s not doing anything groundbreaking or new by any means, but what’s here is worthwhile for a palette cleanser between other platformers.

The game is short but it takes time to unlock everything or find all the secrets. I get Hollow Knight vibes from the game. Music and the sound experience are perfect balance with each other. The game control feeling can be a bit difficult in the beginning, but you will learn fast how to manage it.

    I give the game 8/10 and recommend it if you like platform games a la Hollow Knight. The game is suitable for both children and adults. The game paths go pretty fast to play through. The game runs well on both the handheld- and the docked- mode.

    I´m still not sure about this game. After I finished the video about it, I spent a few more minutes.. about 45 on it. And the game is cute..I´m still not sure about this game. After I finished the video about it, I spent a few more minutes.. about 45 on it. And the game is cute.. And this is probably why I´m still keeping it on my switch. On the first try I thought its bad. But its not so bad as I thought. I would say it for younger generation, then I´m, but its OK. I believe there will be a lot of people liking it. After the hour or so on the game, I´m not sure if I will come back to it again in the future. There are better games. But... even it looks retro, which I dont like to much... its still cute... :-)
