The worst of whichIn a village far, far away, a dull peasant named Rufus was living an ordinary life. Life was nice and happy in the village, until one day, awakened by some magical mistake, the Evil One started to spread his minions around town, performing hideous acts against the people. The worst of which was the kidnapping of Brunilde. She was torn from Rufus' hands and put in a prison at the Evil One's castle.

    Determined to win her back, Rufus made a helmet out of a bucket and picked a broom as a weapon. Everybody now calls him the CLUNKY HERO, but he might be the only hope to defeat the evil one that no one wants to call by name. Rufus is now on his journey to save his wife and the whole village!

    CLUNKY HERO is a story-driven, platformer metroidvania game, with a touch of RPG and tons of humor.

    If you'd love a platformer game where you have a strong storyline, can talk with characters, solve side quests, find and buy items, change weapons and wearables, with great hand-drawn-looking backgrounds, presented in a very comical way, then CLUNKY HERO might be the game of your dreams!

    That title was always going to be a challenge to shake. With so many good Metroidvanias out there, spilling out of Game Pass on a weekly basis, Clunky Hero can’t help but feel slow and cumbersome in comparison. It’s large, dense, and at its best when you’re exploring but, in every other way, Clunky Hero succumbs to its name.

    With so many Metroidvania games on the market, Clunky Hero will be drowned out by a multitude of far superior titles. Even if it has its moments, there is absolutely nothing that makes it stand out against similar, better-crafted titles like Hollow Knight or Monster Sanctuary. If anything, it’s worth picking up for a cheap laugh due to its lack of purpose.

    Clunky hero has some good things going for it. The story is generic but I did like the humour in it. The controls are excellent. Fighting isClunky hero has some good things going for it. The story is generic but I did like the humour in it. The controls are excellent. Fighting is straight forward. There is a big problem of balance. While the usual enemies are easy the boss are way too hard. The saving points aren't well placed and no autosave. Since you get NPC that ask for quest, returning to them is an absolute pain of backtracking. The fast travel system is too far apart and almost useless. So, while the realization is solid, the structure of the game is not so good. I give it 60% but I didn't have the heart to finish it. Expand
