    It's worth noting that this game is quite short; you could easily beat it in one sitting, assuming you're sitting for 2-3 hours. As someone who likes games that don't require a massive time investment, this didn't bother me too much, but if you're going in expecting something that'll tide you over until the release of Super Mario Odyssey — or even until next week, for that matter — this most definitely won't do the trick. Still, even with those flaws, I'd hesitate to say that Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island is bad, or not worth checking out. As I said, it's a solid 3D platformer, and it generally does what it wants to do fairly well. It's probably not going to be remembered with the same kind of reverence as its forebears, but for an afternoon, it'll be a pleasant way to pass the time.

    Having the right expectations with Skylar & Plux is the key to enjoying it. Although its desire to replicate and resurrect the 3D platformer is handled well with reliable mechanics and familiar design, it seems to have forgotten to age the difficulty level in stride with its nostalgic but now adult demographic. In that fault also lies its greatest attribute, paradoxically. Because the game is well produced but just too easy, it ultimately serves as a great family game to experience with the next generation of 3D platforming fans. The puerile jokes, the hand-holding level design, and the forgiving difficulty won't keep a veteran video game enthusiast busy for long, but it may be the eye-opening, family-friendly experience a child in your life will remember for years to come.

    This game joins the best of platforming with a "very PS2 style". A game with lights and shadows, because it is fun, but also simple, easy and very, very short.

    Overall, Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island is a good game which is let down by its short duration and technical problems on Xbox One. However, one element that stands out the most is the phenomenal and hilarious voice acting. If you’re looking for a casual platformer which can be completed in a few hours without the need for an extraordinary amount of skill, then this is the game for you. However, in its current form—especially with the frame rate issues—it’s not a title we can recommend. The developers need to patch this game as soon as possible.

    Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island is a homage to successful 3D platform games, but forgets to deliver proper gameplay.

    Skylar & Plux is a classic platform game that at first sight may look visually great and fun but the lack of originality and the little care in some aspects are evident. In addition to the short duration of the game the final result is far from other titles that we can find in this genre.

    So it must be said, Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island is more than a disappointment. The main heroes are likeable enough guys, and the world you get to journey through is a decent one with plenty of collectible opportunities. The problem is, there are too many glitches, stutters, pauses and loading screens for the duo to ever become really loved.

    FUN.
    This game is fun. It either copies or pay homage to IPs like Ratchet & Clank and Jak & Daxter.
    The 3D platforming is a joy and I
    FUN.
    This game is fun. It either copies or pay homage to IPs like Ratchet & Clank and Jak & Daxter.
    The 3D platforming is a joy and I constantly looked forward to see what was in store for me around every corner.
    Controls are almost perfectly tight. The only time I had a problem was when battling the little enemy computers. It felt like the punch happened a millisecond or two after pushing the button, but it wasn't a detriment to the enjoyment of the game.
    Also a couple of times I got caught in an obscuring camera angle, but it was very rare.
    The story is just meant to be fun but the voice acting of the main villain is HILARIOUS and is almost by itself a good reason to buy this game.
    My biggest complaint was that the game was way too short. Basically 3 medium sized worlds and a final stage. Difficulty is pleasant. Only twice did I have to repeat an area a few times in order to beat it.
    If you like 3D platformers then i highly recommend this title. I hope they do a sequel or an AAA version.

    Skylar & Plux: Adventure On Clover Island
    one of the cringiest games ive ever played
    Skylar and Plux is a 3D mascot platformer where you play as a cat lady named Skylar..
    setting out to save an island from destruction with her newly acquired sidekick bird friend plux
    The game features 3 levels, 1 boss fight, and can be beaten in about 2 hours…
    As you would expect from a 3d platformer you can jump and double…
    but here youll be spinning and smashing boxes crash bandicoot style to take out enemies and collect these orange gems that act as your health as well as currency to unlock these creatures in cages youll find on your journey that you can are rewarded for finding with more health…
    as you progress the game youll unlock 3 gadgets.. one a jet pack to help ypu glide, one an hour glass that slows time.. useful for enemy encounters and moving parts… and finally a magnet hand useful for pretty much nothing…
    I was actually having a lot of fun when the game started exploring its hub island and even the first island..
    pure platforming, the level was bright and beautiful..
    I was intrigued by the design to explore
    but as the game went on the worse it got..
    the 2nd elvel being a bunch of boring puzzles and the 3rd just being a generic bore fest of putting a ball in a whole while you listen to your bird friend deliver the cringiest dialog ever in a game..
    I can tell not much went into the voice acting here as the main character doesn’t speak at all..
    and this games villain sounds like a random guy youd meet at comicon trying to do a handsome jack impression…
    its bad..
    They did go for the E rating here and this is accomplished by having your bird friend say funk in place of the f word and things like your butt is grass…
    and I could feel myself die a little more each time I heard these 9 year old versions of naughty sayings
    instead of just.. you know.. writing with a little effort..
    Skylar and Plux is a mediocre time throughout…
    it isn’t fun beyond the first 3rd , it runs horribly and starts to lag when things are moving too fast across the screen
    You wont necessarily hate your time with this game…
    and youll at least get some laughs out of the cringefest…
    but beyond this.. theres nothing here worth seeing
    I guve Skylar & Plux: Adventure On Clover Island
    a 5.5/10
