Spoilers offers a story told differently
The history of this title has a beginning which will undoubtedly be the basis of the development of “plot”. All starts with a grandfather and his grandson, his grand-son asks you for a bedtime story and the story of our beloved little cloud. It is said that the primary objective little cloud is none other than reach the “Olympus” of the clouds, which is none other than the rainy and well-known city of Seattle.
As we go through the adventure, the “storytellers” reappear to make us discover new skills or important facts. This way we meet our enemy, the Drought doctor. That every time we finish or start a new domain, we will have to deal with it.
Throughout the title we can find references to other games
Party Pooper presents simple and very enjoyable gameplay
The the gameplay is very easy to understand, In reality, in the main menu we learn the basic commands and the fundamentals of the game such as moving and raining. Throughout our journey we unlock a total of 3 powers in addition to the rain. They are none other than him lightning, snow and tornado. Each ability unlocked will be assigned to different buttons on the remote control, be it A, B, X or Y. Unlockable without any hindrance huge to get them.
The levels all follow the same structure. In each of them there is a series of mandatory targets which are easy to obtain, in addition there is more complex levels where are we going to have to solve a small puzzle to complete it. Beyond that we can choose also to do the optional lenses. If the we complete everything they or they we will unlock a cosmetic item for our cloud.
The variety of levels this is similar, but they still manage to be innovative enough not to be alike again and again. There is special phases with objectives other than the general line of the game. stealth areas the by steps in the same step. Beyond this excellent gameplay, the only bad point attributable to Killjoy it is undoubtedly his performance. The game goes to 60 frames per second, But has frequent drops at 30 or even less. It is something that is present throughout the game except the main menu.
Each time cLet’s complete a “world” from the map, a grandson and grandfather cinematic where we will be introduced to the new power. These cutscenes are a good motivation for this outing, since they put us in context with the story of the adventure. To put it to the test, they will take us to the theater or we will experiment with the power and we’ll see how to combine it with the ones we already have. the the game map is interactive, and we can move for him freely, which is very reminiscent of the Super Mario 3D World, a detail that gives great value to the game.
Range of sounds fair but well chosen
Yes OK This is not a title with a loud sound section, it should not be underestimated. Because it will not become monotonous or repetitive. Obviously, sounds like those of the powers don’t have a lot of variety, but they won’t become a nuisance in no time.
At any time we will have a good soundtrack accompanying us throughout our adventure. It will be present both in the menu and in the levels. Except for the special levels that we find throughout the map. Anytime we wet a person outside of the scared run, we will know that they are completely wet when we hear a sound similar to heavy rain. In addition, each of the powers that the cloud acquires will have its own sounds. While they are still similar sounds caen sometimes in monotony, making the gameplay more bearable.
Graphic quality with a cartoon theme and also cardboard
If there’s anything that makes this video game unique, it’s its graphics. The chosen theme mix it up cartoon with cardboard. Because our character is a cardboard cloud hanging from a few threads that give life. The sets, characters and props have a fairly decent level of finishes taking into account the general aesthetics of the game. He does not feel like something out of phase on the technical level, on the contrary perfectly fulfills the purpose it focuses on the adventure of our little cloud.
It is to highlight that graphic quality is not sacrificed in any part of the titlebecause it is very similar both on the map and in the levels themselves. As we move forward we find different characters made of the same material as our protagonist: cardboard. This is something that undoubtedly gives the game great value, because distinguish plot characters from other NPCs which are in the phases and the map of the game. As a curious fact about this project, includes a very interesting photo mode that we can use to capture the funniest moments of our odyssey across the water.
Killjoy it’s a video game that goes unnoticed but what is his the outward appearance shouldn’t go wrong. Because hides a very pleasant odyssey at any time with a nice difficulty curve this will invite us to keep playing and unlock new items and powers to bring Cloud to Seattle.
It should be noted from this great adventure that, without a doubt, managed to effectively combine different types of levels so as not to make this title a constant repetition of areas. In addition to create similar goals each other but “recycled” so that doesn’t always seem on the same level. In addition, the way in which the the gameplay is easy to understand. We start with a power and we conform we are progressing they are presented to us new combinable skills to achieve the goals. It is certainly a perfect video game for the little ones in the house and to enjoy with the family.
What Bad points we can’t blame much except those awkward frame falls boring that appear at any time throughout the gameplay, ranging between 60 and even at times, less than 30 frames. It is something that it can be boring at specific times in the game. Yes OK it is not something that is a serious obstacle for the player if yesa little bitter touch to the gaming experience, something that It can be improved by optimizing a little more the game.
