About The Game
Unhappily ever after. That’s how it starts. The Orb resurfaces and the classic characters return. Kobbler with his mania, Princess with her endless boredom. It’s only a matter of time before Bob, our hero, shows up to restore order back to madness. Three powers struggle for victory and the fate of Cloudberry Kingdom hangs in the balance. What will become of the retired hero, Bob? Will saving Princess one last time win her love? Could true love ever stop Kobbler and the power of the Orb?
Take control of Bob and try to master ever more devious and downright murderous levels in Cloudberry kingdom.
The story mode features 7 chapters each with 40 levels you'll get the credits after the first 6 chapters (240 levels) the first time I actually played through this I thought I'd completed the game only to realise almost a year later I actually had another 40 to go!
I started from scratch on level 1 and reached level 240 in just under 6 hours dying a grand total of 2,587 times
Level 1 makes the game feel so easy but the feeling doesn't last long!
Since then I've managed to drag bob from level 240 to a staggering 243! (Yes I've done that well!)
For those that still find certain levels just that bit too hard there is help at hand.
Collect the blue gems throughout the levels and you can hit the X button & spend them on the options below.
- Watch how the computer does it (pretty self explanatory the CPU will do the level while you watch on bewildered.
- show a path through while you play - A circle will go through the level through all gems and to the exit all you have to do is follow it (with near millisecond and millimetre accuracy easy right?
- Activate slow motion - Everything will move slower so you can see those gaps just that bit more clearly of course bob now moves slowly too.
Level 243 my current Cloudberry Kingdom level nemisis
The slow motion and path guide can both be used together but if you quit the level you will have to spend more gems.
If the story mode ever begins to get you down you've got arcade mode or the free play mode. all offer more of the same try me if you love to die levels that will after a short time really put you to the challenge.
1-4 players can play in any of the modes this might start off with a come on lets do this attitude but usually descends into a who can make the exit first and leave others to die attitude which can all lead to chaotic fun.
4 players each with their ow custom Bob can only lead to chaos!
So many levels!
4 player chaos as you each try to make it through.
The perfect game for those that complain about platform games being too easy these days. (That would be me)
Mass customization mean most bob's will look quite different.
Despite all the deaths I still can't help but adore the game!
ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT
The Music won't be to the taste of every player (including me)
For some the sheer number of attempts and failures on a level will put them off (for others like me it will drive you onwards)
Despite having other modes the game plays exactly the same way throughout.
Calling Bob fat is a little harsh he's really just big boned!
The game was designed to be challenging and probably at least partially frustrating at the same time it hits both of those perfectly.
It has a lot of rhythm game qualities if you can connect with that invisible rhythm you'll ease through the level while one misstep and poor bob's lost life counter will grow and grow
Losing over 2,500 lives in 240 levels should tell you a lot about the game plays.
(either that or you'll assume I’m really bad at games)
The game will kill you over and over again, I never personally felt that I’d never ever be able to beat a level (not even you 243 I'm coming to get you!)
The levels that kill you the most will ultimately always give you the most satisfaction once you finally reach the other side.
He’s always worn pink on my game (My son chose it for him but I gave him the hat)
I've loved every minute playing this game even on the levels that brought Bob nothing but death I knew I'd beat it in the end.
I'm not quite at the end of the game yet but I'll never let Bob give up until we get there!
