Kao the Kangaroo Free Download Unfitgirl Kao the Kangaroo reminded me why I fell in love with 3D platformers back in the N64 days. While I missed the Dreamcast console-exclusive original back in the day, it surprised me how familiar this reboot of the 22-year-old series felt, though the revived Kao doesn’t exactly try hiding how it’s looked to other modern platformers to create a highly derivative comfort-food experience. It’s a lot of fun, colorful, and certainly rather nostalgic; just don’t come in expecting a Crash Bandicoot 4-level challenge. Stories of heroes rescuing loved ones against the odds is nothing new in this genre, so suffice it to say that Kao’s not breaking from tradition here. Dialogue could’ve been stronger, too; there’s good humor to it, but that’s sometimes weakened by outdated pop-culture references. Kao’s mom referencing “taking an arrow to the knee” is hardly topical, and the younger crowd a game like this is aimed at probably won’t recognise it. Still, there’s a pleasant cast joining our young hero like his wise teacher, Walt, whose more grounded nature keeps scenes entertaining by acting as an effective straight man for Kao. Now, this wouldn’t be much of a mascot platformer without wildly varied environments, and Kao packs four visually appealing worlds. Between the uncomfortably warm Lava Caves hiding within the sunny Hopalloo Island, Hungry Jungle’s tropical sights, and the (hopefully) self-explanatory Unfitgirl.COM SEXY GAMES
Frozen Mountains, they’re fun to explore even if they fall into the usual tropes. Each location serves as a hub that’s filled with collectibles, though runes are the only batch you actually need to concern yourself with, since they unlock new levels. Once you begin exploring, Kao quickly finds his father’s old boxing gloves, which absurdly happen to be home to a strange and sassy entity who provides him with supernatural abilities. Alongside your standard jabs and combo strikes, Kao can build up to powerful finishers by hitting multiple enemies. These gloves also store up to three elemental charges, starting with fire before unlocking ice and electricity. They provide some nice visual flair to his finishers but, more importantly, also help him clear platforming obstacles like spider webs or freeze water to create a bridge. Otherwise, Kao’s dodge-roll also attacks enemies, making it a blessing for defensive strategy, with an understandable trade-off in that these don’t hit nearly as hard as a straight punch. Traditional ideas are sampled and remixed effectively enough. Kao’s packing some strong moves and the new developer, Tate, has given us plenty to do with them by providing us with decent enemy variety. We’ve got the usual grunts taking swipes at you up close, but things like goats firing sheep at you with a launcher keep this interesting.
Platform at its best
Every world’s capped off with a boss fight, each of whom provide some fresh tricks — I won’t spoil them all, but Hopalloo Island’s boss, Terror, leaves a trail of fire behind him after attacking, while Hungry Jungle’s Jayabaya lobs projectiles from afar that Kao can punch straight back. Nothing groundbreaking, sure, but enough to avoid predictability. Between climbing across vines using his ears, grappling across floating hooks, and making temporary platforms appear once you’ve struck a purple crystal, levels carefully and effectively avoid repetition. There’s the odd bit of puzzle solving too, including one challenge where Kao must link the lines together on a crystal to make it whole, clearing your path upon completion. Another level had me running away from an enemy rolling towards Kao on a giant log, taking clear inspiration from Crash Bandicoot’s Boulder Dash. Again, nothing entirely original, but traditional ideas are sampled and remixed effectively enough. You’ll find no end of hidden secrets, so I’d recommend thorough exploration. Are there secrets behind those waterfalls? You bet! Levels hide plenty of collectibles: between extra lives, heart pieces, treasure chests packed with coins, and diamonds, there’s plenty to grab, and cash can buy new costumes from each hub world’s shop. That includes a retro look for Kao, which will likely please original fans. FINAL FANTASY IX
Every level also hides three letters spelling KAO, which can be tricky to find, and some enemies drop scrolls that unlock fresh lore for the ‘Kaopedia.’ If you’re not feeling it for another platformer collectathon, fear not. Like I said before, only runes are essential for progression and nothing else is mandatory. But it does beg the question; why are some of these even here? The letters can be tricky to find, much like it was in Donkey Kong Country, so I understand there’s a sense of accomplishment in finding them. But across my entire playthrough, I couldn’t find any practical use for these collectible diamonds. That includes during the post-game, which takes you back to before the creative final fight, letting you complete things you missed. Kao is fairly quick, but it felt like the right length. Thankfully, items aren’t the only secrets found during exploration. There are 14 mini bonus levels, known as Eternal Wells, hidden within these stages, and each requires you to complete a set challenge. That can be something simple, like defeating several waves of enemies, though more commonly it involves completing trickier platforming challenges, earning more coins, or collecting more diamonds. Each hub world contains a separate Well, so if you find one but struggle to complete it you can still go back at any time, there’s no need to dive into the main levels and find it again.
Problems so far
That said, even after beating those wells, Kao is a quick experience that needed just nine hours to complete, taking 20 mins on average per level. If you’re not fussed about exploration or the Eternal Wells and are simply here to see this campaign through, you’d probably manage it in about seven or eight hours. In fairness, though, not many platformers are longer than that; big-name games like Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and Super Mario Odyssey are one thing, but smaller efforts like A Hat in Time or Ary and the Secret of Seasons clock in at similar lengths. I’m just glad Kao doesn’t overstay his welcome — it felt like the right length, and Tate’s balanced this well.The main problem was that I just didn’t find it particularly tough, and there’s no difficulty settings to crank this up to challenge me on a second playthrough. It’s not a complete cakewalk, (that dodge roll comes in handy when confronted by enemy groups), but those extra lives scattered everywhere quickly stack up. Death came infrequently, even more so once I began finding heart pieces to increase Kao’s health. I didn’t mind this so much, though. I won’t pretend this structure doesn’t feel formulaic after four worlds, yet Kao nails the basics. Very clearly taking cues from Insomniac Games’ original Spyro trilogy and Toys For Bob’s Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, Kao The Kangaroo wants you to think of those nostalgic mascot-based platformers. FINAL FANTASY VIII – REMASTERED
Sadly though, this modern iteration on the genre doesn’t have the same charm or long-lasting appeal as the games it aims to emulate. After around five hours I was done with Kao’s adventure, even if I still had a few errant collectibles to sweep up. That short time was spent between some vastly different hub worlds and the linear 3D levels they contain, the design of which is undoubtedly the best part of the game, as Poland-based developer Tate Multimedia uses each to introduce and explore a series of mechanics and ideas. Most of these will be recognisable to long-time 3D platformer players, but there are a few new and promising ideas in there too. The best of these new ideas is Kao’s magical boxing gloves, which can be used for combat or to channel the elements of fire, wind and ice for puzzle-solving. These elements are found via orbs scattered around each level, for which Kao gets one use before having to find another. Three of these can stack in any combination, meaning the player can hold onto an element until they need it later, or switch between them on the fly depending on the situation. Each element can then be used to help solve a series of puzzles or get through platforming challenges. None of these puzzles were head-scratching in difficulty, but the game takes you through every idea at such a brisk pace that none of them need to get that challenging anyway.
Fun but highly unpolished
Sadly though, this means that by the time all three of the elements are introduced and start getting used in conjunction with one another, the credits are already rolling. Whilst Kao’s gloves and move set get some visual flair depending on which element is equipped, the kangaroo’s combat doesn’t engage with the elemental mechanic at all. Combining the elements and combat isn’t required of Kao The Kangaroo, but the developers missed a trick in unifying the elements across different parts of the game, so both the world and enemies require effective management of the elements. The reason I bring this up is because Kao The Kangaroo’s combat needs that extra punch. Whilst no one expects Devil May Cry levels of complexity, Kao’s move set is severely limited to a three hit combo and the occasional heavy attack. Most 3D platformers have combat this deep, but it’s Kao’s occasional over-reliance on combat encounters that highlight how the fighting falls flat. The best of the 3D platformer genre blends combat into its core ideas and doesn’t treat it as a completely separate entity, but Kao does. Visually however, Kao The Kangaroo is a delight. It embraces the cartoony sensibilities of the 3D platformer genre in both its world design and animations to make the game a truly modern-looking spin on classic platformers. The colours and general aesthetic are bold and sharp, which does a lot to help Kao visually stand out. Fireworks Mania
The animation when playing is also well choreographed and distinctive, and combining this with the visuals immediately makes the game feel well polished and of high quality. This quality takes a nose dive either when a cutscene plays or a large number of the characters start speaking though. Cutscene animations feel lifeless in comparison to when controlling Kao, which can be exemplified by how easy it becomes to spot an idle loop when characters are talking, instead of special animations breathing life into the characters. The voice acting, on the whole, does not fit Kao The Kangaroo’s visual style or character designs. Most characters come across as flat and reserved, which doesn’t match how they look in-game. I didn’t find the performances themselves to be a negative, but almost none of the voices used seemed to fit the visual personalities presented through each character’s design. Kao The Kangaroo is quick, easy, and doesn’t offer much in the way of long-term value, but it does enough in its short run time to remind you of, and tap into, the highs of the 3D platformer genre. Whilst it lacks any real challenge and the distinct charm of the games it attempts to emulate, Kao’s adventure is a visually pleasant romp in its own right. Kao‘s main problem isn’t what it does poorly, but what it’s missing out on that other games in the genre do so well
Crisp cutscene animations, a central mechanic that permeates both platforming and combat, and a level of charm that comes together as soon as you start playing. That said, fans of the genre will undoubtedly get something from their time with Kao The Kangaroo, as its visuals and level design do enough to carry the game to the finish line. The first thing that pops out when you play Kao the Kangaroo is its art style. This game does not try to hide its inspiration at all. If you play the newest game in the Crash Bandicoot series, then everything about the visuals of this game will look familiar. That’s not a bad thing, as the art style really does a great job at not only making the game feel modern but also fresh. Not many games have used this art style since Crash Bandicoot 4, so it’s nice to see another 3D platformer use it. Another thing about Kao the Kangaroo is that it’s simple. Unlike the previously mentioned Crash Bandicoot series, which prides itself on tough challenges and even tougher platforming, Kao the Kangaroo takes an easier approach. No 3D platforming section feels impossible or even that hard. I managed to play through a large section of the game, including multiple bosses, before ever dying (and that was only because I wasn’t paying attention during a particular section of the game). It’s a somewhat refreshing change; I don’t need every 3D platformer to try to be the next Dark Souls.
