Clu Clu Land (NES) review


"The origin of Nintendo begins before the epic quests with the simple games. Clu Clu Land is one of those simple games, but is immensely fun. Personally this is an NES game with alot going for it. It's a puzzle game, as many original NES games were, but it is entertaining and very innovative. "



The origin of Nintendo begins before the epic quests with the simple games. Clu Clu Land is one of those simple games, but is immensely fun. Personally this is an NES game with alot going for it. It's a puzzle game, as many original NES games were, but it is entertaining and very innovative.

GRAPHICS (7/10): You have blobs that go across the screen, and you are some deformed thing. Little pegs pop out of you, to swing you across the circle. Kind of a strange graphical ways, but for its age, they are fairly nice.

SOUND (4/10): Age once again helps out this grade. It's the same music over and over, but it is fairly pleasing and it does an ok job in the game. You have the typical sound effects of course, which are nice to hear.

GAMEPLAY (48/65): This is a puzzle game, and gamepaly is what makes it great or a failure. You are a strange little creature, who can shoot some things out of it's head. He has pegs that pop out of his side, which will send him spinning. You use this to try and find coins which will make various designs. Once you finish a design you beat the level. It's kinda tough to explain until you play it. It's a fairly fun idea, although it does become repetitive. It is fun for awhile, and one of the better puzzle games for the NES.

REPLAYABILITY (7/10): It's an old puzzle game, and well this is what makes or breaks a puzzle game. And in Clu Clu Land, the game is fun. You can play for a long time, and pick it up now and then just for a quick play through. It's not as addictive as many other classic NES games, but it does the job well enough.

DIFFICULTY (3/5): Easy game to pick up, and an easy game to master. The game keeps going on for ever, and the levels really don't get much harder one by one. You can play for hours once you get the hang of it, even with the increased speeds. Not too tough as you play it.

OVERALL (69/100): I very entertaining puzzle game for the NES, in my mind it is worth the look at. It has it's fun for a bit, although not one of the best, definitely not one of the worst. It is strange at first, fun at second, and repetitive at third. The second stage is the reason to buy it though, for it does have it's moments.

Rating: 6.9/10

The Star Fox team first appeared on the Gamecube in a platform game, called Star Fox Adventures. While, many considered it a quality game (and others a subpar game) it never really felt like a true Star Fox game, despite the occasional flying (simple stages). Namco, however, introduced the true sequel to the classic St...

Jak II was one of those experience that every gamer either absolutely loved or completely loathed. The game strayed from everything the first Jak game stood for, in that it took a much serious outlook, and it based itself more on the GTA series, that it's own original concept. Jak III does not change any of that, as it...

Jak II (PlayStation 2)

Jak and Daxter was a platforming game based on exploration, simple fight patterns, cool minigames, and lush colorful scenery. All that has changed in Jak II, for no longer is the Jak series perfect for kids of all ages and instead this game is only a little less intense version of Grand Theft Auto.
