OOZI: An Earth Adventure. An evenly paced colourful plat-former, about 5 hours in story mode but provides additional length through challenge stages unlocked by maximizing designated hidden in game tokens. The Steam leader-boards are an exceptional touch. Not in the vein of Super Meat Boy or any other punishing plat-formers, OOZI is a plat-former that you can actually finish and have a pleasant time while doing so.

Difficulty selection ranges from "Kid" to "Hardcore" though the latter just makes the game slightly more challenging. Players are not punished for failure and retuned to checkpoints with previously collected assets intact, which means that for example, discovered secrets persist on restarting checkpoints.

There are numerous game play mechanics which vary the experience. Additionally, OOZI introduces "Quantum Ghosts", holographic recordings of other players that appear in your game. This also means that your game-play is being recorded as well for an appearance in other OOZI instances.

The layouts of the levels are homogeneous and are only distinguished by theme and obstacles. More diversity in this regard would of been welcomed. The controls are tight enough for precision movement though I felt that the wall mechanics could of been better implemented.

OOZI: An Earth Adventure featuring a nice array of Steamworks features; Steam Achievements, Leader-boards, Cloud Save, Trading Cards and Full Controller Support. The developer is also very responsive. I reported a broken achievement and it was fixed in 10 minutes. Their hard work is apparent by the high level of polish and Steam features that have been applied to this adorable plat-former.

Well let's start out with the good. The rendered 2D World is absolutely beautiful. A lot of vibrant colours, whimsical looking enemies. Oozi is very reminiscent of games like Rayman Origins and Legends. A very cartoon like visual that's fun and eye pleasing. The animations do not feel completely fluid, however, that does not mean it detracts from the rest of the visuals.

Each new world is pleasant and visually pleasing, each one different from the last to keep you entertained. The game offers a plethora of visual cues to warn the player of an incoming and/or timed trap. I never felt like the game was trying to pull a fast one and sneak in a random kill on me.

The platforming mechanics are solid with tight controls. Oozi never felt sluggish when jumping or turning. Any time I missed a jump or fell it felt like it was my fault by dropping an input or jumping too soon. Being able to chain multiple jumps and bouncing off opponents just feels so natural in this game. One jump to the next is fluid, mid air turns are quick and responsive. Oozi does feel a little floaty while jumping, but I don't feel this is a problem with the mechanics and most of the time it was advantatious to use this floatiness.

The only complaint I have with the mechanics is the Wall Jumping, it's very clunky and slow. I found it can be incredibly frustrating to deal with. Perhaps I've been spoiled by other platformers that feature wall jumping, but I just can't dismiss this. All in all the mechanics are solid though and wall Jumping is just a small part of the entire game.

The game has four different difficulty modes ranging from Kid to Hardcore. Higher difficulty modes typically add more enemies, lower Oozi's life hearts by one and adds more traps to each level. Kid mode is unique in that Oozi has a much higher jump. While the game is certainly never difficult to the point you want to tear your hair out it never claims to be that way. If you're looking for a Super Meat Boy difficult then it's probably best to avoid this game. If you want a fun and relaxing platforming experience that can some of the time offer a difficult challenge then look no more.

The game features three game modes. A Main story that follows Oozi in the search of his lost spacesuit and spaceship. Each level is followed up by a cute comic describing his adventures and to provide some semblance of a plot. As you progress the main story you unlock new abilities for Oozi such as the ability to Wall Jump or "Pound" Enemies. This kept things slightly more fresh as you progress and adds more elements to the platforming experience. While the levels can be fairly long the game offers plentiful amount of checkpoints in case of screwups. Each world has its own unique boss that are pattern based and felt slightly on the easy side. This isn't exactly a huge problem, but I would have liked to see more random elements added to bosses.

The second mode is the Challenge Mode. Challenge mode presents you with a variety of challenges ranging from something as easy as Completing the level to killing a specific set of opponents. There are also a variety of bonus challenges within each level to add a layer of difficulty to further challenge the player. Arcade Mode is the third and final mode. It offers a timed checkpoint based challenge. The main objective is to complete the level with as many points as possible and not dying the entire way. You do earn health through so missed jumps or damage skips are possible to save time. There is a bunch of bonus content to keep you interested. I feel there might be slightly too many challenge levels, but that's just a personal opinion on that.

Oozi: Earth Adventure offers a great platforming experience for any fan of the genre. It harkens back to the day of old school platforming where mechanics were solid and tight. It doesn't try to be more than that, but I don't believe the developers are trying to be different. Oozi offers a refined platforming experience many of us grew up with. I can't help but recommend this game to anyone who's a fan of platformers.

- Great Visuals and easy to navigate menus.
- Refined Classic Platforming Experience.
- Fairly good music that fits the games aesthetics.
- Great Value for a lot of content.

- Some clunky mechanics like Wall Jumping.
- Bosses feel too predictable.
- Some levels feel too long even with checkpoints.
- Occasional Crashing.

Very nice pure fun old-school 2D platformer. Oozi Earth Adventure offers an addicting platformer experience that hearkens back to the days when “scrolling parallax backgrounds” were super hip and the entire summer's agenda was to set a new high score. It's nice to be able to revisit that sort of experience in high-definition 2D, and in my opinion, this is the kinda game that everybody needs to play at least once in a while

This is one of those old school platformer games. Reminds me very much of those Sega Genesis - Sonic days. The game is colorful and looks very nice. Gameplay itself is very nice with a lot of replayablity. This is a fun and interesting game.

Definetely worth the purchase in my opinion.

Full review: http://www.cublikefoot.com/review/oozi-earth-adventure-game-review/

Oozi: Earth Adventure is a platforming game characterized by its classic platforming mechanics, back when puzzles and punishment in platformers did not really play a major role in the gameplay. This is how the game is officially described and although it does fit the description well, it does have a few flaws that certainly take away from the experience

Essentially, Oozi: Earth Adventure is just straight-up platforming. No gimmicks, just platforms. This did appeal to me before I started playing it, but then I realized how repetitive that could become. The gameplay itself is relatively simple, as that is how the game is advertised. It does have all of the platforming basics, movement, jumping, moving platforms, gaping holes, etc. There are also enemies that can be destroyed in a variety of ways, depending on the type of enemy. Usually, enemies are destroyed simply by jumping onto them, Mario-style, but some can only be killed by a ground-pound and some just cannot be killed.

You also have your basic platforming obstacles, like moving platforms, spike traps, lava pits, etc. Very basic features. The game adds little to differentiate itself from other platformers, but I do tend to review games based on what they are, instead of what they're not, and this game is advertised as a classical platformer anyways. This would certainly appeal to platforming fans looking for a simple, laid-back experience that takes about four hours to beat. The game also features amazing visuals, as well as amazing music. The music is very fitting to its corresponding world, with each world having its own personality.

The world and level design is well-executed, each world having its own special set enemies, obstacles, music, etc. I really enjoyed the third world, which was inside a laboratory with bright white walls and radioactive waste everywhere. The gameplay can become repetitive at parts, especially when you get stuck at one checkpoint and end up dying a dozen times trying to reach the next checkpoint. Most of the checkpoints in the game were reasonably placed, but a few were placed a little too far out, causing me much frustration as I died repeatedly just trying to reach said checkpoint. I would sometimes die a few steps from the checkpoint and have to redo my whole run from the previous checkpoint, which I found very aggravating.

The game seems to be lacking in replayability, however. The only reason I can see someone replaying this is to get a higher score for a higher position on the leaderboards (which I placed 13th in after I beat the game) or to collect the hidden stars in each level, which unlock more stages to play, like challenge and arcade stages. The challenge stages were simply the same as their corresponding stage, just with a few extra objectives, like not taking damage, or beating it in a certain time.

Overall, Oozi: Earth Adventure can find its true audience in those looking for a simplistic platforming experience. Although the game has limited mechanics and repetitive gameplay, it's still a new experience that platforming fans can take up just for the fun of it. Oh, I'd also like to point out Oozi's smile. Just look at that! The corners of his mouth GOES ABOVE HIS EYES.
