About This Game

Jump to a new level of adventure


Journey with the shaman panda, Juju, and his lizard sidekick, Peyo, as they embark upon a dangerous and mystical journey to save Juju's father and the world from an ancient evil. Run, bounce, chant, and battle humongous bosses with a friend or family member in this beautifully animated, lighthearted adventure.

Story


Juju’s father, Jambee, heads out to perform his daily rituals, unaware that Juju and Peyo have followed. While the elder is momentarily distracted from his work, the curious duo steps in, accidentally releasing a terrible and ancient spirit. Jambee bravely dives into battle with the creature, but he is not victorious and barely manages to pass a magical mask to his son before being captured. Now, it's up to Juju and Peyo to gather the mystic keys and magic ambers needed to seal away the spirit and save the day.

Characters

Juju – our main hero. A small, brave panda embarking on an exciting adventure to save his father, and the world.

Peyo – Juju’s best friend. Despite his clumsiness, he’s ready for anything and will gladly help save Jambee and defeat the evil spirit.

Jambee – a powerful shaman and Juju’s father. He’s captured by an evil force, but in his last moment of freedom gives his child a magical mask, and with it, a task to save the world.

Guardian of the Mask – the heroes’ guide and helper that leads them to the pieces of the mystical key and aids in the journey.

Features


Unique art style – the vibrant world of JUJU will leave every face smiling as players venture through brilliantly animated landscapes and come face-to-face with striking enemies.

Family-friendly multiplayer – grab a friend or family member for two-player cooperative play. JUJU is enjoyable for all skill-levels and allows the second player to jump in or out any time.

Intense boss fights – from towering robots to giant sea creatures, players will go head-to-head with nefarious (and huge!) bosses to gather the four pieces of the mystic key.

Secrets and collectables – the adventure isn't over yet. JUJU features secret areas, hidden levels, and other game modes to keep you playing long after saving Jambee.

Charming game, which elicits a smile right away, but merely interesting for hardcore platformer fans.

It's about:
  1. collecting together pieces of a broken key;
  2. jumping (a lot);
  3. unhasting level's exploration and getting a coins to unlock secret levels:
    • through collecting ambers;
    • by seeking for hidden teleports and collecting ambers in mini-game.

Why you should play this:
  • you looking for a relaxing platformer or something easy enough to play with your little kid or younger sister/brother;
  • bright levels with different design for each of 4 worlds;
  • great boss fights;
  • no reason to fight with common enemies - instead you can make them dance and pass through;
  • responsive controls.

Why you may not like it:
  • an impression that levels sometimes way too long: without a challenge and after all hidden teleports explored it just a dry journey to the level's end without even shade of challenge;
  • misbeleive of the story and game's universe: besides jungle, where everything started, and tropical beach we have some kind of childish construction yard and sweets world (with all its cookies, candies and jellies) - how these worlds connected into one piece, how they are managed to be parts of game's universe is one big question.

If you younger than 10, you won't find any flaws...

I have nothing but great things to say about this game. I wanted something other then an rpg to play for once i decided to take a gamble on a game i didn't really hear about and it paid off.

What i played

Game time : 7 hours
Achievements : 100%
Replayability : For sure you could sit with a friend and have then play this along side you if you finished it by your self.

Cons
Why start with cons ... because well i didn't find any truth be told. basically if you enjoyed rayman legends/returns Then you will love this game. Though you maybe a little put off by it's simplisity but thats what makes it fun.


Pros.
Excellent level design secrets are scattered through out the levels and if you don't explore you may miss a bonus stage or maybe some gems needed to get the coins to 100% i reccomend exploring every inch of the levels

The sound track is just amazing sadly i can't find anything on youtube for the ost https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIpr693sl4c This trailer should tell you what you are in for though

It is definitly simple enough for a kid to pick up and play as well so if you have any children then let them try this game out it will probebly keep them entertained for awhile. People think us gamers don't want platformers like this anymore i for one disagree in fact we need to go back to the n64 age where there was plenty.

verdit : Definitly buy if you want something differnt to play or just want simple fun.

Is hould mention that this game has the best credit sequence i have seen. Seems its the only thing on youtube ost wise. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5W3udG8QpSc

Great family game. Played through it with a 4 year old who absolutely loved it. The best part was the second player doesn't die, so long as the first player stays alive (or vice-versa), so the 4 year old was able to fully enjoy the game without the threat of dying.

I definitely recommend this game, especially for parents & children to play together, or anyone looking for a quick game to play through on their off time.

Also want to note the adorable graphics and worlds. Very creative, colorful, and might I say, cute.

This game follows the story of Juju and Peyo who witness Juju's father engaged in some kind of occult ritual. When his father is distracted curiosity gets the better of the children and they interfere with the ritual unwittingly opening up portals between worlds; unleashing hoards of demonic creatures amongst them and allowing Juju's father is captured by one of these eldritch horrors. Juju and Peyo have to battle through the different worlds to retrieve parts of the talisman to rescue Juju's father whilst he is subjected to unthinkable torment… in a family friendly way.

This is a charming, colourful, casual platformer which is obviously aimed at children but still very enjoyable for adults. It looks good and the music is fun. The controls and enemies are quick to get the grips with and new concepts are introduced gradually. It is best enjoyed with a partner but the second player can drop in and out at any time. There are bonus levels hidden throughout which are a bit repetitive but completing them all unlocks some extra levels which are more challenging.

All in all this is excellent, I wish there were more local co-op games of this quality available.

I am really digging this game. It is a delightfully simple platformer that is amazingly forgiving: perferct for even the slowest child.

Astonishingly, it supports a variety of different control schemes mix and matched. (Any combination of up to two keyboard players (same keyboard) /two controllers, including a mix and match of the two). I am using a 360 gamepad, so I don't know how well third party controllers. Worst case scenario you could use xpadder or something and map the buttons to keystrokes.

It's Donkey Kong on PC except not as good.

I've gotten multiple freezes, it's kinda stuttery and one crash too.
A few bugs, character wouldn't stop playing the drums, had to restart also some of the textures didn't load in fully, ruined the otherwise great visuals.

Times like this I wish there was a neutral option, this isn't a bad game, it's fairly good, but unoriginal ideas and technical issues take it down a notch.

It's worth it at a hefty discount.

JuJu is a delightful platformer aimed at a more casual crowd.
Make no mistake thou, this is a modern platformer having all the elements that match said recipe.
It's not a particularly hard game but then again you will not exactly play it with one had. There are secret areas to complete and bosses to beat!
Perhaps a ideal crowd for this specific tittle would be children but any fun loving adult can enjoy it as-well.
There is 2 player co-op either both on keyboard or controller or one of each. You can drop in and out of co-op without needing to restart or go back to a checkpoint or any of that nonsense, just drop in and drop out.
My only issue with JUJU is that it seems to be tailored more for girls then for boys. There is a male version of JUJU which you can play in CO-OP but you cant use said character in single player... which i find really odd.
Fore more details you can check out my first impressions video on JUJU :

I have not played much of it, but from what I've seen and experienced, it's really great!

This is one colourful, simple and fun game you can play by yourself or with a coop partner next to you.
Much like Rayman, it allows you to collect shiny things and fight adorable things.
It's a really worth while purchase if you like cute platformers.
Can be completed up to 100% quite fast as well.
Pretty much must have if it's on sale.

ALL HAIL THE JUJU!

Opening Trailer

From the team that brought you Shadow Warrior, where you combine the brute force of overwhelming firepower with the elegant precision of a katana to annihilate merciless armies of the shadow realm and Hard Reset,a cyberpunk over-the-top destructo-fest with a large cache of weapons to dispatch hordes of enemies comes ...


JUJU!

Journey with the shaman panda, Juju, and his lizard sidekick, Peyo, as they embark upon a dangerous and mystical journey to save Juju's father and the world from an ancient evil. Run, bounce, chant, and battle humongous bosses with a friend or family member in this beautifully animated, lighthearted adventure.

Coming Q4 2014!

End Trailer

In all seriousness, this is one hell of a beautiful game. Super vibrant and colorful. It's also a really good platformer game in general. There is a neat idea that I wish more platformers supported, which is to make it easier for a co-op partner to play, such as no hard-fail state if the co-op partner dies. Alternatively, coop doesn't need to be easy-mode, it can be changed at will and made difficult for both parties.

What is JUJU, other than a badass bongo playing panda?

Like the store describes, it's a platformer featuring an adorable cast of animals, that make music, while engaging in their platforming queste of collecting everything that can be collected.

My playtime on JUJU is not the highest, I have not yet completed the game either. However I have finished the first world segment, engaged in boss fights, played bongos, learned how to fly and managed to get a grasp that's good enough for a first impression.

Mind you, this review is personal bound, you may agree or disagree, I speak for no-one but myself.

What does JUJU right?

+ JUJU's levels are relatively short, this however is not a bad thing but makes it ideal for a game you just pick up and play for a short while till you've got your fill. It also helps that the levels are relatively short as you have portals in each level that can only be attempted once during a given run.

+ JUJU's world is a beautiful, vibrantly coloured world that really comes to life with all the critters wandering around in it. The use of colour also engages the player in exploring each nook and cranny for portals or other little secrets.

+ Music, while I've heard the same music being played over again, it doesn't hinder or get annoying. It's quiet fitting with the theme of the game and the level design.

+ Difficulty, the game gives you an initial laydown of the controls in the very first level you enter, however after that it's reduced to a minimal popup of explanations (I recall having seen one after defeating a boss). The game introduces new hazards, new enemies, new interactive platforms gradually while playing through a level. It also does this in a way that you don't get overwhelmed.

+ Enemies, there are plenty of them, they look different, they have their own unique little thing. Stomping crabs is all fun and games, getting needles in your fluffy behind from a hedgehog costs you a life!

+ Drop-in / Drop-out Co-Op. No need to do it at the start of a level or at a checkpoint, you can do it at any given time.

What has bothered me about JUJU so far?

- Camera, while I'd say the camera is your buddy 90% of the time, there are moments where it seems to have somewhat of a difficulty keeping up with your character, this can lead to cringe worthy deaths that could have been easily avoided. Granted the levels are short so you don't lose a whole lot of progress, everything you did in between checkpoints has to be done over though.

- Relatively short, the game seems to be relatively short. I've completed the first world and my progress is at 23%. Looking at the background in the menu I'm going ahead and assume there are 4 worlds total. While there is some replayabillity, their isn't much to do in a level once you have completed it.

Do I recommend this game? Yes.
Do I recommend it for it's current price? If you're out for a quick platformer fix that can be played solo or in co-op without expacting anything of extraordinary length, yes.

So there's a lof of things done right in this platforming game:

+ Beautiful level design
+ Underwater levels which remind me of Donke Kong Country and thus, are fun
+ Great controls and visuals
+ The music is at least decent
+ The game offers a lot of content. Time Trial, Hardcore mode, bonus levels.. you can find anything!

But of course, there are also a few negative aspects about this game. Which ones you ask? Well I'm so glad you asked, so here they are:

- The bonus levels are always the same and thus, bore quite quickly
- If you fail a bonus level, you have to kill yourself in order to be able to retry
- There are no explanations nor a manual in the game whatsoever. If you forget how to do several things, you're on your own
- The moving speed is too slow

I'd still recommend this game to platformer fans, though. If you liked New Super Mario Bros, Banjo-Kazooie or any game similar, you will love this.

"JUJU was created because the developers' wanted a co-op game that they could enjoy playing while allowing their kids to join in."

This is the game in a nutshell, and as far as i can tell they have suceeded. There are lots of very forgiving mechanics that let an adult and a child play together. (even small children, i play this with my 4yo) After playing for a while i can let him play himself, only to drop in from time to time to help out in tricky parts. He loves it and i enjoy it too.
