This game is a gift to my nephews. They came up with the name, story and gameplay. The characters, weapons, enemies, bosses, fonts, some levels and many other miscellaneous objects were collected from their old drawings, which can be viewed by collecting the concept art throughout the game.

Lame level design plus crappy base gameplay. Otherwise not too bad. Music is nice at least.

Basically, I don't recommend investing time on this.

I'm not going to leave a positive review like most people just because the game title has "Made By Kids" in it.

Some of the level design is so horrid that you just want to rage. (Cloud Level 2)

The gameplay itself is "okay" it would be better if every monster didn't push you off the platform causing you to start the entire level again. -.-

The "drawn in" monsters and characters are kind of funny to look at, other than that the game isn't that great. It's a very difficult platformer that isn't very fun.

However, in the lava stages there's some epic music. I doubt kids had anything to do with the soundtrack but I thought I'd throw that in.

Crappy controls (push jump, in some situations nothing happens- you die...), stupid level design (Clouds 3 or Graveyard 2), DO NOT BUY!

And, its not MADE by Kids, only the drawings are made by kids.

The game isn't made by kids, only designed by kids. It is a pretty generic platformer without much challenge. The drawings become boring after a while. If you're a kid or into kids' drawings, this is the game for you. Unfortunately, I'm neither.

I'm really not sure whether I should recomend this game or not. On the one hand this platformer-RPG has some cute graphics (although quite a lot of people won't like how simple and "empty" they can be) and a great, relaxing soundtrack. There are plenty of levels with ascending difficulty and a huge variety of enemies and bosses -every world, literally, has its own kind of enemies- that throw away tons of loot to collect which then can be used to upgrade weapons or construct different stuff like some very useful teleporters. If you want a relaxing game to play when you have some free time and you find its graphics appealing, then you can give it a try (since it doesn't cost much), but you have to play it on easy or medium at max, cause hard is irritatingly difficult.

Quite disappointingly, hard is the only way to gain achievements and unfortunately it's very difficult and unfair. Platforms tend to get smaller and smaller as you progress and your jumps have to be more and more accurate every time, thus making the last worlds almost impossible to beat, since the controls lack the precission needed to make these jumps and if you press the button a tiny bit longer you fall into the gap and have to start the level all over again, as there's no sign of a checkpoint even on the biggest levels. God knows how many unnecessary and irritating deaths you will have to suffer on your way to beat the game (if your nerves manage to fight it till the end). And since this isn't enough, even these simple graphics can get confusing at times. For example some enemies can be hidden behind a tree or on a platform that's beneath you and you can't see them properly, so if you don't pay much attention you might get hit and fall, which equals to even more unnecessary deaths.

However, the most annoying thing about this game is that you don't expect this kind of difficulty. There are these cute graphics, made by kids, there's also the sounds that make you relax and the first levels are quite easy, too. So you lossen yourself and sit back and then you get suddenly caught off-guard and smacked hard in your face for being such an unwary fool.

So, finally, if you want to have a little fun for some hours or buy something for your kid, you could give this game a try, if nothing else is on your mind, but if you are an achievement hunter that wants every game completed 100%, you should first double-check that you can handle the irritation caused by this game's unfairness, before playing it.
