When a character has wings for ears, you know its a platformer 0

Klonoa is a remake of an old PS1 platforming game (which I never played), and it certainly carries that "old school platforming" feel into the current gaming generation, and does so with a nifty $30.00 price tag.  This game is about as simple as they come, with you basically being able to move, jump, and pick stuff up, but it does what I love oh so much: it takes simple mechanics and puts them to use in every situation the developers could come up with.  The result is a solid platforming experie...

A creative, simple, and delightful platformer! 0

Klonoa Wii (Originally Klonoa: Door to Phantomile that was released on the Playstation in 1997) is a simple, creative, and delightful platformer that is sure to please.  The environments in this game are creatively used and graphically beautiful!  I like to see the parts of a level being used in the backgrounds, and it makes me think of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door for the Gamecube and Super Paper Mario for Wii because of the background use!  I think that the background idea is very conse...

Klonoa (Wii) Review 0

Klonoa fans rejoice!!! The remake of Door to Phantomile is no quick cash-in. It is just like the same great game with a lot of great polish. The gameplay has been kept the same w/some new control schemes but I would recommend using the horizontal Wii Remote control scheme. It has a English dub but fans like me would prefer the original the Phantomilian voice work.There are also many bonuses to play with after you beat the game. The one complaint was not the length but the difficulty. You will NE...

Klonoa (Wii) 0

Klonoa has some of the most ingenious level designs this side of the 16-bit era, seemlessly blending side-scrolling platforming with the third dimension in a way that puts most modern "2.5D" platformers to shame. It's a beauty on the Wii too. The creative talent on display here makes the current stock of stale Japanese "me too!" titles all the more grating. The minds behind Klonoa were masters of their craft, and it shows even in this straight remake of the PlayStation game....

Klonoa is colorful retro-gaming bliss 0

In case you missed it the first time around, the critically acclaimed PS1 classic Klonoa: Door to Phantomile has been remade for the Wii. The development team is once again led by Hideo Yoshizawa, who cut his teeth on the Ninja Gaiden series for the original Nintendo. The old-school game design philosophy is echoed in the game’s 2.5D levels; the world is 3D but the player is limited to a 2D play field. This clearly defines where you can and can’t go, facilitating jumping challenges and preventin...

Klonoa door to the fun times 0

 Okay, so before I begin - in case it doesn’t become apparent during the course of this excuse for a review - I am a bit of a Klonoa fangirl. (that is, when I’m not throwing the controller down, screaming, after my attempt to shave a couple of seconds off my best time on the bonus level has been thwarted ONCE AGAIN.) So, yeah. Klonoa: Door To Phantomile on the PS1 is one of my favourite games ever. In case it passed under your radar back in 1998, Klonoa was a harmless 2.5D side-scroller c...

I own it 0

Yeah, the title is a bit selfish, I think. Not too sure about that. Heh heh. Anyways!I've had the game since all the way back in either 2001 or 2002. Can't quite remember when it was that they stopped renting out ps1 games at blockbuster. But that was when I got it for myself over at amazon (was that an advertisement I see!?). Klonoa is the cutest game I've played besides Kirby.The graphics might not be all that compared to now-a-days, but I love the old school graphics like they had back on the...
