Space Otter Charlie is a fast and extremely captivating game, as well as intelligent, that holds the player from the beginning to the end. With it you have fun and still learn curiosities about such cute animals that otters are. Despite crashing at times, the game is not compromised by this and manages to deliver everything it promises.

Cute and unassuming, Space Otter Charlie doesn’t reinvent the wheel. But it does provide a lovely few hours of entertainment. Its levels are a joy to explore, and even though traversal can be a bit of a pest, the game’s puzzles and satisfying upgrades more than make up for it. There are far worse ways to spend an afternoon than in the company of Charlie, that’s for sure.

There’s very little to criticize about Space Otter Charlie; cute, charming, addicting, with solid gameplay to boot. Add in the fact that you’re an adorable otter working hard to save the rest of animal-kind, there’s a lot to love in this little gem.

Issues aside, Space Otter Charlie is a fun little title whose main gameplay gimmick is strong enough to keep you entertained until the very end of its duration. It’s a simple game, devoid of hard puzzles or meaningful combat, but charming enough to warrant a purchase.

What pleased me most about Space Otter Charlie was its ability to be a platform title that seeks to reinvent itself. Zero-gravity mechanics, which sometimes refer to some Super Mario Galaxy worlds, but are redesigned in 2D, are well applied and offer good moments, especially in puzzles. Thus, the combination of talking animals in space, with humorous dialogues and exquisite gameplay, is a journey in the stars that enchants, even if everything ends up practically at the speed of light.

Space Otter Charlie is a title that gets under your skin. Once you play, you will want to keep going until you’ve explored every station and rescued each of his friends. With witty otter based puns, excellent audio and well designed visuals, this is a game that will make you smile from ear to ear. It’s family-friendly approach is a bonus, and I recommend you buy it here! Mankind has ruined the Earth for themselves and for every living being. We can run away and find another planet, but the fate of those left behind lies on the shoulders of one heroic otter. Can you find the animals a new place to live? Will you survive the many bizarre ordeals you’ll face? Grab your space suit, jump in your rocket and let the adventure begin.

Space Otter Charlie is a good choice for those who enjoy light, different and uncompromising adventures. Its biggest highlight is the gameplay based on movement in environments with zero gravity and with a friendly difficulty curve for all player profiles. Exploration could be another highlight of the title, but it is used in a very superficial way, which leaves the experience very weak in this regard.

Space Otter Charlie is cute, fun, and easy to play with, clever but simple puzzles, enjoyable old-school boss fights, and plenty to explore, find, and craft. It’s a game aimed at a more casual demographic that I’m really not a part of, but that’s okay. I still found a lot to appreciate.

Despite a few niggles, Space Otter Charlie is a delightful, creative and fun game. There’s so many old school influences shining through here – a splash of family friendly Conkers humour, a structure similar to classic Zelda, traversal that feels like a modern day take on the Spectrum classic Jet Pac – that this game reminds me of the ‘good ol’ days’. If you’re in the mood for an old school action platformer game that benefits from modern day games design, this is the one.
