Mekazoo is a familiar platforming experience that’s immensely fun. Zooming through the levels is a good time on your own, but really the game is designed for playing with a friend next to you. If you’re looking for an evening or two’s worth of entertainment for platformer fans, then Mekazoo is well worth the price of admission.

Mekazoo wants desperately to be in the company of Donkey Kong, Mario and Sonic, but can barely rub shoulders with Blinx the Time Sweeper.

Mekazoo is a gorgeous, brilliantly designed evolution of the platformer genre. It feels natural, playful, engrossing, and challenging all at once. Swapping Mekanimals on the fly adds to the game’s already successful formula by giving it more depth. With a magnificent soundtrack and an intuitive, natural flow, this gem shouldn’t be missed.

While it won’t set the world on fire, Mekazoo is one of those games I could see taking off down the road when it hits a sale and word of mouth spreads. The performance issues will hopefully be cleaned up by then, and players will get to experience the joy the developers have crafted here.

Mekazoo plays it safe in the gameplay department, but what is there can still be frantic and fun.

Mekazoo proves to be a joyous platformer built on the ideas of just about any platformer one can think of, specifically sticking to ones that came out of the 80s and 90s.

A sparkling new take on an old formula, with enough innovation to keep things interesting.

It’s been great playing the game for this Mekazoo review. It’s a fun and fast-paced platformer with a dynamic and interesting main gameplay mechanic that grows on you. If features great level design and a good challenge with a slow and steady difficulty curve that will never feel overwhelming. If you’re in the mood for a modern platformer on PS4, then be sure to give this one a spin!
