Sometimes opposites attract, and Pode's contrasting characters are a great example of that, combining to overcome the game's environmental puzzles. While it's a little rough around the edges, Pode is a charming puzzle game whether you play it alone or grab a friend to play alongside you.
While Pode can be frustrating in it's lack of communication it is a rather beautiful thing when experienced with others.
Pode is breathtakingly beautiful, and a must have for any lover of puzzle games.
Pode does a good job of being adorable, puzzling in all the right ways, and fun, all in the span of a few hours and while it’s worth mentioning the game seems a tad too short, the consistent pacing throughout makes it feel like a bit of a longer journey than it actually is.
Pode is a fun and relaxing puzzle game that starts out simple and becomes more complex as the game progresses and you gain new abilities. While the game is meant for co-op play, it plays just as well single-player, though you will have to constantly swap between Glo and Bulder. Having a second player can also help with solving puzzles as you have a second person helping you out, but alone or with a friend, with its enjoyable art style and relaxing atmosphere, Pode is a puzzle game worth checking out.
Pode is a not a bad cooperative adventure game. It's nice to play it with a friend in front of one screen, or alone, solving several puzzles during a day. If you are a fan of the genre, then it's worth a try. If no, well, then play something different.

With its subtle, relaxing and appropriate musical score, gloriously soft visuals and a simple yet emotional story, Pode succeeds in offering a generous and humble cooperative yet challenging 8-10 hours of content that will shine brightly - especially in among the assortment of fast-paced and frantic multiplayer games that we have right now on the eShop.
The minimalist art design is beautiful, and its characters are wonderfully expressive and emotive despite their simplicity. There's an elegance to Pode, that belies its imperfect platforming and frequent frustrations.
Pode is a puzzle platformer with heart, soul and style. However, struggles with the fundamentals of the genre hold it back from matching the expectations set by its stellar first impression.
Some flawed puzzles don't stop this beautiful, adorable platformer from being well worth your time.
