Critic Reviews for Wunderling

Wunderling DX is an interesting take on the "villain becomes a hero" concept in that you're basically a minion setting out to stop the hero.  While I can see some players may be turned off by the simplicity of the game and the easiness of the early-going, there's enough content and collectables to keep things fresh throughout your journey as an underling setting out to stop a hero.  As backwards as that concept may seem, I thoroughly enjoyed my time through Wunderling DX.

Wunderling DX isn’t the kind of game-changing platformer that’s going to draw in all kinds of crowds. That said, the story adds a fun punch to the gameplay while its mechanical twist is worth checking out for fans of the genre. If you love platformers, Wunderling DX is a well-designed, inventive one of those. If you don’t, it’s not going to change your mind.

Wunderling is a very clever 2D platfromer, filled with secrets and surprises, thanks to a brilliant level design, and a smart writing all the way. Triyng to stop the hero Carrot Man, our antihero walks by himslef through dozens of levels, gathering abilities which always enrich an already very strong formula. Every 2D platformer fan of the genre should definitely give it a try.

By removing the basic ability to turn direction whilst walking, Wunderling proves itself to be an incredibly addictive platformer that boasts excellent level design, brilliant writing, and adorable visuals. Its impressive accessibility means that almost anyone can pick it up, but it simultaneously remains challenging enough to keep you engaged for hours.

Wunderling is a challenging and fun puzzle platformer. With smooth controls and unique level designs, it's hard not to say, "one more try."

The simple controls are a welcome change from the standard side-scrolling platformer. The level design is really spectacular as well, leaving me smiling many times when I finally figured out how to get to certain places. Somehow, the platformer genre continues to entertain me, and Wunderling does a great job of bringing something both fresh and tried and true.

Simply timing jumps within Wunderling's elaborate stages makes for one enjoyable adventure where it feels good to be the bad guy.
