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 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.

Wunderling is a challenging and fun puzzle platformer. With smooth controls and unique level designs, it's hard not to say, "one more try."
Simply timing jumps within Wunderling's elaborate stages makes for one enjoyable adventure where it feels good to be the bad guy.
Wunderling will appeal to a wide demographic of gamers; it’s accessible by people of all ages and skill levels, those who like platform games will love the challenge presented by the bonus stages, and perfectionists are covered with the bombardment of collectables and unlocks. For such a simple game where all you do it control the jump of your character as he mindlessly runs from left to right, it’s brought me hours of enjoyment and entertainment so far. Sometimes, simple is better. If you own a Switch or game on PC, I highly recommend you check out Wunderling today.
There’s nothing particularly excellent about Wunderling, everything it does it does well and that’s about all there is to it. It’s a fun if not remarkable time, and if you’re looking for a platformer/puzzler that revels in mixing up the formula and making you laugh along the way, you won’t need to look much further.
