Quite some time, back in the SNES era, there were some games that featured claymation as their animation style and, at least briefly, it was a thing. Myself I was a fan of Clayfighter, though not just for the way everything looked but also what at the time were at least reasonably-good play mechanics and a generally silly style. Now, so many years later, perhaps the likes of Floogen are here to make the old new again? Well, maybe not in this case. Keeping in mind that this is a pretty low-budget affair it would be cruel to beat up on it too much, but while this reasonably basic platformer has some quirks and charm with its appearance and general approach to some sequences that attempt to make it a little more elaborate there’s no getting around its general wonkiness. Whether it’s the controls that I’d say are best characterized as “chunky” and perhaps clumsy, or just some unintentionally weird or awkward moments created by the game not feeling particularly polished, it’s a game that can be tough to love. But if you enjoy the art style and have some patience it still may have enough charm to be some simple fun.
