[PS4] Super Couldbuilt Review
Super Cloudbuilt is an emotional parkour adventure game now available on PlayStation 4. Read our Super Cloudbuilt to learn more about this fun release!
You play as Demi, a soldier who is in a hospital due to serious injuries suffered in the war. While she is recovering from her injuries. Demi finds herself in a dream world. For each level you play as Demi, struggling with what she had faced and endured in the real world. As you experience the game’s story, you’ll start to realize what an emotional journey the game will be. Between your time in the many stages in the game, you will get to see how Demi, lying in her hospital bed, begins to heal bit by bit.
At the start of the game you only have the ability to jump and double jump, but Demi will eventually be able to wall run, before being introduced to the boost mechanic. Thanks to this gameplay mechanic you will be able to scale walls and reach new and otherwise impossible heights. The boost is on a recharge meter so don’t abuse it too much! Once you get used to it, you will certainly enjoy it.
But as you try to enjoy your journey you’ll also to be careful of all the enemies and hazards that will try and stop Demi from success. Fortunately. Demi has a weapon she can use to make short work of her enemies, so be sure to make the most of it so that you can help to heal her fully! You’ll need to get the hang of things and fast because the challenge will rise at a steady pace – especially if you want to land a spot on the game’s leaderboard.
After completing a stage, the game will grade you on how long it took to complete it, how many collectibles you picked up, how many times you’ve died, and more. Getting good grades and overcoming the game’s challenges will reward you with something good, but I won’t spoil the surprise here! Why not try your hand at a complete pacifist run without firing a single bullet?
On top of the Main Campaign Mode and the Ranked Mode, the game also has a Rush Mode which offers an interesting set of levels to complete with considerable challenges to overcome. Super Cloudbuilt was developed with longevity in mind, and it offers a lot of replay value, even having something for speedrunners.
I also have to mention that I really liked the game’s graphics. The cel-shaded look is really good, but if you want to change things up a bit you can also customize the game’s graphics to your liking, adding things such as pencil lines to make it seem like a hand-drawn adventure, or you can set everything to be black and white. There’s a look for everyone in here, so be sure to give this customization option a try!
Super Cloudbuilt is a game full of surprises. It features a good story, solid gameplay mechanics and several gameplay modes to enjoy, not to mention a ton of replay value. CoilWorks and Double Eleven have clearly put in a lot of work into this one and, hopefully, the game does well in sales because I can’t wait to see what their next game will be.
