Okabu

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Okabu has come from some creative minds. Players take on the role of Cloud Whales. Part cloud, and part whale. I am not joking about that either. You float around, collect water, rain it down, or spit it out. Then you can start to carry passengers who will grant additional powers. Like being able to grab things and pull them. The story in Okabu is sort of on the environmentalists fringe.

Okabu review

GamesRadar
23 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Okabu makes a great first impression. It’s got a colorful and weird art style, like something you’d see in a children’s book illustrated by the United Nations, a refreshingly odd and family-friendly story about helping the environment, and some super catchy music. It assaults you with its cheerfulness, and like that cute little girl selling cookies outside the grocery store, it’s hard to walk away from.
  • Pros: Cheerful storybook visuals and presentation, Sharp controls make cloud flying fun, Crazy amount of collectibles offer tons of replay value
  • Cons: Bugs! So many bugs, Unmovable camera gets in the way at times, Levels are overly long and lack checkpoints

  • Conclusion: This isn’t a game for me, nor is it a game for most kids I think, but it isn’t hard to see what Sony saw in Okabu. As a game, it’s not much fun, and as an aesthetic piece of entertainment, it’s neither here nor there. However, it continues a proud, understated tradition for the PSN: make non-violent games that champion color, intelligence, and goodwill amidst the sea of edgy-ness that our beloved medium is wont to overproduce.

Okabu Review

  • Excerpt: “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” - From The Lorax by Dr. Seuss Poignant and haunting, Dr. Seuss’ take on environmental degradation, clothed in a whimsical children’s story, communicates a tough message through his soft medium. Hand Circus, the developer behind Rolando and Rolando 2 for iOS, attempts to modernize that message with its first foray into console gaming, Okabu .

  • Conclusion: Yes, it's a kids game at the core. So what? We could all stand to relax more, and Okabu provides a classy and gorgeous way to do just that. There is no better game to play with a young child than this one. My daughter would give it 10.

Okabu (PS3) Review

  • Summary: Okabu is a fairly good little game, but one that offers little challenge. Parents with kids will enjoy being able to play together with their children and Okabu is also a great “break” game to play between more intensive sessions of other titles. The lack of difficulty and challenge hurt it in my eyes and prevent me from giving it a higher score. With a little bit more challenge and more variety in the puzzles this game could have been very special.
