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.

  • 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

2 November 2011
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Okabu is a colorful and original-looking title from Hand Circus, the studio behind the similarly offbeat Rolando. When pollution threatens their home in the sky, two cloud-whales descend to the planet’s surface to set things right. Partnering up with the Yorubo tribe, a friendly bunch into sustainable living, the pair of fluffy heroes engages in happy acts of eco-terrorism to thwart the sneering Doza tribe, whose machines and factories are ruining the bright and colorful...

  • Conclusion: Charles Schulz probably never illustrated any happy Cloud Whales, but if he did they would probably look like Okabu’s chief protagonists. With bright colors and a merry atmosphere flooding positivity and joy through every channel, it's hard to look away. This wouldn't matter much if Okabu's gameplay wasn’t up to spec, but the subtle complexity behind the puzzles and variety of objectives serves the theme well - and makes Okabu's handful of technical gaffs all the more...

Cleaning Up The Environment Has Never Been So Fun

Game Informer
18 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Concept: Create a simple action game about cleaning up the environment that's fun for children and adults alike Graphics: Even for a downloadable game, the cartoony visuals won't win any awards, but everything is adorable Sound: A lively and eccentric soundtrack complements the humorous gibberish the characters speak Playability: Who knew a cloud whale could be so responsive?

Okabu Review

GameZone
18 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Common tasks in many of today's video games generally include shooting dudes in the face, stomping on baddies, and hacking away at enemies with a sword of some sort. Recycling and cleaning up the environment aren't your typical video game objectives. Well, except for that one Mario game that came out a few years ago. Developer HandCircus has attempted to make environmental clean-up fun in Okabu , its latest project and first console game.

  • Summary: Dopo il successo di Rolando sui dispositivi iOS, HandCircus prova a sdoganare anche su PlayStation 3 il mix di grafica fumettosa e di gameplay immediato che caratterizza i propri titoli
  • Pros: Immediato, semplice, divertente, Gameplay discretamente vario e coinvolgente, Grafica e sonoro conquistano subito...
  • Cons: ...anche se il secondo dopo un po' diventa ripetitivo, Qualche fastidioso problema tecnico, Grado di sfida molto blando

  • Excerpt: Les géniaux créateurs de la série Rolando reviennent avec leur nouvelle création : Okabu. Avant tout destiné à sensibiliser les plus jeunes aux problématiques environnementales, ce puzzle-game devrait proposer des arguments susceptibles de plaire aux petits comme aux grands. Mais est-ce que cela sera suffisant pour justifier le prix plutôt haut du titre ?
