Summary: Parents need to know that LocoRoco: Midnight Carnival , a downloadable game for the PSP, is a cute puzzle/platform game that’s safe for all ages. Note, though, that its difficulty level, which is greater than that of its predecessors, may be above the threshold of younger players.
Excerpt: LocoRoco: Midnight Carnival might not be a proper sequel to the superb PSP platforming series, but it's still got the cuteness, adorable music and colourful visuals that fans have come to expect.
Conclusion: A great point for new gamers to come in, as they will hopefully continue the series with "Boing!" included henceforth. A strong narrative and multiplayer would have only helped this game, but neither were really explored. A great portable title.

Excerpt: The best games sneak up on you like Christmas, and the Gamescom reveal of the new Locoroco game couldn’t have been better timed – it’s only been a matter of a few short months since we first heard about the new adventures of Kulche and friends – and it’s out tomorrow.
Pros: It’s more LocoRoco – one of my favourite series on the PSP., Built for the PSPgo – it’s entirely playable (minigames aside) with just the triggers., Well priced, and far bigger than the press releases would have you believe., The new super bounce move is a brilliant idea., Multiplayer is a nice a...
Cons: It’s tough – harder than previous titles right from the off., It’s a little bit too ‘platformy’ for me in places.
