Tate Multimedia created Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon, two renowned 3D platformers, and published Kao the Kangaroo, a new adventure game. Each of Kao’s four accessible worlds features a number of levels that must be cleared by collecting Runes. During the course of the game, it is possible to find secondary goods and upgrades, as well as new clothing and cash.
After suffering a terrifying nightmare, the protagonist of Kao the Kangaroo sets out to find his sister and father at the beginning of the novel. After discovering his father’s gloves, Kao dons the gloves of the terrible thing and soon faces the evil entity. Walt, his guru, assists Kao in achieving mastery of the gloves. The gloves may absorb and utilise elemental abilities to solve puzzles, and there are objects that can alter the environment through interaction.
Kao must earn Runes to move the plot throughout the game. On each planet, a predetermined number of Runes must be discovered in order to advance to the next level. In order to continue to the next step of each world’s plot, a boss fight is necessary. The Hungry Jungle and the Frozen Mountains, with their thick vegetation and icy cliffs, are simply two examples of the many landscapes players may experience. When visiting a new area and beginning the first level there, a new special power-up, such as Kao the Kangaroo’s ice or fire gloves, will be available. Environmental issues and treasure seeking need the utilisation of power-ups.
Each section requires completing the Overworld, three stages, and a boss level. The last planet has just two levels, as opposed to the customary three. To complete a level, you must continue until you reach the finish and collect all of the Runes. As the game advances, the possibility of losing progress decreases. When Kao is injured, he loses hearts, and if he runs out of hearts, he will perish. Similar to The Legend of Zelda, Kao’s maximum health may be boosted by discovering or purchasing heart pieces.
Besides crystals, scrolls, and the letters “K-A-O,” Kao may also discover a range of other goods, excluding boss battles. Some of the game’s hidden tunnels may be difficult to locate. When gathering items, Kao can unlock new attire and headgear for his wardrobe. Each overworld contains a shop with a changing room where players may purchase items. When Kao leaves and returns, store-useable coins regenerate at the same area.
Kao employs his supporters and interrogates his rivals to discover what happened to his father as he defeats his opponents. Kao must combine platforming and combat in order to defeat the Eternal Warrior. Kao must utilise the power of the Eternal Gloves to interact with elements such as crystals that create temporary passages. This game has a great deal of variation, although the combat is quite simple. Even the most challenging boss bouts present little to no challenge or hardship.
Throughout the game, there are a few difficult-to-find treasures and platforming obstacles. In contrast, Kao’s trip is an easy adventure game that can be finished in a single playthrough. Kao the Kangaroo does a fantastic job at capturing the spirit of classic 3D platformers, but the actual gameplay is unchallenging and lacks enthusiasm. Tate Multimedia, on the other hand, has created a leisurely, vibrantly hued journey that is fun to complete at your own pace.
