Bloo Kid 2
Bloo Kid, and Bloo Kid 2 are apps. Bloo Kid 2 has been ported over to
the Nintendo 3DS. This makes perfect sense since there are so many nods
to Nintendo in this downloadable only hand held video game. I also
noticed nods to other companies franchises like Sonic the Hedgehog. Part
of the fun of playing Bloo Kid 2 is finding the Mario, Sonic, Kirby and
This 2D side scrolling video game contain five worlds. In the five worlds there are nine levels each. One of those nine levels is a boss level, another one is a castle level. Long time gamers will know which video game franchise is being given a nod to there. Bloo Kid 2 gives players a double jump which is wonderful to avoid the numerous enemies. Also some of the objects certain enemies will throw the players direction.
Bloo Kid 2 is a retro video game visually. The sounds feel a bit more updated, and have more of an impact in my opinion. There is cartoon violence as we jump on the heads of enemies, and can get on fire to knock them out of our way. I guess the ESRB could not find any words for the violent content in Bloo Kid 2. Or they have become so desensitized by ultra violent video games that they think nothing of the violent content in Bloo Kid 2. There is also a zombie world in Bloo Kid 2.
If you are looking for a 2D side scrolling retro video game on the Nintendo 3DS with some depth and charm then you should take a look at Bloo Kid 2. There are multiple stars that can be earned in each level. The hard part is getting all of them. Since collecting all of certain items, and a speed run do not work together in a single attempt at a level. This is one of the ways Bloo Kid 2 encourages replay.
The controls in Bloo Kid 2 consist of the D-pad and the buttons. I am so used to using the circle pad that it was painful for me to remember to use just the D-pad to go left and right in Bloo Kid 2. Bosses in Bloo Kid 2 are interesting, and can take time to find the patterns. The advice I give is this - avoid taking hits as much as possible. An opportunity eventually presents itself.
