Cloudpunk is a game all about delivering packages to the many colorful characters of the world. It’s a very slow-paced game with a huge repetition arc as you are constantly going backward and forwards. It’s a game that is a lot of fun and a great way to pass the time as the world of cool with its voxel style graphics and the brilliant soundtrack just makes it a coherent experience. The driving is not good early on, it has a huge turning arc, it’s sluggish and the camera amplifies this with it being hard to judge distances or get past traffic slightly. I like the put of car portion of the game as you can talk with locals, find Collectibles and do some shopping but I don’t like how I have to find the sparse parking spot locations first, that in itself is a map icon jungle and then you have to navigate the world to your location and it all makes it a right pain and adds unwanted puzzle elements to it all. For me Cloudpunk is not a bad game and it’s not a great game, it’s just an alright game that had grand ideas but for whatever reason, I never felt like they were realized and it could have been a lot different. Overall Cloudpunk is a good stop-gap and a great first step into a cyberpunk world.
