Kitsune Zero DLC Review (Steam)

For our Kitsune Zero DLC Review, we try and defeat a sinister samurai gang to stop the clan’s war of conquest. Hear the cries of the local onmyouji, a wizardly bureaucrat assigned to keep the peace, and end the samurai’s magical pact with vengeful spirits. Only Yumi can break the alliance and restore peace… and maybe get to go on a date for her trouble. Gather the necessary ingredients to stop the dark pact’s magic and the leader of the samurai clan once and for all. But beware, for a damsel, err, the dashing gentleman in distress might need rescuing!

  • Fully Voiced story.
  • Every couple of levels is a boss fight.

  • Mario but spelled wrong.
  • Levels are short.
  • No checkpoints.
  • No Steam achievements.
  • Cannot rebind controls.
  • The small pool of enemy types.

OK ok, I get it, Kitsune Zero is just a Mario clone pure and simple! It plays like Mario, it has the same power-ups, enemies, and bosses as Mario, it’s Mario in all but name and style. All that doesn’t mean it’s not worth playing because for all its Marioness it is extremely playable and a good platforming game. The movement and jumping are nowhere near as tight as Mario and for that, you will need time to adjust but overall it’s a game you put on amd just zone out with, it’s familiar but fun.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
