Bloo Kid 2 pays homage to the 8-bit era of platformer, it follows a lot of what made Mario Mario but it has many little hooks like the six types of tasks to do in each level. Having a clear counter means you know where you stand at all times, the controls are tight and the game plays fantastic. I recommend Bloo Kid 2 to all types of gamers, it has a low skill ceiling and is challenging enough to keep your attention but not too much to infuriates you. A solid all-round game.
