Summary

Lovely Planet 2: April Skies is more of the first game. Any changes or enhancements are minimal and instead feels like you are just playing new levels. It still maintains its fast flowing gameplay thanks to fast movements and slick level design. Calling it a sequel feels a bit misleading though as it’s more like DLC. For me, it’s a fine game but doesn’t deserve to be associated as a sequel serving more as an accompanying dish than the main course.

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!
