Summary

As a platformer  Super Wil0o is a game that doesn’t break the mould or really push the genre forward in any meaningful way. It’s a shame sure but it is still a game you can enjoy albeit for a short time and get a stack of trophies for very little effort. It looks like an NES game and plays like an early NES platformer, collect coins, find new abilities and finish the level. The suits are a thing that is nice to have but not must have and sometimes it even feels like they are out of place. Overall it is a fun hour or so but instantly forgettable.

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!
