Summary

I will be honest, I never heard of the the King Man series until now. I wanna feed bad but this trilogy made it feel alright,for it may be a small set of games from a couple of indies but they pack a lot into a small package. For people like me I shall tell you that King Man is a platformer game at its core and then each game adds something new like deadlier obstacles or how the coins work (they are needed to progress or finish a level). King Man spans the Nes, Gameboy and Super Nintendo generations and this is evident instantly by the graphics but becomes more evident when you play them and see how much is going on. I really enjoyed my time with the series and it did make a fan out of me, I appreciate how the devs knew it would be a new set of games for many people so they added in little history cards, and an in depth mini documentary which is well worth watching. However you cut it, Trilogy King Man is a set of forgotten games lovingly brought back to the market with all the care and attention of so many other reboots. Oh and Trilogy King Man is a fantastic set of games that serve as an example of how games were due to the limitations of hardware, and how that didn’t stop devs from making memorable games.

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!
