Play OverviewPlay Overview

Super Ember Kaboom (2022) is a fast-but-approachable running and jumping game. You play by controlling Ember as they work through levels, collecting fruit and killing cartoon enemies. The novelty is the bright visuals and the friendly learning curve that is newcomer friendly.

Grimoire has captured the elemental spirits. Without their protection, dangerous monsters have appeared and the world is being thrown into chaos. You work to help free the woodland spirits by dealing with the the seven bosses. Controls are tight and simple to learn. Unlike other platform games, things are kept simple with just a few powers (Freeze, Fire, Light and Shock). Levels offer a bit of variety of modes. Some advance on their own so you have to keep up. Others flip the colours into silhouettes or add a doppelganger character who chases you. Then there are the boss encounters.

The result is a bright, friendly game that offers a challenge without ever feeling high pressure. You are likely to die quite a bit but it always feels fair and gets you back to the action to try again.
