Clunky Hero Direct Download
Clunky Hero is a story-driven, platformer metroidvania, with a touch of RPG and tons of humor. If you’d love a platformer game where you have a funny storyline, can talk with characters, solve side quests, find and buy items, change weapons and wearables, with great hand-drawn-looking backgrounds, presented in a very comical way, then Clunky Hero might be the game of your dreams! In a village far, far away, a dull peasant named Rufus was living an ordinary life. The boss of the house was his wife, Brunilde, a boisterously smart and funny woman that you wouldn’t exactly call “pretty”. Life was nice and happy in the village, until one day, awakened by some magical mistake, the Evil One started to spread his minions around town, performing hideous acts against the people. The worst of which was the kidnapping of Brunilde. She was torn from Rufus’ hands and put in a prison at the Evil One’s castle. Transformed into a blondie duck-faced doll girl, she now spends all her time staring at herself in a small handheld mirror.
Determined to win her back, Rufus made a helmet out of a bucket and picked a broom as a weapon. Everybody now calls him the CLUNKY HERO, but he might be the only hope to defeat the evil one that no one wants to call by name. Rufus is now on his journey to save his wife and the whole village! Clunky Hero looks great and has a good metroidvania foundation. In my experience so far it definitely needs some polish before I can pick it up again. Inputs were being eaten, some enemies are just walking hitboxes despite having awesome 3D models with weapons in their hands, and I’d way prefer if they went all in on the humor as some of the music/sections in the game clash in tone. Clunky Hero is a metroidvania game featuring a humoristic premise: the Hero needs to rescue his wife from the Evil One who turned her into a duck-faced doll girl. Most of the comedy lies in the prologue area where we can talk to a few NPCs and know more about the setting. I’m saying comedy, but the truth is that the game never got me to laugh despite trying multiple times with quirky dialogues, item descriptions and meta-references.
Clunky Hero Direct Play:
We start the game at the protagonist’s village, with no clear indications on where we should go. I went to the right only to realize the path was blocked and should have gone to the left instead. Although it looks pretty, the level design is too vague and there isn’t any clue about where to find the Hero’s wife or why we should move to a different area. The game doesn’t set a goal that makes us willing to explore and follow the story. Enemies respawn each time we leave the area, which can bother at times, especially considering there are only a few types. I think they could just respawn after saving, like seen in many other videogames. The combat feels basic and unchallenging for a game of this genre; if we get hurt, we can find or buy healing items that make everything way too easy. There is no strategy involved and even boss fights are quite easy to beat, though they don’t show any health bar at the moment, so we are left wondering how many hits they need to go down. The UI also needs some improvements as it looks dated and unfriendly to navigate.
