Countless games promise the world and then inevitably fail to deliver the goods. We’re constantly told some game will have the “biggest open world” or “hundreds of hours of gameplay,” but how often do you feel like your expectations were fully met? A delightful exception, Epic Yarn comes through on every claim it’s made over the past few months, offering a memorable 2D platforming experience that ranks right up there with the greatest Nintendo titles of the past. Obviously Epic Yarn’s aspirations are lower than the next big FPS or MMO, but that doesn’t change the fact developer Good Feel gave us precisely what it advertised, plus laid on the charm so thick it’s forced a smile on every GamesRadar editor’s face during the review process.

From his first appearance in 1997, there’s always been that feeling that Klonoa would have better suited a Nintendo platform – after all, giant flapping ears and whimsical rainbow vistas sit uncomfortably alongside the Tekkens and Metal Gear Solids. As a simple bit of franchise/console matchmaking, Namco’s remake is to be applauded.
But why stem the clapping there?
Console game development takes time, but action-platformer The Kore Game: Outvasion From Inner Earth has taken more than most. In the works for nearly a decade and having passed through the hands of three publishers and three developers, it has the potential to be absurdly polished or a colossal dud. While the actual result isn't exactly the interactive equivalent of the Hope Diamond, it is filled with enough bizarre humor and creative level design to easily avoid Dudsville...
