Kukoos: Lost Pets Review | Nintendo Switch

Kukoos: Lost Pets

Kukoos: Lost Pets is a brand new 3D platformer from Modus Games and developer PetitFabrik. Kukoos are a fun-loving bunch who love their pets, and when a giant mechanical frog comes into town to brainwash them all, it’s up to the Kukoos to save them. You’ll have to travel to secret worlds within the giant Kukoo tree in order to find your friends and end the pet rebellion, allowing you to use their abilities to battle unique bosses, find hidden collectibles, and solve ancient puzzles.

One of the first things you’ll notice about Kukoos: Lost Pets is the art style. When I first saw screenshots of the game, I thought it was some kind of Fall Guys spin-off, but it’s not. It has a very similar look, mainly with the way the characters are designed, but the world of the Kukoos is much more detailed and rich. The environments I think are probably some of the best parts of the game and really give it a great look and feel. The character designs aren’t that bad either and should appeal to most people playing Kukoos.

The gameplay however is nothing like Fall Guys and instead, Kukoos: Lost Pets plays more like a traditional 3D platformer. This has a lot in common with game franchises like Crash Bandicoot or even Mario 6 to some extent. It isn’t quite an open-world platformer like Mario 64, instead, you’re limited to following loose rails like Crash Bandicoot, but at your own pace. The platforming elements are pretty standard, but the use of pets is interesting. Each pet provides different kinds of abilities, for instance, you can have one pet that provides lighting, while another pet could provide short flight.

Other notable game elements include lots of secret areas to explore, extra levels, and replayability with different pets. Not only that, you can get friends to join along in your adventures, up to 4-players via local multiplayer.

Kukoos: Lost Pets is certainly an interesting and fun game. The gameplay here is pretty solid with controls that are easy to learn and pick up. I like that the game is on rails for the most part mainly because it keeps you on task and is a bit easier for younger players. Although you can go off the rails a bit and explore, which is how you uncover hidden secrets. Aside from the gameplay, the art style is also really good and though I thought it was a Fall Guys game at first, it really goes beyond the look of that game in every way possible which should also appeal to a wide variety of players.

Kukoos: Lost Pets is available now on the Nintendo eShop.
