Reviewing Cloudberry Kingdom can go one of two ways depending on the reviewer. For someone going in blind, the game seems like a quaint platformer that comes off a tad easy. Shortly afterwards, when the game ramps up the difficulty, the fondness bleeds away into a brutal and punishing frustration-filled experience. Receiving a low score from someone unaware of what Cloudberry Kingdom strives to be would come as no surprise . But as a gaming masochist, the utter self-loathing I feel for myself as I hammer out 30 minute play sessions on a single level repeatedly dying in the same spots, is nothing short of gratifying. And while it has a few hiccups, the abuse feels so right.
