An animated series turned into Olympic minigames
I wasn't really exposed to the animated Knudde series, but I was aware of it. So, I guess those that grew up with it and grew attached to it will see this game in a slightly different light. For me however it was a bit disappointing. The production value is quite low. Most of the Olympic minigame events take place in static backdrops with the Knudds themselves being poorly animated. This isn't helped by the fact that the animations don't seem to belong with those backgrounds, stylistically, so, all in all, leaving aside the sad Knudds expressions, leaves us (or me at least!) with a sad little bundle of not that great minigames. So, you'll get spear throwing, 100 meter dash, disk throwing and a few other competitions. All controlled rather simply, but as I said the animations are quite crude, and leave you thinking that the controls are broken. Even if not that great either, I'd much rather go old oldschool (!) and immerse myself in a bit of California Games, at least the tone of the game is much lighter and more energizing overall.
