QuickFacts

Critics Consensus: Balan Wonderworld is full of charm, but half-baked platforming, clunky controls and generally sloppy execution mar the experience. This is easily one of the worst 3D platformers in recent memory.

Balan Wonderworld is full of charm, but half-baked platforming, clunky controls and generally sloppy execution mar the experience. This is easily one of the worst 3D platformers in recent memory.

Tom Marks (IGN)

4/10

“All the charm in the universe couldn’t save Balan Wonderworld’s half-baked platforming and ill-advised one-button design from being a complete bore.”

GameCentral (Metro GameCentral)

4/10

“A slightly embarrassing attempt to recall the early days of 3D platforming, with a central gimmick that never really captures the imagination and clunky controls and gameplay.”

Not Recommended

“Surreal, enigmatic and often sloppily executed, Balan Wonderworld is a 90s throwback that might be too period correct for some.”
