Kivi's Underworld Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Killer Betties has published a new review of Soldak Entertainment's casual action RPG, Kivi's Underworld. In Kivi's Underworld players adventure as one of 20 character classes against a variety of dangerous foes. KB gave the game a score of 3 out of 5.

From the review:

Each level has a set objective but there are also secret rooms that give you more points if you find and unlock them. A cool feature is you can go back to a played level and try to find something you may have missed the first time around. Since playing a level only takes about 15 or so minutes the game moves right along.

The game has a very simple to use interface that displays everything you might want to know and tells you the shortcut key to bring up the display. The characters move nicely on the game board, and you can sometimes slip on the ice or race past an opponent while battling him. I also noticed you get bonus points if you destroy barrels quickly, as well as a cool kill frenzy bonus if you wipe out a number of bad guys quickly.

The music fits the game well and includes a nice narration of each chapter. Since this is a simple game you donít talk to anyone, you just march around and fight and explore, which reminded me of games of old that were not to deep in story yet still fun to play. You can even buy power ups to improve Kivi, the amount you have to spend depends on how well you complete each quest in the game.
