SilverTree Media has been knocking it out of the park with their roster of games. The robotic platformer Cordy was awesome, the vertical jumping spin-off Cordy Sky was solid, and the creative arcade title Sleepy Jack was just sublime. Now, they’ve gone back to their roots and brought us Cordy 2, and this little robot received one heck of an upgrade. With smooth platforming and creative levels, Cordy 2 is pretty much everything a platform game fan would want.
This time around, Cordy and Volt have crash landed on a new planet, where the mechanical inhabitants are enslaved by the tyrant Boogaloo. Yes, that’s really his name, with all the enemies having the word “Boogie” somewhere in their names. It’s up to Cordy to stop him with new abilities, new friends, and a host of new adventures across three beautifully rendered worlds.
Despite the kid-friendly approach to aesthetics, this game is really quite hardcore. Just beating every level will not be enough to progress. Each level has up to three stars to earn; one for reaching the end, one for finding all the volts, and one for beating the level within a time limit. Later levels are blocked off unless you have enough stars, so you’ll have to go back and replay old levels if you don’t have enough. That’s not really an issue though, as levels are simply a joy. They’re non-linear, pleasing to the eye, with plenty of nooks and crannies hiding secret areas.
