This is a fun throwback to classic '90s side-scrolling action games, and what it lacks in originality, it more than makes up for in pure enjoyment. Controlling Kaze is intuitive and responsive, and the action in Kaze and the Wild Masks gets more challenging as you make progress, unlock new areas, and invoke the powers of the Wild Masks. For example, the shark mask is needed for underwater stages, while the eagle mask is required to take flight. There are checkpoints in the Casual mode, but those who play the Original mode will need to start each level from the beginning if they fall off a cliff or get killed by enemies. It has good level and enemy variety, as well as fun boss characters, and plenty of collectibles and hidden areas to explore.

The game's graphics and animation are cute, but it's too bad there are no speaking parts (other than a yell, or something). Maybe it wasn't in the budget, or it wasn't a priority since it's really not a story-driven game. At least the soundtrack is enjoyable. While there's some replayability, it's too bad there isn't a multiplayer option -- because even couch co-op would've been a nice addition. But overall, Kaze and the Wild Masks is a fun game for kids and kids at heart, including those with a nostalgic leaning toward these kinds of games in their heyday.
