Highly enjoyed it!

I knew about Klonoa since the Wii remake came out, however, I only really got into the series when I was in high school. After beating the Wii remake of "Door to Phantomile," I highly recommend it. The puzzle platforming elements are pretty spot on that'll give you a challenge during the mid half of the game. The characters also have their own "quirks" and "charms" that make them stand out. There's also some heavy themes where you have to restore the world from nightmares. The ending of the game is also a real tear jerker. Overall, I recommend this game to anyone who enjoys platformers or who grew up with this series.
