Purchase Date: 01/04/2003

Out of the shadows and into the midst of a snow storm.

In an era where simple platform games are hardly made anymore, it was easy for me to pick up PK when it was released. I am also a big fan of Donald Duck, which made the purchase a bit of a plus. The game is a straightforward platformer-shooter and even though it's 3D, the gameplay is mostly restricted to moving forward into the screen. There are stuff to collect, gaps to jump, and scientists to rescue in each stage. The problem with the game is that it's very repetitive and it could have benefited from shorter levels and more bosses. There are also moments when the camera goes a bit haywire and the lack of manual control leads to a slight degree of frustration.

LIBRARY STATUS: 3 out of 5
