One day, “Treffy the Spirit User” suddenly gains possession of the “KOKORO CLOVER” and must go on a great adventure with friends in order to find out a great secret!
Silly rivals and formidable enemies abound in the fight for the “Kokoro Clover”. Season 1 contains 12 episodes!
Enjoy that Sunday morning feeling in Story Mode, or unlock more actions and characters with coins collected in the more stage-based Adventure Mode. Collect unique characters, cards, and fill your monster books!
There is also a boss rush mode and a mini-game mode for lots of variety.
The story also includes opening and ending animations as well as commercial breaks!
And you’re not just limited to Treffy’s transformation: you can also control a “tough rival” and a “very red robot”!
There’s also a “dance” can do in each stage. Just for the fun of it.
And there’s more than 20 bosses!”
3DOgaming score: **/*****
KOKORO CLOVER Season 1 tried its best to present an episodic anime platformer based upon the anime television show from Japan. While I appreciate the concept, the game itself just is not that good.
Graphically, the game is presented well, with vibrant colors and cute styling. Lacking knowledge on the characters or the television show, the storyline for the game is lacking.
Extended dialogue sequences detract from the game, as I found myself trying to skip the conversations as they dragged on far too long.
