Platformer thrills with Angel Dorantes’ Kraino on mobile

With the years, we did notice drastic improvements in the quality of mobile games that are being released. However, we also observed that developers from a particular genre seem to enjoy going back in time every now and then! You must have guessed it, it’s the platform gaming genre and we will often find the retro style back within titles launched on the App Store and Google Play.

One of these latest releases is an app coming from Angel Dorantes! It’s a platformer called Kraino and its looks will certainly please players who are into retro thrills on the go. To give the title an edge on existing ones, the developers ensured that it came with a good dose of action. Its pixelated graphics and sounds are also contributing to give this app its glow.

It will indeed be pretty hard to believe that Kraino is free-to-play! However, simply going through the basics should be enough for an overview of the controls, graphics and all other well-polished in-app features. When it comes to the gameplay, it’s meant to give users an adrenaline rush. Hordes of monsters, deadly obstacles and really hard bosses will all have to be encountered!

Do note that Kraino is a 9+ rated title and according to the developer, “infrequent/mild cartoon or fantasy violence” can all be expected. It looks like a hit to me, try it out on your smartphone or tablet soon and once tested, remember to come back to share your thoughts in the comment section.
