Clockwork Knight (Sega Saturn review)

Developer: Sega
Publisher: Sega
Released: 1995

Clockwork Knight is an action-platformer that was quickly followed by a 1995 sequel on the Sega Saturn.

+ Gets better with every play-through thanks to the multitude of secret areas waiting for you to locate.

+ Some entertaining set pieces, particularly the train ride in World 2 that has you multitasking in quick succession.

+ Bosses are inventive and their patterns and your ability to attack them presents some interesting challenges.

+ Whimsical jazz music really suits the playful scenery and the whole presentation resembles the Toy Story movies.

- With only four worlds the game can be beaten in less than an hour, and there's nothing to do afterwards.

- Controls can be very slippery and your momentum carries you forward way too much when sprinting.

- Sharp difficulty spike in the fourth world that the game doesn't prepare you for, and some unfair trial-and-error moments.
