Zack Zero brings back the magic of old school retro classic platform games I have always loved. Glad to see there is still developers and gamers that really care about this game genre. The game is utterly brilliant and visually gorgeous. Game-play wise is carefully crafted and balanced, nice controls puzzles and thrilling combat. If you enjoy platform games Zack Zero wont disappoint you, it will amaze you!! Hat off to Crocodile guys! So now just go and get it!
Sidecroller with up to date graphics and some bugsMasterrar | June 4, 2013 | See all Masterrar's reviews »
Zack Zero focuses on a genre which is mostly forgotten in most of the developer’s heads (except the plumber guy). A side-scroller (which is in 2D originally) in a 3D look is a good idea to start with. For that purpose the game´s graphics are acceptable. The overall comic look with its light colors looks fresh combined with the cutscenes looking as a comic which are telling the story (in the German version the narrator speaks as if your grandpa is telling you a fairytale :D). The powers of the protagonist´s (Zack Zero) suit which upgrades as you progress are interesting. The game contains battles which are making fun and some riddles. Those are rather boring because you can solve them easily. The bosses are looking interesting but to fight them is the exact opposite. You always defeat them with the same strategy. The overall difficulty of this game is not too high. For me I mostly died because of bugs. Sometimes I have to quit and restart at a checkpoint because I got stuck. But overall it’s a polished experience of a side-scroll game.

With a very nice-looking graphic, Zack Zero is a good action-platformer side-scroller game. There is a good variety of locations, a lot of upgrade, an entertaining story...it's not a masterpiece, but a good game. Give it a try, it might worth its price.

Zack Zero is a old-school 2D platformer game. As an old-school game, it's pretty difficult, but it's not frustrating. Its graphics and sound design are spectacular. You control Zack, who has a suit, which you can use to do many things. But despite its great things, the game is prety short and some may find it really hard to beat some levels.
Classic and well executed side scrollermtgrill | May 25, 2013 | See all mtgrill's reviews »
Wasn't sure what to expect with this one, but it really surprised me. Graphics are top notch for a 2.5D game with lush environments. The suit is very fun and a central part of the game with multiple different suits you can wear. Lot's of collectable stuff in each level that really extends the replayability. Each level is different from the last which makes me want to keep playing and discover the next level whether it be a factory, lush forest or ocean bottom it really is incredible the amount of detail. One thing I did not like was the controls can sometimes be finnicky but that may just be me nitpicking as I haven't played a sidescroller in a long time.
