Floating Cloud God Saves the Pilgrims was originally a PS Mini title for the PSP, and one that was held in high acclaim. It was a unique horizontal shooter in the same vein as The Game Atelier’s Flying Hamster, but wasn’t quite as much fun as, in my view, the controls were less than ideal. Dakko Dakko has brought the title back once again as a native Vita title in HD, and the Vita’s second analogue stick rectifies those control issues in the process.
If past PSP titles like Patapon and LocoRoco fit your appeal, then Floating Cloud God is right up your alley. The colourful aesthetics are pleasing to the eyes and radiate the game’s playful nature, and the upbeat soundtrack fits right into place. Like the titles mentioned above, the game holds a certain zaniness that gives it a style all onto its own, but I’m sure the name alone gave that part away. [Review Score: 4/5 Stars]
