Why is that people cannot remember their dreams? It is because the energy from dreams is collected in the Moon Kingdom where it is given substance. This rule was broken when Klonoa, a cat-like creature with wings on his ears, dreams that an airship crashes violently into a hill and a mysterious shadow hangs over the wreckage.
When the dream comes true, Klonoa and his friend Huepow go to investigate. Take control of Klonoa as he travels through twelve levels of action. As luck would have it, Klonoa encounters a number of enemies who want to stop him. Fortunately, Klonoa can grab enemies and use them as weapons to destroy other bad guys, or throw them to the ground and propel himself upward. He can also pump up larger enemies and make them explode. Help discover the reason for the dream in Klonoa: Door to Phantomile.

Using 2D "sprite" characters amidst a 3D background, Klonoa avoids a dated look other games of that console generation suffer. It still looks fantastic, and plays great.
The controls in this game manages to (outside the d-pad to move) only use two buttons, but you're never left feeling as if you're missing out on anything. If you like platform games, Klonoa is a blast, and the story is memorable.
Game-play wise it is similar to the old Mario 2D games in movement except that the environment is 3D resulting in some interesting mechanics. Klonoa's special ability comes from his ring that he found in the woods one day and inside it was some bubble creature that became his best friend. On that note the ring allows Klonoa to catch enemies and then either throw them to attack, or jump off them in midair to perform a double jump. Now this game is not without its faults, the combination of 2D and 3D makes it sort of difficult at times to judge the distance of enemies or items. As far as length game length goes don't expect too much. I finished it in about 6 hours and the only reason to replay it might be to unlock the bonuses earned by saving creatures in each level. Also notable is that the game has a VERY childish tone about it as far as art style and difficulty. The game spews cuteness out every orifice and the difficulty curve is slight. While there are some tricky jumps and bosses the challenge is pretty much constant so new gamers might feel like they are accomplishing something. Also the gibberish that passes for communication as well as their squeaky voices might grate on a few people's nerves (not the case with me). Even with the heavily childish tone and possibly irritating voice work the game was decent. It felt nice playing it because I'm about 20 and it brought me back to day when I put in Sonic 2 on my genesis. At the same time playing something so childish sometimes requires breaks to play something more intense. I found myself taking breaks every 2 levels or so to play Team Fortress 2 to let the adult in me assert its authority. Allow me to just skip to the bottom line. If you can afford and track down a copy of your own then I do recommend this game, especially for kids or those new to the gaming scene that are turned off by casual games. Heck, if love cute, fuzzy creatures then this'll be just right. Klonoa
The story is great, even if a little short
The challenge is high for all except the best platformers
The graphics are top notch for the era
The replay value is kinda slim, but midrange for perfectionists
A little short but sweet.
A truly under-appreciated classic.
