Kraino features a super retro, pixel art visual style that will make any '80s or '90s kid feel at home. The graphics are true to the classics that it draws inspiration from, and if I didn't know any better, I'd mistake this game for one that was on Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis. Even though it's a pixelated style, Kraino is still incredibly detailed and everything looks fantastic. The colors range from dark and gloomy tones to more vibrant and bolder hues.
A special note should be made of how Kraino looks. It has the kind of nicely detailed '16-bit-plus' look that modern indie platformers have aced - nodding to the past but with way more whizzy colours and effects. All in all, Kraino is a thoroughly entertaining action platformer. Its simplistic level design lacks the depth and the super-tight thrills of the games that inspired it, but for a quick blast on the go it's a lot of fun.
