The Adventures of Cookie & Cream, known as Kuri Kuri Mix (くりクリミックス?, Kuri Kuri Mikkusu) in Japan and Europe, is a multiplayer, action-adventure video game developed by FromSoftware for the PlayStation 2. A port for the Nintendo DS, Cookie & Cream, was released in 2007.

Story[edit]

Cookie (known as Chestnut in the European and Japanese versions) and Cream are two bunnies who are on their way home on the eve of their clan's 'Moon Festival'. However, during the journey home, they meet a messenger who tells them that the moon is gone and that if no one finds it there will never be another festival. After each of them is given a crown as a symbol of courage by the mysterious messenger, they go on a journey to get the moon back.

Gameplay[edit]

Players can choose from two different modes: versus and story. In story mode (one or two players), players must guide Cookie and Cream to the goal before the time runs out. In one-player story mode the player controls both Cookie and Cream at the same time; in two-player mode each player controls one character. On the PS2 version, the two players can either use separate controllers, or they can both use the same controller, with one player holding the left side and the other the right side. Throughout the game, Cookie will have to navigate through many obstacles. Most obstacles will require Cookie or Cream to perform a specific action so the other is able to advance past the obstacles. Players can collect silver watches which add 20 seconds of time and gold watches which add 50 seconds of time as they play through the levels. Throughout the story mode players can collect puzzle pieces to unlock more characters in versus mode. In versus mode players compete to collect as many points as possible.

Reception[edit]

The game has enjoyed widely positive reviews upon its release. On release, Famitsu magazine scored the game a 30 out of 40.[1] Critics have praised the game's innovative and entertaining gameplay as well as its bizarre aesthetics and overall atmosphere.[citation needed]

Nintendo DS port[edit]

Cookie & Cream, known in Japan as KuriKuri DS: Otasuke Island (くりクリDS おたすけアイランド?, Kuri Kuri DS Otasuke Airando), is a Nintendo DS port released in 2007.

Cookie & Cream lets players navigate their way through terrain on the top screen while solving puzzles and disarming traps on the touch screen below. Played as either a single-player game where one person controls both characters, or a cooperative game where one player maneuvers Cookie on the top screen while the other is in charge of Cream on the touch screen. You are able to play with a friend on the same unit or via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Cookie & Cream also includes nine mini games and additional features.
