Coryoon is a fantastic and joyful shooter. Graphics are ludicrously creative and give the game its own unique and distinctive personality.. Although Coryoon is undoubtedly cute and aimed primarily at kids, it displays some incredible technical qualities - smooth and fast parallax scrolling, stunning backgrounds, large sprites and tons of them on screen without any slowdown. This comes at a price though and the only down point for me is the on screen confusion - it often leaves you looking for your character behind a wall of fruits and enemy sprites.

Oltre ad avvalersi di un comparto visivo da manuale, Coryoon riesce a intrattenere il giocatore esperto così come il principiante grazie alla struttura bilanciata e all'intrinseco idillio organicista di cui è depositario. Da riscoprire ad ogni costo.

Der Horizontal-Scroller ist nicht ganz ernst gemeint und animiert dank der extrem putzigen Grafik öfters zum Schmunzeln. Dafür muß man sich mit etwas Hektik zufrieden geben, die ab und zu ins Unfaire abrutscht. Trotzdem macht Coryoon eine Menge Spaß; nicht zuletzt wegen des “High-Score-in-zwei-Minuten“-Modus und der exzellenten technischen Präsentation. Kein absolutes Muß für Action-Freaks, Leute mit Hang zu niedlichen Spielen sollten in jedem Fall zugreifen.

...heh, selbst in der redigierten Fassung wird das hier mein kürzestes Review, wenn ich mich bei diesem Absatz kurz fasse. Deshalb nur noch ein kurzes Fazit: Coryoon ist ein wirklich außerordentlich nettes, etwas anderes Shoot´em up. Go play it some time.

Parallax-scrollende Hintergünde, oberputzige Charaktere und ein Soundtrack, der sofort ins Gehör übergeht - das ist Coryoon: Child of Dragon. Mit dem Titel haben wir es mit einer weiteren Sprite-Orgie zu tun - im positiven wie im negativen Sinne. Insbesondere die Obst-Items, welche Gegner nach Beschuss hinterlassen, erschweren häufig die Sicht und führen nicht selten zu Übersichtsproblemen. Nichtsdestotrotz hat Coryoon: Child of Dragon das gewisse Etwas um hin und wieder ans Pad zu fesseln. Holt euch den Titel, sofern ihr in mal zu einem fairen Preis sichtet.

Later bosses have even more vicious forms of attack and can take a good deal of punishment, as well. No, while Coryoon might look like a Saturday morning cartoon, its manic nature is more than capable of causing arthritis in the ol' thumb joints.
Retrogaming History (Mar 06, 2008)
Pur nella sua linearità e semplicità il gioco risulta comunque vincente, anzi proprio in virtù di queste caratteristiche; Coryoon non pretende di essere nulla di più che la caccia al punteggio migliore, ma lo fa con stile, simpatia e competenza tecnica, ed è questo ciò che conta.
