Zero (Apr, 1990)
That apart, Kid Gloves is a sharply put together game. It's one of the few platform games that I've felt drawn back to play again and again and again and...
On the whole Kid Gloves doesn't really offer anything that you can't get in other platform games, with the possible exception of the magic feature and the "back in time" feature. Having said that this sort of game is fairly timeless, and cutie fans will probably not be disappointed to see another one on the shelves. Definitely one of the most attractive platform games to be released for some time.
ST Format (May, 1990)
Kid Gloves is a fun game that should prove adequate fodder for starved platform fans, but those not converted to this classic format should test the water carefully before parting with their dosh.
The One (May, 1990)
But Kid's not as pure as tradition should be... some of its more elaborate features like the spells and extra weapons tend to tarnish the finish, and the player isn't persuaded to make the most out of what's there replacing rather than improving features is not the answer. Ultimately, this competent, uncomplicated entertainment lacks suitable 'rewards', which is surprising given its otherwise slick nature. But what the heck - it's game for a laugh.
Génération 4 (Apr, 1990)
Comme vous pouvez le constater, Kid Gloves n'est pas un banal jeu de grimpette, mais une aventure pleine de ressources et d'imprévus, aux graphismes, qui sans exceptionnels sont variés et très colorés. Je dois avouer que j'y ai déjà passé pas mal de temps sans éprouver la moindre lassitude.
Kid Gloves has no more to offer than any other platform game, but it's still good fun. The presentation, apart from a strange shadow effect, is pretty minimal, and the collision detection is highly dodgy making gameplay frustrating at times - but it doesn't stop you wanting to have one more go. Twin World and Rick Dangerous are better examples of this type of game, but if you're tired of those two, this is a challenging alternative.
ST Format (Oct, 1991)
You really would have to be desperate to get something like this. It's devoid of any originality, gloss or interest, the graphics are poor and badly animated and there's simply nothing here at all to make you want to play. Not exactly Gremlin's finest hour.
[Budget re-release]
