Bluey: The Videogame review

Bluey, the beloved Australian children's show, has leaped from the small screen to the gaming console with "Bluey: The Videogame." Designed to emulate the quirky charm and vibrant visuals of the award-winning series, this game aims to deliver the Bluey brand of fun to the fingertips of its enthusiastic young fan base. Join us as we don our reviewer's hat and take an in-depth look at what this game has to offer, examining it from the perspectives of gameplay, graphics, features, and overall value.

Right off the bat, "Bluey: The Videogame" impresses with its visual fidelity to the much-loved television show. Boasting an animation style that is a spitting image of Bluey's signature look, the game is a visual treat. The characters and their movements mimic those of the series to the point where they're nearly indistinguishable, creating an immersive experience for fans.

Transitioning from television to gaming, the developers have adeptly transformed familiar backdrops from Bluey's world into engaging 2.5D environments. These settings, including the Heeler household and iconic backyard, manage to maintain the aesthetic of the show while introducing a new depth that lends itself well to the gameplay.

While "Bluey: The Videogame" nails the visual aspect, its gameplay leaves much to be desired. The game consists of just a handful of maps and a storyline that can be swiftly completed within an hour. For parents and gamers used to more substantial content for the price point, the game's brevity might come off as underwhelming.

The cooperative mode, a feature with the potential for fun family experiences, unfortunately, falls short due to technical hiccups and imprecise controls. Instances of characters freezing in place and finicky interactions with game objects add a layer of frustration to the overall experience.

The game introduces several mini-games throughout the episodes, designed to offer variety and replayability. From Keepy Uppy to Magic Xylophone, each mini-game is themed around Bluey's playful adventures. However, these diversions struggle to maintain engagement, with some plagued by glitches that mar the gaming experience.

"Bluey: The Videogame" finds itself in a tenuous position—it beautifully captures the spirit and visual appeal of the show, yet as a gaming experience, it falls short of expectations. The steep price point, in light of its minimal content and gameplay issues, makes it difficult to recommend to anyone beyond the most die-hard Bluey fans.

In sum, "Bluey: The Videogame" bursts with the color and charm of its animated counterpart, serving as a faithful visual adaptation. However, when it comes to delivering a satisfying gaming experience, the title struggles with limited content, functionality problems, and a price tag that overshadows its merits. For fans of the series, the game might hold appeal purely for its aesthetic and the joy of interacting with beloved characters. Otherwise, as a standalone gaming venture, it cannot quite justify its presence on the shelf next to more polished and substantial titles.


  • Authentically captures the 2D animation and charm of the Bluey television series;

  • Creates a visually appealing 2.5D world that respects the show's aesthetics.
