Is it a soccer game? Is it a platformer? Well, it's a little of both.
The Adventures of Kid Kleets, or Soccer Kid in Europe, is an interesting game that combines soccer tricks and your typical platform style game. The world cup has been stolen and destroyed by aliens, and it is your job to travel the world to find these pieces. In this game, everyone hates soccer players, including robots and small rodents. Their one mission in life is to flat out murder you and your ball.
We start the game off and OH GOD. What the fuck? Kid Kleets looks like the killer ventriloquist doll that is used in all of those shitty horror movies. Eh...okay moving on. You're a kid, with a ball. You can kick the ball at people and objects. You run around grabbing candy and other junk food, as well as grabbing cards of some sort. Once again, there is no real instructions other than don't die, so just go with it.

The music is pretty bland. It's not bad, it's not good, it's just there. Same goes for sound effects. Nothing impressive here.
Kid Kleets' graphics is a mixture of good and boring. The sprite animations are pretty neat, especially when performing some of the more difficult tricks with the soccer ball. The stages, however, are pretty lame. They suffer from the same problem as the music, a lack of creativity.
The gameplay for this game is hard to judge. It is fun, but only after you spend enough time figuring out all of the different kicks and tricks. I will say this, The Adventures of Kid Kleets is truly unique. They tried something new, and it worked to some extent. I think if they were to try again using today's hardware, they could make a pretty badass game
