Corbid! A Colorful Adventure is a children’s puzzle game that adults can also play. You are an elephant named Corbid who needs to get through levels and take down bosses by solving puzzles.

Corbid! A Colorful Adventure Gameplay

The basic ludic interactions you have with Corbid! A Colorful Adventure is rolling, dragging, and shooting paint at surfaces. You need to roll across ramps and boxes, drag boxes onto buttons and holes, and you can use different colored paints to open doors and move paint-loving slimes. Everything is colorful and friendly, and the actions are easy in the game. Here is everything I liked about Corbid.

Small lanterns illuminate the path leading towards a bright, verdant area with green hedge-like structures. The scene has a dreamlike quality, with a soft focus on the glowing elements on the ground, adding to the magical atmosphere of the game's environment. Published on: LadiesGamers.
As part of the puzzle process, you can pick up different colored fruit and use them as paint to color different objects.

The Pros of Corbid! A Colorful Adventure

Your rolling ability is probably some of the smoothest, most fluid once you get it going; it feels really good to corner, pivot, and even do a 180 in the middle of play.

It seems like the developers put a lot of effort into making the movement and action fluid and fun, and it really shows. I enjoyed the way Corbid slides from location to location, over jumping puzzles, and over all the water that instantly kills you if you fall in. There is almost no downside to death; keep in mind that this seems to be a game for children, so mistakes are quickly forgiven and forgotten. All the “enemies” in the game are actually friendly, and they impede your progress by giving you hugs. This makes this a wonderful action puzzle game for kids of any age who are old enough to read.

A dialogue box with a portrait of Camknat, who has a simplistic and cute design, shows the text 'They're friendly.' This hints at interactions with charming creatures within the game's bright and cartoony world. Published on: LadiesGamers.
Hug a slime time!

Each level is a selection of different puzzles, all working together to try to keep you from getting to the portal at the end. There are even puzzle-based boss battles, which are a little weird, but they fit the overall theming of the rest of the game. I was surprised at how interesting and fun the first boss fight was; he hides in a barrel, and then that barrel and some empty ones are mixed up, and you have to follow it and choose the right barrel to win.

The Cons of Corbid! A Colorful Adventure

While Corbid! A Colorful Adventure is a lot of fun, I did have a few issues with it. There are a lot of grammatical errors, which happen in almost every game. But it was pretty obvious that the person translating Corbid into English knew English as a second language. This didn’t bother me often; it was pretty annoying when I was trying to figure out what the instructions were trying to tell me. But I know some people find that massively distracting.

The text discusses a change in fashion trends affecting garden visits and proposes organizing a tournament to revive interest. The text box is stylized as a lined paper with a whimsical illustration of two creatures, one holding a paintbrush. The surrounding area features yellow walls and checkered floors, resembling a game board, with a vibrant outdoor setting visible in the distance. A prompt 'PRESS E' invites player interaction.

There’s even a story that you can piece together with little journal entries.

Each level has a selection of items to complete: a certain number of crystals to be found, a Camknat bot to fix, and journal entries. There is a screen for each level that says what’s in each level to find, but those don’t pop up when you complete a level.

There’s no “Congrats, you found all the Crystals!” page that you would expect to see at the end of the level. You actually have to interact with the level to see if you have completed all the items inside. If you are a completionist and really like knowing if you have everything from every level, this will be extremely annoying to you.

In-game dialogue from 'Corbid! A Colorful Adventure' featuring the character Camknat, who is seen from behind, pointing towards a hole in a hedge wall with an arrow indicator above it. The surrounding environment is lush and verdant, with star-patterned greenery and soft lighting. The dialogue box at the bottom displays Camknat saying, 'Look Corbid! A hole!' indicating an element of exploration and discovery in the game. Published on: LadiesGamers.
Yes, you’ve explained this to me already…

I understand that this is a kids’ game, but the tutorials are very intrusive. Not only are they unskippable, but they are extremely condescending. I am pretty sure that even children would not need the Camknat fixing tutorial every single time they try to fix one of these little bots. It’s intrusive and almost insulting after a while.

The opening cutscene for each level is thankfully skippable, but the rest are not, and some really dizzying movement cutscenes in Corbid made me rather ill to watch. There were a couple of moments when I was heading into a tunnel, and the camera would become possessed and just kind of roll around and shake violently. I had to close my eyes for these scenes. It would have been better if I could just skip them and not worry about motion sickness.

The wall is part of a larger whimsical structure with checkered and striped patterns. This playful scene hints at the game's exploratory aspects, where players can look through telescopes to discover new areas or secrets. The environment blends indoor elements with an outdoor setting, featuring green trees with star patterns, creating a blend of domestic and fantastical spaces. Published on: LadiesGamers
It’s like a rollercoaster.

There is also a puzzle where you need to roll through a maze in the dark, and sometimes you have to do that same puzzle like three or four times, and it gets old very fast. It would be better if you only had to solve it once, then you could roll back and forth without doing the puzzle after the first time.

I had to do this maze like four times.


I like Corbid! A Colorful Adventure: it’s a colorful, innocent, and fun little puzzle game that is family-friendly. The main character is cute, and I love that he can change colors. You get friends and fix robots, and all sorts of other fun puzzle things. It has really good movement, interesting puzzles, and cute characters and animation. It has issues, but overall, I like it. I think with a few fixes, Corbid! A Colorful Adventure could be a really good game.

Final Verdict: I Like it
