    Woolfe - The Red Hood Diaries is a cinematic fable featuring a vengeful Red Riding Hood. All grown up, cried out and armed with an axe, our heroine embarks on an odyssey to avenge the death of her parents. Buckle up for a surprising take on the Red Riding Hood tale as you know it, some good old-fashioned action platforming, fun combo-based hack ‘n slash combat and rewarding environment puzzles exploring the attractive fantasy universe.



    • A twisted fairy tale story – Our take on the Red Riding Hood legacy is not an ordinary bedtime story. Four years ago, Red Riding Hood’s father Joseph, lead engineer for Woolfe Industries, died in a work accident. At least, that’s what his family was told. All grownup, our heroine is ready to unveil the truth and present the bill for her tragic loss.
    • A Rich, Visual Experience – Woolfe's atmospheric artwork lets the player explore a rich fantasy universe centered around a city paralyzed with fear and occupied by tin soldiers. Sneak through the slums, descend into the city sewer system, run through the harbour and escape the city into an evil forest, where gravity, wolves and scary fairies are out to get you.
    • 2.5 D Action-Platforming – The tale’s 2.5 D levels combine the simplicity of side scrolling gameplay with three-dimensional puzzles to solve.
    • Fast, Axe Wielding Combat – Armed with her trusty axe, Red will need to skillfully execute combos to strike at her foes' weaknesses.
    • Deranged Fairy Tale Enemies – On her journey, Red faces some bloody encounters with “familiar fairytale faces” such as The Pied Piper, tin soldiers, big bad wolves, scary fairies and -of course- her nemesis B.B. Woolfe.

    review in progress

    Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries (Platformer)

    There are four tabs for options, click to see:


    • Resolution up to 1920x1080
    • Fullscreen or Windowed
    • vSync
    • (Multiple quality-related settings, which I won't list)

    Audio, with separate sliders

    • Master
    • Music
    • Ambient
    • Voice Over
    • Effects


    • Controller (cannot change moves, but some other options available)
    • Keyboard (can rebind keys)

    • Tooltips
    • Enable guard notifications
    • Enable backer guards
    • Enable combo effects
    • Language
    • Difficulty
    • UI scale

    The first thing I noticed about the game is the graphics.  The beautiful, beautiful graphics. Drool   How do I love them; let me count the ways!

    ... OK, OK, I won't bore you with too many details. ;)  You can see how lovely the artwork is for yourself by looking at the game's screenshots.  You have a little bit of movement available with the camera, but not a full 360 degrees.  Still, this is not a simple side-scrolling platformer, as you do have areas of 3D movement.  The quality of the graphics is consistent throughout the game, from the cutscenes to the gameplay, and every little thing in between.

    special moves under-utilized, and sometimes not explained
    key bindings on controller cumbersome; non-intuitive
    diary entries, shows which chapters to look in.
    finding W & baskets of food
    36 Achievements
    ONE wooden door that opens when you hit the action button
    falling damage

    If you want to start a new game, go to the Settings and choose Reset Profile.  YOU WILL LOSE ALL PROGRESS ON YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS if you do this, so achievement-hunters beware!
