Old memories came flashing back as I took on the challenge of a platform style game that certainly had me scratching my head....

The hallmark of a great ‘casual’ game is that it takes elements from existing game types, wraps them around a new or innovative gameplay twist, and turns it all into something that feels fresh. It is how games like Plants vs. Zombies or...

International Review By Bouweenpc on 100

De geluidseffecten zijn heel eenvoudig gehouden; meer dan het functionele hoef je niet te verwachten. Wel erg mooi is de muziek. De kalme en serene klanken vullen de dromerige visuele stijl uitstekend aan. Waarschijnlijk is het ook vanwege de rustige...
