Deceptively challenging puzzles.
Brilliant design loaded with gameplay depth.
Varied levels sporting wideranging objectives and different types of goo.
Surreal sense of humor.
Well-crafted physics-based puzzles.

The controls can't always keep up with the action.
Visuals aren't as vibrant as they could be given the cartoony premise.
No tweaking options for graphics or controls.
