Cute but falls short

This was disappointing because it sets the bar for being a great little adventure game. Very charming characters with entertaining scenes and a terrific art style. The story and writing is fresh and funny, I love the squirrel parody humor. For the most part the puzzles are typical point-and-click style, and rather simple, yet they add to the entertaining humor of the game very well.

Yet the final puzzle seemed a bit glitchy. I knew what to do, and did it as the clue directed, but the game wasn't always recognizing my taps. Also, sometimes the bicycle came floating out of solid wall instead of the tunnel, which also indicates some bugginess (finally the "solution" worked, but I hate action puzzles in a narrative game anyhow).

Most disappointing is, after a few short chapters, it's over. No matter the cost of a game, it needs to have more content and substance to be worthwhile. It felt like the story didn't get off the ground and there needed to be more going for it at the end. It's always more of a letdown when a game shows such potential but falls short of expectations.

Great game!

This game is a lot of fun and has the most wonderful artwork, a great storyline, and lots of humor. Doggins, the lead character, is adorable and the monocled squirrel is such a creative villain. Take your time, relax and just enjoy the experience. With life always running at a break-neck pace, it's really nice to relax and enjoy a quiet adventure alongside a charming hero like Doggins. The hand drawn artwork, the color palette used, and the attention to detail makes it a joy to play this game. Don't miss the little details, like watching Doggins walk in the dark (the only thing seen, the white of his eye as he walks), and the choice of just right the music for the game. (Hint: You have a choice of music, don't miss it.) All in all, a great first game by Brain and Brain. I can't wait until the release of their next game - Burly Men at Sea. Google it and see what's coming. This is a great game, able to be played by all ages, with no annoying in app purchases.
