Gorgeous but don't expect help.
This game has gorgeous graphics, which is why it's a shame that you can't interact with them more, or even zoom in on some of the details. You play a small insect that travels around the screen (once you figure out how to get him moving, as the hint system is a bare minimum that rarely actually helps), and you touch various triggers on the screens where the insect travels to produce mini-game puzzles that you need to solve. The insect travels at micro speed, as slow as can be, and there's no way to speed him up. You'll need a lot of patience for this game, not the least of which will be spent trying to figure out what the heck you need to do in the mini-games, for which no clues or help is available. Touch recognition is hit and miss, which doesn't help the game play, and is quite often delayed too, so pay attention and try things a couple times to see if they "take". Still, it's not too difficult once you figure out the theme, and I did finish all five levels. For the innovative idea of the theme, and the beauty of the game, I'd rate this 5 stars. For the game play, I'd rate it a 3, max. Thus my final rating of four stars.
3rd time charm
I tried to like this game. Deleted and ended up giving it another chance again and again. First, I'm not crazy about the art style. The artist is talented, just not my groove I guess. That's really the only good thing. The intro forces you to watch credits- ya credits- for what seems like 5 minutes. You finally start the game and have no clue what type of game it even is. Tap here? Slide there? What's this button do... what the heck, it sent me back to the menu?! Oh god, I have to wait ten minutes just to get back to where I just was! Oh the loading times between anything is ridiculously long and there is no joy in the puzzles. You are so confused about what is going on in this game that you just want to get through whatever is in your way of progressing and trying to make sense of it. Then you finally realize that you are simply performing various processes of a bugs life. No story, no direction and no fun. I'm sorry, I don't want to be mean but it's got nothing going for it and slow as molasses.
Beautiful and challenging
Love the artwork! You must use your brain to figure out how to solve the puzzles with no clues. Be patient and the solution will come to you. And watching the credits at the beginning for a minute or two is not too much to ask. A lot of hard work went into this game. This is one of my favorites!
