Where's the challenge?
Purchased the three Mikey games in a bundle hoping to finally find a solid platformer but was disappointed with this one just playing through the first couple worlds. The controls and movement of the character, though, are near flawless, and the soundtrack is very fitting. But my biggest criticism of the game is its achievement structure. Getting through each level in under a certain amount of time awards you 1-3 stars, then a bonus for collecting all the coins, plus the hidden coin (finding it is a nice addition to the game). However, the levels themselves are far far too easy. Take a note from the classic platformers, the challenge should come from the difficulty of the level, not running through a simple level quickly.
This game is probably best suited for younger children and anyone desperate for a well controlled platformer willing to forgo a decent chunk of the difficulty.
While people may say that the game is not challenging, I strongly disagree. If you do end up purchasing it, you will get the most fun and challenge out of it by attempting to 100% it. The story is a bit short, but there are a plethora of bonus challenge levels. The costume shop is also an added bit of goofy fun. Over all, I'm giving 5 stars because it is a good, challenging, fun, and humorous experience.
The kids and I are addicted to this fun little app. The goofy costumes in the shop (pay with coins earned in the game) are awesome and there's a randomizer that's good for some laughs. Nice challenge looking for the Golden Shorts in story mode.
