This is clearly a poorly executed game. It feels very much like a cheaply developed Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis title, complete with extremely simple platforming gameplay. You control the character to move left, right, and flap/glide. Ostensibly you get some other abilities in the game, but the big draw seems to be the "grab and move" mechanic employed over much of the game. Move blocks, columns, and fireballs but don't expect to enjoy any of it. Your goal is to move through the level without dying until you reach a portal to the next level, with one or two fairly obvious secrets per level. In playing for almost an hour I have had very little changes in the gameplay with only one art style shown and one enemy type present.
This game is not worth $4, and it is representative of the quality of games available through the extremely limited WiiWare service.
This game is beautiful and a great quick fix. As a simple platformer you won't be disappointed. I think the App Store tends to promote a lot of poor games with unrefined mechanics and/or controls. This isn't one of them. Also if you have a daughter or niece ages 7-11 they will absolutely love this game. I showed this game to my niece age 8 and she showed it to her friends and now all they want to do is play this game when they come over ( because their parents won't let them make purchases on their iPads). If your on the fence about this game you can always download the lite version for free and try it out for yourself.
A must have game!
Great side scroller game play with plenty of challenges that keep you coming back. I just finished playing the entire game, picking it up where I left off every chance I had or the last 2 weeks. Very enjoyable, great graphics style - and fantastic controls. I just couldn't out this game down.
I look forward to the next version of this game - it is so good there has to be a next version - and will purchase it the day it comes out. I would love to see the developers add a difficulty selector. I'm going to go back and play again from the start and would love to crank up the challenges.
