An average game with an awesome price

The graphics are really great, thought it takes a lot of performance for so little.
Also, it's clear that the developer mixed Mario with Donkey Kong Country Returns with Little Big Planet and, while I think the Mario part was a tribute, the Little Big Planet style was more of a copy. Papercraft is a nice theme to explore and they really didn't have to make it look just like Little Big Planet.
The soundtrack is cute, but gets really repetitive after some time.
The controls are great, though there's no explanation about the double jump and I couldn't navigate any menus using the keyboard. The problem with that is on the first stage, where you need to keep jumping on the "?" switch to see instructions and reach to your mouse every time to proceed, that's really annoying.
Of course these are things we can close our eyes to enjoy the game, but the thing is that the game have the wrong balance of complexity on gameplay and level design.
You have hearts (life metter), you collect silver buttons, gold buttons, paper clips and you also get points for revealing flowers and mushrooms hidden on the ground. Sorry, that's too much!
On the othe hand, the level design does not offer challenge enough to make you WANT to play the game.

Graphics: 4/5 (great, but lacks originality)
Sound: 2/5
Controls: 4/5
Gameplay: 2/5

Overall: 3/5
It's an ok game that's really worth $.99, but don't expect hours of fun with it. Maybe your kids will enjoy it better.

Great some improvements would make it fantastic -more levels

I like it. It's fun addictive and has great graphics. There could be a few more levels though. I'd also appreciate it if you made it so you could skip over the video clips in boss levels. It gets pretty annoying to watch everytime. Also I don't see why when your wearing a hat you can't wear glasses or headphones. A few minor changes would be great. I really want more levels to explore. Otherwise the game is fluid, not TOO hard and always interesting. Definitely worth one dollar!


Think Mario meets Little Big Planet

Fantastic game thus far! I'm not far into it yet but so far the level design and the graphics have kept me entertained. The controls are awesome as well. It reminds me a lot of Little Big Planet in its design, but without the hassle of that game. It's a straight forward platformer with collection elements… like the old Mario games. Highly recommended, especially for only $.99.
