Good for the price, lots more potential for updates....
It's obviously not adapted for playing on a Mac; the instructions call for tapping and sliding things like on a touch screen, and often important portions of the puzzle areas are off-screen so you have to first move the guy to where the view shifts. Since gameplay is on a timer, anything that wastes time like that is aggravating. The "hilarity" of the game is in the dialog, which can get tedious (but you can skip it). Some of the repetitive sounds are a bit annoying. Also, if you access game settings during a game your score and progress data can get confused when you resume game play.
All that said, for three bucks it's still a good casual game and it's progressively more difficult to solve. Good for the squishy-matter! I hope Dedalord gives this some further development just for the Mac environment, as I'm sure it's a much better experience as-is on iOS devices. It deserves a more tailored version for the Mac specifically. Oh, and ignore the rating; kids younger than 9 will find this quite harmless.
Clever and cute!
This got 4 stars because there were a few times I got stuck and had no way of progressing. I wish there was a hint or skip feature that could be earned or unlocked. The dialogue is quirky, the graphics are crisp, and the gameplay fun.
Really enjoyable! Cool story and well designed puzzles. It's a must have for that price.
Hey, dzturbd, you can pan the camera just clicking on the floor and dragging! :)
