  • Perhaps it’s me, and I’m just an impatient gamer, but this is one of those titles that simply takes too long to get off the ground and even when it did the story threads weren’t enough to justify too much generic gameplay. Moving between a light 3D platforming feel ala the PS1 generation (complete with large and generally empty spaces far too often) and some puzzle action with a 16-bit flair, you can see the effort around you at times but it just struggled to pull me in at all. It all has an arthouse feel to me, and perhaps there’ll be people who want to dig into the story that it’s trying to tell, but with such uninspired play I struggled to be interested.
