While it puts up a reasonably good but approachable puzzle platforming challenge the sluggish pacing is a bit odd
My first impression playing this wasn’t necessarily a great one, though it isn’t meant to be quite as much of a slight as you could think. It reminded me of quite a few of the games I reviewed for Android tablets a while back. What I’m referring to with that is its general look (which is fine but not fantastic), but also that there’s a weirdly slow and just a bit floaty feel to the action that felt quite common among those titles. Now, the good thing is that this is a puzzle platformer, so that pacing isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but since there are some precision jumps you need to make to grab special items or avoid enemies this can be less than ideal. If nothing else there ends up being a bit of frustration at the time it can take to get most of the way through a stage, only to die, and then need to plod through the same preparations to get yourself back to the point you messed up at, and if you do it again it can be super aggravating. If you can keep your expectations in check and don’t mind some of the slowness fallout it may be worthwhile, but otherwise you’ll likely want to steer clear.
