There’s not necessarily anything wrong with more casual and newbie-friendly games that are lacking in complexity. Where Ziggy the Chaser goes a bit more wrong, beyond its looks that make it resemble a title from a couple of generations ago, is that its level designs and structure just feel very haphazard. You’ll control your elephant while trying to collect gems, moving through an environment full of traps, stairs, power-ups, and a few enemies to boot. It doesn’t take long to get the hang of things after some trial and error, but there’s just nothing that makes the overall experience memorable or deep, it’s just all very bland in the end.
