Pros: Graphics are alright at 480. Fairly easy to master, fairly easy controls, and linear game-play.
Cons: Not easy using other characters; I found myself using Odd most of the time since he can run and fire. Menu interface was confusing at first and took a bit of time to get used to.
You do have a very linear game-play. If you are walking backwards, then you're going the wrong way. I was stuck on one level, one of the dessert level, where you have to follow a rock platform across open space. Took me a while to figure that out because the rock platform does not come back. Instead, it reappears where you stepped on it. So, if you are stuck and can't get across, you need to use the rock platform. Once you step on it, it won't stop until it reaches the other side. You have to scramble to get on it. Again, if you miss this it will reappear from the beginning. Don't worry if you fall off because you will respawn without damage.
The menu interface was a bit confusing. You have to go to the factory to start your missions. The menu pointing thing was awful at first. You would think that the pointy part of the pointer would be the place to hit enter. But, it's actually the dot in the circle. After hours of play, I still couldn't get used to that.
You have three other characters, but I was using Odd most of the time because he can run and shoot. There will be some instances where you have to use one of the other characters.
Most levels are very smooth. However, on the lava level, I forget the name of the world, the lag was terrible. It was just this one level so far as much as I played it.
I thought this was a good platformer. Maybe not for seasoned gamers, but I think it was developed for preteens and beginners. The addictive game-play ran out eventually for me and I did not care to finish it.
As with the other reviews this title may be more of a good rental.
