Yes another game that could have been good but the programers said No we cant make a good game so let us mess it up by putting in a camera that is more of a henderance to the game then a help and lets make it so the only people that can play the game are the ones that Have Perfect timing and reflexes of a Mongoose. When will the programers get it through their Thick Skulls that in a Platformer game it is really really nice to be able to see what your trying to jump onto? My Guess is never because that would mean they would actually have to put in some work on doing it and they would also have to play test the game before they put it out and, God Forbid that a game was actually tested before it is Published im guessing that they just dont care if their games can be played because that would mean they care about more then the All Mighty Dollar. Software Companies only care about how much money they can rip the gamers off for by selling games that are Like this one better suited as coasters then an actual game!

This game is WAAAAYY out there. I seriously think the makers on this game were smoking peyote while they were designing it! The characters are very strange and there are some really strange elements and events. For instance, if you walk up to a certain girl character and bug her too much, she threatens to set you on fire. This game, I think, has content that is really meant for adults or older teens. Unfortunately, the gameplay is meant for kids. It's extremely repetitive and it's fairly simple to figure out the puzzles in the game. It's also so trippy and the colors are so odd that the game gave me a headache after playing it for about a half hour. It's not a badly made game, it just wasn't really for me and I think they should have decided on a specific age demographic for the game as it is all over the map.
