There are so many problems that I don't know where to begin.
The game hand-holds you through the easiest bits of the game and completely neglects to tell you about harder parts. I think it's trying to have some 'puzzle solving' aspect to it, but instead just annoys.
The camera is awful as well. Most of the time it won't be pointing where you want to look and you'll have to move your character back and forth until it is. And if you stand still for a while, the camera will suddenly jerk in the direction your character is facing, which isn't usually where you want to look since it's so hard to be precise with his direction.
Which brings me to controls: Yes, they're awful as well. As noted, the walking controls aren't very precise... But the spraying controls aren't, either! You'd think a game based around spraying would at least get those controls right. But despite the targeting circle on the screen, there's no guarantee the spray will actually go there.
And one last thing: It starts you off with just vomit and water. After about 30 seconds of listening to that little demon vomit, you'll be ready to just pack up the game.
Very Average To Begin With But Impossible Stage 1!

I was looking forward to this one; the story sounded good, and the screenshots make it look like it would be a fun title. However the controls are basic, the textures are flat, and when you start stage 1 and after you get all the 4 map pices you go over and paint the symbol. Sounds simple; right; wrong; you make the symbol 100 times and it still does not recognize it. You will not be missing anything; skip it!!!
I played this game for about an hour. 50 minutes of that hour was spent trying unsuccessfully to draw an hourglass shape which would appease the capricious gods in charge of this game. I sent it right back without even getting to level 2.
