I'm really disappointed by the game:
The controls feels slow&the whole game has a bad timing/pace, it always feels that you are a few seconds too late. 
Do you know the moments you have to drive faster on some roads, otherwise the next traffic lights will turn red? Here you have no way to go faster&have to wait all the time.

There are enemies that come out of the background. Some fugly Stoneheads. There are usually at least 2 in a row. And if you don't jump exactly in the moment it jumps in the background into the newly formed hole, then you have to wait between the two heads, because they would crush you otherwise. The same with platforms that disappear.  Either wait or jump trough it. And so on, and so forth.

The graphics are functional but boring, because not a lot of variety is offered. The level design is, however, the greatest weakness.
They are often placed in the levels, where enemies are placed, but they have nearly no chance to hit the player, the players themselves can easily eliminate the enemies. So you wait until the bad guy comes into the picture&shoot, then wait again, etc.  Another time the enemies (eyes throwers) are placed at the far end of the screen so that you'll discover them far too late. Sometimes even complete parts are recycled in different levels.

The different layers are a nice idea, but a lot of lost potential here aswell. Here you jump in the background, sometimes in the foreground and that's it... doesn't feel special.

If you want to get all collectables, you sometimes have to jump down in a different layer and go back again exactly the same way to get back there, where you had to jump down.
The special levels are also nothing special. Nearly mono colored &nothing special at all.

It is overall a ok game for people who want to look at a formally 3DS 2D platformer with retro styled gfx, but the price is simply too high.
And there are way better games available for the PC in the same genre, lots of them for free. N

An extremely charming and well written adventure game that plays like if Guybrush was dropped into the universe of a darker adventure game. Highly recommended.

A game that survives on depth of dialog and story over flashy explosions. Trust your instinct and buy this game, the storyline alone is worth the tiny price. A real thick novel of a game!

An instant clasic. Although I thought Bungie had a hand in making 1/2 the game.

Difficult yet fun, I think 7 out of 10 is way fair.

Some bugs, the game needs a way to change the difficulty. Sometimes it's WAY to difficult to start my town. I am happy that the mant was taken out of the first year. Made me think it was my fault I was not prepared. Otherwise I am quite impressed!

Seriously one of the best mods I've ever played!
Everything was brilliant, and especially the mapping!
The concept of this game, is from what I've seen, not very common! And it is done in a great way! The concept is completed in such a great way!
10/10 for sure!

Game Review by Hezus on Nov 12th, 2012

I picked up the game from the Fall bundle and I must say I was very impressed. The story, the narrative mixing sadness and humor, the art style and especially the music. It really gets to you while playing and that's quite an achievement for such a simple game.

Like so many others I was really touched so I just want to go and vote 10/10. But now my reasonable self slowly returns and I notice that there is something wrong with this game: it's not a game. Gameplay-wise you basicly only walk around and activate story elements. Aside from the small (and rather easy) block puzzles, you don't really play anything.

If I had to be an honest reviewer and rate this as a game, it would be 7/10 since there simply isn't any gameplay. But I can't.. I simply can't. I still hear the echos of the beautiful piano music and recall the colour of the eyes of the cute little pixel art characters. I'm in love.. to hell with all reason! You're getting a 10 out of 10.

Now excuse me while I'm off to buy a toy platypus..
