Really fun platformer for a fair price. I love the music and cute graphics and the gameplay is good. It also runs really well on my potato laptop so that's nice. If you are looking for a quick cute relaxing platformer then this is for sure worth it.


Jogo curto, simples e muito eficiente no que propõe. Os gráficos são muito agradáveis e os controles são ÓTIMOS, o que considero fator principal pra ter garantido tanta satisfação durante toda a gameplay. Uma coisa que considero um dos poucos pontos fracos são o primeiro e segundo chefes que são rasos até demais, mas o terceiro é muito bom porque ele é muito mais uma fase do que um chefe, pique as sessões de perseguição do Rayman Origins ou do Meat Boy.

E outro ponto fraco é a falta de fases, poxa! Queria poder consumir mais conteúdo desse jogo porque o level design é muito bacana.


Don't let the price fool you, sure the game is simple and short but it's very much worth $4 if you're a fan of platformers. The movement feels really good and each level introduces new gimmicks. Recommended

I like how you made a game for kids, except your first 3 customers are myself and my 35+ friends who play casual games where you save animals. Look, it's not a bad game, it's cute, it has decent controls, some collection content including a ton of achievements, and even a few nice character skins that you can unlock, plus a coop mode, although I have not tried it. Nothing wrong with it really, just don't expect a ton of challenge, it's very much a casual collection game with very little resistance.

The actual game is about 90 minutes for a total of 9 levels (some of them are boss fights), you can get a bit more if you wanted to 100% everything. I assume those are owl eggs which gives you some street credit, you are saving owls, and using owls to fly and hover - owls are cool, and that is objectively true. The only problem I had were the random frame drops, I thought they were put there to make certain sections easier, but I am guessing it just lags in some locations (granted it was not frequent). If I can give my perspective, don't limit your game design to a younger audience, I mean take me for example, I finished battletoads when I was like 8, and all PS1 horror games when I was 10, if anything kids are much better at games and perfectly fine at overcoming any challenges, there is no point limiting your game design and difficulty to a certain audience when they are playing more mature games than I do.

Surprisingly the visuals were not bad, very good feel to the animation overall, very clean I would say. That said, I thought the soundtrack was kinda lacking, just felt like filler to me, needs to be more complementary to the game.


(+) Actually good controls, and almost no issues (yep, I said almost)
(+) Hey good achievement support, and some collection content too.
(+) Looks alright, I thought the animation was cute.
(+) Coop/optional character skins


Nitpicks: - sometimes the game gets very slow, I am not sure why, does not happen a lot though. Would make more sense if you would not lose eggs at all unless you completely restarted the level. I felt the game was a bit too short, needed at least one more zone, maybe snow levels. For the most part, I think the music didn't complement the game.

Overall Thoughts: 7/10

Anyway, I can't take this review too seriously, for such a low price it's alright, I kinda wanted it to be just a bit longer, maybe just one more location, but not bad overall, assuming I was still a kid, I am 32 this month XD. Don't be afraid to make the game a bit more challenging, these devils are better at games than I am, if you make a good game, they will still play it, no matter who it targets.
