  1. Old-school but innovative
    by KKMM, Finland - Oct 15th 2012

    Classy 2D adventure game. A lots of very clever features that enriches the playing experience throughout the game. Nice music, too, and simple but charming graphics, and, most of all, the game has character!

    It turned out to be very relaxing to play this game, as the difficulty level is perfect: you almost never get stuck but it takes some effort to pass certain phases.

    And I love the idea of female character that has enormous powers but feather-like movement.

    Minuses: save game is lousy. It only takes you back to the beginning of an episode, although there are save points on the way. so if you quit playing between episodes/worlds, you need to start from the beginning of that world. This feels pointless, but in the end it wasn't such a big deal, really. Also, the game could be longer, but then again it's just 10 bucks.

    I didn't find the controls hard at all, quite the opposite, enjoyed figuring out how to jump from a to b, or how to get certain object to move with you.

    The game is just filled with nice details, like the ability to move objects while you yourself move to other direction, the power make big chunks of concrete blocks fly, to be able to control wind, and so forth.

    I can recommend this if you just want to get your mind off of other things but not learn a complicated playing system. just the kind of game i was playing 20 years ago with C-64 & Amiga 500!

  2. physics game, difficult control
    by cya nogen, USA - Mar 12th 2011

    I found it hard to move the character in this game, maybe I am not very used to platform games, jumping flying etc. this is 2D game where you travel towards right of screen, over obstacles and enemies. I quitted because it got annoying trying to jump over this and that. Story started interesting but it was not well integrated with gameplay. This game is for you if you want little thinking but more finger agility.
