Brutal battle ruins game
I was all set to give this game five stars on the strength of the graphics, the fun and endearing storyline, the music, the challenging and clever puzzles. There are a few too many timed puzzles for my liking - one required at least twenty tries - but it was shaping up to be an enjoyable game.
Until - small spoiler alert! - the second boss fight. A big red balloon-shaped thief is unbeatable, about sixty percent of the way through the game. Perhaps an extremely experienced and coordinated gamer with precise controls may eventually be able to defeat him, but I just haven't been able to. Unless you LOVE intense action and are good at games that require coordination and speed rather than methodical problem-solving, this game will likely frustrate you. Too bad.
