    Repetitive combat and boring level design. Puzzle portion only manages to slows the game down, as you constantly having to switch back and forth between puzzle and platform segments. The levels themselves lack challenge and creativity. Challenge comes froms bosses and trap rooms where you're trapped and must clear out the of respawning enemies that do high amounts of damage.

As a longtime fan of 2d platformers, I can say there really isn't anything special about this Henry Hatsworth. Mediocre at best. Expand

  1. Neither game is particularly great on its own, but the two intersect in clever ways to become much more than the sum of their parts. [Apr 2009, p.83]
  2. This is a delightfully risky experiment, and the end result is pure alchemy: the blending of two fiercely traditional genres into something both unique and entirely natural. [Apr 2009, p.125]
  3. While the platformer and the puzzler in Henry Hatsworth are perfectly competent, they're nothing special. Neither could be described as classic examples of their genre, and neither offer anything new. The switching mechanic does add interest, but not quite enough to make Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure a great game.
