  1. Perfect for younger gamers. Kids will love the cheerful colors, and all the cutesy characters like butterflies, sheep and fairies. Even the baddies look cute.
  2. While not the best 3D platformer on the market, it is definitely a massive improvement from "Enter the Dragonfly" and will provide gamers with some good fun.
  3. 70
    A definite improvement over "Enter the Dragonfly." It's a solid, albeit simple and slightly unimaginative platformer.
  4. It's got great control and lots of zany action. [Jan 2005, p.138]
  5. 60
    What's sad is that as nice as the game looks it just fails on gameplay.
  6. 40
    Even the bosses are cliché. They're all pattern-based, take three hits to defeat, and are unlikely to pose a challenge for anyone but the younger set who will find some of the platform action too hard.
