    With its super-cute graphics, amazing soundtrack and polished gameplay, Offspring Fling! surely is a great puzzle platformer, and so far the best game in Kyle Pulver's portfolio.

    Catchy logical platformer introduces original concept of mother-offspring cooperation in hundreds of creative puzzles. [May 2012]

    Offspring Fling! feels like a good old 2D platform game. With more than a hundred levels to keep you puzzling for hours, Offspring Fling! is a deep game that will keep you entertained for hours. And that's exactly what we want from a platform game.

While the elements are slightly lacking, it encapsulates a lot of what was fun and precious about gaming when the older gaming community were but little kids. The light hearted music, mildly enjoyable gameplay, and vast array of things to do really add to the game. The few things I didn't like, of the few things, would probably be a lack of dialogue, or depth to the storyline. I digress, though, if you want a game to pick up and play casually and savor the moment, this game would probably be your best bet. I have to compliment this game for all it's efforts in trying to be as retro as possible. Audaciously bold move, which I respect. Expand

TheOffspring Fling is an amazing game with multiple levels of depth. It combines platforming with time trial racing and a bit of puzzling. The more skillful you become and the faster you get at clearing levels, the more of the game you discover. With the game's organic secret discovery, you get out what you put into it. Expand

The music isWhile the gameplay mechanics are fun and interesting, this fresh approach to the puzzle/platform genre never actually impresses. The music is good, but there aren't enough tracks to remain enjoyable. The 16-bit art style is cute, but the main character's design is too derived from Nintendo's Kirby. Expand

You have to carry your "offspring" across the level and you can "fling" them across gaps, pits, traps, etc., hence the clever name. Very disappointing because when I saw this for sale they advertised 100 levels but each one is under a minute (speedruns are encouraged). Would not recommend this for anyone because $8 for 2 hours tops of gameplay is not a good value. Expand
