    only two parts of the game where you die one of them a deleted scene and there is no penalty to dieing but the game is some wiked cute fun. it WILL make you laugh at times no matter who you are and the soundtrack is amazingly enjoyable to listen to.

    First off: Yea, the game is a bit repetitive and easy and the visuals are dated. Also the landscape often looks somehow similar but overall the graphics are fitting the game nicely. And for its age I also think it could be cheaper but just wait until there is major sale. Usually it goes there for under 5

    The Maw is a fine little romp for people who feel the platformer genre doesn't get enough respect these days. It's also a great game for parents searching for something to hand off to a young child. The Maw is fairly linear and there isn't a great amount of depth to it, but its two main characters are adorable and the pacing is spot on.
  2. Treat The Maw as a casual half hour game and you'll be well satisfied, but don't expect any maw than that. Sorry. [June 2009, p.75]
  3. Inventive, smart and adorable, but it plays oh so slowly. [May 2009, p.71]
