    Without any clear sense of purpose or direction, Page Chronica ends up falling flat, which is a shame, because with a core idea like the one it has, it could have been a contender for my game of the year.

    Clumsy design keeps it from doing anything unique or interesting with its main hook, a fact I find truly disappointing given how much promise it held.

    This sloppy adventure is best left locked in the book cabinet along with all of the other forgotten fairy tales.

    Page Chronica commits the cardinal platforming sin. It knowingly robs you of momentum, the very life blood of platformers from Mario to Meatboy. You have to stop moving to spell a word. You have to stop pushing forward, stop the timing of jumps, the dodging of dangers, the luck of the moment, to spell a W-O-R-D. Take away the muddy graphics, take away the abysmal soundtrack, take away boss battles with a bean stalk giant armed with floral-homing-missile-toe-fungus, and at it's core, at that stage just beyond concept, this game is simply, fundamentally, broken.
