  1. While it is a little short at six hours, Red Fly Studios' inaugural Wii game is a fantastic 3D platformer with amazing music, wonderful art direction, solid puzzles, and a great sense of exploration.

The art-style is great, and makes for a pretty impressive-looking game, with a great sense of humour.

    Some of the aspects that made this game such a fun adventure game, is that the little mushroom fella you play as, combines some of these different items he finds thoughtout the world to make weapons of them. Like a razor blade, a piece of sticky gum, and maybe a match-stick. And he uses these weapons to defeat enemies, which usually are rats, bugs etc.

    The game is pretty short, about 7 hours in my experience, but you'll have fun most of the time, which is what is most important, Imo. I don't think there are many copies of this game lying around, so pick it up if you come by it, it is usually pretty cheap.

    A truly unique, and fun platform/adventure game, which defintitely is worth playing for the price it usually goes for.

While the game does mix it up greatly with the use of the psychic powers the is still pretty short. The style is great, the music is fitting, some of the levels are well designed (a map would have been nice) and the characters were pretty silly and the weapons were cool. You get the sense that this was a fun game to work on.
    A few things wrong, besides the short length, were that everything you can pick up with your psychic powers feels like a cardboard box. You don't sense the weight of the heavier objects. The camera was pretty finicky, which most 3D platformers also suffer from. A lock on targeting system would be have awesome for this game. Level lay out can be confusing at times as well. Sometimes there so much detail in a level you just get lost trying to find the next platform to jump to.
    Overall, a fun short game, great for a rental or for cheap in the discount bins. Older gamers may find it too easy, but it's whatever. Support the independent guys.

    What was a pleasant beginning got taken out and taken back after just two hours due to getting utterly fed up from the laziest camera ever What was a pleasant beginning got taken out and taken back after just two hours due to getting utterly fed up from the laziest camera ever seen in a 3d game. Prepare to get constantly hit by unseen enemies (on a par with Death Jr...shudder) and stuck in holes you can't see the way out of. Full Review »
