  1. A Lemmings clone that focuses on style at the expense of substance. Still fun and captivating, but too limited in the gameplay department. [Dec 2009]
  2. The game is easy enough for the casual player to jump right into, difficult enough to keep the gaming vets interest, and stylish enough to have both glued to their sets.
  3. It refreshes with its purity of purpose and ambition, even if, as a mechanising of the grieving process, it’s a game few will wish to return to once completed.
  4. 63
    There is a lot to like here, from a children's storybook art style to a unique take on 2D platformers. But the pieces don't come together to create an engaging experience that keeps you coming back.
  5. There's a lot of replay value, but it's ridiculously frustrating to get through this game the first time.
  6. This visually enchanting game tries to whisk you away to a young girl's dreams, but the often frustrating gameplay makes for a rude awakening.
  7. It's immediately obvious that a great labor was undertaken to create and maintain the art style throughout, but it's marred immediately by lazy game design that neither finds any synergy with the art nor shows any pride in the product.
