    One of the best games that you can buy for your new Xbox One is an inexpensive download.

    Perfectly priced, and long enough to leave you satisfied but with room for dessert, this is a fantastic family-friendly puzzler that deserves a place on every Xbox One.

    Wow! This is another pleasant surprise game for the xbox one. This is one of the best downloadable titles I've played on any system. TheWow! This is another pleasant surprise game for the xbox one. This is one of the best downloadable titles I've played on any system. The production values are pixar-like. This is a great old school platformer that focuses on gorgeous backgrounds, simple gameplay mechanics, tight controls, and putting a smile on your face. What I love is that this is a thinking sidescroller but it also flows well. Its not just one puzzle after another. The game has a strong sense of progression than just the puzzles themselves. Also, the gameplay is creative and unique. I hope, this company makes more games like this one or at least with the soul of this one. Also, I hope Microsoft continues to help fund projects like these! One of my favorite games in awhile!! Totally recommend!!! Full Review »

    Okay, honestly, this game was better than expected. I really love side strollers.
    It's real fun, and something different to offer. The story is great, and one thing I really like is the gameplay, controls, and setting.
    It's worth it.

    Absolutely better than expected.
    Anyways, Merry Christmas everyone!

    Amazing game with amazing pixar graphics, cool story which reminds me of old classical game stories, retro games on NES and SNES. AmazingAmazing game with amazing pixar graphics, cool story which reminds me of old classical game stories, retro games on NES and SNES. Amazing gameplay with awesome mechanics. The whole idea of the pencil drawing items in the real world is a good idea, and while it was decently accomplished on IOS and PC, the game is way more fun with its amazing graphics. Full Review »
