    A strong hybrid between a 2D platform and a puzzle game, with an amazing amount of solutions and intelligent boss fights. It’s an old game, and it shows even in this new edition, but it’s still a pretty good title.

    It’s a shame that it’s not a remake or a reboot (that this charming game deserves), but just a straightforward port with unattractively upscaled 480p visuals, poor controller support, primitive physics and flat out horrible companion AI. [04/2016, p.52]

    This game gives us a lot of fun! The levels are very interesting. We never know what will happen on next screen. My daughter loves this game much :-)
