Tiny and Big is a game which, just from looking at it, doesn't seem too great. But once you start to play it, it reveals its greatness.
The game follows a weird-looking "Tiny" and his attempt to retrieve his grandpa's underpants that a similarly weird-looking "Big" has stolen.
The basic premise in this game is that Tiny is an inventor, and you use his odd little gadgets to help you through the game. Included inventions are A Radio that talks, A laser that can cut rocks, a grappling gun to pull said rocks, and a rocket gun that can push those rocks.
The simulation behind the destructible environment is very good. The game can handle just about any cut you throw at the destructible rocks, and disintegrates any cut rock that is irrelevant to simulate.
This game can be controlled with a controller, or a keyboard and mouse. Both work, but I find that the mouse offers more precision.
The way the levels are designed is very good, offering pretty large areas to explore, and subsequently cut apart and destroy. It really does a good job of making the place look like an old civilization.
The cartooney cell-type shaded graphics in this game are very nice, and the textures applied to the environment are likewise good at portraying an abandoned desert. I do find that the textures applied to character models are a bit odd though.
The sounds in this game are great, both from the environment itself and the weird sounds the characters make instead of speaking. That goes well with the speech bubbles.
The great thing about this game is that the physics, sounds and look of the rocks make it so incredibly satisfying to just cut up the massive rock structures and enjoy them falling apart.
My only major complaint is that it is far too easy to die in this game by running into a rock that is moving. The devs should really have raised the limit of how much force is needed to kill the player, in my mind.
Overall, this is a gem of a game that I don't think has enough attention. Styled like a playable comic book, with a great gameplay experience, it is definitely worth a play.
