The one problem I have with this game
let me start by saying I love this game. I like its minimalistic art style, its music, and its storybook narration. but the game is not perfect.

the big problem I've been noticing while playing is you are forced to do lots of tedioous busy work just to get to the meat of the puzzle. for instance, there are lots of sections early on where you have to climb stairs by using some of your characters as in between stairs for the characters that cannot jump very high. this is fine but it starts to happen over and over for stair after stair. it doesnt test your intelligence. it just wastes time and isnt fun. its not just climbing stairs either. there are lots of different manuevers that you have to do over and over across the levels that is just kinda repetitive and somewhat tedious.

now this isnt a major gripe. it doesnt ruin the game. it only tarnishes it a little bit, but theres lots of great content in here. I just wish the game was only clever usage of characters.

I agree with you, the were moments in the game where it felt like busy work. But for the most part it avoids it, but the are some sections which are really tedious, especially if you mess them up.

I'm glad I'm not alone. its probably hard to avoid in a game where you control so many characters like this. the worst parts were early on.

Yeah agreed. Thinking about it, that was probably the weakest aspect of the game. Everything else was pretty brilliant though. I love this game too.
I agree as well; that "busy work" was simply time consuming and irritating, but it (and the not as stellar captioning method) is the only negative thing I can really think to mention about the game.
