I always avoided indie games as I assumed low budget meant low quality. This was the first indie game I played (back on the xbox 360). I was really amazed by the cute cartoon graphics, the fantastic characterisation without using any voice acting, the humour and just the originality of the game. I knew nothing about the game when I bought it and so when you first discover Maw's main skill I was taken by surprise and instantly fell in love the characters and the game.
The Maw opened my eyes to indie games. Indie games like this are just wonderful original experiences that you don't get from big budget AAA titles. They may not have the best graphics, physics or cameras but they can be really well crafted experiences that you remember for years.
The game is great for kids, and adults, and although the graphics look a bit dated in places it is still a great game to play now. It is easy to complete the levels but it is a challenge to get 100%.
Some people complain about the camera, but with a controller the game plays very well and you can control the camera. Using the controller I never had any camera problems.
p.s. If you are trying to get 100%, don't let Maw use the tongue move. Always feed Maw one at a time. I am pretty sure that sometimes the tongue move does not give you the full count.
