Puzzle platformer reborn. What to say about this game that hasn't been already said ? Well when I first got it, I was like yeah yeah yet another super mario clone. But then I started to submerge into it while me and my frieds were playing it and I started to realise how deep this game is. It loves to play hide and seek, loves dualities and metaphores. Nothing is as it seems at first glance...
*Minor spoiler ahead*
The 'home page' isnt a home page but a world of its own, the relationship with a princess isn't real, but it's rather a reflection of the protagonists conciousness, the world, the princess aren't real either they are metaphors for lost innocence that can never be retrieved no matter how hard we push... even the music composer hides her identity under a musculine name... It's hard to say more withou spoiling it for you, so if you like check the hidden meaning on the internet. But once you realise it you will never look at the game the same way. It's very dark even thoug it's trying to hide it behind its chlildish look
Should I recommend it ?
Definitelly yes! Its a great game, very inventive in many ways, even without caring about the background story. It plays nice, has an interesting game mechanics never seen elsewhere and a very, very dark atmosphere once you understand it... For me this represents everything that I expect from a game.
