"Collect this, collect that, I'll give ya something to collect about." 5/10
This game is nowhere near as bad as the majority of reviews on here make it out to be, and I feel like some of the negativity is coming from people who simply just don't like this type of game. Call it lazy, call is uninspired, but a lot of people grew up on games like this one, and sometimes it's just nice to play something that doesn't have you wanting to tear your hair out every ten minutes. Does that mean this game is great? No. But it's really not that bad.
As casual as games come, 'Canyon Capers' is a simple 2D side-scrolling item collecting game, and not a tough as nails super precise platformer. Which I'm sure some people thought that it might be before purchasing it, or deciding to get it in a bundle. Sure it doesn't have the best sound effects, or music, or level design, or art style, or anything really. But you know what? I've played a ton of games that were much worse than this one, and at least 'Canyon Capers' does what it sets out to do; give players the ability to collect coins, fruits, and gems!
Sure, this game is extremely basic, as is the level design and overall challenge, but that's kind of what these games are all about. So if you're in the mood to just relax and waste a few minutes, then this game can be an enjoyable experience. Oh yeah, and I'm pretty sure that this game is for children, ya know, kids. But I suppose all of you people who gave this game a negative review hate on 'Reader Rabbit' too, or maybe you thought the movie 'Muppets in Space' was too "juvenile"; well to hell with all of you I say! Now everyone, into the canyon!
