Shiny the Firefly
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
This adorable action-adventure game, set in the middle of a picturesque garden, has you helping Shiny, the cute little firefly, to find his babies. You’ll have to fly, run, hide and defend yourself against a legion of enemies. Stubborn mosquitoes, hungry toads, mischievous plants, sneaky wasps, endlessly long centipedes and lots of other little, dangerous garden dwellers are going to get in your way and make your life difficult.
Your reflexes will be tested, as well as your wit and intellect as you navigate through this beautiful, colorful world helping Shiny in his search. All kinds of different animations let you know how Shiny’s feeling. So you’ll always know if he’s feeling happy, concerned, tired or angry. That will help you solve the trickiest situations in the game. Use your ability to shine skillfully: the babies can only follow Shiny when he is lit up, but that also makes him visible to his enemies…
Can you reunite Shiny with his family?
Another platformer, and not the bestmichalmichal | June 1, 2015 | See all michalmichal's reviews »
Even if I would like to recommend this little sweet game, it's difficult for me to do it honestly. The game is a platformer, which is cute and sweet, pretty well suitable for kids. But on the other hand its controls (especially on keyboard) feel a bit clumsy, as if the game was a sloppy port from console or mobile device. No, it's not a bad game, but there are simply many alternatives which don't share its flaws and are better executed. If you manage to buy it on discount, it's not a bad purchase for somebody who's into platformers. But otherwise you can easily skip it and choose a different platformer instead.
