Imaginative and creative use of a Gimmick

AkiMatti | March 21, 2014 | See all AkiMatti's reviews »

This game has a certain gimmick in it, which is the possibility to cut terrain obstacles and then move the slices. The mechanic works very well and the player is left with his/her own imagination as to how to overcome the obstacles with it.

The gimmick is however only part of the game, another part is the humor. The humor reminds me a bit of Psychonauts and MDK, bizarre and childish. Just the way I like it :)

The controls are responsive and work even with a gamepad. I used Logitech F510 successfully. Keyboard + Mouse might work more accurately, though.

It is a nice adventure platformer which will give you a journey you will likely not regret taking.

Insanely Inventive, and Ludicrously Charming

At first, as you meander through a simple tutorial stage that shows you how everything works, T&B seems like a pretty straightforward puzzle-platforming experience. But as soon as the game unleashes you on the world, you realize that you're about to experience something special.

Tiny & Big: Grandpa's Leftover's has a simple concept; use your three tools (a powerful cutting laser, a grappling hook that you use for pulling rather than climbing, and a launcher that fires little rockets that stick to objects and propel them forward when you activate them) to navigate the stages and have yourself a grand old adventure. T&B takes this concept and lets you run free with it, leaving few restrictions save a robust physics engine, and your own creativity to solve the game's puzzles.

The game's surreal sense of humor and gorgeously quirky art design help carry it along as you work through several stages of the game with your trusty tools.

The only true fault of the game is that it's just so short, but at ten dollars (and often less, considering how often it goes on sale), it's well worth dropping your hard-earned handful of dollars on if you enjoy a good puzzle platformer. With any luck, we'll see a sequel some time in the future that really runs wild with the concept introduced here.

Short & Sweet

FlamingDbag | Aug. 20, 2013 | See all FlamingDbag's reviews »

I beat it in one sitting. It wasn't amazing or deep, or even that long to be honest, but it was fun and seriously helped me to mellow when I was stressed out. It's a good game to play and relax to, solving mild puzzles and abusing the cutting tool for laughs and giggles. If you have interest in this game I do suggest you buy it, just be aware it's a short game and there doesn't seem to be much reason to replay it either so I suggest you wait until it goes on sale whenever. Definitely deserves a sequel.

This is great, especially for an indie game

When I first got this, I didn't know what to think - I was presented with a character that could cut rock and attach rockets to it, which is pretty darn cool! It's puzzle based in a way, as you have to use your laser cutter to progress through the level, and use your rockets to move heavier objects. I did however find that the story is very short, about 6 missions I think, that were reasonably long - I think I completed the game in about 5 hours. I was captivated by the graphics - it has the cartoon like feel of borderlands, except it's less anti-aliased and jagged, which is okay, but I like a sharper image. It is genuinely very good.
