A lot of fun, despite it's length

Tiny & Big: Grandpa's Leftovers is an entertaining, humorous and graphically appealing game. The premise of the game is based around slicing, pulling and launching terrain in order to solve puzzles and complete rather simplistic platforming segments. The physics in this game are a major selling point for the majority of people who find themselves interested in this game and, thankfully, physics do not fall flat at any point over the course of the game. Most of the stages in Tiny & Big are not linear in any way, featuring multiple ways of solving them. The graphic style of this game is definitely not meant to be particularly life-like, but is cell shaded and incredibly appealing to the eye. Most interactions between the player and the environment are accompanied by an onomatopoeic word being rendered within the level, in full 3D i might add, next to the source of the sound. The only major gripe that I found in the game was the rather unimpressive length of it, featuring only 6 stages, but this is justified given the price of the game. I still wish there was more to experience in this tiny gem. To reinforce my previous points, Tiny & Big: Grandpa's Leftovers is a beautiful and enjoyable game, only hindered by it's length and lack of content.

A Tiny gem with big value

It's really funny and amusing games, very beautifully executed, nice mechanics, cool art-style. Kind of reminds me of psychonauts a bit, if you liked that you'll probably like this one too. I don't know if it's worth the full price, but if you catch it on sale i recommend buying it.

A fun game that will have you playing around for hours

BlockAgent | June 25, 2014 | See all BlockAgent's reviews »

This is one of those rare games that even though it only takes about 2 hours to play through, you spend about 8 or 9 hours doing so because interacting with the environment is so much fun. Cutting, rocketing and grappling pieces of the environment was a ton of fun. Basically anything you see is yours to destroy in any way you see fit.
The game itself is pretty addictive and will have you saying to yourself "just one more level" over and over again if you play it late at night. The game also has a fun and charming art style to it that adds to the enjoyment.

Tiny Game That's Big on Charm

NucularS | June 22, 2014 | See all NucularS's reviews »

Get your explorer hat on and prepare to solve easy puzzles that interact with and shape the world. The game is tiny and can be easily completed in a day – which is a good thing because it never gets boring, but big on charm and quirky humor, with a surprisingly dark theme behind it. In a few words, this is Indiana Jones meets Tomb Raider in a very Adventure Time kind of way. My only regret is the lack of creative puzzles to take advantage of the unique tools at your disposal.

Innovative, fun, awesome and long enough

ficha13 | June 18, 2014 | See all ficha13's reviews »

Tiny and Big is a short and fun game with an interesting gimmick. The game mechanics relies on cutting stuff and making or clearing up the path so you can progress further. It's basically like the system in Metal Gear Solid if you want a comparison. The feel of it is really great and really makes what could have been a boring game, very fun. The art and soundtrack is also awesome, the design and art looks like a darker version of Adventure Time mixed with Aztec structure art. Also there are tutorial moments where you play on what is basically a gameboy and they look awesome. They have the classic green screen look and really good 8-bit music. The soundtrack is also very cool. It's a mix of genres and instruments and will keep reminding you of music from the '60's and '70's. Tiny & Big Grandpa's Leftovers is a really interesting indy game with a very innovative concept that is solidly brought to life, awesome soundtrack and a lot of charm. It might not be all that long, but it is sweet and indeed worth your time.
