A fun game that will have you playing around for hoursBlockAgent | 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 CharmNucularS | 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.

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.

I picked up this wonderfully quirky game a while back and I could not have loved it more.
This game has a hilarious and childish mini script written for it and coupled with the comic stylings really brings it all together.
In this game you can literally slash your way through a level how you like, with quirky gadgets and massive landscapes. The soundtrack is fantastic and you can acquire new tracks as you play on.
The only downside to this game is that it ends and that it ends rather quickly. However, for the price you are in for a treat. It was kind of an experiment by the studio but I would love to see more of this from them.
Imaginative and creative use of a GimmickAkiMatti | 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.
