The game is set in a land where common physics apply, but everything else looks different. You are Tiny, a nerdy inventor with a ray cutter, a gripping-device, a ton of rockets, and a fine attitude towards the world. But now your arch-nemesis Big stole the only thing your beloved grandpa left you: a nice pair of white, finely ribbed underpants! And he‘s surely up to no good. Why else would he take them to that forsaken desert? No one ever goes there, it’s called “that forsaken desert” for a reason. Sure, no one remembers why. But still--up to no good!
Anyway, now it’s up to you to save the worl--erm. Save the underpants! So fire up that homemade raygun (You invented it!) and take your annoying jibber-jabbering backpack to accompany you. The taxi to the desert is waiting! Meet mysterious creatures, a taxi robot, and your arch enemy: Big!
Immerse yourself in this comic-styled jump-and-slice indie platformer that gives you the unique ability to shape the whole world at your will. So run, jump, drag, push, and laser your way through ancient scenery and get back those undergarments before Big accomplishes something that’s No Good!

The art style and the gameplay are really great, but there are only six levels. And one is a kind of tutorial while another is a boss fight so there are actually four real levels. There are quite long though but I still finished the game in less than three hours even if I died a lot.
The replay value seems good, especially if you like explore and find all the hidden things in theread more levels. There are little bugs but they aren't game breaking so the only reason I don't give the game five star is its shortness.

It looks good, it has an interesting play style. But it also has its share of bugs (see-through textures, being able to stand in the air at places) and other quirks (jumping mechanic, the cursor for targeting the laser, although you do get somewhat used to that after a while) that pulls the rating down a bit.

It's been a long time since I've seen such a great implemented platformer. The charm of this game is in its presentation, humor, and in the design choices which are prevalent through the entire game. It's a joy to experience this game, and every fan of indie games, especially games like Psychonauts, should support the effort put into this project.
Major Thumbs Up!
