Great Game

Awesomely fun game, great to play with friends or alone. Really great addition to the platform genre

  • from Winnipeg, MB

Slow and repetitive with WAY too many loading screens

I really wanted to love this game... but when Zelda proved you can have a huge open world with almost no loading screens... platfomers like this with literally a loading screen every two minutes seem antiquated. It makes no sense at all. The game, although cute, is extremely repetitive and fairly simple. For me, this was a rare Nintendo fail.
