It's a nice game, but it's also waaaay too short.

The setting is nice featuring a new and unique way to tell the story ... but the story ... well ... if you know what to do it lasts for maybe a fifteen minutes ... and that's if you're playing it slow ...

When clicking through you can easily finish this in three minutes!

Get only on a laaaaaarge discount to enjoy the unique feel, but don't expect to get much game out of it.

And with laaaarge discount I mean don't pay more than 0.10 cent or so ...

There are free flash games featuring longer lasting playability. If I hadn't got this out of a bundle I would feel ripped off.

Too short to absolutely love. Looks more like a teaser than a game. Good as a present though :)
P.S. Come on guys, make this cardboard world alive!

Puzzles are obscure and not very well communicated. Very short. Ends with a "to be continued" but there hasn't been an update since.

I wasn't sure whether or not to recommend this game. In the end, I decided to recommend it. Why? Because even though it was extemely short, it was heaps of fun and quite challenging.

Pros:
- Visually pleasing - very nice art which looks like a lot of effort has been put into it.
- Unique puzzles.
- Pleasant music.
- Interesting and fun gameplay.

Cons
- Extemely short - felt more like a demo than an actual game.
- Overpriced - very expensive for what you get. Get it while it's on sale.

If you like point and click puzzle adventure games, I would recommend that you buy this. However, it is not worth it at full price, so I would say wait for it to go on sale. :)

This game has about seven puzzles, half of which are pretty easy. The other puzzles aren't hard, just annoying. Interesting visuals, but the game has a very low resolution so it's just a small box in the middle of my screen. It's also made in Flash. Took me 45 minutes to beat it. Definitely not worth the price.
