This game is a very short and sweet platformer with an emphasis on collecting all the little critters while running through each map in as little time as possible. The music's catchy and really slick, the art and spritework is topnotch and cute, and the game is very much playable and charming. The game also sports a co-op mode where you can get a friend locally to play the game with you. Plus the game has bonus extras for collecting allt he critters and meeting goals set by the game itself.

The only real big downsides to this game is that it is VERY short and often jsut a wee bit buggy with climbing walls and such, often leading to lost time or clipping. However it's a rare occurance and doesn't take too much away from what is a short and very cute game. It definitely comes recommended!

A decent platformer where the twist is that every time you complete a level you have to run it backwards within a minute and thirty seconds. It is an alright game but certainly not a memorable one to say the least.

An okay, short platformer. A bit on the short side.

Because Tobe's Horizontal Adventure would be politically incorrect.
