Tiny and Big is an incredibly charming, enjoyable game. The game centres on Tiny, who's trying to recover his grandad's belongings from Big. As Tiny, you must pursue Big through expansive temples with use of your tools. A lazer, a hook, and a rocket. You use these three items to create pathways across gaps and up walls. You do this by cutting blocks and pillars up with the laser and positioning them with the other two tools. It's a platformer where you create your own platforms and solve the level your way.

I got a lot of fun out of this game, 19 hours of it in fact. About 6 of that would've been playing through the story normally. It can be much faster than that, but you'll find yourself messing about with the laser and trying to make the stupidest ways of advancing possible. The rest of my playtime was replaying it for the fun and then collecting all the achievements. So even after completing it I wanted to keep messing around with the fun physics and platforming.

Possibly my favourite thing about this game is creating a platform that just shouldn't scientifically allow me to advance. You'll end up with a platform at an impossible angle and think 'This should not be working,' as you stroll across it, smiling.

The visuals and soundtrack are astounding too. The cartoony art style is really pretty and sound effects are emphasised with comic book-esque splash text that leads to a very charming atmosphere. You unlock the soundtrack through picking up tapes throughout the levels so you're slowly unlocking more music as you progress. All the music is fantastic but if you don't like a particualr song, you can flip through each track on the fly as you play.

The game is good, how do I end a review?

A whimsical platformer that uses laser-cutting mechanics as it's hook to draw you into it's wonderful adventure. Definitely buy it when it's on sale!

This game is very interesting, exciting and entertaining. I also like this crazy story. You can cut and move almost every stone you encounter. I'm loving cutting stones! Try to find your own path and search for different secrets.

Some levels demand the player to arrive at certain places without a well pre-established way. So one need to cut, drag, push stone cubes/pillars/walls/beams etc. You can find alternative ways to beat levels, for example without cutting anything. There are also boss fight stages, where you should evade or cut down the stones thrown at you.

At last I talk about the achievements, 100% completion is not hard. The collection of all flashing stones in episode 4 is quite challenging. Pay attention to the stones on the top of all blue pillars (no guide or video for this achievement). It took me 10 hours in total to get all the achievements.

This strange, beautiful, pants-obsessed platformer is a surprisingly fun, hidden gem of a game.

Tiny & Big sat in my inventory for a long time, one of those titles I bought because it was on sale. The screen shots generally don't do it any justice making it an easily overlooked title; the name doesn't help either.

The graphics, although strange, are a suitable stylistic choice that fit well with the theme. Likewise, the music is unusual but enjoyable. A couple new tracks are hidden in each level, so finding them is a good idea if you want to expand the game's song list.

The most noteworthy design element in the game is the physics engine with the ability to cut pillars, statues, boulders and most other stone items. It feels amazing to push, pull, and hack apart such large objects and dynamically alter the game environment. The simple act of cutting objects at any angle without the use of voxels was something I had never seen before.

I appreciated how the designers encouraged experimentation; most of the trial and error situations encountered aren't that painful. Despite my low tolerance for gaming frustration and rather poor platforming skills this game won me over and I fought through. It's a short game at 3-5 hours, but it has a lot of replay value if you enjoy achievement hunting.

Those whom enjoy the exploration of platformers, will surely love hunting down hidden objects and discovering the various Easter eggs that Tiny & Big has to offer. I enthusiastically recommend this somewhat underrated title to everyone.

What a badass game. Tiny and Big is truly a unique game in the sea of indie games that exists now. I'm super bummed it didn't get the attention it deserved. The art style alone set's it apart. The soundtrack is freaking sweet, got some psychedelic beatles 1960s indie fusion ♥♥♥♥ going on, I like it. It is a short game, but the mechanics/art alone make it worth the purchase. Check it out for sure, awesome game

or go pay for more alpha 8bit roguelike platforming snoorfests

Did you ever start playing a game, which you litterrally expected nothing of and then the game took you on a fun ride that lasted for 3 hours and then was over? And you wonder why they havn't made a second one?!? :D Tiny and Big Grandpa's Leftovers is crazy. The music is crazy (and fun!), the gameplay is crazy (and fun!) the story is VERY crazy (and a lot of fun!), the characters (there are only 2 in the game) are comicly funny and entertaining. The gameplay is sandbox"ish". You can cut, pull and push almost every obstacle in the game. Carve yourself stairs to the top of that tower? Go for it. :) It's unique art style combined with that crazy music even creates a funny atmosphere. The game is packed with secrets and stuff to find. I replayed it twice, just to get most of the achievements (which are hilarious, too). The main character is accompanied by a radio that has the right phrase for every situation. Unfortunatly there are no voices in the game, so you have to read everything. That's kind of hard, while you're running for your life, trying not to get crushed.
The game is not very hard (but no, it is not EASY) and you'll see the credits after 3 hours. Plus achievement time. This game is worth every cent you spend on it. Stop reading! Buy it, play it and write an email to the developers asking for a second one!

Remember when you failed 2nd semester physics class because you should have been paying attention, but instead ended up wasting the lectures away daydreaming about wearing your underwear on your head and becoming a pseudo-Aztec god of the mole people? Remember when you put your underwear on your head and tried to convince your college roommate's mother that you actually were a pseudo-Aztec god of the mole people? And how you spent the next night in prison, where you met Thorn, who gave you that really sweet tat of Maya Angelou fighting a 4-winged serpent on your forehead? That's what this game feels like.

Tiny and Big feels more like a dev studio showing off a fun physics engine than it does a fully fleshed-out game. The platforming is sometimes difficult to figure out, mostly because you have to learn the mechanics of the game as you go along--after the tutorial levels, the hints are few and far between. The "rocket" tool seems to have no reasonable use except to move large objects in unpredictable ways, leading to hilarious results. And most of the game's challenges can be bypassed by using your cutting tool in ways that I do not believe the devs envisioned.

Regardless, if you want to spend some time in a fun physics sandbox, where nearly the entire landscape is destructible, TaBGL is not a bad way to spend your hard-earned prison cigarettes while Thorn sterilizes another safety pin for round two of Angelou.

By the way: GREAT name for a Kendrick Lamar cover band.

Fun game. However, its very short, and somewhat less allowing for creative then you might hope it would allow for. Don't expect hours of fun, expect a few.

Take part in a bizarre odyssey to reclaim your grandfather's psychic underwear. Gameplay consists of puzzles & platforming involving your lazer cutter & remote rockets. The slicing up of the environment is very impressive, the soundtrack is great & the game is filled w/ secrets & rewards for explorers.

I don't even know what i played, but i loved it.

3 Brilliant mechanics.

This will be used to cut down an object and use it to either climb on objects or to simply remove a terrain, either way. Very unique concept.

Used to pull object towards you which could be then used as a bridge or a platform.

A more efficent way of pushing an object forward. Either to create a bridge or to simply move an object. You can also use your hands but is much slower, but more accurate.

Pants = Superpowers.

Solid 3D puzzle/platformer/adventure game. A little bit short but that's nothing wrong with it because Tiny and Big leaves you with satisfaction after completing main story. You won't get bored throught the play. Also, artstyle is very nice. It's worth giving a try.

This is an utterly brilliant game. The mechanics are fun to mess around wiith. The puzzles are well thought out with multiple solutions. The secrets and easter eggs are plentiful and rewarding. The art style is gorgeous. The music selection is really fun. The writing and tone are really entertaining.
I highly recommend picking this game up, but probably only on sale. The biggest downside is that it's way too short. I want more!

I quite enjoyed this game.One thing I did notice however is that some of the puzzles and most boss battles are pretty repetitive. Still, all in all, I think that it's worth a buy when on sale. Personally, though, I don't think I would buy it at its regular price.
