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.

There is a question that is posed to every man in his life. One question that he must endeavor to answer to his own satisfaction and to hell with the naysayers. One choice between confining support or uncertain freedom that will ever after determine the fate of his junk: boxers or briefs? Tiny and Big: Grandpa's Leftovers would emphatically tell you that tighty whiteys are worth fighting for, yet everything about it feels loose, free, and spacious.

Why on Earth are you talking about underwear to describe a 3D platformer/physics puzzler, reviewer? Because in T+B, you play as the titular Tiny, a young man on a quest to recover his grandfather's hand-me-down underpants that have been stolen by an unscrupulous bandito. That's one of those ideas I can't possibly make more ridiculous than the game presents it. And as a framing device, it works. I've played more than a few puzzle games that have forgotten that you need to give your game a definitive character to make it stand out from the piles and piles of mental exercises that boil down to merely an expensive Sudoku. The visual style looks like something Pendleton Ward might come up with if you limited his palette to muted blues and oranges and does a good job of communicating the game's overall character in a sort of graphic novel way. The soundtrack to the game is also special enough to note. It takes the form of cassette tapes that you collect and listen to on your radio and, in addition to providing more reason to explore, covers a wide range of engaging jams from latin beats to funk to rock n' roll.

That's all well and good, but if I'm going to put myself into Grandpa's Leftovers, I'd better get some play and the experience had better feel good! Relax, reader. Thanks to Tiny and Big you'll feel great grabbing your stones and watching them swing free and easy and that's nothing to say about whipping out your rocket and blasting away a huge load. Yes, in Tiny and Big you will use your mining laser to cut up your environment and a winch and rocket to move the pieces you cut into place. What did you think I was talking about? Anyway, the game strikes a nice balance between levels that are more freeform and open, like a sumptuous pair of boxers, and more puzzle-focused linear affairs that are tight and clean, like the familiar TWs. This lets you get the most out of this unique engine as you move between trying to literally carve your own path to your objectives and examining your environment to find just the right object to cut or pull so everything falls into place.

If there's one fault with Tiny and Big, it's that it feels a bit short: five levels and a boss fight. This might be a bit of a dividing point for some players. If you just want to cruise to the end of the game in the most efficient way possible, you'll probably be done in a couple hours. But if you enjoy hunting down tricky secrets and trying to make alternate routes, T + B will occupy you for quite some time. If there are two faults, it's that Grandpa's Leftovers contain a few bugs, which, as you can imagine, can make your experience a bit uncomfortable. None of them are explosively bad, but when you combine them with inevitable physics screw-ups, you'll find yourself losing a little hard-earned progress hunting for the tough secrets or flailing angrily because you've just lost your no-death run of a level. As I've implied, you won't have a lot of issue with them unless you're going for the optional challenges that add a lot of meat to the game.

You can get Grandpa's Leftovers for less than the cost of a fresh bag of undies when it goes on sale and I definitely recommend you do. It's a unique game that delivers on all those promises of "fully destructible environments" that almost always prove to be a disappointment. Most importantly, it's a fun game; fun in the vain of things like Psychonauts. And that's why you should definitely slip into Grandpa's Leftovers.

This game certified by inspector no. 28

Tiny and Big is a 3D platformer that allows you to alter the environment by cutting, moving and destroying other platforms or obstacles. By allowing you to alter the environment the game gives you a lot more freedom than in other typical platformer type of games. The game is unfortunately pretty short (~5-6 hours), however it is worth playing as it is deviates from other platformers.

I expected Tiny and Big to be a good game, I didn't expect it to be a great game.

Pros
-The controls are simple and intuitive & take little time to master.
-The graphics are quirky & have a cool "handdrawn" stylized astetic, but are also technicaly sound & very pleasing to the eye.
-The dribdrag voices with text bubbles work well, I prefer this approach over fully voiced games.
-Runs beautifuly on Linux with Intel HD 4600 graphics!!!
-A 3D physics based platformer, we need more of these.

Cons
-I payed too little for this game, it is worth much more. (Purchased on sale)

I'm just a short distance into the game at this point, so I may update this later, but so far it's looking great & it has my full recomendation.

Great game!
I would compare this game with The Ball, because mostly you use the environment to progress through the storyline. However it still involves some quick reaction skills. This is game is a piece of art because it has silly drawings and a multiform soundtrack.
The only thing is that you can sometimes get frustrated because of the sensitivity of character's movement.

Are you the person that puts up a fight every Thanksgiving in order to carve the turkey? This might be the game for you. The gameplay mechanic is the real star here. Unfortunately the carving/cutting/pulling mechanic outshines the rest of the game itself, but that doesn't detract much from the overall fun. There's no single solution to problem solving here which is refreshing and it leads to a lot of out the box thinking. There's also a ton of hidden things to find. Still, there's nothing more fun than turning a boulder into a Jenga tower and pulling it apart.

If you hate rocks in real life, your dreams have come true.
Introducing the greatest rock slicing simulator, not only can you slice them but also pull them, push them and teabag them(ok the last one is not possible).
GET THIS GAME, IT'S WORTH IT

I can't remember the last time I had so much fun inadvertently killing my character in a game. This is a fairly short game with a very unique look and a fairly unique concept. You have a laser you can use to cut through stone, a grappling hook to drag stone around, and a rocket that you can use to launch anything it attaches to. And then you have physics. And that's pretty much it; get to the end of each section using your tools and physics. It's hilarious how easy it is to get things wrong and get yourself stuck, or smash yourself under a pillar, or miss a jump and fall to your death. Way more fun than I ever would have guessed. The game design and graphic style is very unique, and the music is varied and interesting too. There's only 5 real levels and a final boss level (that was kind of annoying), for a game I played for 2-3 hours total, but I could easily go back and try the levels again to go faster, or make fewer cuts, or get all the collectibles. This is the epitome of indie games, unique concept, unique look, and a world that you'll never get from a AAA developer. Definitely worth a look if you like quirky experiences.

It's a good game and I wish I could see more adventures of Tiny and Big.
The world is marvelous. Pretty simple, but gives off a really soothing feeling.
The puzzles are pretty easy, but fun. And is always fun to experiment with the tools and the environment.
The characters are fun, and I kinda grew fond of them =P
Oh, and the musics it's pretty awesome too =D
Picked it up during a sale, and was totally worth. Recommend.

Cute game, really good music, not very long (unless you want to 100%). Cutting stuff is really fun and the world is weird and interesting. Game tends to crash though, there were a few segments I had to do over due to an untimely crash after a death. Changing computers didn't alleviate this for me. Fortunately the game is pretty generous with checkpoints, but the crashes were still annoying.

The game is AWESOME! But if you are acrophobic, like I am, there goes a warning: the last levels of the game are definitely challenging and distressing for those with fear of heights, to the point were it was terrifying but I just couldn't stop, because it was so good! The aesthetics and the powerfully simple story make the perfect match to connect some amazing gameplay that leaves to you how you're gonna solve the puzzles around you, and you will never solve them the same exact way twice! Strongly recommend it!

A very good platformer/puzzle. I got it on sale for $1 but I think for it's length even though it is good. $10 is a bit much to ask for it. So I recommend this game, but you're better of getting it when it's on sale.

It's decent, around 4-5 hours from start to finish (at least storywise).

One of those ones that's worth it when it's on sale, i think i got it when it was on a 90% off sale and it was definately worth the 70p i paid for it.

Music is good. I will admit that the graphics makes my eyes and head go funny. I think it's more the textures they've used (very strippy).

Fun story though, definately a game to get on sale.

I have had this game in my library for more than a year and I've just discovered it.
I opened the game and after I finished the tutorial, I thought "Hmm this game sould be good..." and it is!
You are the tiny guy, "Tiny" and there's the bad guy, "Big". Big stole your Grandpa's pants, so you have to get them back. Simple right? Well, not quite. Big got a super power from the pants and he wants to destroy the world...

Pros:
-Very unique gameplay, I liked the laser mechanic a lot!
-Simple graphics which fit the game's atmosphere.
-Not bad soundtrack.
-Secret places (I felt like a god, when I found some of these... :DD)

Cons:
-There's some parts in the game that has a cutscene before it. These cutscenes cannot be skipped... I watched one half minute long cutsene at least 10 times because there's a very hard boss fight after it.
-Sometimes can be very hard, but overall, this game is too easy in my opinion.
-You can collect "Boring Stones" in the game and I found a place where it's almost impossible to get them... You have to be very lucky to get some of these. So if you want to get 100% of the achevements, then prepare for these little ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s...

Overall:
I enjoyed the game, it was really unique and sometimes funny. I'm glad I found this in my library 'cause I really liked it.
I recommend it to people who love unique indie games.
