"Fantastic (and short) platformer where you literally carve your own path, slicing steps, ledges and platforms. Just a joy to play around with."

This game is tons of fun, it accomplishes something not a lot of games do which is giving you a great sense of freedom. It is amazingly fun to play around with the different ways you can slice and dice or rocket your way through a level and has a ton of small little secrets here and there. The story is good simple fun and I will recomment this game to anyone who is missing a good, fun platforming experience.

This game is awesome!
Pretty creative, you can cut whatever you want and with this you need to build bridges or ladders etc.
It also has a funny fact, you are playing as Tiny and you have a wierd radio that says wierd funny things and you set out for a journey in order to take down Big and get your underwear back. Seems like your pants are magical and you become a king if you wear them on your head or something...
Nice journey if I can say, collect the boring stones and cut whatever you like so Big will be afraid.

This game has to be one of the most fun adventure platformers I've tried. It is right up there with psychonauts, except it's got more focus on puzzle solving.

You can expect to die a lot on your first time through. Some people will like this aspect, others won't. However, it is very typical of platformers. Fortunately they don't have the archaic lives cap that some games still have. This the constant dieing less of a problem, and more of a challenge.

One of the best aspects of the game is that it is designed in such a way that there is often more than one way to do things, even though there is usually at least one fairly obvious way.

Another thing many players will love is the sheer level of collectables and hidden places in the game. You may get through the game quite qickly on your first run, but it will take a long time to find everything.

There is a trial mode for perfectionists where you can perfect the level in various ways: speed, rockets used, cuts used, collectables gotten. This adds significant replay value, and is something more games need. I find it unfortunate that you have to finish the game to unlock time trial mode. This is probably the only thing I don't like about the feature.

For Linux users, the Linux port works excellent, and is a full port of the engine, not a simple wrapper. It laregely uses Open Source libraries, which many Linux users will find as a plus.

A fun little puzzle game has a fair amount of hidden things to ot. The soundtrack is really awesome and if you have the chance, I'd recommend getting both the game and OST.

I never installed it, but today i did, and i dont regret it. The game is fun from start to finish. I beat it in a few hours and i loved all of it. I had alot of fun, and it made the depression go away even for a little while. Fun controls, no bull crap puzzles, good story, enjoyable characters. I loved it.

A fun little physics-based puzzle game with a charming visual style and a rather... interesting storyline. Being based around defeating someone wearing a pair of men's breifs, after all. A bit of a short story for $10, but becuase I got it on sale for $0.99 I have no reason to complain. Even if you did pay full price for it, there are so many little secrets you could spend your time trying to find; it would still be worth it.

Very cool and unusual graphics style with a super wacky plot. It is a bit short but worth a play through and has plenty of easter eggs throughout the game and could present a fair bit of a challenge to some people while not driving them nuts. I really enjoyed it.

Short easy game. Nothing very particular about it. Not worth the 10$ price tag. Finished in 2 hours with little effort. Buy when the price goes down.

Realistic environment manipulation under unrealistic limitations pulls you down to death every time when you are against an enemy just bringing some rocks directly above your head. Yes, you can't cut them in that angle and just get smashed. Or get busy falling off trying to avoid them.

Really fun and cute game! While the writing isn't as good as say Portal 2, the storyline was thoroughly enjoyable. I can see coming back and playing it again after a year or so for fun again, but it is a fairly quick play.

A game that simply oozes charm, that contains some of the best gameplay I've seen in recent memory. You can slice, drag or attach rockets to almost anything in the gameworld, and the artwork is fantastic. Highly recommended.

What a gem. Bought it on sale for a steal at 3 bucks. After beating the game I would have paid the 10 dollars for it. my only complaint is that is was about 2 to 4 hours but i enoyed every second. Definitly a top notch indie title.
