”Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you?” -Master Yoda
Tiny and Big: Grandpa’s Leftovers is a relatively short Indie title that follows the story of an individual-with a murmuring voice similar to that of Tom Kenny-named Tiny as he embarks on a journey to seek the only heirloom his late grandfather bestowed upon him: a pair of all-powerful underpants that the main antagonist, Big, obtains. I know how this sounds, and you have every reason to be skeptical because of this description. However, the relentless rivalry between Tiny and Big’s primary protagonist and antagonist-aptly named Tiny and Big-is a very amusing struggle. Tiny is equipped with a radio that seemingly has a mind of its own, as well as a set of three gadgets-rocket attachments, a cutting tool, and a hooked rope- that aide in manipulating the environment.

Here are just a few reasons to give Tiny and Big: Grandpa’s Leftovers a chance:

Gameplay - This title is a physics-heavy game that utilizes the three previously stated tools-each obtained progressively through the game’s story- to allow the environment to be altered, and to, subsequently, allow for progression. Though not all of it is, a large part of the environment is destructible, allowing the player to create varying ways in which to solve puzzles and proceed to the next portion of the game. In fact, so much of this game is able to be manipulated that it is highly possible to discover multiple solutions to a single problem, which adds to the replayability of this relatively short title. The control scheme for this title is quite simple, with the standard W, A, S, and D movement layout providing movement, the Space Bar acting as Tiny’s jump button, and all three of the gadgets being accessible by utilizing the mouse; moving the mouse aims the reticle, LMB activates the cutting tool, MMB allows rockets to be placed on objects-with another click of MMB, once attached, to send the mass flying within the rocket’s trajectory-, and RMB connects the grappling hook to a target. The cutting tool takes a bit of getting used to, but is extremely fun to utilize after a short time of learning.

Humorous Dialogue - Both Tiny and Big share not only a physical rivalry but a verbal one. Speech is erected through text bubbles and is acted out through voices that are jabbering gibberish, but with tones unique to each character. Even Tiny’s radio lends notable dialogue to situations while lending a hand with hints and sounding like someone is constantly changing the station. Combined with its cell-shaded graphics, this game’s approach to conversation is both minimalistic and highly enjoyable.

Collectables and Secrets - You can definitely see the developers’ sense of humor within Tiny and Big’s collectibles system. The most prominent pickups in the game are known as Boring Stones, and pretty much describe how, in general, objects such as these are tossed into games as extra content to add to the replayability; it is quite a silly satire. The developers also have self-inserts hidden within the game which prompt Steam Achievements. There are other secrets such as hidden game cabinets that take the player to a variation of Tiny and Big that is reminiscent of a retro video game’s color palette but I will allow you to figure out what and where they are throughout the landscape.

TL:DR - I must admit that I was skeptical about purchasing this title due to its completion time, but the overall feel of the game entranced me into reviewing levels I had already cleared just to retain the same sense of prior enjoyment, just to experience this game’s overworld, conversations, secrets, and themes. Admittedly, Tiny and Big: Grandpa’s Leftovers is one of my favorite physics-based adventures, and I have been secretly awaiting a sequel though I know this aspiration is highly unlikely at the given moment. Thanks for reading.

Get the pants.

That's what the game is about. The title makes it sound like the game is about leftover food, but it's actually about a pair of underwear the player character's, Tiny, grandfather once owned. You see, this pair of underwear is magical, much like Mormon underwear.

I will say though, this was one of the most interesting platformers I've played in a while, mainly because of the amazing physics and cutting edge laser cutting that was wildly accurate when cutting apart statues, rocks, pillars, etc. The devs did a thorough job of making sure the game has its own art style without trying to imitate platformers of the 90's or the early 2000's. The only difference between this platformer and others is there's no hub world. The game is in constant adventure, through 6 different stages of varying atmosphere, difficulty and length.

The plot is that at the beginning of the game, Tiny gets in a car crash with his radio robot that's trying to guide him, presumably to these pyramids that are seen throughout the game. Well, this other fellow, Big, steals the underwear from the car crash and gains the powers, throwing big rocks and levitaion and what not. Anyway, radio robot helps you along the way while using your tools to fight Big throughout 5 of the 6 stages.

Pretty great game overall though, might have benefited from a full soundtrack of orchestra, platformer music, instead of jams and beats.

8.7/10

Great soundtrack too
This game deserves a sequel so bad ;-;

Remember, playing games enhances your real life skills. If you have ever wondered if you would help a little guy that had his grandfathers underpants stolen by a bully, well... I don't have to wonder anymore. I know. As a matter of fact I would scale a pyramid and then enter it just to find those underpants for the little guy.
Seriously though this was a great game. The soundtrack was great and as a physics based puzzle game it was very well done. There is multiple paths you can take limited by your imagination and the amount of cuts you want to make. There are also hidden locations on many of the missions to find gaming machines and play little mini games and get new mix tapes for you to listen to as you play.
The only con that I have for this is that it was so short. It took me 2.7 hours to complete and that was with messing around a lot.
It is a lot of fun though and I would reccomend that you check it out if you enjoy puzzle games.
