The game developers, Black Pants, helped me get this great game running on my machine when the game stopped working for me. Not only do I recommend this game because of the awesome tools that help you change the landscape to beat the levels, but the game developers are great guys, thanks Johannes!! Keep it up!

The best way to describe Tiny and Big is by scratching my head. I think the game intentionally tries to confuse the player with its odd storyline. Your character is trying to get these pants that have special powers(?!?) back from some antagonist, so you go through all this platforming and these boss fights, with some puzzle elements involved throughout.

I stopped playing for two reasons: I'm no good at platforming (but the respawn locations are more than fair), and I was beyond confused by the story to the point where I just found no motivation to find out what happens. Overall, pretty interesting game.

Nice game, took about 2 hours and a bit to complete. Really nice level design. Not played a platform game in ages. It plays like a platfom sandbox game, not very challenging but entertaining if you have a few hours to spare.

This is NOT an ordinary game. The team that generated it were obviously trying to break out of the straight jacket of current game design, plot, characters, and grapics and have created something that is unique and a very enjoyable experience. One can only wish more game design teams were as innovative and creative.

Tiny & Big is probably one of the most unique games I've ever played.
To basically describe it, it's a Physics-based 3D Platformer... WITH ROCKETS AND LASERS.
Yes, Rockets and Lasers.

The main idea behind T&B is that your ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ brother/cousin/etc. (it's never made exactly clear) has stolen your grandpa's magical underpants that have just the right ammount of abilities to rule the freak'n world, so, as a good brother/cousin/etc. would do, you pack a friend (a radio) with you, and begin to go after him. It's an absurd premise, yes, but it's done justice with the ammount of charm on display here. There are multiple witty lines that had me either laughing or at least giving a smirk rather than feeling a slight overdose of cringe. On top of this, the visual style is excellent! It's cartoony and doesn't have over $1000000 worth of budget put into it, but it still manages to be one of the best looking games I've played in a while... and did I mention this game can easily (with no horrifying framedips, going from my experience) run on lower-end PCs'. That's awesome... just thought I'd point that out. Finally, the soundtrack and secrets. The soundtrack fits very well with the game, and has some very catchy tunes. The levels that fill this game also have some pretty cool secrets in them, like hidden mini-games. This game also has some pretty intelligent, but not too hard, puzzles in it... but, I'll get into that in a bit.

I do have some issues with this game.
You can beat T&B in about 2-3 if you're just rushing through it, though this doesn't bother me. Shorter games are awesome if they can provide you with a solid experience despite the length, and this does just that. My main issue with this game relies with the last 2 stages. NO SPOILERS, I PROMISE... but, compared to the other great levels this game provided me with, they came to me as the weaker points of this game. The second to last level was the longest, but it was also the most irritatating and confusing. The final level had one of the shortest bosses, and was one of the shortest levels in the game, which is astounding, considering you can beat the first level in less than 5 minutes! There are little physics puzzles here and there that ARE smart and manage to be easy at the same time, but the second to last level completley ♥♥♥♥♥ over the fun-ness of those puzzles by making you scream in agitation when a block of wood that you NEEDED to progress falls out of sight, and the only way to get it back is to *hopefully* throw yourself off a cliff and die.
1 minor issue I also had with this game: Bugs. They weren't too common, but they were sure apparent... ESPECIALLY in the second to last level. To describe my experience: at one point, I pushed a door down to use as a platform. I cut one of the things holding it back, die, and then magically spawn at the next checkpoint. This also happened to me near the end, making me shocked when a pre-boss-battle boss battle showed up when I respawned for no good reason.

Laza's Consensus: Despite less-than-stellar final levels and a small ammount of bugs, Tiny & Big manages to suceed with a great soundtrack, great platforming, and charm to back up it's silly, yet intriguing premise

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.

A very cool game where you move and cut objects to get around. It's pretty short, but there's a lot of optional exploration and collecting if you're into that.

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 these unique mechanics 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 stand-out 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
