This was nostalgia induced buy for me.

However, game itself is very enjoyable. Riddles remind me of Lost Vikings style of game.
There are 5 chapters each with about 1h of play, depending how fast you are solving the challenges.
Levels are not too hard but not too dumb either.
Difficulty should be enough to make it a nice challenge for younger audience and good entertainment for those born in the 80 that remember original series.

As someone who saw the series when I was younger, i was intrigued by this game and I finally picked it up this week. I have played half an hour and done 3 of the 30 levels and I am happy with this purchase, the nostalgia alone makes it worth while.

The gameplay is simple, you control the 3 main characters and you need to move them around in the level activating switches, floor tiles and other things while evading enemies scattered around. you can collect scrolls, keys an 1 special chest per level and if you do this by beating the time allotted, you`ll get 3 stars so for a completionist, it will have replay value.

The cutscenes are just amazing and true to the original series, I would recommend if you have seen it to play in the language you know them from, it will add to the nostalgia, I played the game in French.

Overall, I would rate this game an 8 out of 10 and with he current sale at 50% off, I would suggest you grab it.

Enjoyable game with nice cartoon cutscenes but it's pretty easy. Though the collectibles are quite challenging especially at some late levels. If you are playing in Arabic, there are few noticeable language mistakes. Good game.

From what I've seen, this is an interesting puzzler, but I think the experience of tracking down the show and watching it first would be better than a game of spoilers. I have to say I've been a fan of the original since it first aired in the 80's, so hearing the new voices was a bit jarring. For anyone just jumping into the series, lore is irrelevant, as is knowledge of the original series. It stands well on its own. Still, I can't see anyone that isn't already a fan picking this up. It's a boost of nostalgia, but I wouldn't recommend it as an introduction to the series.
