Very fun, little, casual puzzle game. The art style is playful and vibrant with a wonderful attention to detail, especially in the backgrounds. The animations were smooth and fun to watch, as a feature the game also allows the player to skip the cutscenes or even watch the cutscenes again in the level viewer. The story was surprisingly well done as well. Normally, I would not expect a story in a puzzle game like this, however there was a story, and it was quite easy to follow. Though the adventures were wacky and didn't make any logical sense, it fit the overall tone of the game perfectly. I must also applaud the creators of the game for adding little references from other media and of course geek culture. The soundtrack of this game was great, however it got very repetitive as the game progressed, for my ears got tired of hearing the same banjo tune strummed over and over again. The best way to remedy this problems is to take a break once in a while to let your ears rest. However this little problem did not and will not dull the rest of the gaming experience in anyway.
The game was easy to pickup and play, however don't get me wrong, some of the puzzles will take a little bit of thinking to figure it out, especially if you are a completionist. Bonus content allows for some replayability which adds to the value of the game itself and in no ways detracts from the main game itself. The system of unlocking bonus content is well done, as even an intermediate skilled player will be able to "buy" the content (The main game will provide more than enough "happy" points to unlock them). The achievements brings nothing new to the table, but it fairly awards those who are willing to spend some time in the game.
Overall this is a solid game with little to no faults to describe. It is a must own for people who like puzzle games, and for people who don't, this is a good game to pick up, because of its ease of play. The game's content to value ratio is good, however don't expect to sink hundreds of hours into this game. 9/10
