The good: The unqiue *clay* ghraphics.
The bad: this game is completly unstable.
Even worse than Platypus 2. Get Platypus instead.

The Good
Clay models and basic animation is nice.
Sound seemed reasonable.
I played with Easy difficulty and found it was the closest match between issues with controls and game play performance.

The Bad
Controls are a little quirkly/jittery for my liking.
Game can't make up it's mind what type it is, as each world type (akin to Super Mario Bros.) has a level of each in order being a 2D scrolling shooter, rocket lander, a 2d platform game before finishing off with another 2D scrolling shooter level with a defeat the boss end scenario.
Application does not stay in it's own little sandbox, taking away mouse performance from the rest of the host Operating System until it is closed.

The Ugly
I gave it a No recommendation as I didn't find the game enjoyable. The game application taking away mouse performance means I have to leave it active for Steam Card acquisition, nor if it was in better shape be able to multitask like I prefer to do with most games (highly recommend Bejewed 3 or Battlepaths, run those in Windowed mode).

TL/DR - Grab it for the cards, only if you can acquire the game cheap or (my recommended value) free.

Dunno where to start on this one but hmm lets give it a shot

Pros)
Reminds me of good clay animation like Klay World and Wallace and Gromit
Steam Cards

Cons)
Only my right ear got to enjoy the sounds.

Conclution
I recomend it because only requires 5 steam cards for badge. And kinda dope.

Я искренне надеялся, что это игра по мотивам Безумного Макса
Никогда ещё так не ошибался

I sincerely hope that this is a game based on MAD MAX: Fury Road
I`ve never been so wrong

The game tried to troll me, as the mouse cursor is not working in Alt+Tab.
While the cards were dropping I was playing Dark Souls, where you need no mouse.

10/10
Would troll the game again.
