The game is just as good as it was back in 1997. It may look a bit gory with the strong colors, but its surprising charm and wit are sure to win you over in a just a few minutes, and both visuals and voiceovers soon feels like a natural match for the whimsical story. This is a forgotten classic from a bygone era.

The steam release leaves a lot to be desired though, the only way I got it running at all was by configuring and starting scummvm manually and run the game outside of steam. I also think the price is rather steep for a 19 year old game (Even more so considering that they didnt even bother configure scummvm properly), so in the end I can only recommend technically savvy point-n-click fans to grab it at a sale.

Colorful backgrounds,good animations,cool voice acting , another blast from the past, dont just pass by.

Above that, this game goes through ScummVm and steam config file wont make scaling work, if you got same probs and want to get rid of black borders around the screen, just replace scaler set and turn aspect ratio on to avoid lag.
Or just clear this file -scummvm-tonytough-safe.ini- it can be found in the -ScummVM_Windows- folder in game dir. and put this working sets instead
