On the one side Toki Tori is a little cute bird - something between a chick and a penguin. It cannot fly or even jump - just step up a small block and float slowly to ground. You walk through lovely animated enviroments and listen to a sweet soundtrack with the purpose ofcollecting all placed eggs in every level. But don't get tricked by this overwhelming cuteness!
On the other side Toki Tori is an ultra hard puzzle platformer without any mercy. That's for some reason:
1. Some levels have traps where you get stucked in a hole without coming out. Mostly there is the last egg to get.
2. The monsters are quick and touching is highly deadly. Unfortunatelly you have to come them sometimes really near.
3. You have a cruel limit of using special abilities like bridge building, block throwing or teleporting. If your contingent is gone you cannot do anything more and must try again.
4. It seems that for every level exists only one solution. It's hard to get this, make the right decisions from the beginning to the end and follow the right path.
Though there is a rewind function in this game - besides it looks like VHS. But it will help more in dangerous situations than leading you to the solution. In the end you'll feel lucky to get through all these nerve-wracking levels. But I'm just expecting Toki Tori 2.
