Eccentric, Amusing, but a tad bit Short.
This game is quite eccentric, that's for sure. The game have an oddball cutesy feel to it that leads to what most call a 'childish' style that I actually find appealing in this situation.
In fact, this seems like the perfect remedy for a 8 year old who's eaten far too much sugar. (or any with spare time on their hands.)
Though I must admit, seeing the face on the icon and then playing the game confused me- the icon mislead me to think this was 'another type of game'.
Graphic-wise, the game is polished though not very clean. I feel much more could have been done with the animation of the game to make it much more of a visual feast for a cute connesuer than as is. Though the way I word this may be misleading; The game's artwork is infact more polished than many other games I've seen availible for free.
The sound was nice, and made me smile a bit as I went along. The 'turbo' music amused me in a way hard to describe... similar to watching someone sketch an animal on a sheet of paper, then change the subject to another creature while refining it.
I also found a lot of the sounds from the Mario games a interesting in use here. They were change a small amount from the SNES/NES samples, but they're still recignizable. And that recignizability isn't working against you.
You made me smile, and almost made me feel like chuckling a bit. It's a fun exprenece I've had here.
My biggest grip must be that it's too short. The 3 levels (not counting the bonus levels) didn't take me long at all to complete. 15 minutes at the most.
