Childish, innocent puppy love. This one is for the younger ones, and will most probably bore the older audience.
Gameplay revolves around reuniting the two characters, with the playable character being the start point and the target character being the end point. Levels start with the scenario paused, and users are to manipulate objects scattered across the landscape so as to make a pathway for the target character to fall along. After all this is set up, the play button is pressed and the playable character descends upon free-fall. The moved objects will then serve as directional guidance with regards to the path traveled by the character, who will hopefully fall and slide his way towards the end point.
While that sounds fairly simple, it hardly is. Do not expect to only have to move a few large and obvious objects. In later stages, it is the smaller and inconspicuous ones that really count. Right down to perfect placement, where each object is shifted to will also greatly affect the path of the character no mater how insignificant it may seem. Now add the 3-star system commonly found in such casual titles where players have to obtain all 3 stars laid out across the playing field for maximum points and the game difficulty is stepped up yet another notch.
Slow paced music in the background, the game encourages children to take their time and plan their moves. Great to stimulate creativity in the younger ones, this is one of the best games you can let them get hooked onto. Through this gaming experience they will understand and learn about thinking (literally) out of the box, and to expand upon unorthodox ideas.
This dollar will definitely be well-spent. Buy it.
