A fun platformer that offers five to six hours of unique platforming, and a pace that rarely slows

Like the main character, I'm of two minds about it. Thinking back on it there were pieces I really enjoyed. But it was also the kind of game I couldn't play for more than a half hour at a time. Even when I was enjoying it, I could feel it overstaying its welcome. It's decent in short bursts, but marathoning it would just expose its warts even further.

When the puzzles and chase sequences are pulled off smoothly, they feel incredibly rewarding.
