Thanks to chris-marks for a complete and awesome walkthrough, go check it out if you have problems with any level:
http://chris-marks.newgro unds.com/news/post/444611

A horrid earthquake has occurred at a distant planetoid called Theia. The impact was so strong that it created a giant crack, running from the core of the planetoid until its surface. Your race finds out that this catastrophe was caused by a monster who is eating Theia's Core! If he continues, the planet will explode, destroying all of your race. Nonetheless, Voly dares to take the risk of stopping the monster and his evil minions by the cost of his own life.

Your goal is to guide Voly towards the center of Theia. But beware, Voly is way too weak to attack the huge enemies; therefore you should avoid confronting them.

This game isn't perfect, but it's pretty darn good. I played all the way through and had a ton of fun. I have a feeling the developers really enjoyed working on this project.

Aesthetically, it's excellent. The artwork and animations vary in detail and smoothness, but the visuals all look really neat on the whole, and the music and sound effects helped thoroughly immerse me in the game world. (The grunts of those big-handed guys started to really get to me after Voly got smacked by them enough times... but that was part of the fun!) I also like the plot, and enjoyed encountering all the different kinds of enemies, big and small. Everything has a cute, slightly childish feel to it, which I really love.

The perspective from which stages are viewed and the hit areas of the various objects made navigation tricky at first, but I gradually got more comfortable with everything as I played. There were times when I wished things were clearer, but it was also fun to figure out how the environment worked, which was a significant part of the game's difficulty for me.

Speaking of difficulty, this gets really hard! I was about ready to pull my hair out over the challenges presented by some of the later stages. But the combination of solving the puzzles and performing the tricky maneuvers this game requires is a joy to experience... a borderline-masochistic joy, perhaps, but a joy nonetheless. In any case, I'm glad I stuck it out to the end and got to see everything the game has to offer.

There are some slightly irritating bugs - scores can drop below zero, but a negative sign is never displayed (I thought the scoring system was broken until I realized this); Voly once got stuck in place near the edge of an obstacle, forcing me to restart the stage I was playing - but for the most part, the game plays beautifully.

It would be great if those bugs were fixed, but they aren't game-compromising, and don't change the fact that this game exhibits a lot of creativity and is really fun. I can definitely see myself playing it again and trying to finish with fewer deaths and a higher score.

Thanks for a great game!

Hard to get anywhere,but fun

It is hard to give any criticism that almost everyone else has pointed out. Stuck on ten, and chris-marks seems to no longer be a part of Newgrounds, so the walkthrough is unavailable.

Adorable!

Adorable game. Very cute character. I love the underground ability. Although I'm already stuck on Level 3- how DO I get past the rocks, on solid ground? I'm Favoriting it so I can easily come back to try again.---I'll be looking for more of your works. Great job.

Decent game

I must say your game has very good graphics and sounds.
However, as said before the controls act a bit weird sometimes.
I better get bad and good stuff apart, so:
+The game was beatable, very hard at the end tough.
+Sounds/music
+fluid graphics

-some of the obstacles are not clear to see, or better said you barely can make out where your char stops, like said before, you can get stuck at the far edge of a crystal -> which leads to annoying deaths. it's even worse when you need to speed around a corner.
-last boss battle: it was hell. really...hell. i got it because i tried like 50+ times and just got through the quicktimeevents by knowing what i need to do.
The time to react was ridiculously short.
-stones n' eyes: on the last level before the endboss you need to place some stones in front of the eyes. however the horizontal placing was a bit tricky because you barely can see where to place the stone. it was like the graphics were 2D.

All in all a quite good game. you got good ideas with the planet, the plot etc.
I'll give out 7 stars how about that.

i'm having problems to

i couldn't help to notice the zeros below me so i'm giving my thoughts, i've already play the game before and i didn't have this flash upgrade problem and now i came here to play it again to remember, thats why i'm giving a 9 score.
it´s a shame actually because alot of gamers are giving a 0 score and they don't know the beautiful game they are missing and giving a bad score.

i've played the game in the house of a friend of mine and the game work just fine but he's running on windows xp and now i'm running on windows 7 before i wasn't, i don't know if theres any connection or not i'm just trying to give clues to help out, because i say it again the game is beautiful and fun to play, it needs improvements in the gameplay like you could allow him to run, jump, flip rocks, plants or objects (just ideas) and i think that you need to improve the notion of space (dimensions) because sometimes it's hard to know if you are infront or behind of something or not

now to close i just want to ask when will you do Theia 2?

Toonimated responds:

We are very sorry for the inconvenience! There was indeed a bug in the flash version checker, so we just removed it.

Thanks a lot for your feedback! We really appreciate it! There are no plans of a sequel as of now though, but you never know, stay tuned!
