Falls short

I can tell you put a lot of effort into this, but the sum total of all the parts just fails to deliver. I didn't find the platforming engaging, and I had a hard time finding myself caring about whatever plot there was supposed to be.

The animation was spotty, making some parts well drawn while others failed to wow me. The character I controlled for instance was unengaging, and ran like a weirdo. It's difficult as there are some obviously flawed parts that detract from the rest of the decent work around it. For instance when the main character goes over the cliff in the boat, the boat and scenery itself is rather well done, but the character's outstretched arm looks so abysmal it's all I could look at.

Tim the pirate's voice acting was irritating as well, but that's not a huge issue.

I could only stomach playing to the second section where the robots appeared, I was tired of dying from not knowing which parts of the background were platformable.

The graphics and the design is fine, the artist has to learn a bit more to be a professional cause there are little flaws but it's nice, th only problems is that the anatomy and the moves are not always that detailed and professional, and sometimes it's hard to recognise what is a background element and what is a platform, but over all it's good, it builds up agreat atmosphere. The music is fitting, great choice. The story is interesting however the presentaiton is a but rushing, sometimes I wasn't able to finish reading, so this needs some improvement but it's fine. Controls are fine, Sound effencts could have been ballanced and I would have suggested to ask some help from voice actors cause the voices are silent, unbalanced, and not acted out that well. Too bad these little things are getting bits away from the experience, so I give a 7. Way to go.
