Although the world habits dangers of violence and gore,
a young child's task is mostly to play
and to explore.

The job of a mother involves knowing when to hold your child back from the dangers of the world, and making sure the child can handle himself when he becomes too old for you to keep him.

+ Use the mouse to control the mother.
+ You can keep your tiny child near your home protecting him from danger.
+ Letting your child explore alone allows him to gain experience and eventually be able to handle himself.

Good but...

Yeah i liked it, like heaps but i thought it was way too hard to keep your kid inside the circle, and i really wanted to see the kid grow up and kick some monster ass but after 3-4 tries it just kinda got boring, and yeah it might be that i just suck but still.

you're 4 now. go kill that bear.

you should be able to at least call your son. mom can get "stuck" in the circle and difficult to maneuver her around the edges. the son should run away from monsters he cannot fight, like when taking damage from a bear, do not walk into the bear. also for me, the game glitched and restarted out of nowhere and repeated restarting.

i like how you cannot control the son , it mimics real life. however the son is stupid. I also like the simple artwork, variety of monsters and music. they work well.

it's more luck than skill or strategy

it would be nice if things changed places randomly
you don't even have to bother finding a sword twice a second time

I say the same as in the other reviews, it needs
more interaction with the game and
a better explained story (where does a child comes from in the middle of a forest if there's only the mother there?? O_o)

I liked the idea of you controlling a ghost or something like that

5/10, +1 because a sequel would be cool (the same as one guy on another review)

Good concept

It's a good concept and good game, but it would be so much easier to keep track of the boy if i could move around with wasd or arrow keys and if I could move through the house like he could, he just runs off and gets killed.

it's ok, but...

My stupid kid keeps running out of view of the screen and getting killed. Reading through other rewiews, I especially like the idea of being able to call the moronic kid back. I do like the idea of the game, and i do find it interesting
