Rated 5 / 5 stars

5 stars! The 2D background and the 3D characters, with a simpler color palette went well together...I feel sorry for the guardian.

That's why guardians can't trust anyone. Umbra was a good guardian, he didn't let anyone through, regardless of if they were good or evil.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

well animated with a sort of "Tim Schafer-esque" appeal and a nice 180 at the end.

no wonder she wasn't afraid but you kinda feel sorry for the guardian whose only purpose was to guard the treasure.
