Few words about the game:
Exciting and lovely game about exploring new, unknown world full of beautiful and thrilling views. All you have is grappling hook and quest to find your lost uncle. At first I wasn't sure about this game because lets face it, what game, with this kind of descripiton might offer us? Apparently ALOT more than you think as on me, it left a huge impression. One of the best, prettiest adventure games around, 100% worth it.
+ World is full of colorful and magnificent graphics, what makes it exceptionally atmospheric
+ Charming characters models and nice concept of undiscovered civilization
+ Easy to master controls, both on controller or mouse & keyboard
+ Amazing storyline
+ Amusing voice acting, sounds and music
+ Astonishing design of levels
+ Puzzles are not really demanding what makes the game convenient to play even for our younger part of community (it's also violent-free!)
- Could be a little longer, took me approximately 2 hours to finish it once. Also replay value is bit low, only for time trials
- Little bit expensive as for that ammount of content, but hey, that's what discounts are for! (~3.5 euro on discount)
- Ending of game leaves the feeling of being incomplete somehow but I guess alot people will like it, as it leaves place for "thinking" about what might happen next
