Summary

A neat game, if somewhat stupid.

The Good

Well, it's a decent platformer, with a fast engine, smooth graphics and gameplay, good controls and a cute action figure. The design is interesting, if not innovative. A solid game which is fun to play, this is an interesting attempt by Virgin.

The Bad

I didn't like the premise - too silly and commercial. The game is so repetitive I never got passed the first level (if there's more than one anyway...) because it bored me, and the sound effects and music could and should have been better.

The Bottom Line

A cute though somewhat annoying game, which is generally fun to play. 'nuff said.
