One of the most stunning things about this game is the atmosphere you get into. This other world is absolutely beautiful, and has its own character. The graphics are detailed and together with the sountrack they create such a nice place to be.To me personally, it reminded that special world from Coca-Cola comersial.

So it is a long story for The Tiny Bang Story but to make it short: Easy to install. Hard to figure out how to play. Great game with some very challenging puzzles. Extremely disappointing end.

The Tiny Bang Story is a joy to play from start to finish, with a gorgeous atmosphere, stunning backdrops and lots of clever puzzles. Make sure you pick up the demo for either Windows or Mac, and watch out for the iPad and Android versions coming soon!

Sammanfattningsvis tror jag The Tiny Bang Story kommer att glädja alla som gillar peka och klicka-spel och som tilltalas av sagoboksestetiken. Jag tror det är ett spel som gör sig extra bra nu på sommaren med sina ljusa färger och luftiga musik. Det är inte fasligt långt, drygt fem timmar om man inte stressar, men känslan sitter i desto längre.

Aunque corto y no demasiado difícil en realidad, The Tiny Bang Story es un gran representante de un género que no se prodiga mucho. Además, el estudio independiente que lo firma lo ha lanzado simultáneamente en Windows y en Mac, aunque en la tienda digital de Steam solo está disponible en la primera versión. No así en otras tiendas, aunque la popularidad de Steam es arrolladora y la ausencia de la versión Mac en la misma se antoja algo extraña.
I am generally not a fan of hidden object games but The Tiny Bang Story managed to win me over with its beautiful graphics, relaxing soundtrack and gentle gameplay. It may only last between 4-5 hours, but those hours are seldom frustrating, the object-finding and puzzle-solving proving surprisingly fun and addictive at times. Those who hate hidden-object games probably won’t be won over, but The Tiny Bang Story still remains one of the most relaxing and charming indie games of 2011 despite its flaws.

Gamers maken zich op voor het visueel geweld van de brute A-titels die eraan komen. Maar ondertussen kwam er op Steam een eigenzinnig stukje kunst uit, dat visueel stiekem veel mooier in elkaar zit. The Tiny Bang Story is een razend charmante indiegame, die helaas in puzzelvariatie wat blijft hangen, maar je meeneemt naar een vredige fantasiewereld waar je helemaal zen van wordt.

Avec peu d'objets cachés, quelques énigmes de logiques et une réalisation enchanteresse, The Tiny Bang Story est une véritable bouffée d'air frais pour les amateurs d'aventure zen et tranquille. Colibri Games signe là un très joli titre qui captivera sans peine les joueurs à la recherche d'un peu d'évasion.

In definitiva un titolo poetico ma, così come il mondo di gioco che crea, forse troppo fragile nelle dinamiche per orbitare con tranquillità nel mondo delle avventure grafiche.

Overall, this game is a great for a first time developer, however there was only about 3 hours of gameplay and not much replay value. Beating the game allows you to replay the puzzles in the game, but the puzzles seem pointless when there is no reward for completing them. If their next title has a little more content, Colibri has some real potential. Pick up TBS if your got a few bucks to spare.

It's a rather unique experience. Not in terms of gameplay mechanics, but the graphical artistry and the way the puzzles play off this accordingly. Unfortunately there are a couple of graphical errors which hinder gameplay on occasion. I run games at 1920 x 1080 and when activating full screen on this game, it cuts out a couple of centimeters along the bottom. Crucial items are inaccessible. Also, The Tiny Bang Story is rather short with there not being much in terms of replayability. Its addictive qualities become its own downfall as completion is possible in only a few hours. Maybe even less for the eagle eyed among us. Regardless of this, it is an interesting, fresh and relaxing ride for the duration. If you are a fan of point-and-click ‘hidden-item-locating' games, then for the price of a couple pints you may as well take the punt. (Oh and being a fan of puzzle games is also rather important, I would say.)

Wer ein Suchbildspielchen für zwischendurch oder seine Kids sucht und keine zu hohen Ansprüche stellt, wird vielleicht kurze Zeit von The Tiny Bang Story unterhalten. Es bietet einfache Rätsel in idyllischer Umgebung für Einsteiger, die nicht groß überlegen wollen. Allerdings sollten alle die Finger davon lassen, die von einem Adventure zwar Komfort, aber deutlich mehr als eine bloße Abfolge von Wimmelbildern und Simpelrätseln erwarten – Veteranen werden hier total unterfordert. Dabei hat Machinarium einen Weg vorgezeichnet, dem sowohl Anfänger als auch Kenner gerne folgen: Denn dort gab es nicht nur eine Story, die den Namen verdient hat, auch Artdesign und Musik sorgten umgehend für Stimmung. Wer noch nicht in die geheimnisvolle Welt der Roboter abgetaucht ist, sollte das schnell nachholen und sich dieses putzige, aber anspruchslose Abenteuer sparen.

For the cost of a decent lunch, you’re getting a charming and almost beautiful little genre merger here. It isn’t the best of its ilk, though - and when you’ve played its inspirations, it’s hard not to feel disappointed that The Tiny Bang Story stumbles over the very things those other games perfected.

For those of a methodical mindset, The Tiny Bang Story might hold a very specific appeal, with its self-contained challenges that you can gradually chip away at. But if you were hoping that the game's fetching hand-drawn art style was indicative of its broader quality, prepare for disappointment. If the hours of object-hunting attrition doesn't numb you to the bone, then the generic puzzle interludes probably will.

Tiny Bang Story er et usedvanlig lekkert spill, men det er ikke særlig godt. Gåtene er vanligvis artige å løse, men ingen av dem er spesielt fantasifulle eller minneverdige, og de eneste nøttene som skiller seg ut gjør det fordi de er mye dårligere enn resten. Men Tiny Bang Story er ikke helt galt heller. Presentasjonen er glimrende, og ting glir greit fremover mesteparten av tiden. Men selv når ting går bra mangler spillet noe som griper deg og gjør det fristende å komme videre. Dessuten er det ikke spesielt langt, så selv om du liker det får du ikke veldig mye innhold her. Jeg vil med andre ord ikke anbefale deg å punge ut fullpris for spesialutgaven i butikkene, men spillet er også tilgjengelig på Steam til en litt mer fornuftig pris. Hvis du synes det ser spennende ut og har en høy frustrasjonsterskel kan det godt være et alternativ å notere ned foran det neste store Steam-salget.

A few overly challenging puzzles and poor hint system can be ignored, but weak puzzle integration and a non-existent storyline dampen the desire to progress on. There are some entertaining puzzles to enjoy along the way, but since many of them merely replicate what’s been done time and time again, these aren’t enough to elevate the game above mediocrity. The biggest disappointment, however, is that of the four or five hours of gameplay offered here, the majority of your time will be spent scouring for tiny unseen objects, which stops being fun long before you’re done. And in this case, “done” consists of nothing more than dropping you off at the puzzle replay screen – there is no triumphant cinematic, no acknowledgement of success. Perhaps devoted casual game fans will have some tolerance for this type of hollow experience, but ultimately The Tiny Bang Story’s pieces just don’t add up to a fulfilling adventure in the end.
