Cibele: I will very short with this one the game is super cringy and edgy. Thank god the games is so so short that I didn’t throw up. Gameplay is quite buggy, like character stucking etc. I’ve made a promise to myself not to play any point and click games anymore but this one felt different from this genre. NO MORE T_T

Castle of illusion: The game is great, felt super smooth and well optimized. Despite that I had bad time with the game. It’s just not made for me. I was struggeling with every boss battle, dying a LOT, running out of life points simply because of stupid mistakes. It’s not the game’s fault I blame myself for lacking the skill to pass the levels without so much trouble. Started the game with controller at the end of the first level I felt that I was going to receive a callus on my thumb where the stick was so I switched to keyboard.

Tiny and Big: The Grandpa’s Leftovers: I can’t describe how happy I was to find such a hidden gem among my backlog. I’ve started the game without knowing anything about it. I guess I entered the gib for it simply by looking at the screenshots in the store’s page. The game is fantastic and well done. I had ton of fun with it, it’s fairly short depending if you simply want to beat the game. I’m sure you can beat it under 2.5 hours, but if you want to get every achievements in this game it’s going to take a while. The game has the perfect achievements I have ever seen in any game. They are so balanced like not too hard but not too easy, not too grindy and at the same time a bit grindy they are so well balanced.I absolutly loved them, I had fun GRINDING (can’t belive I’m saying this). The gameplay is awesome and full of variety, it’s core is spinning around you make your different approach of the situation. Every cut you do in order to progress in the game is different. The soundtrack is lovly and it’s fitting perfectly in this game. If you are going to play it I will recommend to go for the achievements as well. Hands down to Tiny and Big for being such an awesome game and climbing to the list of my favorite games of all time


It’s a shame about the other games, but glad you loved Tiny and Big! It’s so nice finding hidden gems that turn out to be perfect. It was on my WL but my friend bought me it over Christmas. :D I should really play it soon, looks like a lot of fun.


You really should put top priority on Tiny and Big


Congratulations. You only have a few hundred left ;)


Thank you


I also found Castle of illusion difficult. I never played the original so I have no basis for comparison. I did manage to make my way to the end but I just couldn’t kill the final boss. I finally gave up.


I have never played the original as well, and oh god I was sweating on the last boss I think it took me half an hour and it was right before I go to bed so I was tired. Eventually I got a little luck and finish this game.

I was previously interested in Tiny and Big: The Grandpa’s Leftovers but have since hidden it on SG. How much of the focus is on timing/reflexes vs thinking it out?


Hhmm very interesting question. I would say it will take a while until you get how actually the game is working. There are couple of places where you might need a bit faster reflexes but I don’t think reflexes are the main part of the gameplay. Luck also might affect you through your playthrough. The objects might go wild sometimes when you cut them to smaller pieces.
Again if you are going for all 53 achievements the difficulty may rise a bit. Like there are achievements for completing the stage without dying. Some leves are quite large=more opportunities to die. I found a bit frustrating some of the levels while I was going for those achievements.
