Summary

I’m all for dental hygiene and supplying information on the subject so a platformer promoting this seems a good idea. The problem is the actual game parts are not good, the platforming is very basic with the jump feeling a bit squishy and delayed making the many jumps a right pain. You get no guidance or tutorials so you have to make it up as you go, the rooms for level select are in some stupid doesn’t make sense order and you can only get hit twice by an enemy before death. I just couldn’t get on with it because aside from the controls and level design, the music, the music has constant whistles going off, and even entering a door triggers a whistle. I didn’t hate whistling before but I do now! The health part of the game makes it less appealing to younger players which is a shame, Yes you can increase the hit points but it’s a big ask as they could easily look past my shallow hatred of whistling and controls, I mean it’s a cute bunny talking about dental hygiene but with such a crazy mechanic, kids just won’t put up with that. Ginger The Tooth Fairy is a game where you would rather keep the tooth.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
