Games that tackle social problems are generally a good thing, The story here is bullying and they handle it well and do a good job overall. I liked the puzzle elements as it was something different and promoted brain power usage. I didn’t however like much else, The platforming is very basic and the whole game formula is very repetitive and stale after a few instances. A shame but a game still worth looking at just for the story and how they approach the whole bullying scenario. In short, Its basic but with a strong story and decent puzzle system, Is worth a look at least.
