Cute game, but I didn't like

how the ending was nothing but a big sequel hook. It almost feels like they forgot to include some levels after the end cinematic.

God but this is awful!

I hate how it decides "You MUST use THIS character!" & then kills you if you don't.

@shellyhearse -- I don't see the 'copycat' aspect at all in this game. The characters are totally different (and cuter!). Any game made is usually going to have some characteristics that resemble other games, and bearing that in mind, one could say "3 Pandas" is a copycat of "Home Sheep Home."

I'm not sure what the third commenter was referring to when he said that the game forces you to use specific characters. I went through most of the game as the rabbit, only rarely having to switch to one of the other abilities--which I found disappointing. In these sorts of games, the puzzles are supposed to require you to figure out how to use all of your abilities together, not let you double/triple jump past most problems. (Level 6 is especially egregious in this, since it explicitly tells you to switch--but the rabbit is fine on his own!)

And if we want to call it a copycat, we should at least point back to the old Gobliiins games...but at some point, you just have to declare the "three creatures with unique abilities having to work together to solve puzzles" to be its own sub-genre, and evaluate games based on how well they follow--or choose not to follow--the conventions that have been established over time.

Well sorry. I am french and have a very bad english sometimes! ^^'

I just wanted to say that some elements of the game was very inspired by these two games (like music debuts levels or green creature). :)
