This game was such a joy to play, and considering I first played it in 2022, that opinion can't be accused of being driven by nostalgia bias.
The premise for the plot is original and the characters are likeable with considerable depth. I really felt myself rooting for Raz throughout. Each level is so ridiculously creative and unique, with significantly more hits than misses.
I really enjoyed hunting high and low for collectables in the camp hub world, the asylum hub not so much due to it's less-open design. Each power up made me reimagine how I approached exploring, however there were a couple that remained good as forgotten when I was finished with them in a specific task.
This game ticked a lot of boxes for me as a fan of platformers, collect-a-thons and colourful characters. I can't wait until the sequel becomes a lot cheaper so I can play that too.
