Basically your player swings on clouds, leaves the atmosphere, and explores other worlds. The mechanics of the swinging and flying are decent and easy, but not realistic, which was a bit off-putting to me at first.
Each planet has something to “solve” — this varies by planet and isn’t very intuitive. You may need a walkthrough; I did. The solutions are simple to perform, but not obvious. If you use a walkthrough, it’s a short game that can be finished in around 10 minutes.
The ending is as good as the rest of the game, but I don’t want to spoil it; it leaves a feeling of uncertainty and make you wonder whether it’s better to get lost into fantasy or be down to earth.
