Each of the 35 levels is hand-rendered in cute fluffy-platformer style, reminiscent of Nifflas’ games and An Untitled Story, specially in its cast of cute creatures hopping around the levels you are sweating to get through. Even the lovable Bunchie gets a cameo (intentional or not) in a level.
Some small things could use some looking at. For example, to get 100% completion, you have to go through the tutorial. There is a single level that’s larger than one screen (for no good reason even), making you use the right button to scroll.
Level difficulties are uneven, and the star guide for difficulty is at most a vague suggestion – specially considering the hidden items, which need to be acquired anyway to open the way to the final world.
Most importantly, the final level is a gauntlet of four puzzles without checkpoints in between, all of which require exact handling even if you are aware of what needs to be done.
Overall, FIG is a cute and clever game, with a creativity that makes up for its irregular difficulty curve. 4 stars.
