The chance to play in an imaginative and gleeful childhood world makes this a perfect game to share. The retro-modern Stranger Things-feel is ideal for parents and children playing together. It's a tale that keeps things light but also includes a moving backstory of the passing of one of the characters mother and the journey to come to terms with that in the family.
The two-player cooperative play suits parents and children working together. This, combined with the visual style, gives the game the feel of a Saturday-morning cartoon show. Taking charge of either Nessa or Demelza and exploring the island on their bike is an entertaining and well-observed recreation of backwater holiday destinations.
The game also has a series of books by Gabrielle Kent that expand the world and character of the island, while taking Nessa and Demelza on new adventures. In addition there is an animated cartoon in the works and you can download a recipe to make the cream tea you have in the game.
In addition to the rating advice parents should note that at one point players throw water on live electrics to make a connection and progress the game.
9+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. The two player mode gets around the reading requirement and let's younger players benefit from parental help.
You need to hold buttons to sprint and to trigger some special moves. If played in single-player mode the computer will play as the 2nd character and offer hints when puzzles are blocking game progression. A pet goose (Captain Honkers) will guide players in the larger environments with a visual indicator on the HUD and with audio cues.
