OverviewOverview

This is a platform game where you play a fox on a quest to recover pages from a magical book that will save his world. It takes gameplay in a more action-oriented direction but the islands and characters are full of quirky character and treasures like Animal Crossing.

The exploration, platforming and lovely worlds are of such high quality that this is an excellent game for players of any age. For those looking for a running, jumping and exploration game that accommodates newer or younger players it's a great option.
