Posted: 5 months ago.
Author: Andy Robertson.
The game world is made to look like it is handcrafted and can be flipped to see behind objects. This gives the experience a tactile feel and invites exploration. It's a more exploratiive take on the Mario style platform games from Nintendo.

- Difficulty: Mellow mode enables you to fly as much as you want, which makes progress easier. You also get more eggs when you eat enemies. You can turn this on or off at any time via the pause menu.Reading: There is minimal reading, apart from menus.
- Controls: You can select between three button mappings, but you can't remap controls. You can disable the controller rumble feature. In two-player mode, you can jump on each other's backs so each player has just two buttons (walking and jumping / eating and throwing).
- Image calibration: In mellow mode there is a flashing flower indicator to let you know when you are near a flower.
- Audio calibration: In mellow mode there is a rumble indication to let you know when you are near a flower.
