This is actually a pretty neat 3D platformer.

No mouse controls only keyboard.

If you like the Super Granny platformer games you may like this one.

Give it a go!

I ADORE it! It's absolutely delicious! I just played it for 20 minutes when I stopped and bought it. I was in a bit of a funk today and in need of something to put a big ol' goofy smile on my face.

This was it.

I agree, this is a very neat little platformer. I would love to be able to use my mouse - I always end up twisted around like a pretzel - but these puzzles are more "thinking" puzzles rather than the action/arcade type so it's really not a problem. I was mostly using the "Q" and "E" keys (they flip the box) and the arrow keys very little. It appears you can "die" but I think I saw that you have nine tries per level which seems pretty generous.

With a combination of just-right graphics, great puzzles, a wonderful tongue-in-cheek sense of (albeit, dark) humor and - That Voice... Well, I couldn't buy it fast enough.

Before I started playing again I just wanted to stop by and say, "Thank you, Big Fish!" for for not being afraid to make a lot of "different" types of games available to us. Happy weekend, all!

I shared this quote with Pierre, the gentleman who provided the narration for Vanessa. I think you made his day!

What an absolutely adorable game! It is very different from the norm. I never could get points because I couldn't seem to figure out how to get her out of the scene in the number of turns required. Mainly because I kept forgetting which was Q and E turned the box. So, it does take a bit to get used to. I am only halfway through the trial, but this is a game to be take slowly and savored. At one point I did start to feel trapped in with Vanessa, wondering if I would be able to get her out ever, lol. I love the humor from the narrator and the pop-ups. I also love the smart aleck comments by her classmates although I think I would want to leave them in the box! Definitely a purchase for me! Thanks BF!

I honestly like this game. No, I love this game. It's very addicting, and satisfying when you figure out how to complete a level. I got a kick out of Vanessa's friend who's trapped in one of the levels. He says, "Vanessa, you gotta get me out of here" and then he jumps on her back so she can carry him out. lol

I also liked the background graphics, which depict a dream-like state, and the flashes of lightning complement the atmosphere perfectly. I liked the end-of-level stat screen picture showing Vanessa hugging a wall and peeking around the corner as a giant spider passes by. Very cute.

I highly recommend this to fans of puzzle games. This will provide you with hours of brain-teasing fun. Get it. You won't be disapointed.

I'm looking for a few more games to fill out my punch card here at the end of the month. So I finally got around to playing a few minutes of the demo, and this one looks like a winner! I need it look at the rest of the comments here in the forums first is all, but if it continues like it starts, I'm in!
