Key Mechanics

  • Exploration
  • Collection
  • Time limits

I chose to look at this game for the fact that it is an exploration and collection based game, many of the topics I had looked into previously have involved some form of exploration or the recovery of artifacts. This game seemed to follow a similar theme.

I also really liked the graphics of this game, the mixture of cartoon, silhouettes and realistic art worked really well together and gave a 2D game a lot of depth.Screenshot 1
