It does float! And doesn't get soggy in milk! :)

I'm curious to hear some opinions on this game. I've read some mixed reviews.

It's a fun, quirky game that is quite unlike anything else you have ever played. It's not the most polished thing though. It can slow down, and there's no music during gameplay (I never understood why). I like the concept though, although it's tough to describe.

Cool. I'm all for games that are unique, even if the execution isn't neccesarily the best. Lack of music is dissapointing, but I've kinda grown accustomed to that w/Jaguar games.

How do you think the challenge in the game is? Is it balanced? Also, is it a very long game?

I never got too far, maybe up to levels five or six, but it didn't seem too difficult on the stock setting. It does get chaotic, so that's one thing to consider. There are multiple difficulty modes you can choose from as well.

One thing I recommend is reading the instructions when you get it, otherwise the game might not make any sense at all.

As far as length, there's twenty or thirty levels (I do not recall which as it's been a while since I played my cart). The game will permanently unlock stages for you to continue from after every five levels are completed, so you do not need to do the whole thing in one sitting. Levels can take five to ten minutes to finish, at least the early ones, from what I've been able to tell.
