One of the most original, well-crafted and entertaining games on the market finally's got its anticipated sequel. YoYo Games has achieved a perfect balance between adding new features and keeping the essence of the original game. The outcome: an excellent platformer that provides loads of fun.
Just to remind you what this is all about: you're in a doodled world with a 360º gravitational field that make objects orbiting around platforms. In this odd world, a civilization of monster plants is on the verge of extinction. In order to save them, you must feed them. How? Guiding the little character through platforms until reaching the one in which the monsters is located, and offer it as a meal. Usually, monsters will have to be sown in order to show up. Actually, for getting the maximum score, all seeds and gems must be collected in each level.
Although graphics and scenery have been slightly enhanced, users won't really notice it, due to the minimalistic nature of TNTBF's graphics. Improvements are, overall, related to new platforms, power-ups and handicaps. In other words, to game elements, specially seeds and diamonds gain importance in this version. Two game modes available: classic and epic mode (95 gems required to unlock the latter) with more than 50 levels through 7 worlds and some special badges to collect.
Both scenery and controls keep the scene of the original: jump and rotate left/right and let the gravity do its work. In brief, one of those sequels that make you feel that the wait was worth. It's a pity that it doesn't come with a Lite/Trial version.
