Fine, I'll admit itů the faceless, big breasted, knife wielding nurses were kind of a turn on; plus Yahtzee's nonchalant, card dealing shuriken throwing style was pretty cool.

A decent side-scroller that could have been even better with sound FX and a fix for the bug where touching the left edge of the screen at the start of every section means you have to restart.
- Joby-Rome Otero, Luxoflux
Gets really repetitive really quickly.

The haunting soundtrack made me feel sad, like I was sitting in a wood-paneled room watching a 1979 made-for-tv movie starring Faye Dunaway.

Clicking on Yahztee after he fell caused the whole game to restart -- it's like the game knew that trickery was the only way to get me to play it again.

The designer here has clearly learned that what game players enjoy most is in fact splattering themselves all over the landscape in new, exciting, unpredictable and painful ways that demonstrate clearly the inherent flaws of the camera and control schemes - frequently.
- Richard Dansky, Red Storm
While it looks nice, I was the opposite of scared while playing this game.
- Dan Teasdale, Harmonix
Constantly wracked by some quite severe loading issues and bugs, but what I could get to work wasn't exactly setting the world alight.
