(Did you like my video review? What can I do to make them better? I would like to do more of them, I just need a little feedback! Thanks!)

Verdict
Pros
+ Beautiful bright world
+ Music is passable
+ Immersive world
Cons
- Screen tearing
- No designated free jump button
- "Hold R2 to win" gameplay
- Boring fighting mechanics
10 Presentation
The game looks, feels, and sounds great! The environments are made out of what looks like elementary school art supplies including cardboard, clay and paint.
4 Gameplay
The gameplay almost feel like it was put together by the same elementary art class. The TLT calls itself a platformer, but has no jumping outside of designated jump spots. No map or free roaming, all confined to "point A to point B" objective hunting. Also, normally I don't really care about frame rates and things, but this one gets pretty signification screen tearing and frame spikes in open areas. Pretty noticeable too.
3 Lasting Appeal
Almost none, if you can even muster up the courage to finish this ironically bland title.
4.8
out of 10
Overall (not an average)
What looks like a fun and beautiful spiritual sequel to the DKC64, SM64 and other bright colorful platformers of old, is more of a bland waterings down of an "adventure".
