    It's USA: English, French & Spanish.

    I marked that correctly, this seems to be a display error of GBATemp. A mod will correct this.

    Fixed it up for you. [​IMG]


    It's a decent game if you like puzzle games. Use lines to make the kiwi navigate the levels by drawing on the touchscreen. Gather 10 feathers scattered about the levels to gain an extra life (how many feathers you have collected seems to carry over from level to level). Lines can be "pulled" to slingshot the kiwi to higher locations or to blast through destructible blocks. Make it to the exit before the timer runs out. Watch out for spikes, they kill you instantly and tend to be placed in dastardly locations. It has a tutorial that explains the controls. Very simple controls and very addictive. A nice little time-waster of a game.

    Not sure how many levels it's supposed to have.....

    Thanks a lot, Rayder !

    I think it's a quite good game. Thanks for explaining it in such detail. The graphic style is quite unique, it's a puzzle game like "Rooms" or "Neves", you can play one or two levels just for fun...

    The Japanese version wasn't too bad. It reminded me of Kirby's Canvas Curse, since you have to make lines to move Ivy around. The levels are not too hard and it's a pretty good puzzler.

    This game looks good!
    I'll be getting the Wii version, though. I'll download the DS version.
