    I could have sworn that I'd done a review on this one, but apparently not!

    Not doing one now, but I will post some comments that I had made about the game.

    To get a hint, "collect" the cute little bugs that are flying around.  The gauge in the upper right corner tracks your hint progress.  Once it's full, you won't be able to click on any more of the bugs until the hint is used.

    It's kind of refreshing to have a game that you have to *think* about, but I need those HINTS, often... at which point I say to myself, D'oh! I can't believe I didn't see that!

    BTW, when the hint button doesn't work, it's because you've missed something on another scene and will have to complete it before you can do anything else where you are (or that you've completed that scene).

    There are NO SKIPS in this game, so you either figure them out, make use of the Youtube videos, or stop playing.

    I did finish the game, and I loved it Sunny

    I really enjoyed this clever wordless puzzle game. In design and even artwork it reminds me a little of the *wonderful* games by Amanita Design: Machinarium, Botanicula, and Samorost 1 and 2, which I dearly love.

    Exactly, I'm right with you!  I love ALL of the games like that!  I really need to try Shaban, as I think it's the same kind of game.

    Have you played the free ones on Amanita's site?  They're a lot of fun, though of course they are short.  You can find them HERE.  The top three (Botanicula, Machinarium, and Samorost 2) are the only paid titles there Sunny

    I have, and like them but they're *very* short. Samorost 1 is still free (I believe) and was my 'gateway' into their games. They're great and I would LOVE to see more from this creative group!

    Have you played Lilly Looking Through?  It's the same type of gameplay.

    Only the demo. I still haven't gotten around to buying the full game, but I will!
    ETA - It's on sale for $4.99 at GOG; sweet!   Okay

    Guess I am the lone dissenter.  I didn't like Tiny Bang at all.    I did finish it with the help of some Dollartree magnifying glasses.
