It's always a bad sign.
Ditto on that, however after watching the video of the gameplay on their site I decided to give it a shot. It reminds me a lot of some computer games I used to play in the 90s, like Jungle Jill, or Jazz Jackrabbit. I haven't played this yet, so I don't know how accurate those comparisons might be. They are just what came to mind. Off to play.
