In total theres 120 gold medals to earn, and you need certain number of them to unlock new areas. The map is gorgeous and so its the music. Its very interesting, i want to see how the story unfolds. I think this is an instant classic
Thanks Frost! We intentionally shied away from giving too much away in that first video, but will for sure post some more in the coming days. As you point out Gesundheit! uses his um err 'special powers' in some interesting new ways later in the game. The gold medals you mentioned (or StarFruit rather) are there so that no-one who gets stuck on a particular puzzle will ever feel like they cant progress. You can skip levels but need X number of Starfruit to unlock the door to each of the FOUR world maps.
Hope others are also enjoying - be sure and check out the iPad version, where the large screen really makes all the difference
