I'm really liking the cutesy visuals in this one and the game plays a little like a few classics I've played such as Burger Cat so I'm easing into it slowly but enjoying my time. It's a simple but smart puzzle platformer with lots of charm and should go down well with the whole family too. Seems to be an IAP unlock as well, so no shady freemium aspects at least!

Downloading now. I like the cutesy artwork and the idea of collecting pics of different animals.

Downloaded thanks to sinkorswim's GOTW nom. The first world is a bit too hand-holdy for my liking, but the second really makes you think and is far more enjoyable.

IAP-wise, there's a $0.99 IAP to remove ads, which are fairly unobtrusive between levels anyway.

There are also IAPs to unlock individual worlds early for $1.99, or all worlds for $2.99. These aren't required though. All worlds are unlockable simply by playing through the earlier levels.

Edit: seems like a purchase is required for worlds 4 and 5 - see my later post.

Hangs on iPad Air after each solved level. You have to kill it and restart.

Agree that this is a nice puzzler starting from the second world. Some puzzles really require some xperimenting to figure them out. The three-star system is turned into a three-(photo)flash "collecting" system kind of, which is a nice take on it and must be interesting for kids, but doesn't get in the way at all of me (grown up) enjoying the game. And I'd actually say that difficulty level is not aimed at kids.

About unlocking: I am stuck now after the third world. I have perfect scores on all levels of Hazardous Hills, Lopsided Lake and Wiggly Woods, but Daedalian Dunes is still locked. It could be intentional to make me spend some money or because I played the end of LL and a big part of WW in airplane mode (I really was on a plane ). But then again, unlock a next world should not depend on connectivity, right?

An idea for the dev: add panning around with one finger touch when the finger touches the background (not any game elements). Two finger panning works of course, but I prefer to use one finger (call me lazy?)
