This adorable game, set in the middle of a picturesque garden, has you helping Shiny, the cute little firefly, to find his babies. Youll have to fly, run, hide and defend yourself against a legion of enemies. Stubborn mosquitoes, hungry toads, mischievous plants, sneaky wasps, endlessly long centipedes and lots of other little, dangerous garden dwellers are going to get in your way and make your life difficult.

Your reflexes will be tested, as well as your wit and intellect as you navigate through this beautiful, colorful world helping Shiny in his search. All kinds of different animations let you know how Shinys feeling. So youll always know if hes feeling happy, concerned, tired or angry. That will help you solve the trickiest situations in the game. Use your ability to shine skillfully: the babies can only follow Shiny when he is lit up, but that also makes him visible to his enemies

Can you reunite Shiny with his family?

Great, high-quality graphics
A charismatic character with numerous animations
Three different worlds with a total of 33 levels, teeming with enemies, bosses, puzzles and other game elements

Love the game and there are 1000 achievement points if you finish the whole game, so that is great too.

Looks like this could be a little gem that slipped through unnoticed. I shall find out for myself in around 30 minutes.

This is a very high quality game, and easily my game of the week. Would be very sad to see it go unnoticed.
