i had a wild amount of fun with the first 60% of this game! you play as a dog named pablo who has to swing around with his grappling hook to collect stuff and save the world from an evil robot. the movement is really fun!! im way pickier with 2d platformers than 3d platformers simply bc there are so many of them and a lot of them look the same to me, but this was something special. the chunky pixelated ds-like art style is also really cute and nice to look at. unfortunately there is a massive difficulty spike in the latter 40% of this game and i could only finish it using the accessibility options (no damage, and later i turned on infinite jumping). im really grateful they were included but having to use them also kinda took the fun out of it. at the end i was glad it was over.

score: 7/10
