Shiny the Firefly isn’t great. Let’s just get that out there now. It’s not great, and in fact, it can be rather boring, particularly for the first third of the game. Even so, it has a solid core concept, it looks excellent, the level designs are usually pretty good, and it has the potential to be something remarkable. Unfortunately, it fails to live up to its own potential and falls flat in many ways – though there is certainly much enjoyment to be gleaned from the experience.
