"When I say this is similar to Super Mario Galaxy, I mean it. The gameplay in CT forces you to stop and think during the game and investigate every inch of the screen to get the most out of each level. Your job is to collect gems strategically placed on each map, as well as accomplish specific goals that are unique from level to level. The gem portion of the game is your main focus, as each map provides a nice hiding place for the gems.
The gems can sometimes be underneath plants, locked away behind doors and/or hidden in specific underground (sometimes above) areas. They are the main focus here and you shouldn’t ignore them. Without the gems, you cannot open up new worlds, and you cannot open up bonus levels after the game is completed. I know what you’re thinking, ‘Wow, this sounds tedious’, and that was my initial thought about the game, but it’s far from it. The thing that keeps searching for these objects interesting is the controls of the game."
