AceGamez: Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure Review

Not only is Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure a classic original game (that's sure to become a franchise if it attains the success that it so rightfully deserves) but it's one that combines platforming and puzzling in an ingenious fashion, making it a real breath of fresh air in the stale atmosphere of endless casual game derivatives and shovelware that continues to plague the DS. Appealing character design, wonderfully colourful visuals, an addictive puzzle mechanic, varied and challenging level layouts, and a range of enemy types and abilities with which to dispatch them makes this platform-puzzle hybrid so good that it's the nearest you can get to playing Mario without actually playing Mario - and no higher praise can be bestowed upon a game than that. As Professor Hatsworth himself would say: good show! (Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure, Nintendo DS) 9/10
