"The aim of the game is to travel through each level as quickly as possible to either receive a bronze, silver, or gold medal. Sounds simple, right? Wrong. As I stated earlier, the game is unnecessarily difficult, with low target times, making it really hard to achieve a gold, or even silver medal. This combined with the difficult control system, it's hard not to find the game really frustrating and just want to give up. I've spent quite a lot of time on the game, trying to understand the system and get to grips, but I'm finding it very difficult to achieve anything more than a bronze medal on most levels. The level isn't simply just to run from one end to the other as fast as possible, there are many obstacles and enemies in the way, with a few checkpoints spread throughout. Dying comes thick and fast in the game, even touching enemies and falling in to pools of lava, it's far too easy to die. To achieve gold medals, you're going to have to have a whole lot of luck, or be greatly skilled."

Translation: It's too hard. 4/10
