"What we have here is a well made adventure with mostly enjoyable puzzles and a distinct, goofy personality that deserves your attention. That said, the changes for the DS version are far from significant enough to warrant a definitive recommendation over the PC version. Instead, which one you should get will ultimately boil down to what you're looking for. If you want to be playing the game on the road – and it will last a fair amount of time, as you'll be clocking hours in double figures, working your way through the six chapters – then it's a no-brainer, while the PC version offers better overall presentation. Either way, though, Runaway: The Dream of the Turtle is worth checking out. Don't let the silly title or the cel-shaded look fool you."
