    Been playing this on the PC past few days, its an enjoyable game. Thing I don't like is the constantly respawning enemies when you are trying to repair a machine to get a lift working, can become tiresome like mentioned.

    Another thing that gets me is that it feels like the perspective can be off at times, for example on the 2nd Raiders level where you have made it across the bridges and outside with a machine on the right and what looks like big temple doors. There is a blue jewel on the pedestal, took me ages to get the jump just right to get it.

    One thing I do like is that you can play it in short bursts, with each level taking about 25 mins to finish if you smash everything and collect as much as possible. So if you start getting bored its easy enough to just finish off a level and call it a day.

    Very good points, those respawning enemies are a nuisance.

    Been enjoying this on the 360, completed the up to the 4th level on ToD. I've found the one puzzle on the 2nd ToD level to be very annoying (the one with the 2 rotating columns which you need to jump between to reach a chest on top) Other than that though it's been good fun.

    Did the designers of the Traveller’s Tales logo also do the Hexus logo? They look very similar... maybe they're actually the same company...

    Graphics are really good for the DS, but the ones in the review are slightly deceiving as they're from the cut-scenes, not in-game footage.
