"Work Together to Prevent Hare Loss" - That's what it says on the back cover...

You can always count on developer From Software to come up with unique and experimental games. This platformer features a dual-stick control scheme to move the player's two characters at the same time. Though easier to play with another person so that you can focus mainly on one character, playing both of them simultaneously offers a different kind of experience. The screen is divided into two halves and they can split when one character is moving further ahead or staying further behind. There are constant interactions between the two screens and teamwork between the two characters are mandatory to enable to player to progress to the next section. The game has a timer but it can be extended by picking up clocks found within the layout of each stage. The bosses are clever, the puzzles are fun, and as if the game itself is not precious enough, there is also a versus mode found within for up to 4 players.

LIBRARY STATUS: 4 out of 5
