Review

The game is straight up unique and awesome. The gameplay looks like a cartoon series but actually it’s game. The game is really awesome in my opinion this game brought my dream of controlling cartoons came true. This is one of a kind game. Overall the game was fun to play and the level of work done by StudioMDHR is really great hat’s off to them. I hope to see some similar game from StudioMDHR. Every thing was awesome in terms of story to graphics to animation loved the game.
