Due to this fact, we won’t recommend playing by children! Now, the thing the most interests us are the puzzles and the routes in the game. There are two bosses and two different routes available at any given moment and each one is completely different than the other. Bosses are extremely hard to beat and they are the peak of the game if you want to invest a lot of time in order to complete a level.
