The Tiny Bang Story
I really liked this game, I wish there were more like it. So many of the games on Big Fish Games have the same concept, this is something different, which is refreshing.

The demo was fun but....
I played the demo and had a blast. True, there are little to no directions in the beginning as to what you are supposed to do, but I quickly figured it out. Some of the puzzles are simple, others are challenging. I agree with some of the other reviews about not being able to skip puzzles, that aspect I found rather annoying. The game overall (from what I can tell by the demo) is a lot of fun, you just have to have patience and persistance. I will not be buying this game however, mainly because of the fact that you can't skip puzzles, which means you may get stuck and not be able to move on....
Try it and see how far you get.

Goodness...I'm not really sure how to review this game. On the one hand, I love the fact that you're just thrown into it and have to figure it out completely on your own.
On the other hand, I hate the fact that you're just thrown into it and have to figure it out completely on your own.
The graphics are fun and quirky. The music is only mildly irritating...but I think that was only because I was getting frustrated at not being able to figure something out.
I would have given this five stars if it had a 'skip' button on some of the mini-games. Because, if you can't figure one out, you're just stuck, period.
Overall, a fun game that really uses up your brain power!

Almost Didn't Buy It
I downloaded this game and tried it, got frustrated and it didn't seem like much, so I erased it. I came back here and saw all the good reviews, so I decided to install it again. Guess what? It got better and I found that it was very different and interesting. I haven't played it all yet, but I am glad I gave it a second chance and bought it.

A nice easygoing game, highly recommend if u dont want judgements for wrong answers or too many clicks. Puzzles are challenging though. There are no instructions or "correct" hints provided and u cannot skip the minigames. Not being able to skip was the reason for 4 stars instead of 5. Developers need to understand not all people can solve every type of puzzle or do arcade because of certain "handicaps" they may have (ie colorblindness, coordination) therefore they failed in the one thing they tried to get rid of in their game.. stress. Dont get me wrong i loved this game, highly enjoyable if u want something out of the ordinary.

Could have been Perfect
If only it did not have the arcade style mini games I hate that part. The visual quality of this game is charming and truly fun to play... if not for the crummy lil'mini games. This game is really worth your money.

Cute and Adorable
The art is cute and adorable and this is a game that I will put aside and love the second, third, and fourth time I play it. A keeper. Only downside is the length. I would have loved it to go on a little longer. A nice change of pace from the usual creepy stuff I love and buy. Every now and then we need a pleasant game to relax us, not scare the bejesus out of us.

Charming Puzzle Game
This is a very charming hidden object/puzzle game. Unlike so many other of the hidden object type games out there today, there's no dark, sinister atmosphere. (Not that dark and sinister don't have their place, but some variety is nice.) The games has some lovely, brightly colored hand-drawn art, and nice music. There is very little by way of storyline, but somehow that doesn't seem to matter. The beauty of this little miniature world is enough to be engaging. Unlike most hidden object/puzzle games, there are no tutorials, no hints, no way to skip puzzles. You've got to just feel your way around until you figure it out. I found this to be part of the game's charm, but some could find that frustrating. The one aspect I did find frustrating was that a couple of the mini-games were arcade style games that require fairly fast reflexes - not super-challenging, but enough to be annoying. You can't skip over these mini-games, and the games don't save your progress. If you mess up, you have to start over from the beginning of the mini-game, rather than starting from where you last "died". Other than a couple of these annoying arcade style mini-games, however, I found the puzzles fun and challenging, and the game thoroughly enjoyable.

I found this game to be very intriguing and fun until I beat it, which ubfortunately didn't take very long. Also, there were a few puzzles that I wish had a skip option. Overall though, this game was a fun challenge.

Lots to like about this game - very original graphics, lovely sound and game play.
A couple of faults 1/ The compass game! Annoying+++, far too difficult and pointless. 2/ Lack of storyline.
