Henry Hatsworth has a lot going for it, from the lighthearted goofiness of its plot and characters to its unique gameplay. The game has the player freely alternating between the platforming adventure on the top screen and the deceptively simple match-three puzzle game on the lower screen, the events in both affecting one another. Your aim is to get Henry in one piece across the dangerous stages in pursuit of a fabled suit with magical abilities, each collected piece of which provides a new game mechanic necessary for the road ahead.
I found the bosses to be more challenging and well designed than I expected, while the platforming sections were nothing to write home about at best, at worst sort of frustrating in moments.
It’s a good execution of its concept all told, and one of the games that took the hardware most seriously in its core design.
This game has a really really nice concept and I fuck with it gamer style but holy fuck the level design is the most horrible shit I've seen in any platformer ever.
This game is brilliant fun! I loved the tense balance of flipping between the puzzle realm and platforming. I loved the jaunty story and the art. I loved the whole package.
One of those weird games that ends up being a lot better than it looks
Entertaining enough, but the difficulty curve feels more like a difficulty wall and I didn't like having to restart a level because I fell into a pit.
