Unfortunately, I did not finish this game like I had planned to this weekend. I am on the kitchen level, and loving the gameplay of it, but the sneak launch of Hi Fi RUSH took over my weekend and I played several hours of that instead.
But I really like Tinykin. As an avid fan of these collectathon platformers, I fell in love with it almost immediately. It does such a good job of constantly leading you to its collectibles or breadcrumbing you around each self-contained room. The puzzles haven't been overly complicated or obtuse, and I only rarely haven't had the tools needed to solve something right then and there.
I think the reason I haven't completed it is because I wouldn't move on from a zone unless I found everything in it. So some levels I beat easily in one sitting, and others I spent 45 minutes looking for the final 3 pollen bits I missed. If only there had been a way to highlight the collectibles you are missing (or at least which region they are in) to speed up that process, because, yeah, the final bits can be a real pain.
All in all, this gets a solid 4/5 from me unless the final level and a half introduces some wild mechanic like a boss fight that doesn't make any sense or something.
