An entirely beguiling little adventure that advancing technology and a vastly different marketplace haven't robbed of its merits.

The colours are vivid, the detail incredible and the vocal performances, led by Foley, are fine. Happily, it works on both a child's and adult's level.

Doesn't merit much enthusiasm or indignation; it just skitters across your consciousness, leaving no traces except a vague depression.

Pixel perfect.
