At first I wanted to give a negative review, because the quality of the game is honestly not that good. The story is just okay, no cutscenes - just static dialogues. There are some bugs, most of them can be resolved by restarting the game. I am really disappointed by the jankiness, I really expected better from WayForward, but I guess it's a licensed game, so fans like me will buy it no matter what. As for graphics, they are passable, but sadly there is no graphical settings whatsoever, not even to change the resolution and I think some anti-aliasing solution could help with the image quality on the main character (at least in 1080p, which I played at). There was some weird blurring when controlling the main character, but that could be just a side effect of me playing this game on a high refresh rate screen (144Hz) and the game wasn't prepared for such scenario. Anyway, I am giving a positive review, because even though the game costs more than it should and it's not that good in general, I still had fun with it, to the point that I 100% it. Since I watched Trollhunters for the first time I was always saying that it could be an amazing video game, there is lost of lore and upgrades - unfortunately, this isn't what I imagined, but I'm hoping Netflix will try to make more games based on their franchises. Oh and also, if you didn't watch the series, I truly recommend doing that, besides, the game is set after the events of the series, so keep that in mind too. If you really want to play this game, wait for some discount, at full price it's not really worth it in my opinion.

My family and I love the Trollhunters series and while this game may be aimed a bit more towards young children, it was an absolute blast to play! It is a little short; I took my time to gather everything, complete the achievements, play all the levels of Gnome tossing, Go-go Sushi, and the Luug coin hunt, and it only took me 13 hours. However, it was a very entertaining 13 hours :) The whole story line ties in with things from the show, there are plenty of references and jokes to all of Tales of Arcadia, and the game play just makes you want to keep going! I couldn't wait for my kid to go to sleep for the night so I could get back to my game!! :D 10/10 would and will play it again!!

I haven't gotten very far into the gameplay, but I love it so far! Definitely a must-play if you're a fan of the Tales of Arcadia series, as it goes right along with the events of the series and has fully voiced cut scenes. My one complaint would be that the "tutorial" levels aren't very good at explaining how you do certain things, like sliding or high jumping. It simply informs you that you can do them, but leaves you to figure exactly how to do them on your own.
Edit: It is pretty expensive for such a short game, and it does assume that you've watched Netflix's Tales of Arcadia series. If you haven't, it's just confusing and very spoiler-y. I enjoy it, but I would wait until it goes on sale to buy it if you're interested in playing it for yourself; I finished it in only 8 hours of on and off playing.

I love tales of arcadia, and I was super stoked when the game was announced.
I do have some criticisms- keeping in mind that it did just recently release, there isn't a whole heck of a lot of story, and the difficulty is minimal at best even with a hard mode. There's also a weird glitchI found- after unlocking the shield, if you're in trollmarket and you return to the game from steam overlay, you might get stuck holding your shield up unable to do anything or move Jim. That's really annoying, I've had to reset to the main menu at least a couple times for that lol.
All that being said, this game is really charming. The platforming holds up, the item collection is interesting and is on theme with the show, and the levels have good aesthetic and variety. If I were to add anything (besides more levels), it would be online multiplayer (instead of just local), the ability to map controls, the ability to play as other characters in postgame, and voiceover for the lines in trollmarket. Overall, I really enjoyed this game a lot and it was fun to 100% :)

A fun platformer that plays a lot like Aladdin on SNES.
