Overrated, at least on the ST. Pond feels horribly weightless when jumping, with the lack of sound effects not helping matters, and the scrolling is as bad as it gets. Any section requiring successive jumps, particularly the diagonal timing-based ones, becomes almost impossible, when you breeze through it on other systems. For a game where exploration is so central to the appeal and reward, this becomes a massive disincentive to play it properly.
