Lost in Play does a lot of things right, but makes enough mistakes that I didn't finish it. It's a puzzle game based around two children who are (presumably) playing and imagining all the things in the game, rather than being whisked off to another dimension. This gives the game a lot freedom and variety in the set pieces and characters. The puzzles are generally fairly self contained, which is a breath of fresh air compared to some of the older ones where you carry objects around for hours. The art style and animations are beautiful, and the controls are great. Towards the end it starts to drop the ball as many of the puzzles I didn't think made any sense, even after looking up the answers.
