Arbitrary backtracking/padding and a slightly annoying interface mar an otherwise solid "Metroidvania Lite" game

Summary: Let me start out by saying that I finished this game in eight hours despite taking my time, and when you consider all the back-and-forth traveling you have to do, I'd estimate the game has no more than five hours' worth of unique content. The short length isn't what bothers me, though; in fact, I much rather would have played a three hour game if it meant I didn't have to deal with all of the padding (see also: Cave Story, which handles this much better in my opinion).
Summary: Daughter says that it is educational and fun. She love polar bears. My daughter says that it is also adventurous and it teaches her about the habit of the polar bears and the animals that they eat. The ordeal they go through for survival is taught as well. She love this so much.
Summary: I bought this game for myself, but quickly realized it would be much more interesting for a child. It's pretty easy and there's a lot of running around time. It's not a bad game, but definitely more targeted toward children, in my opinion, 10 and under. If that's who it's meant for, then I would recommend it, but otherwise, I'd advise you spend your money elsewhere.
Excerpt: "...many challenges face the young Arctic animals during the early years of their lives'. I started to play the game, on the top screen on the left there is a large red heart which next to it says 3 and there is a message in the middle which says ' Each time you emerge from the den your strength and bravery will increase. Today for the first time, you will explore beyond the confines of Snow Mountain!' On the bottom screen there are two polar bears ...
Pros: Learn about polar bears in the arctic
Cons: graphics arent very good and things to do are limited
