When I got Tetris for the DS years ago, I always thought it would be really nifty if my actions in the Tetris game would manipulate a game in the top screen. Henry Hatsworth accomplishes that exact goal. The top screen of the game is a platforming game and the bottom screen is a puzzle game. Taken individually, either of these elements are honestly very average in design and polish, but when integrated together the design takes on an entirely new dimension delivering a unique gaming experience.

GAMEPLAY: As mentioned before, the top screen displays platforming action where you run, jump, collect, slash, and shoot. As you defeat enemies and collect stuff, those monsters and items become puzzle pieces in the bottom screen, which is constantly filling up. Pressing the "X" button, you can switch to puzzle mode for a limited period of time to finish off enemies and activating items by matching three or more of the colored tiles. The bottom screen plays exactly like Planet Puzzle League, Tetris Attack, or Pokemon Puzzle League. Build up enough power in puzzle mode and you get the ability to shoot energy bullets from your gun or even transform into a giant robot. If you neglect to eliminate enemies in the lower screen, they come back to haunt you and cause you trouble in the top screen. Items that are not activated in puzzle mode and neglected are lost forever. As you play you will collect treasures that can be cashed in for power-ups and upgrades which affect various abilities in the platforming and puzzle screens. The integration between the two modes is almost seamless. My biggest complaint is that collision detection for some attacks is really poor, especially the "ground slam" attack. Luckily you are rarely forced to use those abilities except when you choose to do so.

If you are a fan of either (or preferably both) platform games or puzzle games then you will love Henry Hatsworth! I must disagree with the other reviewer in regards to the story / characters being annoying. I find them quite endearing with the sound affects tied to each character being quite humorous and charming. The artwork is beautiful, and the sound is great for the game.

The controls are where this game really shines in my opinion, platforming usually comes down to the simplest common factor, the jumping and general controls. Henry Hatsworth shines in both of those categories, the controls are so tight that you can really control the character with fantastic precision. The character doesn't feel floaty or bloated in any way. The mechanics of the game are fantastic as well, complete puzzles to unlock bonus items, refill your life bar, and eliminate enemies. Switch back to the platforming and continue on your way. It keeps the game fresh all the way through.

On top of that there are a ton of "power-ups" to unlock as you progress as well.

Hours of fantastic gameplay wrapped up in a lovely little package. Definitely check it out if you like the two genres mentioned!

Oh, lastly, I wouldn't call this a "kids" game in any way. It offers some real challenge to even experienced gamers such as myself, but persistence will eventually get you through the game as well if you're skills aren't quite up to snuff.

I originally bought this for my 10 year old god brother. I read the reviews for it on gaming websites (IGN and Gamespot) and they said that this was a pretty good game. Figured the combination of a block matching and action platformer was a good, "simple", and entertaining game for him. When it arrived I (25 years old) tried it out and so did his sister (15 years old). We were both hooked and kept fighting each other for the game cartridge. The poor boy, the person it was originally intended for, was outed for his game. The game play is pretty frantic in that you have insanity happening both on the top and bottom screen.

The good is that the cut scenes, music, and game play is pretty simple and very well executed. Controlling Henry on his escapade is very easy and if you make a mistake in miscalculating a jump or strike it is entirely your fault and not a weird glitch in the game. The enemies are clever, comical, and challenging. The cut scenes with their absolutely ridiculous voice work pays homage to those of Zelda, which means it's more noises than words, with a British twist to it. The puzzle on the bottom screen is simple to master and if you don't clear the dead enemy blocks it isn't heartless enough to end the game so you are given a second chance to get rid of them.

The bad, it is crazy intense. The level of difficulty does ramp up pretty fast leaving you dazed and confused at first because you will have a ton of enemies on the top screen which you must dispatch and due to your dispatching, these enemies need to be cleared from the block puzzle below. Thankfully you are able to upgrade your skills and attributes during the game play to augment your attacks as Henry as well as help with the puzzle world.

I'm a lifelong gamer who particularly enjoys puzzle and adventure games. I've played, loved, and posted reviews for many DS puzzle games. When I saw the ad for this game, I literally rushed right out and bought it. Maybe it's just a question of too-high expectations, but I really wanted to enjoy this game, and I was very disappointed by it.

Hybrid games that combine multiple genres are all the rage now, undoubtedly boosted by the popularity of Puzzle Quest. But I definitely disagree with the earlier reviewer who stated that 2 average games combine to make a good one. No, in this case, 2 below-average games combine to make an average one.

The concept is intriguing. Interweave a 2D side-scrolling platformer with a unique match-three-type puzzle game, where each game plays on its own screen and the progress in each game feeds back into the other. Sounds great! But Henry Hatsworth is no Puzzle Quest. I forced myself to give the game 5 hours to capture my heartstrings, but it never grew on me, and there are plenty of other more interesting games to play.

Henry Hatsworth uses a noteworthy system of gibberish sounds for character voices. It's not just subtitles, and it's not traditional voice acting, it's something in between. Imagine recording a voice actor making a few dozen unusual sounds. None of these recorded sounds are words, but some sound like words. Then, during your video game cutscenes, when your characters are talking, play back those sounds in random order while the subtitles appear on screen. The result is an unintelligible melange of word-like sounds. You might call this form of voice acting "innovative", or a "bold stylistic choice". You might also call it "grating" or "awful".
