Yumi's Odd Odyssey's controls are simple to learn but tricky to master, and the levels are very unforgiving of mistakes and don't leave much room for experimentation. If you misjudge a jump or otherwise cause Yumi's demise, you'll have to restart the level from the very beginning. Argh! The game also keeps a tally of how many times you've failed the level, which is the opposite of motivating. Yumi's Odd Odyssey is for serious platform game fans who don't mind a hefty challenge.
