This first part of the Katy and Bob series (which is released a few days later on steam than the second installment) is a bit harder than “Katy and Bob: Safari Cafe”. That title had easy achievements, not really hard. This one challenges you to get every task and expert score on every level. I would highly suggest to first play through the game and try your best to get to that score and those tasks, but going back later. That way, you will have all the artifacts, which makes it a little bit easier. Level 39, where you have to get a score of 5500, gave me the most problems; all the others that I missed on the first try I got on the second or third try. I don’t know if others have this as well, but for me, the game was easier when I turned off the music of the game or listened to my own music. I can’t explain why, but maybe it helps others too…
This game has a few problems, like when you choose “replay” while in a level there is a 90% chance the game will crash. The fullscreen mode gave me weird graphics: I turned that off before starting to play this game. The scariest bug was when I finally got to that score of 5500 on level 39, the last task I needed for 100%… The game crashed when the level ended! I was afraid I would have to do it again, but the game picked up that I got the last task and gave me my last 2 missing achievements. I wish they would fix those bugs, but the game is from 2012 (came later to Steam), so I don’t have high hopes for those fixes. Luckily they are not game-breaking bugs.
