Lil Gator Game is such a fun and relaxing adventure game that reminds me of “A Short Hike” but I enjoy this one even more. It has no missable achievements. Small tip: Start destroying the decor from the start.

Lil Gator Game is such an awesome game. You play as this kid, which wants to play a video game but then in real life. He did this all the time with his big sister, but then she got busy and they didn’t do this anymore. He misses that and wants to try to convince his sister to join in again. Will he succeed?

You really feel like a kid in a playground! Extra adorable is that you can use the things in the playground like the slides or the seesaw. The game looks adorable and cute, it is just amazing. It mocks video games from time to time but in a good way and not all the time gladly.

This game reminds me so much of “A Short Hike”, which is a good thing. there aren’t enough games like this on the market. You’ll go on so many short quests in this game and will make so many friends on your way, which is cool as they all will come to hang out in the playground when you finished their quest. Even this big whale will move very close to the playground. It feels very rewarding to see the playground get busier more and more the more you complete the game.

None of the achievements are missable. which is amazing, as far as I understood is that this is a thing the devs wanted to make sure would be the case and I just love them for that. no worries about the achievements while playing through it and afterward you can mop up the things you missed. However, I would highly recommend destroying every paper decor you see, as that would cleaning up afterward not as much work as it would be otherwise. You will get items to help you out finding the missing decors after finishing the main story, but it is just so much easier to destroy them when you see them the first time.

I rate this game’s difficulty 2/10 instead of 1 because of the races, they can be a bit challenging, but nothing is too hard. For one of them, you need to use a specific item to be able to make it in time 😉
