The greatest strength of CreaVures is its distinct black-light art style. All of the pastel colors radiate against the black backdrops.The cutesy animations help add character to already super saccharine creatures and the overall appeal is undeniably charming. As I said earlier though, the issue with CreaVures is the unengaging gameplay, not the aesthetic (although the canned animations can be rough around the edges at times.)
For instance, the sound effects often don't play properly or get cut short during the playback. In any other game, these sorts of issues would be irrelevant, but in CreaVures, the only method of communicating the creatures' (sorry. CreaVures) actions is through their grunts and growls. It becomes more of a non-issue the further you play because the soothing music tends to wash over you while you navigate the CreaVures around the neon forest. The look and feel of CreaVures most definitely captures the heart of being an indie game, but it doesn't go far enough to cover up the sub-par platforming.
