This game could be seen as the [=PS2=]'s [[AlternateCompanyEquivalent answer to]] ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' (as well as taking a few cues from ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'') -- what with the strong emphasis on Collect-a-Thon, run and jump platforming, bright and lively art, endearing characters, and fun levels and puzzles.

* WeirdCurrency: Precursor Orbs. Especially due to their shape.
