Gamelion's debut game is furry good.

Furry Legends is the first entry in an episodic series of physics-based puzzle games set in the vibrant and furry world of Furland. You play as a little puffball and your goal is simple: make it to the end of each stage in one piece. It may sound like an easy task, but considering that your character has a ball-like physique, it can bounce all over the place and into hazardous areas. With only a limited amount of lives, Furry Legends proves that you have to be slow and steady like the tortoise in order to win each stage.

Each stage is filled with a variety of obstacles ranging from standard Thwomp-like enemies to pits of lava that will kill you instantly upon contact. Due to the small amount of lives you have, you are going to want to think twice before you make any bold movements. Luckily, there are checkpoints scattered throughout each stage that act as a new starting point for when you die. If you lose all your lives though, it's back to the beginning to the stage.

Furry Legends is an incredibly easy game to learn how to control. Your Furball's movements are executed through the control stick on the Nunchuk, and jumping is performed by pressing the A button. To destroy various obstacles scattered through the game's five different stages, you hold the Z button and shake the Wii Remote, all while aiming using the control stick.

Five stages may not sound like a whole lot for a $10 game but each stage is a decent length. The game can be quite challenging at times, too, making it highly unlikely that you will complete them in your first run. There are various fruits to collect that can boost your Furball's speed, though it is hardly worth the effort to collect these seeing as the game does not keep record of which ones you have collected.

Furry Legends is a great game that is severely plagued by its short length. If Furry Legends was available at a lower price point, then the shortness of the game would not be as big of a concern, but at 1,000 Wii Points ($10), the game's price is a little steep. With that being said, if Furry Legends sounds like something you would enjoy, you'd be wise to give it a try.
