The game puts you in the shoes of one of two boar adventurers: Frederick ("He's a boar!") and Hildi ("She's a boar too!"). Frolicking in a field chasing butterflies quickly turns into a heck of an adventure as the ground is blown up and you fall into a crazy deep cavern. Here you'll learn the main controls and get your first gem before finding a rocket and climbing inside.
Block puzzles are the name of the game with Full Bore and there's no shortage of them! You'll be running across sand that breaks apart quickly as you stand on it, movable blocks, lasers and the batteries that power them... Some you can dig through, some you can't; some are affected by gravity while others remain where they were; some can be destroyed from a short distance with ground pounds; some you can drop down through. The game stays fresh the entire time, and if you're ever truly, completely stumped going after a gem you can skip it temporarily and come back for it. This was incredibly helpful for me as I even had to watch videos on youtube to see how some of the puzzles were solved!
