There are five different worlds and lots of levels to explore. Once completed, each level can be repeated to take on a time-trial race against your previous times. There are collectables such as gold butterflies (coins) and babies, as well as a special award for completing the level without dying once.
As you progress you meet and recruit characters to join you. Each of the ten different additions to your group offer specific abilities, from a ground stomp to get through barriers to being able to open up flowers to access new areas and platforms.
With hazardous objects and hard to reach platforms, Shu takes inspiration from Donkey Kong Country and Rayman games. However, Shu adds a unique storyline and the team-up-with-characters ability that makes it an interesting game in its own right.

Rated for younger players in the US. ESRB EVERYONE for Mild Fantasy Violence.
8+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. This is a fast paced platform game that requires quick button presses to jump and glide around the world. You also need some light puzzle solving. Many of the levels put you under pressure and require a quick response to survive.
