Reviewer's comments

"As many of you know, I don't like to have to think a lot while I'm playing a custom level. I'm quite comfortable knowing exactly what to do and where to go (courtesy of a walkthrough) while I'm enjoying the visual amenities provided by the builder. At no time is this strategy more rewarding than at Easter season, when the raiding community is treated to colorful, quaint and offbeat entertainment with few if any enemies or hazards to spoil the peaceful bliss. Judging from Dutchy's walkthrough, however, you can finish this level prematurely and miss out on a substantial amount of gameplay if you don't detour for the secrets. The key is a jumpswitch that I would not have known to look for, let alone found, had it not been for the walkthrough (ample vindication for my playing philosophy noted earlier). Now that I'm catching up with levels missed due to that marathon writing project for Templars' Treasures, I couldn't have picked one more enjoyable." - Phil (07-May-2020)

"What an utterly charming Easter level this is. The town is colourful and delightful, the birds are singing and there are lots of fun rabbit references about the place. Gameplay is, of course, peaceful and not taxing, but there are nice puzzles to solve and quirky interaction with the town’s residents. For anyone who needs cheering up in this difficult time, this is a great little pick me up." - Jay (02-May-2020)

"The builder never ceases to provide nicely festive Easter levels and this is no exception. The Easter bunny characters are so cute and the bright and colourful settings are nicely done. The gameplay is varied but not always quite intense - some sections like the upper parts of Easter Bunny's house are a bit boring - but the letter and table puzzles are better. I deducted one point in the first category though because when you save/reload in the luggage room you cannot get out because of an invisible block in front of the door. I also noticed a paper thin wall in an actually pointless crawlspace and some shadows seem a bit weird and unrealistic. The secret quest at the end was a nice addition and with the lovely final cutscene I ended up with overall positive feelings about this level after 25 minutes." - manarch2 (01-May-2020)

"That was utterly complicated in a couple of instances. Still, I did enjoy this little level and I'll pretend we can all travel right now as the Bunny did. I never got to use the scarab (or whatever, because I only found the winding key) in spite of having raised the platform and jumped to the ledge where I think I was supposed to make it work. It's a peaceful Easter present and I liked it more than chocolates though. Thanks, Greywolf." - Jorge22 (17-Apr-2020)

"This is an utterly sweet level for the Easter season. The main town area with its various multicoloured houses and cute bunny characters is so charmingly crafted, the object placement is brilliant and the extended secret quest a nice touch. The gameplay isn't without its moments either, with a neat word/lever puzzle, a table puzzle and some enjoyable gymnastics in the boiler room. Maybe there was a tad too much backtracking, but not to the extent that it gets annoying. The final cutscene is quite rewarding and rounds off this 45 minute level. Really nicely done." - Ryan (15-Apr-2020)

"Very pleasant Easter level. The general town looks very cute and colorful, which made it a nice atmosphere. But in addition to the town itself, there are other locations such as a train station or cafe. The sounds themselves are relaxing (although not so much in the basement). There are also very interesting and ingenious puzzles here. There are no enemies, which means there is no weapon. The whole level is very nicely textured and illuminated (except the basement which was a bit monotonous). There were also many different objects, which diversified the game. Regarding the secrets, they were really ingenious and quite well hidden. In a word, I recommend. Thanks." - BlackWolfTR (14-Apr-2020)

"Here we have cryptography, easter eggs, and of course many bunnies. The puzzles are the bulk of the gameplay and I quite enjoyed them. The level is also quite atmospheric. A short and sweet Easter entry to lighten the mood. 35 minutes." - JesseG (13-Apr-2020)
