Speaking about Woodways visuals has a fairy simple but cartoonish aesthetic, which adds personality and life to the game. Everything is rendered in 2D as well, but carries a pseudo-3D look due to its top-down and shadows properties. Game takes place across several different environments, from lush woodlands to frozen tundras to sandy beaches. The textures for each setting are subtle, but enough to tell each area apart from each other. The color palette has a good mix of vibrant and bright hues to more muted, earthy tones so it all ends up being a rather nice visual package. The game soundtrack is rather cheerful and whimsical, overall its a great package.
