Ms. Particle-Man is a retro-style arcade game. The goal is simple: Discover the Higgs boson! Play as Ms. Particle-Man in her search for the Higgs across three different collider worlds. Each collider ends with a showdown against an elementary particle. Collide with each boss to discover new worlds, abilities, and eventually possibly even the Higgs boson itself.

Impossibly Difficult, Impossibly Fun
This game took me many months of playing to finally beat, but I did it. It is the single hardest video game I have ever played, but I love it. Particle physics is one of my favorite fields of science and so I happened to stumble upon this one day and I have been addicted ever since. With the sequel coming out later this month, this is definitely a game to add to your collection.
Brutal in all the right ways
Ms. Particle-Man is a cruel mistress. She doesn't like you. She delights in your failures as a player. How refreshing. I'm addicted to Ms. Particle-Man. I could've died at least twice in the time it took to write this review. Five stars. I'd give it six if I could just for the concept alone. It's the 2600 game that never was.
One fatal flaw
This game has pretty neat gameplay and level design, but it is way. Too. Hard. I have never gotten past the third world. There's no save feature, so you keep having to play the same levels over and over again. Gets tiring and stops being fun.
