I am not a great fan of platform games but this really is fabulous. There are plenty of levels for your money and some tricky puzzles to work out as well as some quick thinking required. The narrative is poignant and touching and adds a little extra darkness to an old format.
The music is also great and really adds to the atmosphere.
The only troubles are that to change powers requires a tap in the top right hand of the screen and this is where you need to press to move on which is a little frustrating. I also found some of the bonus levels very tricky and rather frustrating at times but this has more to do with not being a platform gamer and so not having the appropriate skills.
All in all well worth the money. You don't get many games that marry good play with good music and good controls. And there is so much to do that it keeps you playing for ages. Took me what feels like half my life to complete it! Well done to the developers - a triumph.
This is a game which isn't as well known as I should be. The little character you play as is adorable and throughout the game you develop such a sympathetic bond with it.
Cool, unique gameplay where you must solve puzzles and challenges with your newfound colours, each with their own abilities. You're running from the evil force of the void which you came from.
It's an epic game, reminds me of limbo a bit. If you enjoy puzzlers, you will love this. It's dark, creepy yet enlightening and happy at the same time.
Seriously! Download it. It's amazing! You will not regret it.
Where art meets technology
This game has amazing character. As others have mentioned, the music is lovely, but for me the poetic story that accompanies it is wonderful. It really is like a poem. It begins quite melancholic, with always the hint of a light at the end of the tunnel, a metaphor for the world we live in, I think. The puzzles involved require a lot of deduction, and I often find myself thinking about how to solve them, when I'm not actually playing it. It gets under your skin! We'll worth the money. Genuinely, a work of art!
