I like the art style but is the gameplay actually good/polished? It looks like something I'd like.

99c, universal, no IAPs, 3 pages of people only praising it. Is there any doubt about it?

The controls are as good as controls on touchscreen can be.

File size is 106MB when installed.

Limbo with a little bit of Lemmings.

I don't normally go for games like this, but after reading so many favourable things in this thread about this game, I decided to take the plunge. Something tells me that I made a very wise decision to do so.

Normally I'd totally agree with you, but it's not about the price for me - it's the genre. I absolutely love Limbo, Rico, Frogatto, Icycle and plenty of others. At the same time, I found nothing to enjoy in some other very well-received platformers that have been recommended in their respective forums. My backlog is ridiculous so I just like making sure something is my cup if tea before I dive in.

Cheers for the comparison Nobunaga, Limbo is a very flattering game to be compared to so I'll have to get it!

Posted this on the review, but wanted more to see. Basic gist, great puzzle game you can't go wrong for $.99.

I'm sorry... Reading the review it feels like Chris didn't understand the game or ... I just don't know what.

First, this is NOT an action platformer, it is a puzzle game more than action. Mario is an action platformer, this is not even close.

Second, he states some puzzles took him 30 minutes? The entire game, all 150 stages, can be done in 250 minutes or less as there was an achievement for it. I can't recall one taking me over 10 and that's when I didn't know what the trick was. Once I did, more like 5 and those were rare.

Is the game repetitive? It's like saying solving crosswords is repetitive. Sure you do the same things over and over, sometimes the words are easy to find as is the solution to the puzzle. Then you get one that stumps you, like any puzzle should. Those are the great moments.

There is no twitch jumping, an army of enemies to defeat, it is a puzzle platformer, but a puzzle game foremost. The platforming is just another aspect of the puzzle.

Yes, I have heard over and over about the TA reviews are based on that persons ability to recommended a game. A $.99 with a bare minimum of 4 hours of game play that was a full title of $20 on the Vita, I don't understand how you couldn't recommended this to any puzzle game fan. Only way this makes sense is if the review was "phoned in" as they say or Chris does not like puzzle games. Either way, I won't be able to trust his opinion on games sadly as I do so many reviewers on TA. If you are a puzzle game fan, 5/5. People want console quality games on mobile, and this is a great one that is easily worth the original $20.
