Have you ever looked into a mirror carefully? How do you know whether the person looking at you from the other side is yourself or someone else inside the mirror?

Let me introduce you one of the greatest indie game, 'RETSNOM' created by solo developer Somi and published by Magic Cube.

Storyline

You have a daughter. She is unfortunately infected by a zombie virus. The only way to save your daughter is to visit the laboratory in the future and steal the medicine that is expected to be made by your colleagues. But the future research team is hiding in the maze using mirrors. They decorated the maze using features of a mirror in each level.

Features

- Inventive puzzle platformer that allows players to break the map, by mirroring sections of the level, and rearranging it on the fly
- Unique puzzles using the features of a mirrors and various mechanics
- 61 levels in 5 different worlds, 3 hidden stages and collectable bonus items
- 17 Achievements
- Narratives of time-travel paradoxes and another world in the mirror with 2 different endings
- Deep sad story and hauntingly beautiful soundtrack
- Stunning retro pixel art style

Reviews

"Una bonita sorpresa que además llega a un precio más que reducido. Solo hay que probar Retsnom para saber que es diferente y merece la pena..." 8/10 IGN Spain

"RETSNOM est une perle sombre qui nous arrive droit d'Orient. Ne vous laissez pas tromper par son aspect "encore un autre platformer indépendant pixelisé". Il est riche, intéressant, exigeant, et en plus n'est pas très cher, que demander de plus ?" 9/10 OGaming TV

"RETSNOM is a brilliant puzzle game that will have you thinking hard about what to do next." 8/10 GameSkinny

Spent about 10 minutes writing something up, but it never went through. Screw it. :/

This is rather excellent. I'm getting Snakebird vibes from the complexity and I haven't even finished the first level. In fact, the game shows I've played a total of 10 minutes (which were all trying to grab a collectible! ). I dig this a lot and can't wait to spend more time with it. Don't think I've played anything that allows you to completely screw with level layouts before. The port's excellent too (yes, it was originally a PC game) with super solid controls. Great job by Magic Cube. 264 MBs installed on iPhone SE, btw.

Monster in reverse. Mirrors seem to play a large role in the puzzles here. Put Monster in front of a mirror...
