The spoilers amount to "how to play an exploration puzzle platformer." If you haven't played one of these sorts yet, there are some things folks who have played older games with a similar feel already know that can cut down on perceived frustration. If you don't mind being frustrated, and want to learn some of this on your own, stop now.
Stylishly done puzzle platformer with an old school Metroid exploration feel. Bit of brain twisting. You don't get your hand held throughout, which can lead to frustration if you come up against a room that can't be solved yet with your current abilities. Just know there are some spots where you will have to take the long way around or come back to after getting another upgrade. Other spots just need creative platforming skills with your current abilities. Others you really have to figure out where you have to be hitting with a miss or two before you get it right. A veteran of puzzle platformers may hit 100% in 2 or 4 hours with a ton of luck finding the secret rooms, but it's a game that can inspire that zen zone where everything clicks that so few games can reach. 8.9/10
One of the better indie platformers I've played in the last years, though its minimalistic graphics would tell you otherwise. It also becomes very hard in a few stages, but it keeps on giving you surprises and some nice storytelling. Stylish and fun, I recommend it.
I have not completed this game, but I would like to say it is extremely fun and the desgin is awesome. It's beautiful to look at and the sound design is nice. The only complaint I have about the sound is that one of the enemies (don't know if they have names or not) is extremely noisy and somewhat overpowers all the other sounds in the game. I highly reccommend this game and am hoping to complete it sometime!
For $4.99, the developer offers a unique, clever, puzzle experience. If the user beats the game once, it feels completely normal and equally enjoyable as the first time to come back and beat the game again in a few weeks. I just wish the experience was longer.
