A young boy named Kurt finds himself stranded on a peculiar planet, and he must find his way home. Finding help from unlikely allies and the curious tools in his backpack, Kurt must use gravity-defying beams to conquer every platform and solve every puzzle on this strange journey.
This game is pure art. A beautiful platform, with tricky puzzles (that never make it frustrating, by the way), and a super cool graphic style. Hardcore players will found a real challenge in discovering the "souvenirs", that are some secret items very well hidden.
The longevity is good (it's about 8-9 hours, without counting the difficulty mode that it'll be unlocked).
The story is interesting, and it's narrated in a good way.
Pis is a good game no doubt about it. It suffers from the old flaw of knowing what you have to do but constantly failing to do it because of the controls or the timing required or what ever. This means you may have to retry certain sections upwards of a dozen times. Luckily, there's no shortage of checkpoints. Still, it must be said that this is one title which can lead to frustration.
Pid is a wonderful game. No question about it. It has an amazing soundtrack, gorgeous graphics and challenging gamplay. So challenging, in fact, that the developers put in an easy mode you can activate mid-level if it gets a bit too much.
The gameplay is fluent, and it has a very good learning curve. In the end, you are able to navigate the levels using your tools of the trade as if they were an extention of yourself - or Kurt, the protagonist.
The story is engaging and amazing, and it will take you from the deepest dungeons into space and beyond. Pid is definitely a must-have for the puzzle platformer fanatic, and while I don't give a 10 to many games, this one is perfect for its genre.
