A good solid platformer with charming pixel graphics. Rico has 4 difficulty levels to accommodate all levels of skill, and built in key-mapping for controllers. A variety of upgrades to use keeps the levels fresh. Rico isn't very long, but I consider it worth picking up.

Just the platformer I needed. Well balanced, fine tuned, classic feel. Great graphics and "physics". Definitely going to purchase the game and play trough it more than once. Thank you, dev.

Excellent platformer, it has the best level design i have seen in ages, and generally everything about it is very well done from the visuals and the story to the controls and the challenge.
Very polished game.

A higher resolution would have been nice, other than that its just a perfect platformer.

Omg, its hard for real! that bosses will not be beaten from first try!
Overall, great experience, interesting plot, and challenge.
Lacking variety of music, through.

While I haven't yet had time to beat it, what I have seen so far is a delightful little retro platformer.

The graphics feel polished and satisfying despite their simplistic style, the animations are well chosen and satisfying, the sound effects feel good, the controls are smooth and responsive, new mechanics keep getting introduced as you play along (and, unlike in Braid, you're actually given time to savor them), and the music is catchy.

The pause between reaching the end of the level and diamond-wiping to the next one could be reduced a bit and the music can get a bit repetitive, given that there are only two tracks, but those are both excusable, given that it's still in alpha. (Heck, aside from the lack of content, this feels more mature than a lot of beta releases I've played.)

I'll give it a 9.0 out of 10 for now and adjust my rating (if necessary) as I play through further. (I'm saving a 0.5 for more music and another 0.5 because so many really nice little retro games could be so much more with a level editor. For example, Alter Ego.)
