It doesn’t matter if I failed 531 other times. For a few seconds, I was an invincible destroyer of games.” - indiegamerchick.com “The coolest things here, however, are the little black and white cubes that, when touched, alter the level.” - 1uporpoison.com “Seems pretty simple, right?

So I've just finished the game, and although I died an absolute **** load of times, it was great fun!
I've played both Bit.Trip Runner and The Impossible Game, and whilst this game may look like it's inspired by the former, it actually felt like I was playing a much more varied version of the latter. The frequent checkpoints also make this game more forgiving than The Impossible Game.
The 5 abilites that you learn throughout the game are varied (jump, slide, block, leap and sprint) and build up the difficulty well until you're eventually using them all together in certain levels which can be very difficult. The game doesn't feel unfair though, and I knew that everytime I died it was MY fault!
The smaller rotating cubes that you can grab are a very nice unique feature that changes the level. White cubes do something good and black cubes do something bad (but still survivable). I'll certainly be playing this game again to get more of the awards.
The background music is great to listen to, and the colour changes and music bars in the background are a nice little touch as well.
I also seem to be currently #1 on the leaderboard, so try and beat me, yeah? Good luck!
