The pixel art is charming, but may be simplistic for some, the incredible chip-tunes are like audio cocaine, but may sound too retro for some.
But the tight, tough gameplay is relevant to all who like elegent, challenging gaming.
It is only about £3 on Steam, and i loved every second of it. It's something like braid or portal in that it takes a narrow set of rules and completely exploites them in unimaginable ways, in situations that never repeat. The confidence with which it throws new scenarios at the player, then discards them casually, is almost Mario Galaxy-esque.
Anyone else played this gem?
Here's a tune to persuade you to:

I haven't played the 3DS version for a few years and I'm surprised at how much I've forgotton about the game. Normally I'd get frustrated by the "constant deaths", but in this game it just seems to drive me on. I've just completed The Tower level and rescued Vermillion, so I have some "two-player" levels to get through now. They're great, although I've just got to a really tough bit that I've died on quite a few times, so that's it for tonight.
Such a cool game. As I mentioned before, this PS4 version seems to be the most basic of ports... but when it remains this much fun I don't really mind.
