Description

At first, when this game was recommended to me by a friend, I was sceptical, an indie platformer made by one person, you can expect anything out of it, right?
But considering that the price seemed pretty fair I decided to give it a shot, and oh boy, was I not disappointed.
To describe the game in a couple of words, I would say that it combines the aesthetics of Super Meat Boy and Limbo with a tough but fair gameplay akin to I Wanna Be The Guy or VVVVVV. Or it least it seemed so to me as to a person who is not really that 'hardcore' into platformers, at times I felt like I'm going to have my 'gamer license' revoked for being stuck at particular segments for too long, but nontheless the difficulty seemed to be consistent and challenging all the way through.
And the graphics are extremely well done, just look at those dynamic backgrounds and you'd know what I'm talking about. Of course this is not Ori or something, but considering that this is a single developer game, it definitely deserves respect for being such high quality as it is.
There is also one of the gameplay mechanics that I found to be really intriguing and I feel like I should mention in my review. The gameplay on the controller and the gameplay on the keyboard and mouse are not the same. It may seem wild and at first I even thought it was a bug, but believe me or not the game is beatable on both 'gameplay modes'. There were few exceptions where I felt that I need to use a mouse while playing on a controller, and vice versa, but these moments were rare and probably are beatable with conventional methods for someone more experienced in these type of games. A very bold decision on developers side that surprisingly works much better than expected.
All and all the game took me about 4 hours which is again quite fair for its price.
On the negative side I can only mention that the translation is rough sometimes, but for a gameplay based game this is pretty much just a minor nitpick for an overall solid game.
As a final verdict, considering my general support for such personal, one developer, projects, and the overall quality/price ratio of this game my score would be - a strong 8.75/10.
If you are browsing through St3@m in search of some quality indie platformers, this is definitely the one to get.
