    As you might expect, continual death loops start to chip away at your initial fondness for Intrinsic's stylish attempt, and once you get snagged on a particular problem, the temptation to part ways grows strong.

    I like the overall concept here and the puzzling challenge of keeping track of two characters at once puts a unique spin on what would otherwise be pretty basic platforming, so Divergent Shift gets a thumbs-up.
  3. Divergent Shift might have been a more refreshing experience had it been released before Chronos Twins hit the service, but as it is, the game ends up feeling like nothing more than a more expensive and slightly less fulfilling clone.
  4. If you're satisfied with a short and sweet puzzle platformer for under $10, then Divergent Shift is right in your wheelhouse.

    A good platformer that's far too short and far too expensive for what it offers. [Feb 2011, p.95]
  6. Divergent Shift is everything a DSiWare title can be: an original, simple, but deep game that uses the hardware toward a meaningful end.
