    Nihilumbra is a clever and fascinating puzzle platformer that succeeds in providing a unique mobile experience. Unfortunately it's slightly spoiled by several ups and downs and a really bad difficulty curve.

    Clever puzzles, immersive presentation, and an intriguing plot combine in one of the most ambitious and original smartphone games of the year.

    First off this gorgeous,unique and engrossing game is one of my own personal Top 3 games of this year so far along with Gene Effect andFirst off this gorgeous,unique and engrossing game is one of my own personal Top 3 games of this year so far along with Gene Effect and Project 83113.

    You really don't need my verdict after that do you? You should already be rushing to hit that download button already if you trust my judgement that is ;) Oh ok i'll humour you again then.

    An epic and eerie journey of a game with a story that is told in a really cool and unique way which compliments the actual game greatly.

    This game will pull you in and not let you go and you will certainly get lost in the experience especially when you have your headphones in to listen to the epic soundtrack.

    One game,which if you found as great an experience that i did,will have you not putting it down.

    Must own in my opinion and you can thank me later for pointing you in the right direction.
