    Full Bore is an enjoyable game if you don't mind puzzles that range from simple to difficult within a few minutes of each other.

    Full Bore might appear as a modest project. It's not as embellished in indie cred and hype as Fez or Braid, and the basic idea is so laid-back and silly that it might invite to you to not take it seriously, but that is exactly the game's strength. There is no stress and no exaggerated expectations, and that's why you'll be gently pulled into its mysteries until you can't put it down. Full Bore is a wonderful puzzle platformer that you should not miss.

    Full Bore is a funny game. His opened world allows us to solve the puzzles in random order and the characters are so charismatic that they give a breath of fresh air to the game. If you love the puzzles, you will love Full Bore.

    It tapped into something deep within me — after a few days with the game I started daydreaming in the game's logic. There may be a hundred indie puzzlers that look a bit like it, but Full Bore is in a much weightier class of its own.

    Full Bore's bluesy music is catchy, the animations are equally charming and unsettling, the puzzles are often fun to solve, and there are hints of a good, dark mystery behind the greater plot.

    Some of the puzzle design is solid enough that I could easily have pictured Full Bore working as a more linear game. As it is, it's dull and frustratingly misguided, and there are too many low-budget indie puzzlers in the market for one like this to stand out.

    This game is the epitome of discovery and accomplishment. If you have a strong sense of curiosity and love exploring, this game is for you. IfThis game is the epitome of discovery and accomplishment. If you have a strong sense of curiosity and love exploring, this game is for you. If you don't like exploring for the sake of exploring and require constant directions, then this game may not be the best for you.

    The level design is constantly strong and it is motivating to know for a fact that you can solve every puzzle the moment you see it. The feeling of seeing an unexplored part of a room and making your way over there to discover a hidden doorway is INCREDIBLE.

    The story is brilliantly told through background art and computer terminals hidden throughout the various levels.
    The art and animations are adorable and the music fits the game perfectly.

    The only reason I gave it a 9 is because of the spelling/grammar errors and the fact that, even after completing all the endings, I was left with more questions than answers.

    If you ever played The Swapper or quite a fan of more advanced puzzle-platformers in general then you will definitely like this game. JustIf you ever played The Swapper or quite a fan of more advanced puzzle-platformers in general then you will definitely like this game. Just like mentioned The Swapper, game's puzzle design very consistent and relies on the solid mechanics around different kind of blocks and level geometry rather than some ominous abilities "you will get later". Every puzzle in the game you see you can solve anytime. Well, if you are clever enough, hehe. With time, each new puzzle you encounter teaches you some new mechanics about the block you were sure knew everything already. And the combinations of these blocks can make puzzles quite, quite complex despite the fact there aren't that many of these blocks. And solving hem gives you well-deserved satisfaction. In some cases I'm sure you will feel like a genius.
    But puzzles are just a tip of the iceberg. Game features quite charming animations and lovely graphics accompanied by amazing soundtrack that organically fits game's atmosphere.

    In short, it is one of these awesome and unexpected indie games that happened once or twice per a year.

    Very Interesting and quite challening puzzle platformer. What bothers a bit is the kinda running arouind with no real goal or quests. ButVery Interesting and quite challening puzzle platformer. What bothers a bit is the kinda running arouind with no real goal or quests. But still the atmosphere, the puzzles, the design are really great. Really good game overall, better than most puzzle or even physics platformers. Expand
