    A weird game with an amazing atmosphere and a really long, vast campaign. [CD-Action 03/2013, p.71]

    Very cool game well worth the money asked for it. I wasn't expecting much and had readied myself for another buy not played past the first look but I couldn't. The mix of relaxing atmosphere, vicious but fair platforming challenges and non-violent exploration just captured me and has refused to release me ever since.. I haven't had that much fun prowling tunnels and caverns since Super Metroid (and I can't get more euphoric in terms of comparisons than this!). I you like exploration don't think twice: Get it!

    I really love this game, it's a beautiful platformer with a long interesting campaign. Best check out Knytt (it's free), if you like to play more in that style, then definetly check ount Knytt Underground.
    I really love the secrets and challenges. The main game is not that hard, but some of the hidden challenges where really though to complete!
    Duration is 5-40 Hours, depending how much you like to explore.

    I would love to rate this game higher, but there's a small number of very big flaws marring it.
    The first is simply the writing - not only is
    it awkward to the point sometimes of embarrassment, the tone the dev was clearly aiming for in it could not fit the tone of the game any less.
    Secondly, there's the graphics - again we have a jarring mis-match of tone and feel between the gorgeous, surreal and bleak tiles and backgrounds and the gaudy and amateurish character artwork.

    On the other hand, if you can look past those two criticisms, this is a beautiful, atmospheric game with excellent controls, intriguing mechanics and immersive, sprawling metroidvania level design.

    the game kind of lacks a structure and it looks like a thesis about level design. Individually the elements are correct, but the lack of structure and compeling story makes it boring after a while. Expand
