    A great, merciless speedrunning platformer and twitch shooter with a mediocre presentation.

    As difficult and repetitious as Lovely Planet gets however, rarely is it frustrating. It’s hard to hold a grudge against a game so whimsical, especially when it delivers even the most nefarious of its tricks with such stone-faced innocence.

    Lovely Planet is pure FPS madness: don't let the cartoon look deceive you, because this game requires skills and dedication.

    Those who want to use speedruns as a demonstration of their twitch skills will likely find Lovely Planet a 50-hour obsession. Nobody else really need apply.

    Lovely Planet wants to hammer home that it is sweet, crazy and colorful. But unfortunately, this is all just a facade. Underneath it's a superficial shooter that offers little variety and I can always shoot down the same boring tube passages.

    There’s a lot to enjoy in Lovely Planet, so long as you don’t actually have to play the game.

    I could spend hours playing it, and listening to the incredible soundtrack and shooting at red squares and just having fun.

    Fast, Fun and Amazing. 3 words I could use to describe it. I enjoyed every second I spent with this game I wish It never had to end. TheFast, Fun and Amazing. 3 words I could use to describe it. I enjoyed every second I spent with this game I wish It never had to end. The amazing soundtrack and world design were creatively memorizing and the fast paced shooter gameplay blends right in! Worth the 6 dollars easily Expand

    Simple mechanics with enough to wrap your mind around - like discovering new ways to shave milliseconds off your best times and climbingSimple mechanics with enough to wrap your mind around - like discovering new ways to shave milliseconds off your best times and climbing leader-boards - to make you not want to stop playing. The game lets you discover what the best way to beat a level is. And once you've found what works, perfecting the execution of your strategy is hella-fun! The visuals and music are obviously orgasm inducing - don't really need to go into much depth there. Buy it! You'll thank me. Expand

    Don't be fooled by the cute Katamari-esque style, this rapidly becomes a tough-as-nails twitch shooter that requires rote memorization, quickDon't be fooled by the cute Katamari-esque style, this rapidly becomes a tough-as-nails twitch shooter that requires rote memorization, quick reflexes, multiple retries and excellent aim. Most of the negative critic reviews are because of exactly this: it's too hard after the first world, especially if you take the style at face value and think it's a casual game. But if you like twitch shooters and/or failure meatgrinders like Super Meat Boy you will probably love this. That goes double if you are competitive or into speedrunning, as there are integrated leaderboards, even showing whether you got perfect accuracy on the level or not. Expand

    My first impression was: I was playing Katamari Damacy again. Strange scenery, strange (and funny) musics and strange characters.
    It's not

    It's not the most original game ever, but it's not only one more shooter to kill zombies and get in a safe place. Now it's kill bad red guys to get in a safe purple cane in a totally strange world with dark blue innocent guys.
    I think, it's good for pass the time, enjoy a calm music and get out with the same old zombie/war shooter games.
