    The designers had a clear vision for this game, and they made sure it came into fruition.

    Nimbus is a delightful mix of racing for the perfect time and brain-twisting puzzles. This is a excellent game for those who love the feeling of becoming really good at something that is challenging, but never unfair.

    It's tricky and exacting, but in all the right ways.

Its kindof hard to explain what Nimbus really is since its so original, its in a sence a puzzle game that isnt your typical "chess" "checkers" "move this block here" type thing its all about flying your little "shuttle" that doesnt have any engines to reach the goal based on physics in a 2d sidescroller if that makes any sence, id suggest a gameplay vid or demo to try it out. The price of Nimbus on steam is more than reasonable, the gameplay is awsome, addicting, and fun. Nimbus soundtrack fits the game so well, i cant wait for Nimbus 2 if there ever is one, solid 10 for me :) Full Review »

Yet it feels like a port from a phone, and unfortunately with not as good an implementation in PC controls as i would wish for. I guess this game is pretty fun (yet pointless) on a tablet, or on a touch screen. Not on the computer. I used both keyboard and a controller and just could not get into it. For example, there is an inconsistency in direction, which bugs the crap out of me - so when you push the stick on the controller to the right, the ship will spin, let's say clockwise, then bounce against something, and switch to turning clockwise while you still are pushing the controller stick to the right.

    Otherwise, the game is not original or unique as i have seen others claim - it's a phone game, and there is a ton of those out there.

    I don't recommend unless you are fine with giving it up after an hour of play.

    "Nimbus" is a well-polished and funny game about puzzles and racing among puzzles and solving puzzles whilst racing... just play it. You will like it.
