    A new kind of platforming, which can turn into a bit hit like Portal. [Feb 2013]

    It's shame this game doesn't have any more acclaim than what it has. Games with absolutely unique mechanics are hard to come by and I'm glad I accidentally ran into this one. It's absolutely mindblowing. It's up there with portal in terms of originality. Expand

    From the students at DigiPen comes a puzzle-platformer with a twist. Playing the game from a 1st person perspective, you must line up the blue grids to guide your 2d avatar through each level to the awaiting goal. A simple but great premise with awesome execution.
    However, the game has a knack for freezing, and not just freezing randomly. It can -and oft will- freeze when you complete a checkpoint, forcing you to do the arcade segments over and (sometimes) over. If you don't grow tired of it and rage quit in the meantime, there is a game with a lot of meat in between.
    Perspective is an old school romp with a new spin, and can be tons of fun if you overlook its sometimes glaring bug. Really wished I could have given it a higher score, but it has a huge technical scar on an otherwise pretty much flawless game.
    But, hey, the price is just right!
