    With the old style platform gameplay, 2D pixellated graphics and some cool retro 8-bit style music (thrown in with some other cool looping tunes), Platformines feels like it should have been released decades ago. But the game is definitely a huge amount of fun to play.

    A complex world to explore, packed with enemies and traps. The game design is consistent and controls work great here. But it gets tiring after few hours and it lacks true inspiration. Nevertheless it's an enjoyable ride.

    This game has not received too much attention, but the mix of ideas put into it does deserve it. We recommend to at least try it, since it has a demo available.

    Platformines is a valid cross line between 2D platform and 2D shooter with a retro 16 bit look and sound and with all the advantages and limitations that it entails. The gameplay is fun, the difficulty level is on the high standards and longevity is remarkable, but as hours pass the repetition grows too.

    Platformines is a simple, clever and fun action game: you'll be lost in space for a very long time, but beware, sometimes it can be harsh and punishing. With its resemblance to Bordelands (loot), Spelunky (random generated area), Magiko Gaming does the right thing.
