    Snapshot, from developers at Retro Affect, really impressed me. I have spent over 11 hours on the game and still feel like I have not seen anywhere near all this game has to offer. The visuals are crisp, and fill the screen with a nice 2-D colorful environment. At a $9.99 price tag ($8.99 if you purchase it on steam this week!) its really hard to go wrong here. The music is phenomenal (beware of how catchy and addictive the main theme song is). The sound is also great. The game, like many puzzle-based games, continues to challenge the gamer. Snapshot really, really does this well. Starting off feels very easy, but just you wait. It demands open-minded thinking from the gamer and it really wants you to use every resource at your disposal to beat the more advanced levels. Simply put, Snapshot is a great game. One that deserves both your time and money. Hearing that this game offers 20+ hours of gameplay makes it all the better. Go get this game. You will not regret it! Expand

    This game was totally amazing. Not only did the puzzles really get me to scratch my head (and gave me great delight when I solved them) - the beautiful graphics and flawless soundtrack made it a complete pleasure to play. It has a great deal of replay value and at the price I bought it ($12.99 which included the soundtrack) it was worth every bit of my money. The soundtrack came with extra songs on it that were not included in the game and is very high quality. Overall, this game is wickedly fun and stunningly crafted. Collapse

    A remarkably well-created, imaginative and unique game - it combines the arcade feel of an early platformer with artistic elements and smooth physics engines. The snapshot system that provides the crux for the puzzles could have gone disastrously wrong, but superb execution made sure this wasn't the case. What I especially like is how all the puzzles have a friendly nature and first-appearance easiness in difficulty to appeal to casual gamers, while those seeking a challenge can aim to complete time trials and find the hidden items of each level. All in all, it's worth every penny - it'll have you hooked and beaming at its own ingenuity. Expand

    Snapshot is a charming, challenging platformer with innovative puzzles and a generous helping of good ideas. [Holiday 2012, p.72]

    Ingenious and surprisingly original platformer shows that there are still ways to improve and refresh this genre. [Oct 2012]

    Snapshot is not a title where you can sit down and expect to strap yourself in for an instant gratifying haul.
