    A candidate for indie game of the year as far as I’m concerned. Many awards were already given and they were absolutely deserved. It barely has a flaw and money-wise it’s worth it. Fantastic atmosphere and well-thought out puzzles will entice anyone with a brain. Unfortunately only a demo on Xbox Live is available, but don’t worry, just go ahead and buy this.
  2. It's a Masterpiece in my eyes and I rarely use that term.
  3. Essential for those who likes a sit down and have a think. [Aug 2010, p.82]
  4. The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom is a stylish farce. Its sheer originality and incredibly low price are enough to overlook clumsy gameplay balance and poor code optimization.
  5. It's very much in the head-hurting, time-bending, Braid vein. [July 2010, p.101]
  6. The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom is clever, simple, hard and very good to train our brains to solve problems.
  7. Still, for a title which is worth less than five Euros, the Misadventures of P.B Winterbottom are recommended to any indie-loving player.
  8. Devilishly tricky. [July 2010, p.95]
  9. A really good combination of retro charm and puzzle fan for an absolutely cheap prize. Puzzle fans must definitely take a look at this game.
  10. Buckets of whimsy and oodles of puzzles make this a satisfying adventure, despite the sometimes steep difficulty.
  11. Stylish logical game will remind you the times of DOS logical puzzle games. Your girlfriend will love it as well as you mother or uncle or even your grandpa. [Issue#191]
  12. Gorgeous presentation and clever level design are only held back by mild control issues. [July 2010, p.61]

    Is creepy if you want, but is an amazing game that will make you think a lot with its puzzles, and also enjoy with its simplicity. I mean, Winterbottom is a fellow who loves pie, and is willing to do everything for a pie even if this "everything" is create a paradox in time-space stability.
    With a touch of madness I think that this Misadvetures will take you to another universe of gaming

    Very nice! Reminds me of Braid but simpler and more logical. Therefore, less of a challenge in making perfect moves on every levels - which made me stopped playing Braid - but rather think differently using 4th dimension. Always with a last second little twist you didn't see coming when you kick off!
    Very nice music too. Vintage style.

    Un juego de puzzles bastante entretenido, visualmente bien logrado, entretenida música. Los acertijos están muy buenos , llegando a ser muy difíciles algunos.

    Cumple su objetivo.
