    While the art style is a visual treat and Kurt's powers beautifully unique, the difficulty curve is brutally unforgiving. [Jan 2013, p.81]
  2. In this puzzle/platformer you step into the shoes of Kurt, a small boy stranded on an alien planet with just one desire: getting home. Easier said than done, because Pid can be a very tough nut to crack at times. [December 2012, p.93]

    Pid has some truly amazing moments, but they are let down by difficulty spikes and lacklustre controls. The sections where the art style, level design, music, and gameplay slot together are fabulous, and it's worth playing the adventure to experience them for yourself – but don't expect the title to hold your attention like a burst of anti-gravitational light.
  4. The alluring design of the world and excellent soundtrack undoubtedly elevate matters. [Jan 2013, p.113]
