  • Summary: 'Ethan: Meteor Hunter' is a single-player genre mixing game that blends the very best of platform- and puzzle-gaming. The game features Ethan, a rat with an attitude, who was hit on the head by a meteorite giving him supernatural powers! You, yes you, must guide our rodent hero through 50 levels of challenging fun across 3 unique worlds. Getting struck by space trash does have its advantages! For example, our hero has the power of telekinesis and the ability to freeze time, enabling him to move objects around while the world is on hold; a truly unique feature you will need to overcome a number of difficult puzzles and obstacles.

    With its themed levels, expressive art style, addictive gameplay, realistic physics, awesome graphics, mind-bending puzzles, and multiple ways of completing the game, 'Ethan: Meteor Hunter' will quickly immerse you in its enthralling world!

    Ethan: Meteor Hunter is a deep and extremely challenging game. At times it gets too challenging, though, and it lacks the personality needed to emerge in a crowded genre.

    There's a solid base behind this game, but the controls are not precise enough, and the artistic side of the game is way too generic to make it more appealing. Still, the PS Vita version is the best out there, thanks to the mix of physical controls and touchscreen.

    Unwieldy and unfocused, there's a good game struggling to emerge from the core of Ethan: Meteor Hunter, but it never quite manages to do so.

    Ethan: Meteor Hunter is an interesting little game and a decent platformer with interesting concepts, however sometimes the unrefined controls can get in the way of being truly enjoyable.

    Seaven Studios has some good ideas up its sleeves and Ethan Meteor Hunter shows moments of brilliance. However, it is let down by clunky movements and puzzles that don’t always offer a challenging but fair game.

    Ethan: Meteor Hunter plays around with some interesting concepts, but although its pitched as Super Meat Boy meets Braid, it fails to do either justice. With frustrating controls and irritating puzzles, we recommend avoiding this one like the plague.

    This is by far my favourite game on the PS Vita. It's a shame its not on next gen consoles, so they should at least make a special edition PS Vita. I'm not sure about 'Ethan' however. Maybe 'Bennedict' or 'Eugene' would have been better. But that's just my personal preference. Expand
