    Simple, but addictive, thrilling and yet funny: The only flaw is a missing plot. Great jump'n'run with a scent of puzzle.

    SHIFT is an interesting game featuring a bit of humor and crafty puzzles using a single, inventive mechanic. It isn't without its flaws, but if the $3.99 price tag for only a few hours of play doesn't scare you off, I'd definitely recommend checking it out.

    Shift: Extended also has one of those insidious background tunes that probably provide a soundtrack to your dreams for the next 17 years. Just don't play it on the train without headphones - you don't want innocent bystanders suffering the same fate.

    Shift Extended is a great puzzle game put in a serious disadvantage because of its pricing structure. At its current price-point, it's hard to recommend it outside of those who absolutely adore puzzle games.

    Shift Extended is a quirky and addictive platform-puzzler, though sadly doesn't provide much more than an hour's worth of entertainment.

    Shift Extended is a fascinating game and definitely fun. Unfortunately, it doesn't reach excellence because of some defect attributable to the level design.

Just like Braid did it before, this is definitely the kind of game which brings something new to the platformer genre. Expand

    I'm no fan of the platform genre but I finished all the flash games and this one definitely rocks
    many levels of fun plus a portal-like humor

I actually bought the iPhone version which has been a huge success on the AppStore. I'm a PS3 owner and when I saw the game I directly bought it without reading a review. The game is actually pretty similar to the original game but in GOOD way! There are tons of levels, slick black and white art and some new gameplay mechanics. I really enjoyed the experience. Expand

    As PS3 player I was happy to see the game on this console, and the opportunity to take it away on my PSP is a great thing. That kind of game proves that a game doesn't need high-res graphics to be good, and that the old-school style is still nice!
