  1. This version improves the control of the original, expands its levels and offers interesting alternative modes, enhancing an already superb game. It has lost online functions, which is a minor flaw but distances this game from perfection.

    A bevy of unlockable time trial and puzzle modes top off this premium WiiWare purchase. Must buy. [Issue#231, p.95.]

    Of course, And Yet It Moves only scratches the surface of possibility, but it is a journey absolutely worth taking.
  4. The fact that games hell-bent on breaking all the rules appear to be showing up on an increasingly regular basis across multiple download channels is genuinely heart-warming.
  5. A title that will both challenge your brain and your gaming skills while making you appreciate gravity a bit more.
  6. What moves a developer to make a game that looks like it created out of cut-outs from old magazines and newspapers? Sceptical as one can be, we are glad to say that And Yet it Moves managed to turn us around. Copying and pasting has never been this original. With its quirky art style and brain-twisting puzzles, it is nothing short of a small piece of art.

    An impressive debut from Broken Rules, who have taken their own name literally by screwing up the rule book and trying something a little different within an established genre. The gamble pays off: with a friendly concept, striking art, and abstract-yet-believable world, And Yet It Moves presents is a worthy addition to the WiiWare catalogue.
  8. Broken Rules certainly lives up to its name with And Yet It Moves, and the result is an addictive and memorable puzzle-platformer sure to please anyone with an affinity for either genre.

    This is a super creative and downright fun game but unfortunately it is over way way way to soon. It is only 10 bucks or so on the virtual console so it is well worth a purchase and play-through especially if you like plat-formers but at the end of the day it falls short of truly being a brilliant game. This is a plat-former where you don't move the character but instead you move the world around the character!! that's a bit of a lie as your character can run and jump but that's it. This opens up all sorts of fun and clever puzzles that make you think. The game can also become pretty challenging but it is just too short. The graphics are super stylized and fit the wii perfectly. I recommend this game to anybody but i just wish it were a full fledged game. Full Review »

    So yes, I play with paper dolls. And paper lizards, bees, bats and snakes. All of which reside in the off kilter strategy platformer that goes by the name of And Yet It Moves. From the moment I saw the preview video I knew I had to play this game. The overall look is very cool in an arts and crafts kind of way. Everything has the appearance of being made out of scraps of paper. From simple black and white, to fully textured varieties, the paperscapes in the levels are displayed with a truly artistic lean. To join in with this natural, hand crafted feel is the sound in this game. Very sparse and composed primarily of human voices, beatbox, and Bobby McFerrin-like vocal instrumentation. It all adds to the feeling of isolation in this game. It clearly places you on the lost planet of paper that the adventure takes place in.
    Once you get pass looking and listening, itâ
