  1. A beautiful looking game which is also lots of fun to play. It’s true that it is not a massive game, you should be able to beat it 100% in just 3 hours, but those 3 hours will be completely filled with pure platforming bliss. This is exactly the sort of thing we want to see more of on WiiWare and comes highly recommended to all.
  2. This is the best WiiWare title yet, and clearly one of the greatest games from the Wii catalog.
  3. NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits is old-school at heart, but completely innovative and fresh when it comes to gameplay. It's an excellent adventure that defines the gold standard for WiiWare.
  4. An original and modern 2D-platformer. NyxQuest blends action and puzzles into one seamless entity. [Aug 2009]
  5. A must have title for you to download, Nintendo and Mario should take note as this is one of the best platformers on the market.
  6. Over the Top Games has shown that it's possible to develop excellent games with the relatively limited resources of WiiWare. It's not just having an original and good idea, but also knowing how to make the best of the available resources.

    This game has a fantastic atmosphere! Perfect music, perfect graphics, perfect controls. Everything at a moderate level of difficulty. It motivated me recently to play WiiWare games again. :-) Only the ending is kind of unsatisfying, for this reason 9/10. Makes me feel the developers run out of time. Full Review »

    Great game, designed with the old school enchantment, for moments I was able to smell my NES console. Simple but addictive, you always need more. It's TOO short and in this game that's a sin. Atmosphere, music, controls, and colossal elements make this a memorable game. I think it is expensive, you pay a book and receive a comicbook. Full Review »
