  1. The game could be tightened up in a few places and we'd rather not have the stealth level at all, but if you're after a game that successfully marries old-school platforming with contemporary physics and interface, you could do a lot worse than NyxQuest.
  2. Better looking than many a retail game and with only a little more variety it could've been a 2D classic.
  3. There are many drawbacks to NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits, and they make this a tough game to recommend, especially with a 1000 Wii Point asking price. But players looking for a slow-paced platformer full of puzzles will definitely enjoy the experience.

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 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.
