    This is a must-have download title – high quality, innovative indie gameplay style, immersive story, six hours of fun and stealth-action pickled with puzzle elements.

    Warp is a brilliant, inventive and well thought out action puzzler that's easy to pick up and hard to put down again. It's a bargain at the price, and a title we'll heartily recommend to all fans of games like Portal.

    Overall, WARP is a definite must play, as the game plays great, has some mind twisting challenges and puzzles, and provides enough replay value thanks to challenges and leaderboards. The only real question is whether or not it is for you, and to that, all I can say is play the demo, and if you dig that…the rest of the game is gravy.

    The name really says it all in this Metal Gear Solid-inspired puzzle-adventure, as you teleport through an underwater research facility in pursuit of freedom. Puzzles are reasonably clever and gameplay can be stealthy or full of action depending on your preferences, and despite some control issues and a general feeling of unoriginality Warp is a pleasant enough diversion.

    Repetition is probably Warp's biggest issue. Without much in the way of enemy and environmental variety, it can start to feel like a chore at times to make your way through the facility. Puzzles and progression blend together. Unfortunately, Warp's challenging difficulty forces the game to devolve into decidedly cheap scenarios.

    As much as Warp's presentation gives you the illusion that you are playing a charming game full of personality, a lot of the initial goodwill and attachment to the cute critter protagonist is slowly eroded by your actions and the problematic controls. In the end, all that is left at your disposal is a virtual representation of your imminent failure and repetitive demise.

    Addictive! A great action-puzzle game (funny in a sarcastic way, great graphics, sound and level design) that's worth at least a few seconds of your time to watch a gameplay trailer that will speak for itself. Expand

    This game is fantastic, it's a challenging, innovative, and all-in-all, beautifully designed indie game. The characters are quirky and fun, the puzzles change over time as you unlock power ups, and as I said before it can be challenging... I don't usually get stumped in puzzle games but this game left me scratching my head once or twice. If you are looking for a game, a really good indie game, check this one out... You won't be disappointed. Expand

    A intelligent Puzzle / Action game, that need both speed and fast-thinking to overcome the puzzle-like rooms, that compose the game scenario (a underwater laboratory). The characters have a cartoon like look, sometime cute, as Ilomilo, but with a violent twist.

    The main character is the cute alien-energy being, that have the power to transport (warp) inside various objects, as canisters, guns, and... humans - and that where the game has it gore side, because he can expand the object / person till it explodes.

    The main objective of the mini-stages is to stay alive, and get to another area, as the story continues; in the game there are also Challenges that test your powers and capacity of using them. There are also enemies as Soldiers and sometimes a Boss-Like character appear.

    Inside the various rooms, there are also the collectibles of the game, in the form of small creatures that you can eat.

    The downside of the game is that sometimes is very "trial and error", and needs fast movements, giving it a tense gameplay, that can be can be repetitive too. Recommended to people who like Puzzle games with some action and humor: my score - 7,6 .
