    Cobalt is a great adventure that successfully mixes many different gameplay elements to deliver something quite unique, adding its own ideas to the 2D experience.

    Cobalt is a resourceful game stained only by a controversial artistic direction. An indie gem that, between single-player and multiplayer, gives everything and does it well.

    A boldly inventive 2D shooter that asks a lot of its players but rewards them with one of the most versatile action games of recent months.

    It felt like playing through an old favorite and realizing it wasn't quite what you remembered - but kind of liking it anyway.

    Cobalt is an entertaining platform game with excellent controls and an awesome combat system. But it also involves a lot of obstacles that should not be in there, which keeps it from being really good.

    Those who welcome demanding, reactive and deep gameplay will find a lot to love about the Cobalt. It harshly punishes the impatient, but it'll reward those who take the time to master it.

    Overall, Cobalt is a side-scrolling adventure that features devastatingly horrible level design, useless deaths and an overly frustrating time constraint system that handcuffs you to a paddle-less boat while it takes the death plunge over the falls.

    Great game. Love that we have a 2D game out that has recoil in it too. A good challenge, and fun to play with others online or locally. ThereGreat game. Love that we have a 2D game out that has recoil in it too. A good challenge, and fun to play with others online or locally. There is still more fun to be had even when you finish the campaign. Highly recommend this game. Expand
