    Anomaly 1729 clearly had real talent and effort put into it. There is a really solid piece for the puzzle genre here. Some of the ideas, like the paced decoding of the language, are downright brilliant. The problem is that the level of technical polish is dismally low, and while none of that is really deal-breaking, the amount of sharp edges is rather trying for a 15$ game.

    It's an interesting concept, but not all of its parts are fully developed, and that's a true shame.

    Anomaly has some interesting concepts, but it fails to entice me to explore it deeper.

    While I can imagine how Portal may have inspired the team to expand on its concept, in the end, all I wanted to do was play more Portal.

    Anomaly 1729 doesn’t feel like a game that wants to be the next Portal, it feels like a game that trying to fool you into thinking it’s the next Portal. It never gives the impression that the developers were trying for something great and failed, rather it feels like they’re trying to trick customers to make a quick buck.

    A very good use of the physics and beautiful details. The experience, for me, was like an improvement of Portal without the portal gun. BadA very good use of the physics and beautiful details.
