    Despite what you could think at first glance, this is mostly an unforgiving action game, with some interesting ideas that require skill and improvisational abilities from the player. It doesn't always work perfectly, though, and it's a bit on the short side.

    Feist is an intense, challenging and captivating action platform but it's too short and lacks some balance.

    Ori is a massive game with so many levels and areas to go through, while Feist ends relatively quickly.

    It establishes an eerie mood, making you feel vulnerable to what lurks in the shadows. It just gets hung up in awkward moments at times.

    Feist is a charming dark adventure that unquestionably draws its inspiration from Limbo. Even though it has its merits with its concrete gameplay and nice artistic direction, it nevertheless cannot achieve greatness due to its short length and the insufficient variety of environments, enemies and environmental dangers.

    The game’s insistence on minimalism gives it an elegance but, conversely, it also gets in the way.

    Hedgehogs, mosquitoes, caves, rocks, jumping over branches, but no mechanism you would say "yes, it is a great thing that can make a good game." So again: As a mobile game for a few Euros - why not. But as a desktop game? Waste of time that you can spend with better pieces. I named a few of them, so if you have not played them yet, go try them.

    Many people will cry this game is "tooo harrrd".

    And it is. Metroid was difficult and it's venerated.

    Feist has innovative yet brutal platforming physics action not found in many games that I've seen.

    Its not pretty, its not easy, but neither is surviving in the forest when everyone wants to eat your flesh.

    Feist is...feisty. Are you?

    The game is great to look at, it’s simple, and the platforming feels pretty perfect as well…
    However it’s just not fun to play…
    There are 10 levels in this game which can take you anywhere from 3 to 10 minutes each to complete with a good run…
    This game personally took my around 3 hours to complete thanks to the frustrating 2nd half…
    Every level feels very Samey though…
    No change in the art direction, which kind of takes away the initial wow moment when you start playing..
    The beautiful background quickly gets muted as it doesn’t change enough to regrab my attention…
    There’s a noticeable lack of themes here…
    The gameplay here is thankfully pretty basic... you can jump, push items, pick up sticks, logs, and rocks to kill enemies with…
    You can even use some of the enemies as weapons themselves…
    And there even occasional bosses you have to take out with the environment.. Or weapons…
    These are all very tense but rewarding moments...
    Where the game starts to fall apart is the moment it adds these annoying spider creatures..
    They’re completely random feeling and unpredictable…
    And seem to spawn infinitely so killing them does nothing...
    its frustrating having to deal with them while you’re trying to figure out where to go... And really left a bad taste in my mouth for the remainder of the game…
    They just don’t stop showing up…
    Which turns the game from being more about challenging you with small puzzles and platforming... to an annoyance…
    Deaths stop feeling earned and start to feel cheap….
    And death really starts to feel cheap later on in the game when the game starts to lag and chug along when a lot of things start to happen on screen..
    Feist is a beautiful game…
    But the beauty fades fast.
    I give Feist a 6.5/10

    It's more a jump n run than a puzzle game (like Limbo). That must not be a bad thing per se but Feist didn't get me hooked at the end.

    The distance between checkpoint are to big for a game where you die a lot imho. So you will do a lot of backtracking. Furthermore 15€ for ~ 2.5 hours playtime are too much for my taste.
