    A clever and accessible combat system masks a brilliant meta commentary. [Issue#258, p.63]

    Icey is a fantastic combination of a great slasher and intriguing story, with original narration. It could seem strange at first glance, but it's a great game, unique and engaging.

    ICEY is as normal of a platformer as The Stanley Parable is a normal adventure game; and though it will take just a few hours to find all hidden endings, Easter eggs and achievements, the experience is more than worth it. [Issue#217, p.84]

    Groovy, sarcastic and pleasantly crazy. Icey is basically an action-filled spiritual successor to The Stanley Parade.

    If you’re looking for something challenging and a little different to lose yourself in for a few hours, ICEY is super cool. Puns absolutely intended.

    I’m pretty fond of ICEY. The combat could (and should) be better but I enjoyed my time with it, and appreciated its willingness to whip out the sort of unexpected, bizarre narrative twists that most games don’t even consider.

    that's really a wondeful 2D game with nice design...
    ICEY is you and you is ICEY!

    The game, the kind of opposition he is a playmaker. When trying to exclude the possibility that you understand the truth about him.

    Even at the moment of the game, half of the match saw a sight that surprised narrator says: Oh my god. why i forgot to complete here?
    And he transfer you to another area.

    So, if you want to see the game world through the lens of a game maker, I recommend this game to you.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. A really nice designed action game! Really loved the combat system which has elements of devil may cray and bayonetta. Also lenjoyed the nice graphics. So why a seven? Because this game is way too short. I was able to complete it in less then two hours. Also the story could have been worked out a little bit better. But all the minor negative notes aside you should try it out because its a good game! Expand

    Hat auf jeden Fall gute Elemente im Spiel, die Gegner sind Kreativ Gestaltet und ergänzen sich gut im Spiel und die Kämpfe genial gemacht.Hat auf jeden Fall gute Elemente im Spiel, die Gegner sind Kreativ Gestaltet und ergänzen sich gut im Spiel und die Kämpfe genial gemacht. Jedoch ist die Story des Spiels nicht besonders mitfühlbar und die Musik wiederholt sich. Das Upgrade Menü ist auch eher Mager, aber wer das Genre mag für den ist dieses Spiel gut geeignet. Expand
