    The only thing I can say about this game is that it' is boring. The music is good, the design is good, the controls are good, but the game is just boring to a fault.

    The "insane" part of this game are these stupid missile mazes where you guide badly controlled missiles through tight mazes without touching the walls. I made it through the first 2 of these, but I gave up after 50 attempts at the 3rd. Craziest difficulty spike I've ever seen in a game. I wanted to keep playing, but the devs kicked me out of the game with this stupid mechanic.

    It isn't a challenge or an epic, but for an arty game that's worthy of a seat next to Limbo, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet knows how to give you a good time without taking very much of it. [Aug 2012, p.69]

    A pure distillation of old-school gameplay, decanted into a laser-cut crystal goblet of 21st Century awesome. [June 2012, p.66]

    This game still is very unique – at least stylistically. And on the PC you get the better visuals, the better controls and overall more value for your money in this intersting MetroidVania variation.
