    Planet Alpha is a visual feast, featuring a fantastical sci-fi world and backed by a hauntingly atmospheric musical score. While it’s an old tale that treads over familiar ground, there’s plenty of new tricks to make it a rewarding playthrough.

    A beautiful experience. Planet Alpha looks like the game that, if Gaudi was alive today, he could have designed. Platforms, stealth and puzzles based on the day-night cycle.

    There are not many new things under Planet Alpha's alien sun when it comes to platforming and revolutionary gameplay. However, it manages to provide a pleasantly colored tale of alien exploration and mystery to experience in your living room. Not a classic, yet a decent title with memorable visual aesthetics.

    A well-crafted title that mixes elements from platform, stealth and puzzle games. Some sequences linger a bit much on a trial & error system, but the overall experience is very pleasant.

    Planet Alpha is a visually astounding platform and an enjoyable adventure in a wonderful alien world. Nevertheless it's a real shame that the experience is partially ruined by a series of clunky stealth section.

    Whilst an enjoyable and undoubtedly beautiful game, Planet Alpha never quite makes the leap into classic territory.

    Despite an attractive veneer, Planet Alpha offers rote and shallow platforming. Try Playdead’s Inside instead.

Vous serez partagé entrePlanet Alpha est le titre que l’on aime parcourir sans fin, beau, coloré et provoquant en nous des sentiments variés. Vous serez partagé entre peur, frustration, révolte, émerveillement et bien d’autres émotions. Planet Alpha est une aventure qui se mange sans faim. La trame est narrée à la perfection et on a du mal à en décrocher. Malgré quelques **** bugs mineurs et des réapparitions parfois mal réalisées le titre vaut vraiment la peine qu’on s’y attarde. Si vous avez aimé les jeux comme Limbo, Another World, Inside, vous devez vous procurer Planet Alpha. Chapeau et félicitations à Adrian Lazar et toutes les personnes qui l’on accompagné dans cette aventure de sci-fi haute en couleurs. Expand
