    There is a comet appearing in the sky of platformers. It is called Schrödinger's Cat, delivering novel innovations to the genre. In such a game you do not solve the puzzles — you create them yourselves! A pity you will not finish this smash hit for it is too distracting.

    Schrodinger’s Cat has a bizarre title, but rewarding gameplay. It’s a puzzle-platformer for people who don’t usually like the genre since the puzzles are all action-oriented. It will test your mental might, but also your dexterity with its controls.

    Schrodinger’s Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark is a good puzzle platformer that manages to innovate and deliver a hilarious time. There are some issues, however, that weigh it down, from the slight platforming quirks, to the camera or some visual elements. Even so, if you're a fan, you can certainly have a great time with it.

    Overall, Schrodinger’s Cat is a cute game with some unique and interesting mechanics. Not everyone will understand the humour, but you don’t have to in order to enjoy playing. There are frustrations and annoyances here and there, but the good outweighs the bad for the most part.

    Even though the idea behind this project is unique and charming most of the things Schrodinger's Cat tries to do fall short.

    Gameplay mechanics are inventive and fresh, but the rest falls into the “retro game on a tight budget” category. [08/2015, p.61]

    There is nothing even remotely decent about this game; wherever you look, you’re bound to find only glaring mistakes.

    What a superb find of game this was!

    An old style platformer revolving around the craziest and most imaginative storyline I've ever encountered in game. The graphics remind me of zany Nickelodeon cartoons, while the super cool voice overs and intriguing, almost unique, puzzle gameplay make for tremendous fun and variety.

    The controls take a little getting used to, but once you've got the hang of the basic moves the game really picks up and delivers a challenging and extremely rewarding experience.

    Displaying bags of originality, eccentricity and scientific puns galore, this hugely fun platformer is something to relish and invest in. InDisplaying bags of originality, eccentricity and scientific puns galore, this hugely fun platformer is something to relish and invest in. In places the animation lacks a little polish, but it is more than made up for by the gameplay in the guise of appealing characters and mind-bending puzzles. Oh, and the voiceover work is stunning and hilarious!

    For me, this really is indie gaming at its very best and it is evident that the developer has sought imbue the title with a deep passion for physics and classic platform design. Rare these days to encounter games which exude a distinctive personality and charm, but Schrodinger's Cat delivers both in spades. Well done!!

    At first, the game mechanics look fresh but they result to be just a gimmick that tries so hard to have a twist on platformers. The levelAt first, the game mechanics look fresh but they result to be just a gimmick that tries so hard to have a twist on platformers. The level design is so lazy you will be seeing the same cookie-cutter platform sections over and over throughout the entire game. The characters are annoying and the humor it's just scientific puns. Lame ones. Expand

    Game plays very slow in full HD and still pretty slow in lower resolutions, even though it's a simple 2D platformer.
    Often, when the game is running at slow framerate, collisions are buggy and the character ends up stuck in a wall, leaving the player with no other option but to reset the whole level. Overall, it feels like a half-baked product. Too bad: the game mechanics were promising.
