    Shu is the ultimate example of how a game should take its desired platform and then shape it into the most perfect game that platform has seen.

    Shu is perfectly executed and I would recommend everyone go pick this up now even if you’re not into platforms it’s fun and really does feel refreshing to play. I must say the developer has done a fantastic job here everything just seems to fit perfectly in the game from the music to the artwork and gameplay. Kudos.

    A game for the kids, an incredible game that doesn’t outstay its welcome. With a strong sense of style, Shu takes the action platformer genre into its own stride with ultra shine polish and melodic music that’ll warrant listening outside of playing the game. This is a game that’ll age well for its solid game play.

    There are a few frustrating jumps, but you’ll overcome them in no time. This artistic platformer is well worth your time and money.

    Shu is a 2,5D platform offering a good mix of classic gameplay and new ideas. The level design is very good as well as the soundtrack, resulting in a relaxing and peaceful adventure offering a few hours of fun. This is not the game for you if you are searching for a challenging platform. There are no enemies in the game a part from the stormy all-mouth monster, who sometimes appears and a chase suddenly begins. There are good ideas though, from the visual art, to the special abilities of your buddies, who contribute to keep the gameplay varied. It’s a nice game, but really way too easy for experienced players.

    Shu has pretty and nice visuals, and a solid gameplay, which mixes classic dynamics with original features, and shows a good level design. The game is suggested, even if it lasts only a few hours and it does not present such strong incentives to play it again.
