    One of the most polished, well thought-out indie titles I’ve played recently featuring a solid theme, beautiful visuals and a learning curve that’d rival you-know-what… yeah, I reckon you should try this one.

    The Textorcist is a punishing, brutally difficult game that feels so good to finally conquer. A truly unique and engaging combat system accompanied by great music make this a memorable experience.

    The Textorcist: The Story of Ray Bibbia is an experiment that works better than expected. The focus on boss fights is the right one, as the exploration and puzzle sections are novel but not noteworthy. The controls can seem unwieldy at first, but part of the charm and excitement is in trying to concentrate on typing and moving at the same time. The presentation is excellent, and the length is perfect, as it never feels like the game goes on for too long. The Textorcist may seem like an odd game on the surface, but give it a chance, and you'll find it to be one of the more inventive and fun experiences out there.

    The Textorcist: The Story of Ray Bibbia is full of puns, quotes and combats. Typing is never been this fun.

    The Textorcist offers a unique twist on bullet hell gameplay that’s bogged down by annoying design and bad dialogue. Impressive but disappointingly few boss fights provide some hours of entertainment, but the game has little else to offer.

    Where to start...? You do not need mouse to play. I mean, what modern game is playable without mouse. "But does it run Textorcist?" Yes itWhere to start...? You do not need mouse to play. I mean, what modern game is playable without mouse. "But does it run Textorcist?" Yes it does! Hardware requirements are minimum. "Game-play so crappy, give me Dork Souls!" Man, this IS Dork Souls! "What is with the visuals?" They are simple yet effective, animations butter smooth. Did you notice it has nice CRT TV effect? "Stop, this is getting serious!" No, exactly the opposite. Small jokes and occasional humour guaranteed!

    Conclusion: This is the best indie game I ever had in my hands.
