Inspired by the simplicity and joy of twin-stick shooters and other arcade games, players take control of two beautiful, gooey snakes at the same time (one with each analog stick). Together, you use the snakes to paint the world, which continually changes around you, while dodging bullets and popping enemies. Both soothing and tense, Soft Body combines the challenge and twitchy fun of quick­restart action games with a smooth, meditative aesthetic. Expand

    It doesn’t feel like it was made as a game to be enjoyed, it feels like it was a game that was made to be experienced.

    But, as an action-puzzler, Soft Body is great fun and has some incredibly rewarding puzzles – especially when you get into Hard Game and Soft Game+, where you cannot combine your bodies and the game takes on a whole other realm of maddening difficulty.

    Soft Body is a very unusual release whose abstract gameplay starts out addictive and entertaining, but soon becomes fiendishly challenging. Its high level of difficulty means it's not for everyone, but if you have superb reflexes and coordination, and love action-puzzle games, it's worth a look.

    Soft Body is a challenging puzzle-action game, with a colourful palette and beautiful soundtrack, but its repetitive nature stops it from being more than a niche curio.

    While Soft Body initially strikes a nice balance of difficulty, the later levels become far too complex, which is a serious problem as being able to solve these puzzles comes down to your physical attributes.

    There are glimpses of brilliance in Soft Body, but it is sadly eclipsed by its unrewarding, obtuse and frustrating delivery.
