    A delightfully charming game with some irritating design flaws that prevent it from achieving excellence. While the characters are fun and their abilities are creative, the puzzles they’re used for lack the level of challenge that’s become expected from modern indie games, and the fast-travel system often forces you to spend lots of time backtracking. That said, there’s still a lot of fun to be had in this world, and the beautiful aesthetic and fantastic musical accompaniment will keep you entertained at even the most tedious moments.

    The new title by Rain Games is a confirmation of their talent when dealing with platforms and puzzles. World to the West is the right game for the player who wants a funny brainy challenge.

    World to the West puts players in control of four unlikely heroes with unique skillsets and tasks them with exploring a puzzle-filled map. The world and its humourous characters are presented in a delightful art style and the soundtrack is great but the gameplay becomes repetitive in lengthier chunks.

    World to the West is an adventure game is the same world of Teslagrad. Is does not come near the quality of that game though. It is best to look at Word to the West as a completely new game that is more similar to Zelda. World to the West is a decent game.

    After a couple of hours, World to the West opens up and becomes a thoroughly enjoyable, if a little repetitive experience.

    Despite its ingenious puzzles, some good ideas and fun boss battles, World to the West fails in many aspects, such as story, exploration, and atmosphere. As if it wasn't enough, there are also some bugs, translation errors and unclear suggestions, which certainly do not help. However, it's still a title that fans of puzzle games and Teslagrad will probably enjoy.
