  • Summary: Thomas won't be entirely alone, he'll be joined throughout by the awesome Mr Danny Wallace (XFM, Yes Man and Assassin's Creed) who will be narrating his adventures.

    The Wii U eShop has a number of top-notch download games produced with care and passion; this belongs right up there in that elite group.

    While there are a few parts of the game that feel less polished than others and I was left wanting a little more content, Thomas Was Alone is a great and consistently creative and enjoyable game.

    It might not capture the essence of the games it was originally inspired by, but by challenging those very genres and adding ideas of its own, it may well become a focal point in indie development, inspiring developers to create games in a similar vein.

    Thomas Was Alone is somewhat of an incognita as a game. Its magnificent soundtrack and overall audio work will marvel the players but the gameplay mechanics should have been much better executed and its occasional technical flaws don’t help at making the experience more pleasant.

    Thomas Was Alone is a cute little game designed for children aged roughly ten years old. I am not ten years old, but I decided to pick it upThomas Was Alone is a cute little game designed for children aged roughly ten years old. I am not ten years old, but I decided to pick it up anyway to see what it's all about. What I found was that the game oozes charm. It is its charm that makes the game what it is. Had it not been present, the game would be completely and utterly boring. The gameplay is simple yet effective, which is great. However, I found it to be much too short, especially compared to many other indie titles available on the eShop, and this really was a killer for me. I understand that the intent is for the younger audience to play it, but even a little bit of experience will get you through the game with little trouble, no matter how old you are. If you're looking for a game that's full of charm and minimalistic visuals, look no further than Thomas Was Alone. But don't expect an amazingly in-depth adventure with bonus material and side quests because you will surely be disappointed. Expand

    Easy little performer with a great narrator that keeps things interesting. If you can though, get it on a different platform. The Wii uEasy little performer with a great narrator that keeps things interesting. If you can though, get it on a different platform. The Wii u version at times stutters when a new voice clip starts, which is annoying and at times can kill you. It's playable enough, but it shouldn't happen, especially since a game like this in no way should be taxing for any semi recent console. Expand
