    If you look past the frustration, though, Feist is a commendable title for someone who is after a simple story and simple gameplay.

    Feist is beautiful to look at, but all of this praise is overshadowed by the unfairness and frustration from its unbalanced challenge.

    Feist is a short length game that, combining puzzles, presents a complicated challenge despite its simple mechanics. The different levels are full of painstakingly made art and excellent music. It’s a minimalistic game that succeeds in entertaining.

    While it certainly takes certain cues from Limbo in terms of its art style and atmosphere, Feist is undoubtedly different and brings some interesting mechanics to the table, but its unrefined AI and extremely easily-exploitable boss enemies mean that Feist just feels like a limited and broken platformer.

    Feist feels like Limbo and Where the Wild Things Are had a not so fun love child.

    Unrelenting and vicious: this pitiless survival game is not for the easily frustrated. [March 2017, p.83]

    Feist may be pleasing to the senses, but it's frustration for the hands.

    The game is great to look at, it’s simple, and the platforming feels pretty perfect as well…
    However it’s just not fun to play…
    There are 10 levels in this game which can take you anywhere from 3 to 10 minutes each to complete with a good run…
    This game personally took my around 3 hours to complete thanks to the frustrating 2nd half…
    Every level feels very Samey though…
    No change in the art direction, which kind of takes away the initial wow moment when you start playing..
    The beautiful background quickly gets muted as it doesn’t change enough to regrab my attention…
    There’s a noticeable lack of themes here…
    The gameplay here is thankfully pretty basic... you can jump, push items, pick up sticks, logs, and rocks to kill enemies with…
    You can even use some of the enemies as weapons themselves…
    And there even occasional bosses you have to take out with the environment.. Or weapons…
    These are all very tense but rewarding moments...
    Where the game starts to fall apart is the moment it adds these annoying spider creatures..
    They’re completely random feeling and unpredictable…
    And seem to spawn infinitely so killing them does nothing...
    its frustrating having to deal with them while you’re trying to figure out where to go... And really left a bad taste in my mouth for the remainder of the game…
    They just don’t stop showing up…
    Which turns the game from being more about challenging you with small puzzles and platforming... to an annoyance…
    Deaths stop feeling earned and start to feel cheap….
    And death really starts to feel cheap later on in the game when the game starts to lag and chug along when a lot of things start to happen on screen..
    Feist is a beautiful game…
    But the beauty fades fast.
    I give Feist a 6.5/10
