  • 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.

    A little gem full of brilliant puzzles, with a fascinating storytelling and a great soundtrack. It only slightly disappoints in the gameplay department, with somewhat imprecise controls that might become a problem in the most difficult and critical sections. Despite this, it's undoubtedly a game anyone should try.

    Its gameplay isn't breaking any moulds, but the presentation makes it well worth recommending. [Feb 2015, p.83]

    I loved this game. I have a weak spot for indie games and puzzle games so this fit right in with my gaming tastes. What put this game aboveI loved this game. I have a weak spot for indie games and puzzle games so this fit right in with my gaming tastes. What put this game above most others is that the narration and story made me actually care about the shapes I was controlling. I found myself immersed in the story, wanting to know more about the world these shapes were in and what happens to them at the end of the game. This game would be just another generic puzzle platformer if not for the personality added with the narration. I will most likely be playing through this game again in the future. Expand

    The gameplay is decent - switching between characters is sometimes annoying when there are a lot of them, but generally it's not a huge deal.The gameplay is decent - switching between characters is sometimes annoying when there are a lot of them, but generally it's not a huge deal. I didn't have any issues with the controls. The graphics are fairly simple but still very nice. I was a bit disappointed by the story - it's excellent for the majority of the game, but the ending didn't live up to the expectations that the rest of the game served to build. The narration is absolutely excellent and very well-written. While this review makes the game appear objectively not anything to be excited by, I have to say that the game was very charming to me, and I would absolutely recommend it. Expand

    Platformer where you c ontrol multiple characters each with their own skills and limitations.

    The game makes you learn to work together to traverse the world and reach the goal.

    The narration in each level was good and I expected it to tell a grand story, but it didn't really go anywhere.

    Controls very well.

    Easy at start becomes fairly frustrating towards middle then gets quite easy towards the end.

    Introduces a tedious mechanic towards the end of the game, it's very creative but not much fun, thankfully only in a few puzzles.

    Not a bad game but I can't really think of any reason to recommend anyone play it either.
