    Looks like Braid.. in Spaaaace

    • EvanTheGamer

      It does, it really, really does! That’s awesome! Will first play the trial then maybe buy the game.

      And very likely from a dev that doesn’t turn out to be a giant douche as well!

        Jonathan Blow was acting like a douche on Twitter, but he’s actually a pretty OK guy.

      Actually felt it was very similar to The UnderGarden, with the obvious addition of guns of course. My biggest issue was that I had a lot of trouble differentiating the foreground objects from background ones. I just couldn’t quite figure out what was an enemy and what was just a plant until it attacked me. As someone else pointed out, the controls seemed a bit too complicated to me as well, as if there were just too many buttons needed. Still it was otherwise not bad, certainly very pretty and definitely worth trying out the demo. Might add to my collection once I clear out some backlog.

    Penny Arcade trashed the Xbox Version of this game. Be warned.

    • http://twitter.com/xbudz Xbudz

      I can’t possibly care what Penny Arcade thinks.
      They write COMICS.

      I’ve been playing games since the 1980′s and playing this won’t hurt anybody.

        The person who wrote the article was neither Gabe nor Tycho. The article simply advises that the XBLA port is not as good as the PC version.

          Hey, pretty much any multiplatform game on PC and 360 ends up better on PC- so this is a null point.

      • ungeheier

        Sorry, i meant to say the website. It wasnt the two who write the comic, it was the guy who does game reviews/news.

    A very akward control scheme with too many items to choose to pass the perilis, make it a very frustrating game… and I’m talking about the first 2 minutes. How can you jump with the A Button when you got to aim with the right stick while avoiding dangers and moving your character across the platforms with the left stick and your aim always being flawed because it feels like it gets stuck?, all at the same time. It is not Braid, it’s a Super Metroid from hell. If a game need a pointing device so bad like they say in Penny Arcade, it must be in the N consoles, not XB360, XBone nor PS3.

    • Alice Lockhart

      Well, I usually jump with the index finger…

  • ElektroDragon

    You guys don’t know what you’re talking about. It’s not like Braid, and the control scheme isn’t that bad. It plays more like Section Z meets Pixel Junk Shooter but with very creative graphics. Very solid game, one of the better recent releases. The PA report review is laughable. He dissed the XBLA version because of too much force feedback when you get hit? Give me a break.

    • Alice Lockhart

      He just said: “LOOKS like Braid”, so…

      • ElektroDragon

        Except it doesn’t even look like Braid.

        • EvanTheGamer

          It actually does, ‘sorta’. Not ENTIRELY, but it does, SORTA. Maybe get your eyes checked.

        • Alice Lockhart

          Wanna win, huh? Ok, I give up.

  • fsdfg dsfds

    Lame, Get Konami to make another Multiplayer Castlevania game,

    Harmony of Despair 2

    • https://twitter.com/Ganon255 Ganon255

      I love Castlevania

      • fsdfg dsfds

        Yeah boy

    • ElektroDragon

      I would play this game 10 times over rather than touch a traditional masochistic Castlevania game. Let alone one with MP… ugh!

      • fsdfg dsfds

        Not much coming from a Gears noob

        • ElektroDragon

          Yeah, whatever fool. I’ve owned every Gears game at launch since the first one came out. Just because I don’t have time to play them like a teenager because I have a house, job, and kid and also have 355+ physical games and 280 Arcade games for 360 alone doesn’t make me a noob, kid.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Douchebag.

      • fsdfg dsfds

        Thx i try champ

    • http://twitter.com/xbudz Xbudz

      If you left out “Lame,” you would have had 7 thumbs up instead.

  • Clattus

    Glad I tried out the trial version, fun game. Great graphics, art style and music. Gameplay is also interesting and unique.

    Also it’s not 1200 points and even has some multiplayer.
