Don't want to read much:
Pro:
+ Platformer
+ Looks nice
+ Cheap (when on sale)

Con:
- Bad Controls (imprecise)
- Button colors/labels ingame do not match with xbox controller (the one tobe seems to hold)
- Flow interrupting "cutscene" in every level
- No two controller coop, just controller/keyboard (title supports only local coop)
- Tiny resolution
- Unable to exit the game with the controller


I usually enjoy platformer, especially short and independet ones with great music.

I don't really care for the graphics, although I have to say Tobe's looked pretty appealing to me on the screenshots.

However nice graphics cannot make up for broken control mechanics, which are in my opinion the most important part of any platformer.

Dispite the Vertical aspect of the name, there was also a lot of horizontal travel as well. Pretty much a 2-for-1 deal.

I wish I could reccomend this game, but I can't.

The controls are awkward, and that's just not good for a platforming game.
It's unforgiving which some people like, but I don't.

The game itself is actually reall pretty and nice looking but personally, I just don't like the game.

This is probably on the very tame side of negative, but negative it is nonetheless.

My main problem with this game comes down to the controls; they're very stiff and clunky and even 100%'ing the game I'm still not quite sure how everything works. Wall jumping in particular is a pain but really there's just a lot of weirdness here.

The neat thing about this game is the way levels start you off going down, then hurry you back upwards with more paths unlocked. It's actually generally pretty clever level design and only a few levels really spoil this by forcing you to wait for an obstacle to be out of the way.

That being said it's also fairly glitchy and clipping through walls/platforms is not an uncommon occurence. Not a huge hindrance but it's there.

The music and graphics are fairly standard 16-bit type stuff, nothing really special.

The control scheme is also quite awkward and if I ever thought directly about which button to press I'd always end up pressing the wrong one. It's just strange.

This probably isn't a "bad" game but it's not one I particularly enjoyed, it's a very "meh" game more than anything. It's also really short, 16 levels that can be completed in a few minutes each. Probably not really worth it for the price, that's also a part of my rating here. Honestly it's possible to have some fun with this game but it's not a high-quality experience even still.

Tobe's Vertical Adventure is a retro platformer built around modern ideas. As the titular Tobe and his would-be girlfriend Nana, you embark on a quest to loot every island you come across and making off with as much gold as you can carry. A simple plot for a simple game, it sets up Tobe's most interesting feature.

Each level is structured like that of a cave, starting you off at the top and forcing you to make your way down to the treasure somewhere at the bottom. When you finally get your prize, the cave begins to collapse opening new paths and sending you scrambling for the surface before time runs out and you are trapped under the rubble. It's a cool mechanic that I haven't seen other games do, and works well given the somewhat nonlinear level design that lets you choose from several different paths going both downwards and upwards. Being able to run off one side of the screen and pop out the other also allows for more creative traversal, which is the game's strongest asset.

But aside from this much of the game is rather clumsy, especially in terms of controls and movement. Essentially you move as a mix of Sonic 2's underwater levels with the original Prince of Persia's acrobatic hijinks. Tobe can run up walls, slide under gaps, and dangle from hanging branches, whereas Nana swaps the wall climb for a double jump. This sounds great on paper would work fantastically with the open level designs, if only the characters controlled with any consistency. Button presses register only part of the time, your jump is terribly weak which makes scaling walls frustratingly unpredictable, and movement as a whole feels like Sonic plodding through a muddy swamp.

The second problem is the game is alarmingly short. I completed all 16 levels in just over an hour, which for the price feels quite insufficient. Theoretically you could double this time if you plan to play through with both characters, but they play so similarly I don't believe it to be worth doing so.

All the while I was playing I couldn't help but think how much Tobe's Vertical Adventure feels like a flash game awkwardly dressed up as a full game and put up on Steam as if players wouldn't notice. If it wasn't for the terrible controls I could still recommend it at sale prices, but unfortunately they ruined my enjoyment of the game and I wouldn't feel right advising others to purchase it. I'm quite disappointed to have to say it too because the level designs, art and music are not half bad, but a platformer with bad controls is like a sandwich without bread. It just doesn't work.

This game is a very short and sweet platformer with an emphasis on collecting all the little critters while running through each map in as little time as possible. The music's catchy and really slick, the art and spritework is topnotch and cute, and the game is very much playable and charming. The game also sports a co-op mode where you can get a friend locally to play the game with you. Plus the game has bonus extras for collecting allt he critters and meeting goals set by the game itself.

The only real big downsides to this game is that it is VERY short and often jsut a wee bit buggy with climbing walls and such, often leading to lost time or clipping. However it's a rare occurance and doesn't take too much away from what is a short and very cute game. It definitely comes recommended!

If you like pixel platformers and don’t mind technical (control-setup) limitations, go ahead.

I didn’t like it. The technology seems limited, I didn’t like the controls, and the scrambling animation half through a level takes way too long for my taste. The story is really basic and put on top.

If you like pixel platformers, it still may be for you.

Tobe's Vertical Adventure is a mix of classic platformers and new platformers but will you want to sit through this game ? In Tobe's Vertical Adventure you play as Tobe his Girlfriends Nana brings him on an adventure to find a treasure. So how is this game ? Now i wish to give this a good Review but im not gonna do that. First of all the game is quite charming and at first glance fun but after playing it for a while you start noticing the flaws. First the good. The game is quite fun to play and it looks beutifull but after that its all bad. Glitches are all over the place and it makes the game an even bigger challenge. The game has unresponsive and broken controlls. The game is incredibly short clocking in at around one hour long. Overall the game is pretty broken mess thats not worth your money or youre time only get it on a sale when it goes 90% off or a bundle with other games other wise dont bother. Tobe's Vertical Adventure gets a 5/10

Tobe's Vertical Adventure is a vertical platformer where the player must decend levels, then ascend them with a time limit and a slightly different layout. There are three modes, each with the same set of 16 levels: Tobe, Nana, and Co-op. Tobe has basic controls while Nana is slower and has a shorter jump. However, Nana can double jump, which beaks the game (you can get almost anywhere). You're given ropes to get up to places more easily and balloons to make longer jumps, but I found myself rarely using them. Animals and treasure chests are placed throughout the level to collect and some are put in tricky places (as Tobe, at least). For a small game like this, the soundtrack is nice.
My gripes with the game are its controls and its length. Sometimes the controls were unresponsive/odd (on an Xbox 360) controller and there were unpolished aspects. As said before, it's the same 16 levels and the game only took me a couple of hours to beat. If it interests you, I'd only get it at 75% off.

Grabbed this on Xbox Live Indie Games and never really played much of it, remember it having quite dodgy controls, which were later patched. Picked this up on the cheap and sat with it and really enjoyed it, nice little platformer of old, collect all the gems and hidden animals. When you get to the bottom of each level the cave starts to chase you back up to the top, you normally only have a set amount of time to get back but it's never too tense and is normally easy enough to do.
Simple platforming fun, well worth a look at.

Shoddily coded platformer that's not particularly amazing. If you have a copy, here are some tips:

- Play as Nana if you're not co-op, double-jump is great.
- The game does not save your settings. Period. So god help you if you want it windowed/lower volume/custom keys, you're changing it every time.
- If you play windowed/alt-tab away, the game will continue tracking your key inputs when it's not in focus! Have fun responding to an IM and then it quits the game on you.
- 4-3 is a ♥♥♥♥ed up stage. Worst level in the game.

I'm platformer-friendly but damn this thing is repetitive without any real positives.

レトロゲーのようなアクションゲーム
ローカルCo-opでひと通りクリアしたがボリュームは少なめ。
細かいバグがまだ目立ちますがそれなりには遊べました。

A decent platformer where the twist is that every time you complete a level you have to run it backwards within a minute and thirty seconds. It is an alright game but certainly not a memorable one to say the least.

Just another wonky controlled, delayed response, buggy platformer with standard enemies and bad collisions unfortunately. Nothing much else to say.

No, it wasn't "kawaii" at all.
It was a little fun though.

Light fun with tight controls, good music and enjoyable art reminiscent of NES platformers with a little added panache.

Recensione di una copia anticipata
I really, really want to like this game, but I just can't. There are too many things that just don't work well. 'What then, deejay ? Tell me !' I hear you say. Well, for starters, the controls are terrible. TERRIBLE. I've been playing games for so long and this is one of the first games that I just can't play properly. The controller works a little bit better, but the Escape button isn't mapped at all, so in the end you have to use both the controller AND keyboard. Settings like 'Windowed' and default input device aren't saved as well. Meaning I have to set things up EVERY SINGLE time I play this game. Now, I don't mind doing it a couple of times, I'm a fairly patient man. But this is just annoying. Is that the idea behind it ? To annoy me ? To see when I'll snap ? I'm this close, this close !
But still... Positive things about the game are the graphics (which I love !) and the gameplay itself (even though it's a straightforward platformer).
For now; recommended after a few patches.

[Rating: 70/100]

Tobe's is a pretty fun "Typical Indie Platformer With Retro Graphics," an already pretty bloated genre.

Gameplay consists of running around collecting (or in a lot of cases, ignoring) treasure and little animals before trying to escape before the whole place collapses. I'll be honest, I never had any trouble escaping to see what happens before the timer runs out.

The story's bare and the art used for it consists of some dated internet meme faces that feel really out of place unlike say, a timely trollface modeled boulder in Rock of Ages. It's pretty easy to ignore though: you grab treasure, then you find a new map. Ta da.

There are a LOT of graphical issues though. Like, if you try and resize the window it only crops say 800x600 of the original rez instead of resizing it properly. I probably lucked out to get it to even work from what I've heard.

It's still fun, there's probably better indie retro platformers, but if you say got it in a bundle Tobe's shouldn't waste too much money.

A beautiful, well-polished, simple platformer throwing back to better days. Definitely a gamer's game made by gaming gamers for gamers who game. The only fault I can really give it is that it's local co-op only, and no online. And the only fault I can give myself for faulting that, is having no friends.
