Riguardo questo gioco

Il successo di critica su PSN PixelJunk™ Eden ha messo radici su Steam!
Con una gamma di caratteristiche aggiuntive e controlli reimmaginati appositamente per PC, PixelJunk™ Eden su Steam avrà un nuovo sapore anche per i più navigati veterani della versione PS3. Dondola, arrampicati e salta attraverso enormi "giardini" zeppi di vibrante ed eterea vita piantacea in questo platform e cresci ogni giardino mentre esplori e guidi il tuo piccolo ma agile "Grimp" alla ricerca degli sfuggenti "Spectra" nascosti in ogni scenario. Cavalca gigantesche piante mentre crescono sotto i tuoi piedi, per poi dondolarti da esse distruggendo i Ladri di Polline in una sempre crescente cacofonia di polline. Lasciati sparare via dai cannoni, fluttua a gravità zero, teletrasportati in mondi specchio oppure lasciati semplicemente sballottare in giro dal vento mentre rimani aggrappato ad una foglia dondolante nel vuoto; ogni giardino ha una serie di sfide, puzzle e nemici unici che ti metteranno alla prova!
Con una colonna sonora minimal techno originale ed uno stile grafico unico, creati appositamente ed in armonia tra loro dall'artista multimediale Indie "Baiyon", Eden vi darà un'esperienza di gioco mai vissuta su questo pianeta, o sul prossimo.

So in this game you are like a little fairy-bug thing, and you jump and swing around and collect pollen to grow plants so that you can jump on them and go higher up to find and collect magic seed-things for your garden. Or something. I'm really not sure and I don't quite care enough to figure out more.

I bought this game on sale for 99¢ and it's a pretty nice game to zone out and click around in. So if zoning out and jumping around a fairly pleasing atmosphere with some somewhat calm electronic background music is your thing, this game is for you.

Cute game, though whats bugging me extremely is the forced retreat once you get one of those 5 shards or whatever they are called. I just want to continue playing the level and enjoy the music, and not want to be forced to reenter it every 5 minutes.

PixelJunk Eden is a pretty unusual game. The gameplay is somewhat open, in that although there is a goal in each level (search for and collect the "spectra"), there are a few different ways you can approach it. You can just jump around as much as possible, searching around for the spectra, fleeing from the occasional enemy, and sometimes making a mistake that lands you back at the bottom of the level. Or you can focus on collecting pollen and building the branches - playing it safe - until you just happen across the spectra naturally.

The game is (intentionally) slow paced. Each level is basically the same as the last except that you meet new enemies and unlock new abilities as you complete each "garden". The soundtrack has a very "indie" feel to it, but it's decent - just a little repetetive.

It runs decently on my 4 year-old low-end laptop that only runs TF2 at 10 fps. The game is clearly designed to use a mouse (some of the abilities require a scroll-wheel), but I have no problem playing it on my touchpad.

In the end, I'm not entirely sure why I enjoy the game, but it serves as a good way to take a short break from work/studies and relax. It's carefully designed to be moderately engaging but almost never frustrating.

Jumping and falling

Like leaves of sakura tree

Yet less gracefully.

DO NOT BUY THIS!

Develepors "forgot" to implement the multiplayer (neither local nor online is included even though the title screen says 1-3 player) they even say in the steam forum that they will not change anything about that.

WASTE OF MONEY

DO NOT SUPPORT THIS!

You could say I just didn't play the game for long enough, or that I just didn't grasp the idea if it, but ♥♥♥♥, the short time I played it was boring and felt like an eternity.
I didn't enjoy it.

NO! More frustrating than relaxing.
There's no fun in climbing the same level over and over as you try to reach the top/sides and falling every 10 seconds. The Teleport ability drains so much life bar that you can really do it once or twice per level. Also no Gamepad support.

Has some pretty visuals and decent music (sometimes gets a bit repetitive). The controls are pretty basic as they are essentially limited to the mouse. There are a good number of levels to complete, but there's really not much variety in enemies and you are tasked with collecting five objects per level, which can become a bit tedious. The game hasn't ever crashed and I never encountered a bug, which is good for an indie game. My main problem is if you fall down, you're pretty much resigned to climbing all the way back up (at least for a portion of the game). Worth it if you can get it on sale.

I picked this game up for a trifle on one of the holiday sales and sat on it for months without any enthusiasm for what I expected it to be. When I finally started playing it, I was pleasantly surprised with what I found.
The concept is simple (jump and swing about on a 2D map to collect goodies while avoiding unfriendly encounters), but the execution is elegant and easy to enjoy. I have not come across anything terribly difficult (though I still have a lot of the game yet to play, so that might well change), but the goals take enough thought and effort to give satisfaction when a stage is completed. This may not be a hard-core gamer's game, but it is a relaxing time killer that is easy to break into small doses (just be warned that you will be sorely tempted to play "just one more round" when you really have other things you should be doing).

Seppur tecnicamente bello e fatto bene il gioco in se manca completamente di eccitazione e divertimento, è molto lento (non nelle prestazioni) manca la sfida.

Ever feel like you just need to relax and tend to a garden or something? This game makes you feel lost in nature and time. My mom actually watched me play for a few minutes.

Pixeljunk Eden made its way into my library on a whim and it turned out to be a solid decision.

This is a good game to play for relaxing and quiet time. Gameplay consists of leading a small creature from plant to plant or to rocks via jumping or spinning. In later gardens there are additional movement and puzzle mechanics which complicate the game in a positive way. The game introduces new mechanics slowly, which keeps frustration to a minimum. There's some need for planning and quick movements at times, but it's not a game that relies 100% on twitch reactions. The main goal is to find all 5 spectra in each garden and there are additional challenges such as collecting all 5 spectra in 10 minutes or unlocking all seeds in a garden. You can go as quickly or as slowly as you want through gardens, which is a very attractive freedom to me. It has an odd graphic style which is pretty fresh. Each garden has its own graphic style and color scheme, which change as you collect spectra. The music is made by an independent Kyoto artist and is a good selection of electronic trance with light beat (get the soundtrack bundle, it's worth it).

Overall, this is a solid puzzle game that has a lot of fresh and interesting attributes - a great thing to play and just relax with.

+ Art style is visually pleasing
+ Gameplay is very simple and casual, but can get decently challenging in the later gardens
+ Audio for the game was very fitting and helped maintain a relaxing atmosphere

- Becomes monotonous after a few hours; I recommend picking this up in small doses

PixelJunk Edel is a very clear example of how a videogame can be art. With vibrant visuals complimented by the beautiful music and relaxing gameplay, this game is absolutely stunning. Working goal-focussed does not work in this game; the only way to pass the levels is by allowing yourself to wander around. Definitely worth the pick up.

Dear Pixeljunk Eden:

I don't understand why I play you. You are mind-numbingly boring.

You are also somewhat relaxing, and you set a mood I have yet to be able to put words to.

You vary based on mood, is what I'm getting at. I like you. I dislike you. I don't know anymore have this thumbs up.

I got this game gifted to me, and was really happy to be able to try it out. I like having games I can play when I want more casual, relaxing gameplay, and PixelJunk Eden serves this purpose very, very well.

If you like artsy, atmospheric platformers with good pacing, then you will really enjoy this game.

The aesthetics are spectacular! The artstyle and background is very refreshing - the theme is plants in a garden (in a variety of colors depending on the level). The sounds and music are very good and add to the relaxing atmosphere emitted by the game.

The controls are fairly simple and easy to learn - instructions are given whenever a new mechanic is introduced. The tutorial is quick and painless - your primary objective is to find these special items throughout the level. The learning curve is minimal - the most you have to worry about is completing your objective before your time runs out, however, it is quite easy to obtain the collectibles that increase your time limit.

During gameplay, there are various pollen-like objects floating around the area, and hitting them will cause the pollen particles to float toward the nearest "plant-budding" area. When enough pollen has accumulated within the circle, touching it with your character will cause a plant to sprout. These structures are essential because your character can stick to any part of the plant, allowing you to jump/move to higher areas. Later, you will unlock a rappel ability, allowing you to swing for a finite amount before propelling yourself in a particular direction. Furthermore, if your rope touches any time-increasing collectibles or pollen-objects, they will automatically be collected.

You have a time limit, and collecting certain items will increase your limit by a few bars (the larger object will refill it by a great deal). As you progress through the game, you will also unlock a teleport-reset ability (very useful for when you accidentally fall a large distance), however, using this requires you to spend a portion of your time limit gauge.

As you collect more of the spectra (level completion) items, you will eventually unlock more gardens. Interestingly, whenever you first unlock a new garden, you MUST complete at least one portion of that new garden (get the first spectra item). Also, as you unlock more gardens, the appearance of the main menu area will liven up with beautiful plant-like structures. There are also various random hint nodes all across the menu that you can move to in order to receive fairly-helpful advice.

Overall, if you are into atmospheric platformers with a unique artstyle, you must try out this game.

Definitely recommend!

Cheers,
