About This Game

The critically acclaimed PSN hit PixelJunk™ Eden has swung its way to Steam!
With a spectrum of new features and controls re-imagined specifically for the PC, PixelJunk™ Eden on Steam will feel brand new for even the most seasoned veterans of the PS3 version. Swing, climb, and jump your way through massive “gardens” of vibrant other-worldly plant-life in this truly organic platformer and grow each garden as you explore and guide your tiny yet agile "Grimp" toward the elusive "Spectra" which are hidden throughout each stage. Ride giant plants as they grow beneath you, then swing from them destroying Pollen Prowlers in an ever-increasing cacophony of pollen. Be fired from cannons, float in zero-G, warp to mirror worlds or simply be buffeted about by the wind while clinging desperately to a dangling leaf; each garden has a unique set of challenges, puzzles and enemies that will expand your mind!
Featuring a minimal original techno soundtrack and unique graphic style both of which were created in harmony with each-other by Indie multimedia artist “Baiyon”, Eden will give you an experience like no other game on this planet, or the next.

Key features:

  • A spellbinding harmony of sight and sound realized by independent musician and graphic artist Baiyon.
  • All 15 gardens from both Eden and the "Encore" expansion pack available for play.
  • Completely re-imagined controls for the mouse.
  • An all new "Quick Warp" feature that allows players to quickly return to their last jump position if they find themselves falling too far..
  • A new and improved "continue" feature: Players can now start from the last Spectra they took on any given stage.
  • Lots of new fun achievements added for your Steam achievement list!

Pixel Junk Eden is by these people http://www.q-games.com/ and I am now very interested in them.

This is a game where you could judge it quickly by face value, but you really need to stick with it to understand and see the beauty of it. It is a REALLY good puzzle game.

The objective is to control a bug through spinning and rolling and make it hit spores and then collect the pollen so that it germinates nearby seeds which will grow further branches which you can now latch onto. You must navigate each map with your grappling silk hook and find five spectra (glowing bulb spirits) so that you can unlock more maps. There is a total of 75 spectra in all. The game is visually impressive with it's abundant in your face vibrant colors and patterns and it's comprehensive list of trendy instrumental music scores. It's peaceful and relaxing, but it is also very fast if you are to take on the challenge of getting the whole five spectra in a single course in a single run. There is no dillydallying then. The further you progress the more interesting the different mechanics of the game.

What I love about this game is that there is NOTHING like it. Well done to the developers for producing a UNIQUE product and visual. It's constantly on sale and I would say it's worth more than what it goes on sale for. High Praise.

Some people like shooting up teh newbs on Modern Warfare and then 420 blazin it with their dogs to relieve stress. Me? I'll stick with PixelJunk Eden. The smoothest, most relaxing experience I've ever seen on Steam.

Calming if you want it to be, stressful if you want to be a completionist. Great game for killing a half hour.

Mildly positive recommendation.

Pros:
* relaxing music
* lots of exploration. it feels quite nice to be able to sweep up the pollen, open up the seeds, and find the spectra.
* can be played with mouse only -- an ideal game for playing one-handed.
* gameplay can fit in short spurts if you want it that way.

Cons:
* ugh, the momentum! while it's fair, it keeps on making me miss my jumps and other things. Might be nicer if it were set laterally 2D rather than up/down 2D, so there were no gravity effects. (NOTE: when you jump off, your momentum resets to a jump momentum in the direction you jump. you don't get the momentum of the object you were standing on even if it was moving.)
* having enemies that interrupt your movements, and having a time limit. (running out of time just sends you back to the original starting point of the stage, though.)
* cursor occasionally hard to see against various features and background.

Overall, a generally enjoyable experience for chilling. Occasionally irritating when you miss a bunch of jumps/landings in a row, but overall decent.

For reference: I've completed the first three gardens, and unlocked about 6 gardens so far.

I bought this game on PS3 when it came out and still bought it here because the makers of this game deserve it.

If you are into music and wouldn't bother to have some jumping and swinging (and seeing beautiful worlds) while enjoying it, this game is definitely for you.
