The next generation deserves a lot better 2D platformers than this, like Bubsy 2D III for instance.

Eternity's Child is an indie platformer made by unknown studio Silver Sphere. The story revolves around... I don't know. The game starts with an intro in form of wall of text that is scrolling, and it's scrolling pretty fast, you won't get enough time to read it.

So, let's speak about the story as how I felt it through the gameplay. You're something between bunny and elf, with emo bat-elf friend who is shooting laser balls. You are jumping through unique grotesque world full of weird mechanical enemies that are evil. To save the world, to get a heart of your lovely bat-elf and... whatever, you just collect gems with your girlfriend and shoot at mechs.

Let's talk about gameplay. It's praiseworthy the developers put their time into their own engine but it's not much praiseworthy that it plays terrible. You control movement with keyboard, shooting with mouse, nothing surprising, but the whole movement and jumping feels bad - you are now sure of platform edges and objects react with a lag.

Though the game is not even finished (and don't expect it'll ever be), it offers several levels that will make you ask your conscience for not doing anything else. It also has a level editor (beta), but I must admit, I didn't dare to try it.

If Eternity's Child was supposed to be an art project (with removed gameplay), it could end up being pretty nice and interesting "experience". The environment feels weird but that's definitely something positive I can tell about the game. Sadly, there is also some confusing visual design on places - there'll be too many things on the screen and you won't be sure what's supposed to be platform (to jump on) and what's just on the background.

Conclusion:
Overall, this is one of the worst platformers I've played lately, it has terrible gameplay and unfinished content. Unique visual style can't save it when everything else is bad. Don't even think about buying it.

Well, this one was my first game on steam almost 5 years ago, it was a nice looking game back then, they promised 2 extra chapters free of charge, everything was great... but after all these years i can say this game is one of the worst games on steam, the controls are not perfect but they are slow and don't respond properly, the level design is onw of the worst things i've seen, you're gonna die mostly for the bad programming and design other that your own fault, the enemies have the same movements on every level, so they become easy to avoid, some others are simply jump and avoid, the history is non existent, even the game asks weird questions or the chat it's incomprehensible, but most important... after all these years the Chapters 2 and 3 are not available so the game is incomplete without them, sorry but the only good thing is the art, it's pretty, that's for sure, but everything else it's really really horrible, it feels more like an alpha game and not like a full game, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME SPECIALLY AT IT'S FULL PRICE

Well, it is a pretty game. Sure do wish I could see more of it. Unfortunately, the cursor that is used for shooting on the only available level does not respond to the mouse movements; it merely jitters about while the character moves back and forth. I dig the painted, whimsical art style.
This should not be for sale anymore. It's been out since 2008, and hasn't had any fixes (that I'm aware of). I just tried playing it again, to little avail. Fell through platforms and couldn't hit much with the shoot-wherever-lady.
Eternity's Child is truly broken, and could not only use a re-visiting by the developer, but it probably needs to be taken down entirely from this and any other store. I can't believe the $4.99 price tag on it. I highly recommend you don't, either.

Wow, they actually left this game unfinished and cut their losses. It's not nearly as bad as most negative reviews state, but it is -pretty- bad. And, you know, incomplete, meaning there's a bunch of unbalanced levels and an unsatisfactory ending.
