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.

Thought this was going to be a quick 100% achievement game seeing that there is only four achievements. Man, was I wrong. Even though the graphics are cute, the controls are absolutely terrible.

Oh wow, this game is terrible. Don't touch this one with a ten foot pole, folks. It controls terribly, and the "story" is a parody of itself. I like this game graphically, but I will not waste any more time on this piece of ♥♥♥♥.

Worst. Game. Ever. Made. "What, worse than Facebook games" you say? You have no idea, son. No idea...

All you people who keep buying Bad Rats as a joke gift for your mates really should buy and play this thing, it'll teach you what a REALLY bad game is like.

It's a nice game and has some interesting ideas like the very complex and badly explained shooting mechanics which allow for about 5 different kinds of bullets. The enemies are very overwhelming and hard to kill which is only more frustrating when you have to worry about dificult platforming. The level sometimes glitches out and doesn't end so you are stuck there until you lose all your lives.

I would have liked more context. Every level seems to be be "collect 2 gems" having no idea why collecting a gem is worth risking your life against a hundred enemies. It's a very pretty world made with a lot of care but I would apreciate it more if I felt I was doing something there.

It's also impossible to tell if you are damaging an enemy or they are immortal. Some enemies will follow you forever and take about 30 seconds to kill so you are forced to shoot anything you encounter for at least 30 seconds to find out if they can be killed. It is also very unfair since enemies will pop out of the ground beneath you making their attacks undodgeable and the platforming often has very little logic to it meaning a lot of trial and error and cheap deaths.

It's not unplayable but there are too many issues for me to recommend 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
