About the Game

Snapshot is the tale of a lone robot lost in an abandoned world. Armed with only his trusty camera, Pic sets forth on his great adventure. A camera might not seem like enough for a puzzle platforming adventure, but this camera is different from most: It has the ability to capture and remove from the world the very objects that it photographs. Not only that, but it can also use its powers to paste the photos it took back into the environment! Everything that the camera captures is perfectly preserved, and when the photos are restored the objects are restored with it. On top of all of that, this amazing camera can also rotate the photos before they're pasted. Take a picture of an incoming fireball, rotate it and paste it to send it flying into a wall of heavy boxes to knock it out of the way. See what kind of crazy things can happen to Pic with his awesome (and probably magical) camera during the adventure of his life!

Key Features:

  • A unique photography mechanic

Overlooked little puzzle platformer game. Now, I know the genre is kind of saturated and there's a lot of stuff going on when it comes to this type of games. Snapshot manages to be unique with simple but nice graphics, nicely scaling challenge, lots of stuff to do. It is definitely best idea to play this in small doses, like one set of levels per day, you just can't grind it unless you are hardcore. And somehow that's how it actually keeps you playing which gives it a good life cycle. Give it a shot every now and then when you are bored and someday you will finish it. There is no hurry. Just a few minutes for Snapshot. Again and again. Truly nice execution.

An excellent platformer with some tricky puzzles, although some of them can be infuriating. Worth sticking with :)

Very inovative take on the traditional platformer
Going for all fastest times can be a real fun and statisfying experience

With so many years of 2D platformer games to copy from, Snapshot ignores them and does it's own thing. Retro Affect makes something slightly original, yet I'm left preferring a floppydisk game from 1992 over this. The soundtrack is an uninspired copy of Jerry Martin's SimCity 3000, making the 400+MB game largely a waste of space. An interesting game, if not average.

Snapshot is an ok 2D puzzle platformer. The gimmick is being able to "snap" a picture of things and move them about. There are some fun puzzles but it's nothing spectacular. Worth playing if you like this type of game, but I wouldn't pay more than $1-$2.
