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
  • Over 100 different levels of platforming and puzzling.

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.

The game had an interesting game mechanic that appealed to me - taking a 'snapshot' of an object to use later on. In the beginning it was delightful to use the 'snapshot' ability to solve puzzles, do some simple platforming, and perform simple tricks. The graphics are simple. As far as I've seen, the narrative is purely visual - no text or voice acting.

As the game progresses, the platforming puzzles become increasingly complex and interesting. The puzzles were creative and varied. However, the actual platforming gets tedious and frustrating. I loathed the many puzzles that required double jumping on a spring using the 'snapshot' ability.

I would recommend playing this game in small sessions over a long period of time. I found more enjoyment when I played a few levels at a time, stopping when the platforming became frustrating.

The idea - using snapshots of items in the world to move them - is great, but it's ultimately ruined by boring and frustrating jumping puzzles.

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 partly 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.

Creative, but horribly uninteresting.
