Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet is a 2D side-scrolling action/adventure Metroidvania game with puzzle elements. Basically you fly around in a small flying saucer and solve small puzzles while fighting off enemies and gigantic bosses. As you travel through the shadow planet you will get new abilities that allow you to backtrack to previous areas to open new areas like any Metroidvania type game, though most of the collectibles you find by backtracking are concept art pieces and short movie clips.

The art style and music create a very nice atmosphere, and the controls are fairly smooth. Most of the special abilities you get are very creative and fun to use, my favorite being the buzzsaw. There's not a lot of tutorials or hints, but there's an objective marker and you get an info tool you can point at things to find out how to interact with them.

All-in-all it was a very good game in my opinion and it's only about 8 hours to play through the entire game and find all of the collectibles. I recommend picking it up sometime.

Excellent little Medtroidy style game about an alien and his saucer trying to save his world.

The game looks and plays amazingly. From the great environments to the many tools you gain in your quest.

The Multiplayer (although dead, it's super easy to start a game with friends) modes can also be played solo, and has a surprising amount of RNG and challenge that I feel is overlooked in this game.

The overall campaign is around 8-10 hours, but it's very enjoyable, and never feels tedius.

It used to be GFWL, but the Dev switched it all over to Steamworks so it doesn't die with the GFWL platform. (Thanks Devs!)

Definite, absolute buy!

For an indie game, this must have taken a lot of work because it really shows. The graphics are pretty standard but the art direction and effects are what the game is all about. All of the environments are decorated with amazing pieces, from enemies to awesome looking glowing things coming out of the walls. The boss battles are well thought out and the level design is pretty good. The ship you control is very cool. The weapons and items that you get to help you through the game are all very well thought out and fun to use. The sound is fitting and the music is moody and atmospheric. You fly around above water and underwater and the transition is very smooth. Nothing feels generic, it feels like a lot of time and care went into making this exactly how they wanted it. Am having a ton of fun with it the whole time so far.

8.5/10

I never put much thought into this game when first seeing it and having it gifted and sitting there in the Steam Library before for some time befor I ever thought to try it out. And I'm rather happy that I did. The game offers a neat space exploration idea with you avdenturing through the Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet and picking up weapons, upgrades and fighting massive bosses along the way. It has alot of creativity for the way each part of the planet feels different and artsy style of the game has some real charm to keep you attracted to not only your doing in the main game, but really feeling your tiny scale ship in such a massively scaled planet. It might not win game of year, but it delivers some great fun, creative puzzles and even a bit of multiplayer if you can get lucky to find more people online. Check it out if your ever curious. ^-^

Later,

This is a fun puzzle platformer, where you search for missing parts to your ship to help you interact with the world. The visuals are also fun and creepy at times.

This was a really fun short adventure/strategy game. It's kind of like a modern metroid except with a space ship and if Tim Burton were to be the creative director. It only took about 7 hours to complete.

A lovely game. Thoroughly enjoyable to play. The graphics are smooth and the artistry is beautiful. The puzzles are not too hard; I only had to look up help on one of them. A highly recommended purchase.

Very mysterious and intriguing game. Will give you just enough to make you want to explore every damn corner of the map. It's a very imaginative game, and it will tell you a story without a single word.

Beautiful.

All aspects of the game seem well thought-out and polished.

Manages to marry modern graphics and animation with old school 2D gameplay style, which I found refreshing as most recent 2D indie games are riding the retro pixel graphics wave.

I liked how there's not a word of in-game text or speech, no tutorials, yet it manages to communicate everything it needs to.

Where are the developers for this game? C'mon guys, support your software. ITSP has stopped working for a lot of people since the Games for Windows Live platform had to be gutted from the game. I've never gotten it to run once.

Apparently, the PC has logged 4.2 hours of background process as I was attempting to install this game. Pretty big fail so far.

Screenshots look beautiful, but I can't attest for them in game.

Why? I keep getting a black-screen when the game reaches its menu (after all the introductory videos). I can still hear and actually control the game, but I have a lot of trouble doing so since the screen is, well, black.

Yes, there is a workaround to this bug, but it requires me to delete all the cutscenes the game would have used to advance plot, essentially gutting the game. Uninstalled/reinstalled, verified integrity, nada. I've heard updating Windows Media Player will work too, but a game shouldn't require me to do that, much less delete its own cutscenes.

So: incomplete game, thumbs down.

I haven't enjoyed a dual stick game as much as this in a long time. Get it.

This is an exploration game, where you use a combination of skill and puzzle solving to get new tools and unlock new areas. Think Metroid Prime, but you're in a UFO, and it's 2D. You can scan objects to find out what can affect them and what they do, and use different tools in the same situations to get different effects.

It's a fun laid back casual game, but offers enough of a challenge for even the most seasoned of gamers.

I got this game as part of a bundle and installed it on a whim.

There's something about the graphics, music, little videos, I dunno what, but I was so enthralled and immersed in this game that I completely forgot to go on a date with a girl.

An actual girl.

I could, tentatively, recommend this game over the prospect of meeting a member of the opposite sex.

Tentatively.

This game... makes me so happy.
It's a beautiful game, and just... everything about it is awesome.
It's hard for me to describe, but it's sort of a discovery game, with puzzles in the enviorment.
There are deadly obstacles in the way as you go through the game, but it's nothing that a little patience and experimenting cannot solve.
I would recommend this game absolutely, to anyone. Take a look at the screenshots, and if it catches your eye at all, please give this game a chance.
