The game is just incredible. It has a poor story, but it doesnt matter, since the game focuses on visuals, which are incredible. You can hardly find any creature plant or anything twice. The Artist who made it is a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ genius God bless this man :D. Also the gameplay is challenging but not frustrating. Some puzzles are easier or harder what makes sure that you wont get stuck somewhere. Its a where calm game perfekt for chilling out, but it also contains some shooting stuff, so it fits every mood. Only thing that lacks is that nobody wants to play this online, and the COOP mode is awsome, too bad i have to play it alone :c

We've been waiting for this game since it came out exclusively XBLA to arrive on PC and now we've been waiting even longter for it to finally remove GFWL. Now we got that, too!

ITSP is a Metroidvania-type game where you control a flying saucer through an... well, an insanely twisted shadow planet! You gain new abilities and have to backtrack to other locations where your new ability will come in handy. The visual aesthetics are comical yet not ridiculous, the sound design is quite intense. The game's cutscenes feature music by Dimmu Borgir, whereas the background music is more atmospheric yet not less fitting.

All in all a very engaging experience, some may consider it short, yet intense none the less. Recommended!

Awesome game, first game in a while that had me wanting to play non-stop, and over a weekend knocked out the campain in probably 20 hrs. Really fun side-scroller with action and puzzle elements.

This is just a great game. The visuals and ambient sounds are amazingly well done. There are plenty of puzzley parts that require some actual thought on what to do, and which upgrade to use. It reminds me of Metroid, but flying in a ship instead of hoofing it. You get lots of different upgrades to progress as well as open up areas in places you've already explored. My only complaint is that it is too short. I finished the game in about 7-8 hrs, plus another hour to find the remaining upgrades which weren't required to beat the game.
