A wonderful metroidvania about a meddling spaceship with a fluid, tactile control scheme.

The gameplay is exactly like it looks in the demo vids.
If you're even remotely interested in it, get this game.
It is a shame it wasn't on Sega Genesis years ago.

..it's like r-type and super metroid had a baby, and that baby was raised on oddworld.

9/10, one point deduction due to technical difficulties..

The graphic design is good but the ♥♥♥♥ thing is the missle control. I have to direct the fxxking missle through a long long long and twisted route to attack a switch, and such a puzzle is abusolutely designed to nauseate players! I almost broke the control stick of my gamepad! Deleted the game and never try it again!

Metroid-like game with flying saucers, good aliens and evil Corruption.

PROS: Graphics, music. boss fights.
CONS: irritating puzzles with remote controlled missiles, trivial plot.

This is about as fun and quirky that twin stick shooters can get. Engaging graphics, imaginative levels and cut-scenes that stay interesting. The different game modes are great, its just a shame that you can't play campaign mode as co-op a la Pixel Junk Shooter. But definitely recommended.

Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet follows the Metroidvania formula well with a diverse selection of weapons, all of which suit the theme and present new options both for exploration and for combat. The world is almost entirely open and gates that can only be unlocked with new weapons pop up from the beginning. The map clearly shows what has been explored and what hasn't and can even note the weapon needed for a particular gate. It's all here, save the fun. There's just too much frustration to allow fun to flourish. Enemies respawn at surprising rates which would be fine if it was any fun to shoot them. Past the first time realizing that a new weapon would be better used on this enemy or that, fighting is a chore. The often narrow, obstacle-fulled corridors would be more at home in a puzzle-platformer which Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet very nearly is, and would be better for being. The two co-op modes - a feature that should be an absolute boon for such a short game - doesn't help with that either. They both emphasize the worst elements of the game by adding more combat and forcing the player to cart something around for the entire mode, a mechanic that only serves to point out how finicky the grabber arm is. Both modes also feature a timed element and remove all the enjoyable exploration and permanent advancement that made the main campaign so close to being something great in the first place. And there is something great hiding in Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet. Sadly, it's just too buried under layers and layers of poor execution to really shine.

This is a fun and fairly straight-forward game of adventure and exploration. It is not too difficult but provides enough to be exciting.

Despite claiming "music from Dimmu Borgir", only two songs appear and they are far from the whole studio versions. They play only when unlocking small bits of story background, and after completing the game. There is ambient music throughout the game, but it is not by Dimmu Borgir.

This game, like so many of Microsoft Studio's ports to PC, is very fluid and solid. I've never had any crashes while playing it on any hardware. The game itself is an excellent Metroidvania style puzzler, with beautiful vector-based backgrounds. You can fly from the getgo, something that other games of the aforementioned style (often) introduce near the end of the game, but here there's all kinds of puzzles that use the 360 degree control methodology to be completed.

Some of the puzzles do get a bit tedious, and the music/sound effects can also get a bit reptitive but all and all, definitely recommended.

I honestly enjoyed the multiplayer more than the game itself. It didn't give me the same satisfaction as other ''metroidvania'' games did. Probably because the game was a bit too easy and the combat wasn't something to write home about.

But still, I enjoyed it for what it was. And the game being short is a strong point (little to no filler).

Get it on sale.

I really love playing this game, so far I only played campaign.
But that is enough for me to say, if you love puzzle games, buy this game.
It's puzzles are not that hard, but some are pretty difficult imo.
The game is very straight forward.

Definitely a must-buy for puzzle lovers and players who liked VVVVV!

I was surprised by this game. It delivered very well in all categories (story, gameplay, environments, music). The music and environmental art were set perfectly together for each 'area' and it really felt like you were in the game's world. I enjoyed the enemies and puzzles thrown at me as they were well thought out and felt intelligent. The gameplay felt diverse amongst the different abilities you could choose from and all controls were intuitive with the controller (as I believe this game was originally designed for xbox). The story was minimalistic and the short cutscenes were effective in keeping you hooked.

One issue I had with the game was that there was absolutely no help text in the game. At times, I just couldn't figure out what to do. For this I will give this game a 8.9/10. It is a fantastic game as long as you consult external help when stuck.

Nice design and gameplay; wished the story was a little bit more dense here - it feels most of the time more like arcade/puzzling in style. But nevertheless I can recommend playing it ;-)

Un pianeta oscuro pulsante di vita aliena, meccaniche di gioco semplici ed efficaci, ritmo incalzante e realizzazione stilistica impeccabile.
In due parole: Gioiellino Indie.

PS: l'unica pecca (forse) è una relativa facilità, compresi i boss che si battono in pochi minuti.

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.

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.

Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet is notorious for two reasons. First and most obvious is absolutely glorious visual style by Michel Gagné; it’s dark, macabre, slightly frightening, but at the same time truly beautiful and not repulsing even by a tiny fraction despite all of the picturing of those tentacles and insect-like creatures. Second prominent feature is the protagonist. You see, despite all the variety of settings and worlds and stories a hero in metroidvania usually is a human, or at least some humanoid. But here you play as small flying saucer; so technically there’s still some humanoid inside. Obviously it impacts gameplay turning it into twin-stick shooter and omitting platforming with all it’s precision jumping and running. What it has instead is all different kinds of guns and devices that our UFO can use. Among them there are not only assorted lasers and blasters, but also a buzz-saw, a grappling claw, protective shield and so much more. So you fly around, shoot stuff and sometimes solve some puzzles. They’re neither challenging nor time consuming, but their presence is enough to transform what could be a blazing gun carnage into an exploration of beautiful yet twisted and insane world.
Speaking of which, there may be not a lot of variety on the first sight, but there surely is distinct difference on what kind of thrill you can expect from different game zones. There’s soothing calm of ice zone disturbed only by pesky and ubiquitous enemies; there’s tension of mandatory underwater level; and then there’s those enigmatic factory and all those different yet very familiar regions of the Shadow Planet. It’s not just bland similarity, but rather a true sense of interconnectivity that is the result of this distinct visual style of minimalistic mix of black shadows and pure-color backgrounds. This world doesn’t look or feel artificial, it’s as natural as a background for digital entertainment can get. It’s complete and interconnected; it feels solid, ready to be explored by a curious traveler, who’s on a mission to restore it, rather than just tear it apart.
And because of its small size and simple story the game forms an intimate bond with the player. It’s not a feeling of attachment but rather a sense of lasting mutual sympathy. If anything, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet in a short few hours that you need to finish it accomplishes the task of teaching you a handful of interesting tricks while giving just enough time and space to toy with them to your amusement. Facing new challenge most of the time you either will know the solution right out or will figure it out faster than frustration kicks in. And that is not something easy to do, when an average gamer has an attention span shorter than one of a goldfish. Not that the game is a cakewalk from start to finish; there are bosses, you see. And they have all their bossy stuff: attack patterns, heavy attacks and weak points, that you’ll have to figure out to exploit them. So you’ll maybe even fail a few times while dealing with them.
Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet makes you feel invested without caring to present itself believable or even needing that for that matter. It’s a fiction that works on sheer kinetics and aesthetics; it doesn’t tell a story, it makes you perform it. The game simply unfolds with elegance and simplicity of a pop-up book and gives you the keys to the entrance.

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.

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

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!
