I don't feel my fingers after 7 hours inside of the Runner2 world.
That's the main reason why I am writing this review right now.I don't remember how long ago in the past I wasn't able to STOP playing a platformer game!
Why is this indie game so good?
Music is simply awesome, and I must admit, that I am not a fanatic or even fan of this type of "noises".
This soundtrack is wonderful and fits game perfectly. When you collect gold bars, or jump over enemies, a new bit arise.
After a short time you can "feel" that you can "touch" music with your character. (I am not on drugs!)
Who said, that indie game must be ugly? huh? show him to me!
I know this is not "top of the mountain", but in my personal opinion visual side of this game is better than good.
Difficulty level is not so high, but getting perfect+ scores is a seriously challenge sometimes (for your fingers).
Sense of humor dosed during gameplay is not too frequent and insolent, but in places where developers wanted to make you smile, for sure - a smile must appear on your face.
For me "BIT.TRIP Presents... Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien" is a best platformer I played in ages, and it's one of few indie games worth their full retail price.10/10 from me.
One last thing - do not even try to play this game on keyboard... gamepad is necessary. I hope mine will survive this game.
