This is a long review so if you just want a brief summary of why I recommend Pid skip to Results and read from there.
Might and Delight creates an epic platformer that combines puzzles and combat to propose an amazing experience. Pid is a game with a difficulty curve that borderlines abuse, puzzles that push the mind and skill to levels unheard, and secrets abound.Story:
A small boy known as Kurt has a regular day at school, but the bus-ride home is where the adventure really begins. Kurt falls asleep finding himself waking up on a weird little planet, which no one has come to or left for over 350 years. Stumbling upon a magical orb Kurt becomes connected to the planet and is the boy who must solve its mysteries and return it back to its former glory. With a fascinating story, and wonderful character development this game will keep you gripped.Campaign:
The campaign is about eight hours long, depending on your skill and the difficulty choice. I played on Normal for the campaign, thinking it wouldn’t be too challenging. Well I was definitely wrong; Pid is a difficult game which pushes boundaries. If you try to get all the secrets you will most likely rip out most of your hair. The campaign combines puzzle solving, action, and an amazing physics engine. Pid combines such elements as collecting items, pushing switches, carrying keys, manipulating gravity wells, spike traps, and much more. There are multiple bosses throughout the campaign one that are entirely fighting, one that combines both puzzles and combat, and even one that is just puzzle solving. The bosses push your mind and skill as each one requires unique approaches for victory. Gameplay:
Pid starts out with you obtaining a special orb that allows you to create gravity wells that push you in some direction. You must use these gravity wells in order to complete objectives, defeat enemies, and race across levels. You will fight enemies who shoot rockets, lasers, or even shine spotlights that for some reason cause you to lose. You acquire items throughout the campaign that allow you to push through the campaign: crank boxes (that confuse robots), explosives, timed explosives, laser grids, armor, hyper beams, gravel, and more. Results:
Pid is an awesome platformer that combines puzzle solving and combat to produce an invigorating experience. The game pushes you against spike traps, bottomless pits, rockets, and laser grids. You have to utilize special beams to launch yourself through the levels, but sometimes the surfaces don’t allow you to use your ability. You must combine strategies and tactics in order to complete the levels and solve the puzzles. Pid makes for an amazing and incredibly challenging experience that really puts you to the test.
