This game has a very nice and beautiful atmosphere to it and is charming in quite a few ways, but it's rather difficult to see enjoyment in it when it is as challenging as it is. There are things about this game that I like, but I found myself getting rather frustrated at certain points that require more or less an exact number of button pushes at the most perfect time to be able to pass them. In other words, though I appreciate the themery of the game, it doesn't pair up well with the demands of how perfectly timed every single one of your button pushes have to be.

Great Indie Platformer that takes you on a grand adventure. The soundtrack is just as good as the game itself.

When I first launched the game, I (as many others) noticed that you don't have direct control. I was a little dissapointed, but I still proceeded. And I'm glad I did. I like puzzles and challenges, and the puzzles in this game can be very hard. They wouldn't be with direct control, so I can see why the developer took away conventional controls, player sees the puzzle, thinks it's hard based on other games' controls, but when he/she tries to solve it, the controls come to play, and that's when it gets difficult. Along with unique controls, the game has cute, semi-realistic art style, and SO beautiful soundtrack. Music in games is under-rated in most AAA and big company games, but not in most indie games. And in this game, the soundtrack is so calming, relaxing, happy... Words cannot describe how wonderful soundtrack in this game is.

So, not for people who don't like puzzles, and for some players it may get a little repetitive, but for people like me, it's one of te best games in past few years.

I've not played lots of this. But what I have played, has impressed me. I'm not big on puzzle-platformer types, but I adore this game regardless.

The Soundtrack is absolutely wonderful. It's so ambient and it REALLY fits the game. It genuinely makes you feel like you're solving a puzzle. There's some interesting, occasionally creepy sound-effects [childrens laughter] that definitely adds to the very odd atmosphere. There's no real way to decribe the kind of atmosphere it generates. It's simply unique.

The Artwork/Aesthetic. It's gorgeous. Vibrant colour themes and pleasant contrasts. It's quite simply an interesting game to look at.

The gameplay is, not really for me. The game can get difficult very quickly, which is always an issue with puzzle-platformers. Certainly some levels are more intuitive than others. But it consistently provides a challenge. I imagine, at higher levels, it must feel fantastic to glide through the levels executing each move required perfectly. Sadly, I very rarely - often accidentally - replicate this feeling. It's usually the moment I realize how fluid the game feels that I die! The main issue for me is that when you do die, it really slows the gameplay. What is fluid when executed perfectly feels sluggish when you die, as you often re-spawn stationary, or with little momentum.

But I can't stress enough how polished it is, especially for an indie title. There's some lovely written commentary provided in-game as you pass certain obstacles. If you love puzzle-platformers and unique games, you'll like this game. Even if you don't, I'd argue it's worth buying for the soundtrack and aesthetic in-game. It's simply beautiful. Fully recommended.

Element4l is a simple-looking but darn-difficult platformer with lots of charm and some great music.

The game is split into four parts in which your goal is to traverse various levels by combining the four elements. The elements comprise of a heavy boulder (Earth), a speedy spark (Fire), a block of ice (Water), and a bubble of air (Air).

The controls are simple but difficult to master. You basically need only four buttons to play - up, right, down, left. Both keyboard and x360 gamepad worked for me, but keyboard seems to be more responsive and lets you time your actions more precisely.

Graphics are elementary ;) but cute. There are some cutscenes but they were rendered in lower resolution than the rest of the game; they also didn't bring anything new to the game.

Found no bugs, the game played like a charm.

Overview

As much frustration as this game gets, the design and physics of using all element to reach your goal is quite amazing. Yes, it may not be for everyone, but it test your patience to think logically compare to other indie platformer. I had to turn easy mode on through settings in order to do some part as it was quite difficult with the default settings, but even that was quite challenging.

I would recommend this game, but not to anybody.

Pros :
- I do like the little comments you can read throughout the journey
- Graphics and music are OK, in fact I thought the game was a relaxing one at the beginning
- the rules are simples : you move by changing yourself into another element, with arrow keys. It can be disturbing at the beginning, but then it's okay

Cons :
- Good game for rage quiting... The levels are far far too difficults, even in "easier" mode (aka "this is too difficult for me")
- Finding and getting losts soulsparks ? impossible !! as it can be difficult to reach the way out...
- this game requires strong agility skills : if you change yourself too early or too late... you'll die (or you'll be stuck)

Thus, I would recommend this game for those who do love challenging and difficult game.

A shame this game doesn't get more attention. It's beautifully done in both gameplay and atmosphere. The soundtrack is bloody amazing and goes along really well with the game.

It's not really long, then again, it's just got the right length in my opinion ... it doesn't overstay its welcome. You control a character (or rather 4) which can switch between fire, water (ice), earth (stone) and air (bubble). You race the tracks/levels with your character and need to switch quickly between the 4 forms in order to gain speed (as an ice cube), jump over cliffs (as fire ball), ascend (as an air bubble) and roll down hills or destroy obstacles (as stone). Since some of the tracks are really fast paced you will have some tough passages to overcome. Thankfully the checkpoints are well placed. It's really like TRIALS but in cute, haha. But like in Trials you want to finish the track withouth 'dying' and reach the end in one go.

A relaxing piece of gaming entertainment with a great atmosphere. Fair price, especially since you get the OST with the purchase of the game as well. What I liked especially were the comments of the developer which pop up occasionally in the game. Movie references and overall fun comments.

10/10 control a cute Super-Skrull to rule the tracks

EDIT: I forgot to mention that besides its fluffy cute look, it's beastly hard and quite challenging at times. However, all the whining in certain reviews and therefore negative ratings don't do ELEMENT4L justice - it's very doable and a lot of fun.

This game is a nice pastime, but you have to enjoy (almost) fixed paths and having to push the right buttons at the right moment. It is well done, but not really my kind of game.

Really relaxing platformer. The ambient music and sound combined with the easy on the eyes visuals make sure even struggling on certain areas remains a nice experience. The mechanics aren't too complex; simple, yet deep enough that the game is engaging and fun. Definitely pick it up some time.

Gierka bardzo ciekawa i fajna. Masz na celu pokonanie planszy przy użyciu 4 żywiołów w postaci lodu, płomyka, bąbelka i kamyczka. Grafika miła dla oka. Warto spróbować ;)
