I love this game! Shame it does not have more levels...! :(
Very relaxing game before you hit the first orb (don't know if I should call it that?)
The game movements go with the music rythm, and it's truly majestic to see it like that!

140 is a rhythm minimalistic platformer game.

Apart from minimalistic visuals and a great soundtrack, you have: Three initial levels, in each one there are checkpoints that add a beat to the current music, while also presenting a new gameplay mechanic, at the end of each level there's also a boss battle. This game is short, but mostly hard, especially after you finish the first three levels, since then, you'll unlock the same levels, but mirrored and without checkpoints (yup, including boss battles) which is why most people never get to beat those.

Very short but fun indie game with an excellent soundtrack, and a few unique 'boss fights'

It's pretty typical / generic as platformers go, but I was still invested throughout most of the game due to it's colorful palette and score. Worth the hour of your time you'll spend playing it.

A rhythm platformer. Quite a short minimalist game, but lots of fun. Shows that you don't need a lot of fancy graphics to have engaging play. The mirrored levels towards the end, though, are HARD! You do have to be able to handle lots of movement and colours, may not be a good game if you're epileptic. But otherwise, worth checking out.

Quite short (beat in under an hour), and never really fully explores its own mechanics. There was a lot of waiting involved, and I never really felt satisfied completed the stages. It pulls of a great visual and audio style, sadly I feel the actual platforming fall short.

Buy this game if you want to feel like a newborn:
"Shapes!" "Colors!" "Weird sounds!" "Waaaah!"
This was pretty much my reaction - and I like to imagine that this is similar to a thought-process of a baby.
(Except you could add for a child "Breasts!" - I am sure google can help you with this point, there are no breasts in game.)

Don't buy this game if you have epilepsy.

So, what is 140? It is a minimal, abstract platform game. Aside from that, it is a really cool platform rhythm game. The levels start out "simple" the music isn't too complicated. As you get to checkpoints, more complex rhythms are put into the soundtrack and these make other things happen: blocks appear and disappear, shapes grow and shrink, static fields jump, bouncy floors activate, gravity shifts. Paying attention to the music and how it affects the level is crucial to finishing. At the end of each level there is a boss fight. Each level the boss fights get more complex.

Once you have finished the game three mirror levels open up. One wrong move and you fail - you must complete the entire level without dying. And all the patterns are backwards. Yeah right.

Fun but short platform game.

PROS:
- Intro.
- Beat.
- Music.
- Rhythm.
- Mechanics.
- Graphics.
- Design.
- Visual.
- Outro.

CONS:
- Mirror levels can give you hell if you suck.

Final Remarks:
Don't let the extremely simplistically minimalistic visuals deceive you.
140 isn't just yet another indie game; it's pure art.
No need for more explanation; play it.
You are welcome.

140 is a true work of art. It conveys a level of emotion rarely seen in videogames, and yet there's no text throughout, making it very immersive. Instead of having things explained to you, you have to rely on the music to guide you, which is quite hypnotizing. It'll take you only about an hour to complete and will leave you speechless. I have never been so moved by a videogame before. 10/10

140 is a rhythm based minimalistic platformer, made by one of the developers of Limbo. The music is superb and it's very nicely interwoven with the gameplay. The changes in the soundtrack when you reach certain parts of the levels makes for a vibrant experience. The main downside of this game is its length, it should have had more content. If you like rhythm games and platformers, don't hesitate to pick this one up!
