140 is a short yet very fun game. It starts mysterious, gives no instructions, lets you learn by experimenting.

My only complaint: the last boss is so hard it's almost ridiculous. Compared to the other bosses and levels, it's like you suddenly started playing a different game altogether.

Nice casual game. Worth it, especially during sales.

This is a wonderful rhythm platformer in a minimalist style. I especially appreciated the challenge provided by the 3x hidden achievements. Not a game I'll soon forget.

Amazingly good yet amazingly tough and amazingly abstract and amazingly great music.

I think that just about sums it up.

I'm not a very good platform player, I have always sucked at super mario and those games, but this game was very enjoyable for me to play and the save points are very forgiving for a person like me. I really enjoyed the music and the game was short enough for me to beat in a few hours. I am very proud of beating this platformer and I think this is a good introduction to people who aren't very good at them.

This is a very clever game and highly enjoyable, well worth it if you can get it on sale :D

A Good Price

Not much more to explain here. I recommend moving to the beat while you play, it makes it easier.

This is a very well put together platformer game. The music goes perfect with the obstacles, and the controls are smooth. This was one of the most difficult games for me to get all the achievements for, but working on the levels was very enjoyable, and finally beating the mirror levels was extremely satisfying. The only Cons are that there are no cards, and no special ending for beating mirror mode. 9.5/10

Whoever had the idea of making the mirror levels without any checkpoint deserves some medical attention.

Cordialy.

So I spent 2 years trying to complete this game, trying to get the achievements. I've grown to love this game, and hate it at times too.

This isn't just your typical rhythm platformer, but it's one that's filled with bright colours, pleasing aesthetics, and above all music that feels as though it's as much a part of the game as the ground, enemies, or player character are. The game will captivate you with it's charm, all the while making sure it's got you tightly enough that dying at particularly hard chokepoints don't scare you off.

It has a good learning curve, though seems to stop short of it's full potential. The 3 levels of the game are well designed, but can be quick to punish you if you are impatient. Of course, the checkpoints make sure you have a chance to attempt the hard parts very quickly again.

The mirror levels are the frustration point for the completionists, and where I feel the real challenge lies. You do the same 3 levels as before, but the opposite way and no checkpoints - if you die you go back to the level select. The game will punish you again and again, and only reward you for persistence, patience, and practice.

Overall I love 140. And I'm sad that I'm not going to be able to continue trying to beat it.

Great game. Absolute synaesthesia. I marked it down as possibly not my style when I got it in one of the Humble "Eye Candy" bundles, because usually those have poor gameplay. Boy was I wrong.
If you like music (check), particularly electronic music (check) and excellent game design, you Must check out this game.

It's the only game I've played where the music is the game - some have tried and failed, such as Bittrip Runner (music not great, gameplay a little on the idiotic side), but in this one, the music really reflects what's happening. It's fantastic.

The price is right too. It's short, but I can see myself replaying it (the mirror levels) in 6 months when I've forgotten it enough to get a kick out of it!

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.

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!

And you will continue failing until your brain is rewired in a way that the game controls. And you and the rythm will be one. And only then, 140 you will feel.
