Erstens: Es ist ein gutes und einigermaßen schweres Spiel (der letzte Level war die größte Herausforderung)

Zweitens: Story? Gibts nicht! Man rennt durch die Levels, ballert sich durch die paar Monsterchen und dann hat man noch kleinere "Rätsel".

Dritter und letzter Punkt: Ich habe für das Game 2 Stunden und ein paar Minuten gebraucht. Leider zu wenig aber länger hätte ich es sowieso nicht durchgehalten.


Für zwischendurch auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert (aber auch nur, wenn das Game im Angebot ist!)

Really nice and beautiful platformer. If you like games with modern graphics and oldschool platform mechanics, you can´t go wrong getting this one! Good music, too!

When I began playing Glare, my initial impression was of a competent and polished platformer that, while pleasant, was unremarkable. However, the more I played, the more my expectations were defied—not suddenly, all at once, but gradually as the game continued to add new moves to my repertoire and gently ramped up the complexity of the challenges to which I needed to apply them. In the end, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this game.

The action here is kinetic as you fly down ziplines and hurl yourself between floating launchers while avoiding brambles, spikes, and lava. You regularly stop to fight off enemies, but later in the game you often have to deal with them on the move or while in a precarious position, like in the middle of a delicate wall cling maneuver. You come to navigate obstacles while moving with great speed, intuiting what you need to do next on the fly. It feels good.

The stages do not simply progress from side to side but lead you in all directions through intricately crafted, occasionally clever level design, facilitated by a camera that pans and angles around the pretty 2.5D environment with careful scripting. Although your path sometimes loops back across itself pleasingly after you gain a new ability, this is a thoroughly linear game, not a Metroid descendant.

Every time I expected Glare to do something lazy, it surprised me and did something fun instead. After passing a few rock barriers that were colored differently from the ones that I could break with my bomb attack, I was prepared to find a simple upgrade to that move; instead, an effect was added to my slide, which meant that I had to find the right way to use terrain if I wanted to smash through those rocks. Then I found situations in which I was required to chain my slide to break multiple barriers, and soon I was burning through sloped corridors filled with ineffectual enemies that were there just so that I could enjoy tearing through them with this screw attack analogue. Instead of just giving me the key to this lock, the game added a wrinkle that affected everything.

That's what it's like. It does the fun thing. Glare is not some amazing, must-play game, but it also never meant to be; it just wants to be a good platformer. And it really is.



(Note: Steam failed to record my play time. I completed Glare in one sitting over the course of about 2 1/2 hours, so disregard the stated play time.)

Really well put together platformer. Beautiful environments, fun mechanics and good pacing. Overall recommended. Controller support does seem a bit iffy, but keyboard/mouse works great as well.

Short, but very neat platformer that gets progressively more complex as you glide through the beautiful levels. This game is an experience.

I finally started playing a little bit of this tonight. Just beat the second boss. So far this is literallly the most perfect platformer I have ever played. The music is beautiful and soothing and keeps me relaxed through the challenging parts even though I have gotten frustrated a couple times at myself sucking.

I'll have more impressions to share about it in the future I'm sure.

Very simple and fun. Graphics are nice. However, I'm not sure what the hell the story was about.
Got it for free from IGN, so I'm happy with it.

RECOMMENDED.
Beautiful graphics, smooth action.
Very original platformer.
Harder to play with keyboard and mouse but, still good enough.
To don't go frustrated, use a keypad.
For in-between times.

Zen. Very zen.

It's kinda sonicish towards the end - lotsa gota go fast stuff, though much easier, with some minor progression (has upgrades, tho they are all simple and unmissable).

Well worth the 0$ I paid for it (thx IGN Prime)

Not sure if it's worth 10 bucks though, given it's litterally about 1 to 1.5 hours long. Maybe 2-3 if your bad at platformers, or possibly under 45min if your very good at them. Definetely worth say 5 tho if its on sale or something, as its a fun hours distraction.

Does have some replay value with some achievements and collectables, but none were very compelling to me, so the 1hr (+30ish min idle time) I gave the game is all its gonna get.

The game is advertised as having "Full controller support" yet only the buttons on my Logitech F710 work in the game. The analog sticks and D-pad do not work, meaning I can't even move the character. Sad, because the game looks great and I bought it in hopes I'd get to play. This was in December 2013. I've tried playing several times since then, and the game is still broken. If you're the kind of gamer who can play sidescrollers on a keyboard, go for it - don't let this review hold you back. But as a gamer who prefers to sit on the couch with a gamepad, I buy many games that are advertised as having support for controllers. It really sucks when they don't actually have the support they claim to.
