Its a short game play which you can complete in three hours, the boss fights are the same, and they don't give you a detailed story BUT it is still everybit worth your time. It gets progressively harder as you play and introduces a new mechanic to every level which keeps you constintly wanting to move forward, its absolutely gorgeous, and is only 2.49 right now! I wouldn't pay the full 10 bucks for it but it is way worth 2.49!

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! Unfortunately, it´s short (you can beat it in 3 ~ 4 hours).

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

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.)

Glare is a pretty neat little platformer with some interesting and fun game mechanics, the controls are pretty tight, and it has fairly nice graphics, but it somehow still manages to be somewhat bland. Glare doesn't offer much incentive to clean the planet of the darkness, the character shows no emotion (to be fair it is just light in a suit of armor, but still!), and the game really could have used some sort of narration to make the player care more about the planet they are sent to rescue.

The main issue I have with the game-play is that the boss fights are uninspired. Each boss is essentially the same, only with increasing numbers of standard enemies floating around the central thing you're trying to destroy in a small circular area where you just float about shooting. If you're going to make a platformer with clever platforming mechanics like snapping to lantern-like objects by using your light glaring power on them or zip-lining on beams of light, then why not use those cool platforming mechanics in a boss fight?

Another beef I had with this game was that you are supposed to look for hidden artifacts as a kind of bonus treasure hunt where you need to look at areas off the set path, however while doing this I accidentally ended up going back a much earlier area which I could not return from, and thus had to re-run the whole area... with all the enemies respawned. If you're going to make players search for hidden objects, don't make it so painful; it's meant to be a pleasure to run around looking for those things, not a tedious chore which could punish you for looking in the wrong spot.

I really wanted to like this game, but it just felt a little soulless and not enough incentive was given to push forward. You're supposed to be ridding the world of darkness, but all enemies respawn, and when you do get to a kind of a darkness-infected pool-thing, control is taken away from you and the game does the work for you. Comparatively, in "Waking Mars" I felt like I was doing meaningful work by terraforming Mars and making it habitable by planting alien plant-like lifeforms to create a stable ecosystem. Glare totally missed the mark on this front by not letting the player feel that they are making a difference by cleaning the darkness from the planet.

The final word?
If you want to save a planet, play "Waking Mars". If you want to play a pretty 3D-like platformer, play "Trine".
5/10 Would not illuminate.
