I still enjoyed Glare despite that fact that it does nothing new. 7.8/10.

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.

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.
