PLEASE READ:

This game is basically AMAZING. I beated it like 10 times some years ago on PSP and I was very happy when I heard it came to Steam.

But now I feel disappointed since this PC version is BAD. AND THAT'S THE ONLY REASON I'M THUMBING IT DOWN. THE GAME IS GOOD, BUT THE PC VERSION IS BAD.

I'm not even sure the game runs at 60fps. Sometimes items get kinda buggy and there has been many times already that I failed because of that and not proper mistakes. Moreover the game seems to get more buggy if you run it windowed.

Another issue is that the game crashes after playing for some time.

So basically it's kinda impressive how such a minimalistic game can get this broken.

I don't know guys. I really want to recommend this game because as a side-scroller it's a very interesting title... soundtrack is awesome, levels are cool, and you can practise them which is something that many games like this one don't have. But I'm not gonna recommend it unless they fix that basic stuff that actually didn't occur in PSP.

They don't call it the Impossible Game for nothing. Hardest platformer ever built, and I blew through Super Meat Boy and Electronic Super Joy 7/10

The Impossible Game for Steam is seriously worth giving up a subway sandwich.

The PC port is damn near excellent, giving me a smooth 60fps, and the controls feel very tight so I know it was my fault when I messed up. Also amazing is how well designed the four levels are, every jump feels like it requires precise timing and the music syncs up to them fairly well. And even if somehow you manage to complete all of the levels, there's still the infinite amount of custom levels created by the community ready to be downloaded. The level editor is a little tricky to work with, and syncing music to your track is easier said than done. Plus, the only way to test your level with the music playing in the background is from the very begining. Because of this, if you have one specific part you want to test to see how well it plays with the music, you have to play through the entire god-damn level to figure it out. I would suggest a "Test from this point" button of some sort added in. Other than this though devs, you have yourself a great port!

ALSO ♥♥♥♥ THIS ♥♥♥♥ING ♥♥♥♥TY ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ING GAME AND IT'S ♥♥♥♥ING ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ IT ♥♥♥♥ING SUCKS MASSIVE ♥♥♥♥ING ♥♥♥♥ I HATE THIS GAME JESUS HENRY CHRIST IT'S SO HARD GOD.

Undoubtedly one of the most amazing 'simple' games I've played. Soundtrack is outstanding and the game is very satisfying to play.

I hate this game.

I hate it but I still play it.

I don't know the reason why I continue playing it because all I hear is the first 30 seconds of the level soundtrack.

Is it because all I do is just jump? A puzzle jumping platformer that's so easy yet so hard and yet so.....

ARGHHHH ASDASDWADADAWF....

WHAT IS IT WITH YOU PEOPLE AND SPIKES???

...

...

Buy it, It is frustratingly good for some reason.

And I dont know why.

For a game currently worth $5.00, it will definitely go a long way.

Already an hour into the game and I still can't beat level one. I must say it is really harder than I saw on gameplay videos.

Really though, please try this game, it really will kill the time (and your sanity), like I said, every penny is worth it.

(Eventually I beat level 1, took me more than almost 2 hours, not in one sitting though.)
