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

Yep... Well I now have over 7 hours on this game.
Can't say I'm proud of it.
Can't say I beat all the levels without the flags...
I'm close though!
Addicted and it makes me want to brake my mouse...
Hell yeah I recommend this.

8/10 Indeed quite a good game

Pros:
Level Editor
On the computer now (Because before it was on the PSP and other mobile devices)
Good soundtrack
eZ controls

Cons:
Semi-Impossible
Does not have a friendly relationship with Camtasia Recorder (fraps is fine though)
Makes you wanna smash your headphones in to a million pieces.

Overall the game is good and I recommend this game to people who enjoy playing games that make people mad and posting their reactions on YouTube. Like I did.

Overall, this is a simple and fun game that you can play and enjoy. However, I've become super frustrated dozens of times due to the fact that the object I'm controlling just randomly bugs out, causing me to fail. When I go to jump, he jumps super high for no reason, and I crash into a block above me. Other times, he doesn't jump at all. The first few times it happened, I thought to myself, "You know what, it was probably just me". However, it continued to happen over and over again, and upon restarting, the block would be freaking out in mid-air as the level starts.

As said before, this game is still fun and enjoyable, but it has some issues. I'd definitely pick it up on sale, though.

This is a pretty awesome game! I would recommend this game to people who want to kill time. Me, i'm a big fan of geometry dash and i love both games equally. Also the soundtrack is TO DIE FOR!!!

Probably my favourite game in the list of hyper-difficult platformers on Steam, The Impossible Game uses a simplistic art style with equally simple mechanics which work well together to create an enjoyable, addictive and challenging game, it also holds the "excellent soundtrack" trophy like many others of the same genre. The PC version also comes with a level editor which is a really nice addition and gives the game some more playability.

The objective is simple, jump, clear and doge oncoming obstacles and reach the end of the levels without dying. Sounds easy enough, but the short time window which you have to make your decision on whether or when to jump or not makes things incredibly difficult, though sometimes equally frustating.
The ability that you a trialed on the most is your reaction speed, a split second or blinking at the wrong moment is enough to cost you your progress in some cases. Honestly, this can sometimes feel unfair and gets annoying after so many attempts, but that's pretty much the name of the game, it's clear enough what you're getting into when you play something titled "The Impossible Game".

In some cases, but not frequently, the object you are controlling sometimes bugs out causing you to die and go back to the beginning for something that wasn't your fault, such as accidentally jumping twice. ignoring your jump command altogether or interacting with the obstacles the wrong way. This is the only thing about this game that I dislike, like which has been stated in many other reveiws. There is nothing more annoying than losing progress for something that isn't because of your own faults.

So with the occasional bugs aside, this is definitely a game to add to your collection if you are a fan of difficult platformers, it is definitely up there with Geometry, Super Meat Boy, Electronic Super Joy, Bit Trip Runer etc, it also has one of the best soundtracks around, so if this goes on sale, don't miss it.

This is a realy fun game and it's sort of like Geometry Dash on moble devices.Yet it has an option for music, but there is no music...I think it might be a bug or just a random option put for no reason.So i recomend people get this game if you don't have anger issues, get mad easily, or just plain people who blow the world up when they get mad.

This game is ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. I've destroyed my knuckles COMPLETELY and both my legs got a chance to go dead. I also caused a flesh wound in my hand from punching over and over and over...
BUTE... It's worth its' price.
