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

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.

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.)

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 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.
