Never (before how) have I quit and unistalled a game only 90 minutes into playing it. This game has charm and excitement, and each level is interesting and challenging. Unfortunately, its good points are horribly overshadowed by the difficulty and requirement for split-second timing. To say that this game suffers from being too finicky, is an understatement.

Do not play this game unless you have either the reaction time of a fighter jet pilot, or more patience than Ghandi.

Since the recommendation compares Ethan: Meteor Hunter to Braid, I bought it hoping for challenging and well-designed puzzles, but the challange and the difficulty of this game comes solely from jumping on and over things at the right time. As far as puzzles go, you can freeze time and rearrange some parts of the area you are in, but it is not too hard to figure out what you need to do and when you need to do it. The platformer part, on the other hand, is frustratingly hard, and you can't make it easier by being smart with the puzzles. After the first couple of levels, I can't even get from checkpoint to checkpoint without dying a million times, which simply prevents me from enjoying this game at all.

On the whole, I don't recommend the game for it's original price, especially if you'd buy it for the puzzles. If you like difficult platformers, you might like it though.

If you want a fun, cute and quite challenging platformer game, look elsewhere. If you want a game that's harder than most men in the morning, this'd be for you. I wanted the former.

Nuff said.

Nice game but cannot decide whether it's a fast paced action platformed or a puzzle platformer. Unfortunatelly, laggy controls it has only work for the latter and as soon as you get to the first boss fight it becomes real pain to play it.

When I first started playing this game, I found it to be just kind of mediocre, not that bad but not anything special and not worth recommending. But the cracks really started to show after extensive play... not 100% done with the game yet but I'm annoyed enough to write a negative review right now so woo~

Hmm what problem should I address first.
How about the slippery edges and dropped jumps? Yeah, any edge of a platform seems to not count as part of the platform for jumping's sake, so often you'll end up not jumping when you wanted to and, presumably, dying. This doesn't feel like my fault. It feels like an error in the game engine. Dropped jumps are even more noticeable on downhill slopes, where there always seems to be a high chance of jumping not working if you aren't sliding (which you don't always want to be doing).
Another major problem is the homing cannons, since, well, that's already a bad idea to begin with. Bad game. Bad, bad game. Often they're shoehorned into sections that don't need them, though, and the homing power is waaaaay way way too strong, leading to it often coming down to luck whether or not you can survive a section.
There's also a lot of slooow autoscrolling sections that go on way too long, yet require a few tight, easy-to-mess-up jumps such that you can get all the way to the end of the section, screw up, and have to restart it. And some sections go on waaay too long. A lot of the levels are good about keeping decent checkpoint placement and level length but there are also plenty of exceptions.
The physics also seem somewhat inconsistent, to the point where there are more than a few cases where a puzzle solution working correctly comes down mostly to luck. Not horribly inconsistent, and there aren't a lot of puzzles that have this issue; mostly any puzzles involving rolling objects.
The overall pacing of the game is a bit wonky too. The higher-speed platforming doesn't mix with the puzzles well so the end result is a platformer that occasionally slows gameplay to a halt with a sliding block puzzle or a tedious autoscroll puzzle. The puzzle and platformer elements often exist in entirely separate universes, mostly. It's not a blend of the two genres, it just does them both at diferent times. There are instances of high-speed puzzle platforming that tends to be the more enjoyable parts of the game, but they're infrequent compared to the slower puzzles.
The bosses (that I've seen so far) are also mostly trial and error, which is... not fun. When you know what to do, they're utterly simple and nonthreatening but when you don't they're frustrating to try and figure out; the second boss is simplified once you know his full pattern but a bit tricky until you do... and notably this boss is one of those instances of SUDDENLY PUZZLE in the middle of a platforming section.
I probably shoulddn't comment that the music is bland and the character designs/general visual style is ugly, but I will, because why not.
I can't find a lot to like about this game. I can be clever or interesting at times, but it does nothing to really stand out from the many better platformers available for the same price or less. Pass on this one unless you're really desperate, I'd say.

This game is awful. The level design is extremely clunky, the controls when moving objects around are frustrating, and you'll feel like each death you're fighting against the awkward mechanics that this game boasts.

And to name drop Super Meat Boy and Braid in the description? That's embarassing. This game shares absolutely nothing with those two great games, and it's clearly a blatant way to ride their coat tails and try to cash in on their success.

Don't bother wasting your time with this game. I got through two of the three worlds and just had to stop because it felt like a huge waste of my time.

I was initially quite excited about playing Ethan: Meteor Hunter. Unfortunately I was soon taken aback by the bad puzzle system, the generic level design and the badly implemented mechanics within the game. The only redeeming quality are the pogo stick levels but since up until now I have only had one this is clearly not enough to justify purchasing the game. Overall , If you are looking for a good platformer/puzzle there is an abundance of better titles- both in terms of aesthetics and mechanics.

The sound track is pretty good and the platforming is ok. The visuals are very basic and unorigninal.

I really dig this game. I stumbled upon it during the sale and it looked like a decent platformer.
Being a fan of the genre I decided to give it a go and I was not dissapointed. I was actually quite impressed.

I'm very competitive so the leaderboard is a really nice feature. After being inspired by the video posted of a Time Attack on the first map I decided to give it a go myself and soon I would find myself battling it out versus one of the developers of the game.

Even if the competitive aspect isn't your forte the game still has a lot to offer. It looks amazing, it controls well and the levels are really well made (and there's plenty of them!)

If you like platformers I can't imagine you'd be dissapointed with this game

A lot better than I expected! 4/5
- Very challenging puzzles and platforming.
- Good variety of challenges.
- About 3 leaderboards per stage. Clear time, fragments collected, and pauses used.
- 3 worlds with many stages. The game is hard enough to make you spend a lot of time trying to beat it. (I spent an hour on a stage once...)
- Lots of replayability for every stage due to built-in challenges for low clear time, fragments collected, minimal pauses used and leaderboards.
- Physics are well done. Momentum needs to be manipulated as well. Tons of possibilities.
- Multiple ways to complete stages.
- In-game art/graphics are decent.
- Animations are smooth.
- Quick restarts, instant respawns.
- Controller support (though I prefer KB/M on this game)
- Sound effects are decent 3/5. They don't bother me.
- Music never got annoying, I never felt like I had to turn off the music, even after many hours of playing.
- Steam Card drops.
- Has achievements (better than none)
- No RNG. This is great news for speedrunners. (This would be an entertaining game to see speedruns of, it's like Super Meat Boy)
- No bugs from what I've seen so far. (Aside from a tiny one with the restart dialogue popping up continuously if you spam the confirm button on keyboard or controller)
- Some stages have cheese hidden in hard to reach places.

- Story is lacking, but is not absent.
- The opening cutscene to a new game is not very good.
- The game can't be minimized in windowed mode.
- Configuration limited to resolution, VSync, fullscreen/windowed, and FXAA on/off. But you would likely not benefit from any more options than these on this game anyway.
Not many cons, you see. Try it out.

I love it! Really fun and not easy. Good combination of jump and run skill with riddles.
Didn´t crash even once and couldn´t spot any bugs so far. Only thing that would be cool is an exit to windows button ingame.
If you quit a game you return to the main screen, have to press enter and then you can exit to windows.

No biggie, just wanted to point it out. :)

Ethan: Meteor Hunter is an atypical platform game. Mixing a classic platformer with distinctive elements has definitely been a good idea. The game is difficult, but the level design is extremely good and the game worth its small price.Ethan: Meteor Hunter has good ideas, but it lacks variety of challenges and its control is imprecise.Ethan: Meteor Hunter is a solid platformer, but it lacks the character and exceptionality.If you like this kind of games, especially those harder than the average puzzle/platformer, it well deserves a try. However, it fails to show any outstanding feature. Overall 6/10.

Dont let the trailer or the demo fool you, after a few levels you will find yourself playing that classic arcade game when you just have to restart levels only to get some luck on a moving platform. If you want to buy this game remember only like 30% of the time will be about solving puzzles.
If you are looking for something that will challenge your intelligence and let you think about a brilliant solution (like I was expecting buying this game) this is not worth your time and money.
