Love is a minimalist platforming game with a retro aesthetic and a focus on a challenging but not unfair difficulty. It has an innovative respawn system, 12 levels, 12 track soundtrack, competitive scoring, and a simple-to-use level creation feature.

The challenging levels are balanced with the inclusion of a simple yet unique respawn system wherein the player can leave a checkpoint at any location at any point, as long as they are on solid ground. Players have a number of gameplay modes to choose from, whether they want it easy, normal, or they want to try their hand at a mode designed specifically for Speed Running.

Beyond the visual aesthetic, the challenging level design, and the abundance of features, there is the fantastic soundtrack composed by James Bennett, which brings the simple 3-color atmospheres to life.

This game is platforming at its most basic. The controls are exactly what they need to be for making almost but not quite pixel-perfect jumps, and the graphics, while hardly the best, offer a few well-designed visual backgrounds and are always functional enough to let you recognize what will kill you and what dangers are ahead. The levels are well designed with just enough trickiness to offer potential traps but that the Single Life mode seems (at least to me) very much possible, some day, with enough practice. And the levels are also fun, which I think is the most important part. They are all very memorable in at least one way, and offer a variety of challenges. They are good enough that I feel it is worth playing through the speedrun mode, and playing multiple rounds to attempt to reach A++ scores.

Basically, it is a well-crafted challenge platformer that is beatable by probably most people but also offers enough challenges that people will want to come back to it repeatedly, and is short enough that a full game is not a huge time sink and failing does not prohibit you from coming back and playing again because you felt like you spent too much time on it. I would rank it better than average, and well worth the very low price of entry.

What is Love? Baby don't hurt me. Love is a simple, 2D platformer full of spikes and trampolines. You'll have 100 lives to make it through 12 'levels' of Love (easy mode has unlimited lives). When you die, you'll instantly respawn at the last checkpoint. The twist to this Love is that you'll make your own checkpoints on solid surfaces. The only controls are simple: left, right, jump and set a respawn. Its simple, but difficult all at the same time. When moving the screen left or right, I felt like the framerate would drop. Even on my 3.4 gHz Dual Core would drop from time to time, causing inaccuracies and death.

When you go into a game, are you looking for a challenge? Are you a 'speedrunner' that wants to shave seconds off your play time? Then Love might just be the game for you! For the challenge, there is a lot of precision jumping off of moving trampolines. You'll also be landing between two spikes without dying and running between drops of acid. There are a few blind jumps, but you'll quickly remember them. A lot of the time the levels have many heights. So you can fall down to a lower area and either you'll have to climb back up or die to respawn at the last checkpoint if it was above you.

The downside to the game is that it is over within 15 minutes or so. It seems like Love is less than its contemporaries like VVVVV and You Have to Beat the Game. When you complete the game, it gives you a grade a time and a score. So for score runners and speed runners, there is a reason to replay and try one of the different difficulties. While the challenge of Love is still definitely there, its all just one clear cut path with only a few moments of deviation. There is no sense of exploration. Its all just clear cut. The level designs are a mixed bag. It goes from clean levels to areas that look like line art and spiked floor deathtraps. Some levels offer sloping paths, but there's no slide mechanic. Other levels detailed with circled indents and jagged spikes.

Love will rarely switch up gameplay. There is a glimpse of a different play mechanic with a slow descent fall. But for the most part it is just moving trampoline platforms, shooting bullets in wave patterns and not much else. It feels like Love only offers spikes, bouncing and death pits. Once you are through the main game, the bonus levels offer much needed diversity to levels. Such as platforms the player can control, portals and giant static rings. So I see the developer is still trying to add more content. All the bonus levels play out pretty quickly.

It just seems like too quick of a game without enough diversity until the bonus levels. Even then, the gameplay is always the same and Love does nothing to add features beyond different death traps.

This is a small yet fun little platformer for when you are bored and need a short playthrough for about ten to twenty minutes, depending on your skill.
The graphics are very simple, always only featuring two colours per level, which can be both a good and bad thing depending on your preferences.
It also has it flaws, though. Remember the time when blind jumps and endless precision jumping was fun? Me neither.
Get this game when it's on discount and you won't regret it, if you like retro platformers.

Rock solid controls. Good music. Cohesive art direction. Start to finish it's about 10 minutes long. Great for competing with bros.

Although Love is a short game and isn't particularly difficult to beat, there's something about the way the art style, music, and game mechanics all work together that makes it quite memorable and fun to play. Your little sprite has a breezy running motion that makes certain sections feel quite fluid, the level design is simple and attractive, and the soundtrack is alternately calming and tense. The bright colours and rows of spikes gave me VVVVVV vibes sometimes too.

As for replay value, the scoring/rank system gives you some incentive to try for more challenging playthroughs, and the YOLO and speedrunning modes offer different options as well. The ability to select individual levels to play (after you beat the game) is particularly useful for practise.

Overall this is one of my favourite games aesthetically, and I always end up spending a little more time on it than I intend to. It's short enough that it doesn't feel like a big commitment, but has enough little achievements that it can appeal to those with a perfectionist streak too.

It is a minimalistic platformer with pretty good controls and nice music. That is everything a good platformer needs.

The difficulty is good, I played a lot of other platformers and i could just barely finish the game with 10 lives left of the initial 100 lives that you get on normal mode. There are a couple of "leap of faiths" in the game but generally the game is pretty fair especially nice is that the timing puzzles (megaman blocks) have a visual clue.

The game is rather short, i finished the game in 1324 seconds that is about 22 minutes. There are some achievements and secrets but i think the replay value is rather low, there is a mode with infinite lives, and a mode with just 1 life as well as a speedrun mode but i think they all play on the same set of levels.

Maybe not a game i would buy at full price because it is so short but if you like platformers and the game is on sale go for it.

This deceptively simple and basic platformer is an absolute delight. After playing and beating the game in about 20 mins, I went on to playing it again, and again and again and again. The soundtrack is superb and the gives the game a feeling of depth and meaning. It's a platformer in the truest sense and it it's immensly enjoyable. I have gifted about ten copies of this game to people whom have all loved it. Buy Buy Buy, for the low asking price, it's silly not to own this this gem.

This is seriously one of the cutest, thoughtful, concise but effective games I've ever played for the price point. It's synonymous with a simplified VVVVVV without the gravity reversal feature and substantially shorter. This is absolutely worth checking out. Excellent game!

Who the ♥♥♥♥ caps a game like this at 30fps? Killer OST and I dig the Aesthetic, but come on. I still kinda recommend it.

"Love" is a fast paced, hard, and fun retro 2D platformer that justifies it's $2.99 USD price tag. If you want a good time, even if it's very short (having only 12 levels), I reccomend you pick this title up. It has an okay soundtrack, but nothing out of the ordinary. It's graphics are incredibly simple and retro. They'll remind you of something right out of an Atari 2600.

There are also multiple modes for you to play, and while it's not reeking with replayability, the variety will keep you playing for a while. There's an "easy" mode with unlimited lives, "standard" mode with 100 lives, "YOLO" mode which speaks for itself, and a "Speedrun" mode, which is for those people that just gotta go fast. And did I mention there is even a level creator?

The controls are generally okay, but the character's overall unconfortably fast speed, overly tight jump, and unresponisve jump will make you fall off platforms like an idiot a lot. It's not that irriatating of a game to control, but it's noteworthy.

Another issue is that even though the game runs at a smooth 30fps throughout the entire time I played a single run, the game can look irritably jittery while you are moving quickly. This makes the speedrun mode even harder to control and judge where you are going to land after you jump. I make an already notibly hard experience, a bit harder.

PROS:
+Okay soundtrack
+Simple retro visuals
+Multilple game modes
+Level Editor

CONS:
-Irritably jittery framerate
-Mediocre controls

Score: 7/10

I'm going to recommend this game as it has a unique genre similar to a flash game that is available on Steam, which I find very cool, very swag, very handsome. I like it.

Additionally, I like to play this game due to it's game title, "Love". Which is a word I don't hear much of in my life as I am an only child orphan unaware to whether or not that I actually do have any brothers or sisters.

This is due to the fact that my parents had a drug issue within the household before I arrived which so happened to be on a old cat piss-stained couch at a drugged up mansion with Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre, this is where my life began only to fall apart as I grow older. I was one of the many mature offsprings from my family which is why I was most likely frowned upon due to the jealousy of other relatives. This, is confidence as far as my own self belief tells me. After that rave up in Snoop's and Dre's mansion I was rushed off to the Hospital with a severe head injury. I shouldn't even tell you how I managed to get the head wound in the first place, but I guess I'll have to as this is my tale of a lonely soul lost gamer just trying to make it in life after everything that gets thrown at him. As it so happened, Snoop Dogg had just finished snorting some cocaine out in the back by the swimming pool. As he came in he picked up his bong to blaze some illegal substances when he slipped over my mums water which was spewled all over the floor, still gushing from the genital area as it was happening. Mid air after slipping over Snoop managed to smash his head into mine, thus causing a severe head injury. I was just a new born, I guess it was fate. Maybe I was born for the 80's famous rappers to brush off some of their intelligence on me, although I wouldn't like it to be done physically. At the age of just 12 years old I began my own record label on the social media website known as YouTube.

A brief but fun little bite sized platformer. A classic game with some really awesome tunes, the new features added in the Steam version alone are worth buying this once free game. Totally give it a spin if want something light to playthrough.
