About This Game

Imagine you could move mountains - literally! With realistic physics, Norse runes, rotating platforms and a lot of gray cells you'll help Munin, Odin's messenger in her very own 2D-adventure, to reclaim her power on a journey through Yggdrasil.

VENTURE TO A WORLD OF NORSE MYTHOLOGY

Munin the raven, faithful messenger to Odin, now stands stripped of wings and transformed by Loki into a mortal girl. Flightless and determined, she will stride through the nine worlds of Yggdrasil to reclaim the lost feathers and return to Asgard.
Munin bolsters the traditional side-scrolling experience with the use of rotating environments to surpass obstacles and to solve puzzles. By twisting portions of the environment, players will create bridges from pillars, turn walls into floors or open new passages.
Further gameplay elements, like switches, moving environment or items influence by physics add even more depth to the puzzles: by rotating the game's world, boulders and debris will rumble, roll and fall. Liquids like water or lava will flow accordingly and Norse runes will show the way to the raven's lost feathers.
Munin features nine amazing worlds, 81 exciting levels and roughly 7 hours of enjoyable playtime.

I wish there was a neutral option when reviewing games on Steam and choosing whether to recommend this game. I wouldn't not recommend it, but I'm also not certain I would recommend it either... It's one of those games that's not terrible but not great. I enjoy some of the puzzles, but find myself only able to play for about 20 minutes before getting bored. It feels like a shell for something that could/should have been more.

The gameplay is smooth however and the puzzles, which can at times be annoying, aren't overly difficult. If I found myself stumped at any point, I simply stopped for the day and when I started it up the next day with fresh eyes, I solved the puzzle right away. I find it plays just as easily whether using a mouse or a controller and didn't find myself preferring one over the other at all.

Graphically, while the art style has a certain charm to it, it can get monotous and at times ugly. I actually feel like I would've liked this game a lot more and could have forgiven its lackluster gameplay if it had just looked prettier. It feels bare partially because it looks bare. When you make a game as basic as Munin, you need to make it stand out in some other way, whether it be art direction or sound design or something like that. Speaking of sound design... I honestly can't even recall the sound in this game. It was that forgettable. Is there music? Probably. Are there sound effects? Probably. Nothing that stood out enough to me that I can actually bring to mind any of it though.

Overall Munin is an absolutely middling game. For the $.99 it's currently selling for on sale (which is what I paid for it), I'd say it's worth it. I would most definitely NOT pay the full price of $10 though. This feels like it shouldn't cost more than $5 at most, and honestly I can't help but feel kind of bad for those folks who've paid full price for a game that feels like a demo or the final project of an undergrad.

What I really like about this game is that there is no need to act quickly most of the time. I always have trouble with puzzle games where timing is important. In this game, you usually just need to figure out a safe place to stand while rotating the other parts of the puzzle. There are a couple of parts where being too slow can kill you, but even in those, you don't need to be really quick, just not stop until you're safe.

Usually I need help with puzzle games after the first few levels, but in Munin, I've managed to get to the last world all by myself. It has taken a lot of trial and error, but fortunately you have two or three worlds available simultaneously, so if you get stuck in one, you can go to another and come back later. Also, the puzzles are logical, so you should find the answer, if you just have the patience to try all options available.

As many of the other reviews say, Munin isn't anything ground-breaking, but it's still fun.

This is a pleasant and addictive little puzzle game. You have to rotate sections of the screen in order to collect the feathers. At first the puzzles are easy, and then you have to deal with things such as boulders and water that you figure out how to use and/or avoid. I can recommend this game to fans of casual puzzle games.

Hooked on this little Viking themed platform puzzler. Solving each level requires rotating different sections of the screen in order to reach inaccessible areas. Sounds boringly simply, but the game successfully builds upon this premise, gradually introducing new kinds of obstacles. Levels start very easy and gradually get harder, without ever becoming hair-pullingly difficult - which is what makes for a perfect puzzler, in my book.

A good game that's just challenging enough, every set of stages introduces a different mechanic and it's really rewarding to solve each puzzle from the last set, where several of those mechanics are mixed and matched.
