About This Game

Spoiler Alert is a video game that tests your platforming skills… in reverse. It’s a comedy platformer that you play backwards.

When you pick this game up, it has already been beaten. The big bad boss is defeated, the coins are collected and the princess has been rescued. Why, oh why?
Unraveling this mystery takes you through the entire game, from the last level to the first. You must uncollect the coins, revive the enemies and avoid nasty time paradoxes. In other words, you must uncomplete the game by playing it backwards.

Everything in this game is so familiar, yet so different and new. You have played it a thousand times before, and at the same time, you have never tried anything like it.

I like platformers, I like cards, and I like 100%ing a game. This fit all of those requirements.
What's bad is I was able to get every achievement before all the cards dropped.

Honestly, it's not half bad. sometimes it's difficult to do quick jumps in succession, but otherwise the controls are surprisingly smooth.
So the point:
1. Like cards? This is cheap and drops them.
2. Are you a completionist? I'm not great at games in general and had this done in an hour and a half.
3. Simple, but creative idea for a platformer.

Enjoy you spicy pepper you.

An interesting, funny well done platform game with an original concept!

I really enjoy platform games, specially when those offer a great time, and Spoiler Alert is one of those.
In this game you don't play from start to finish, you play backwards, which means you have to uncomplete the game in order to complete it. It sounds wierd for sure but once you play it, you will understand. The devs actually knew how to handled this very well. It actually surprised me how well crafted the game is, it is short and simple but it offers everything I want from a platform game.
The soundtrack is great, as well the artwork and menus. Everything in this game is on point. It also have trading cards and achievements. Is not really hard to get all of them and those offer a good replay value.
Workshop? Yes! You can play even more maps and make your own!

So for my final words, you should get Spoiler Alert! I don't really have any complains about it. It is amazing, funny, challenging and original. My score 10/10
