Lovely Planet, is indeed a lovely planet.

Its a highly fast-paced fps game action game, although at the beginning from the screenshots I was under the impression that its some sort of an adventure game like an open world and what not, but turns out its level based, and every level can be finished in 10 seconds or so, so they're all short levels and the faster you finish the more stars you earn.

My impression of the game

I Absolutely loved the soundtrack in the game, especially the first one, it gave the game this perfect fast-paced "cute" shooter touch.

The graphics are good, fits with the game style I suppose, the enemies and the world design and all looks really adorable.

The levels are really good, and they get harder and harder as you go and to me it was almost impossible to get more than 1 star at the later stages in the game, which is good if you're into the hardcore fast challenging type game because this is really tough.

The game is easy to master, the controls are very simple and the shooting and jumping in the game is so satisfying, and the game itself is really addictive, just watch one gameplay video and if you're into this fast-paced cute stuff you'll probably buy this game before even finishing the video.

And also as you go further in the game more stuff gets added, stronger enemies and more challenging and twisting levels and platforms.

Small cons
I played the game in offline mode for a while then when I got my internet connection I carried on, but still did not receive the achievements, saying this because basically all the game's I played in offline mode gave achievements.

And also the achievements in the game are not really that good, just getting stars and finding secrets.

Review was a bit short, because well nothing much to say about the game, there's a reason it got so many good reviews from major reviews, because the game is just great.

So again, if you're into this type of game by watching the screenshots if you like this type of graphics, then I highly recommend you to buy it, its cheap, has cards, achievements and provides you hours of fun.

After many hours of tears, anger, and frustration, it's finally over.

I finished it.

So smooth, so responsive, so satisfying, a roller coaster of emotions.

I thought I'd finally be free, but I just want more.

Lovely Planet is a FPS platformer in a surreal and cute world. However do not let the cuteness fool you, this game is brutally hard.

The graphics remind me of the Nintendo 64 games with crude 3D shapes mixed with occasional simple 2D textures to give character. I know this is a bit far-fetched, but I find it cute in Lovely Planet.
The gameplay is swift and responsive, the only weird part being sliding off some ledges that look like it would be possible to land on them. Framerate is perfect and the game runs well. However the FOV cannot be changed.

The idea is to get across a short level while jumping on platforms and shooting baddies. Simple enough, so there are leaderboards to compete, and stars given according to accuracy and speed. At first I kept trying to go faster and faster without understanding why my impressive runs didn't get rewarded by the game, until I learned that the third star was only given for 100% accuracy. I like a good challenge, so I worked on finishing all levels 100% with three stars.

At the start the levels were pretty straight-forward and it was fun. But then... then the apple fell too far from the tree. Literally, because falling apples is the one game mechanic that ruined the game for me. Any single apple hitting the ground triggers a game over. The early ones are thrown at the player, which is fine. However after a bit the apples are shot in the sky from a different place in the level, and just fall right where they are, whether the player is around or not.

Let me explain better how this is infuriating. You are in a part of the level, merrily shooting and platforming your way. And then, suddenly, you cross an invisible line and hear the dreaded sound of an apple been released. And now, the only thing that you can do is rush forward in the level to reach the part where the apple is located, and start shooting from afar (because the bullets take time to travel), without a target nor a crosshair, where you predict that the apple is going to fall . And then you realize that three apples were triggered, and you need to pre-shoot three different locations with pinpoint pre-accuracy and timing. So, basically, you have no choice but to quickly shoot in several directions and hope for the best, and do it again and again until you are a robot that has complete muscle memory of the right way to deal with this nonsense. And let's not talk about the moment where you have to jump on a jump-pad, and while in the air, shoot where an apple is going to land BEHIND you, then quickly turn back forward and shoot where an apple is falling in FRONT of you. I managed to do it. I did all of this. I had three stars in these levels, so 100% accuracy. But instead of being happy at my achievement, I was thinking "why? why so much time wasted being a robot and not having any fun?". Then I started the 4th world, and noticed that the levels were engulfed in fog. Superman 64 level of fog and fun. With the nerve-wrecking treat that I also had to pre-shoot apples that I couldn't even see, and it was made even more obvious that completing the levels would be a tedious chore of memorizing every single move and shot.

No, thanks, I like a good challenge, but this is just a waste of time, and the cute graphics are hidden in fog anyway, so why bother. Goodbye Lovely Planet, I only recommend you at a very cheap price to fool around in the early levels, otherwise I do not think that you are a good game worth investing my time and sanity to complete.
