Its as challenging as operating a Zamboni, as rewarding as watching an M. Night Shyamalan film, as gory as The Muppets Take Manhattan. Lovely Planet is an odyssey of love, gratuitous violence, and adventure. Witness the star crossed lovers painful separation! Gasp in shock as our hero blasts through enemies! The new york times bestselling novel is finally coming to the big screen!

I can't say that this is a "bad" game, but depending on what kind of gamer you are, you will love it or hate it.

Very repetitive, very unforgiving, instant death for any mistake, push, push, push and absolutely no story or development of any kind to give you any reason to care. Success is rewarded only with the next frustrating series of hoops to jump through.

For some, this game will be an exciting challenge. For others (like myself) it is a tedious excerisise in rote learning and negative reinforcement.

BeWaRe!


This game is CUTE AND CUDDLY HELL!!!!

But seriously fun.
Its a great game if you like to speedrun things.
Lots of jumping and shooting.
This game could run on a toaster. (A very crappy computer).
great for RAGE!! (I think this game has made me mad several times).
Amazing Soundtrack.

10 / 10 Best suffering EVER.


The only reason you should not buy this game is because its too FUN! ( and / or time consuming)

I am a really big fan of twitch shooters and other skill based fps.
But this game just dropped the ball somewhere...

I enjoyed the silly music and lovely surreal design of the world.
But the world never changes... It really gets repetetive after a while
because you have the same goal over and over again.

Then when the apple mechanic gets introduced, it must be the
end for every single casual player. Let me explain: There are red
apples scattered throughout your path, those apples will launch
into the air and drop back to the ground. If you do not shoot it
before it touches the ground, it will restart the level.

This may sound ok-ish but the developer used this as his main
design gimmick. You have to do 180° trickshots midair hitting
apples in a flying arc WITHOUT A ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ CROSSHAIR.

Conclusion: This is a game for hardcore speedrunning fans in
the fps genre, while looking like a smartphone game... If you are
looking for casual fun do not buy this.

Ughhh, I'm finally finished with this game. It's a very minimalistic First Person Shooter type game. If there were a game used in the future to train hardcore FPS players to become even better, this would be that game. You just hate it! You hate it so much, and all the little guys that have little smiles on their face as they fire purple cubes of death at you... YOU JUST WANT TO SHOOT THEM IN THE FACE, BUT NO! IF YOU DO THAT, YOU LOSE! So you just have to get by them, intercepting their bullets without shooting them. This game requires you to turn so fast at certain moments that it causes whiplash, and as such, comes with a free promotional Lovely Planet Neck Brace. The game is very fast paced, and it's really satisfying when you complete a level. This game is one of the hardest games I have ever played, and I'm proud to say that I finished every level of it. If you finish it too then maybe we can hang out and compare neck braces.

Again, this is more a neutral review, since the game has a lot of potential but it's way too broke at the moment, in my honest opinion. Don't get me wrong, though. I love the art style a lot and the concept is brilliant. The music is a bit on the cutesy side but never too much.

However, I think it's way too buggy, especially if you accidentally jump to a wrong place and need to restart the whole level with no way to jump your way out or walk around. Since the nature of the game is to explore where to go, this might be one of the most annoying problems. The jumping needs improvement too, with some kind of actual chance to survive rather than spamming the R button.

The difficulty with these things mentioned above makes the actual difficulty step between the levels even worse which is quite disturbing, in some ways it's like World of Goo which suffers from the same problems in each levels.

If you can live with this, get it. Otherwise, don't.

It's like COD, but more kid friendly.
