“Hands down, Another Perspective is a great title with a great hook. For me it was the perfect blend of simple but not bland, challenging yet not frustrating.”

“Another Perspective takes a winning mechanic and re-purposes it in a fun and challenging way.”

About This Game

Another Perspective is a puzzle platformer following the very confusing adventure / slow existential meltdown of someone looking for something that they don't remember.

This person(?) has the power to swap minds with what appears to be other versions of himself who all see the world in different ways. Where one pair of eyes sees a bottomless pit, another might not. Where one sees a locked door, another sees a key. To change perspective is to change reality!

Combining these "realities" allows him to progress - or to at least do something that resembles progress - however this new found power leaves him deeply confused. Who is he? Why does he have this super power that doesn't make any sense? If he's swapping between bodies which body is really his? Why does he keep having to pick up keys and unlock doors? Where is he going? Is he even going anywhere? Does he even exist? What is he looking for?

The answers to some, all and none of these questions will be probably definitely not be maybe found by playing the game.

I like this little Platformer.

You are solving ridles that are not to hard and get through the thoughts of the little men that you push through the levels. In the end with deep mysterious... well don't want to spoil it for you.
Even so I did rush through it in only 1 hour and 15 Minutes, I only played the Main-Game so far and there is more, so I think it was definetly worth the few coins I spend.

For the game beeing a little short my overall outcome would be:

8/10 - A good game

Keep smiling

This is quite a charming game. I've known the developer's work for a while but I didn't imagine he would use such a basic concept to make a puzzle game. Besides movement you just switch characters and needs keys, however level design teaches you to use that in several different ways that from your perspective you wouldn't imagine being done.

If you like puzzles, this is a must have. Also, the game has the annoying habit of making you care a lot for the characters, and it leaves you wanting to see more of them, although the game stops in the right moment. Worth buying at full price.

PS: If you like this kind of game, but wants something more quickly paced, I suggest you play Pause Ahead.

Awesome strategy game, also quite funny at times. Fun to play, easy to learn the controls, and a new challenge around every corner. The story is great, and it teaches a life lesson subtly as you go. I have not yet completed it, but I'm sure it's a great ending..
It gets quite hard as you go, so if you're a rager, this isn't for you.
9/10
(-1 for extreme difficulties higher up)

I love games that make me sit for hours staring at the screen trying to figure out how to solve a certain puzzle. This was not one of those games. The solution to almost all the puzzles can be figured out pretty easily and the game as a whole is pretty darn easy. And pretty darn short as well.

As for the aesthetics, the game looks pretty decent and the character somewhat resembles the character from Braid. That is where the similarities end between the two games. Gameplay wise, it's smooth and easy. The achievements are really good and those can be hard to get. 6.5/10
