While this game is original, and a pretty well made "challenging" (extremely difficult) platformer, I just can't bare to recommend it, due to the mechanics.
Basically...each level has 2 "dimensions" that are laid on top of one another. You can move between the two dimensions most of the time as long as there is nothing in the other dimension that is blocking your way.
This isn't a problem in itself, but the way the game is designed is very frustrating...
It's hard to explain, but say you are trying to get across a spike pit with moving platforms that dissapear, what if at the very end the last platform is missing causing you certain failure? Well this game wants you to quickly move between dimension or the other map where there is a platform in mid-jump right before certain death.
It's almost like taking a leap of faith with every obstacle, because there's no real way of knowing what is on the other dimension since sometimes if you switch dimensions you will just die, because there will be a obstacle you were unaware of like a spike trap below. So...basically, just to get through the level you will have to do a lot of intensional dying just to memorize where everything is in both dimensions, while simutaneously trying not to die and collect stuff for bonus rewards...
If there was another mechanic like seeing both maps at the same time without having to switch, it would have made the game a lot better in my opinion. Leaps of faith are not my strongpoint, and certainly not a welcoming feature in such a difficult platformer.
(Another example which stumped me on the first level for a few minutes was when there was a cliff that was too high to jump on top of, so I switched dimensions and the cliff got even taller with the character that jumps a bit higher, so both dimensions were seemingly unpassible. The trick is in mid jump with the character that can jump higher you are supposed to switch dimensions to the shorter cliff.... this is the type of stuff that is filled throughout the game which makes it more of a puzzle solver)
- Not to mention the bonus stages which are so increibly difficult that I'd only reccomend it to the most hardcore of platforming champions.
(Edit: One additional side note that I do not like, is some of the background music is comprised of loops of bug sounds like flys / bees buzzing in your ear...very irritating if you have a headset)
