There's a particular style of game that seems to rub everyone the right way, and I'm not sure if it has a name or not. It's that ultra-minimalist look found in REZ, Lumines, and Chime, lots of right angles and primary colors, attended by a light-electronica soundtrack and synthesized voice. Everyone loves it for some reason, maybe because it feels like a friendly sort of futuristic. EDGE is another puzzle entry in this unnamed genre, but it does a lot more than just ape a popular aesthetic.

EDGE is so named because you control a perfect cube, pulsating with color, that rolls around on its edges. This isn't the imprecise flailing of Gravilon or square golf balls in Golf With Your Friends, this is precision movement across a grid of blocks suspended in some vast void. Holding the arrow key in a direction makes the cube tilt that way, and holding it long enough will make it tip into the next grid space. Your cube can tilt up elevations equal to its height this way as well, allowing you to scale stairs. Feathering the button lets you balance on your edge and rack up Edge Time, a bonus scoring mechanic that can also save you if a platform drops out from under you.

This tight control scheme is the cornerstone of EDGE, because the sprawling levels will assemble all manner of paths, tunnels, platforms, and obstacles to navigate. Some might have you following a one-block-wide path, some might have you flipping to and from speeding platforms, some might have you tumbling across falling blocks, and so on. There are even some complex scripted level features like robots and trains formed out of the moving landscape. Each level has a theme to match, and it is always presented in some recognizable way using the basic two-tone blocks that comprise everything.

You'll come across a number of colorful prisms in each level as well, which factor heavily into your scoring. Time is another factor, as is how many deaths you racked up. You can die, in a sense, by plunging off the side of a level. Sometimes this will be because of a flip in the wrong direction, other times it will be because an obstacle shoved you into the void. Regardless of what gets you it will happen often, but you lose very little thanks to the copious checkpointing in each level.

It's a simple premise, but the execution elevates it to something special. EDGE is polished to a mirror shine, with sharp graphics, a pumping soundtrack, and lovingly-crafted levels. There's around a hundred of those levels to get through, and the challenge is steep enough that it'll take you quite a few hours even without locating all the prisms. And mastering the movement of your cube is extremely gratifying when you finally start pulling off complex flips across harrowing hazards. After just a few levels you'll see why EDGE deserves to be counted among those classic games I mentioned above, and its look and feel are the least of many reasons.

So. I bought this game when it was on sale for, like, RM0.96. I didn't think too much about it. I just saw the price and went "F**k it, I'm gonna buy this game". Holy s**t did I enjoy this game. Haven't touched it for a while, but even an hour was enough to get me to love this game. Amazing soundtrack, surprisingly good graphics, interesting puzzles, colourful level design, and even a level editor to boot, this game offers tons of fun which I myself haven't begun to touch on. I am merely at the tip of the iceberg. Enjoy!

Too plodding and slow paced to be the kind of reaction based platformer it wants to be. Edge also relies on deaths you couldn't possibly know are coming the first time through, which is just cheap. It's a shame, because in many ways the levels are very well crafted, for the most part-there's clearly a lot of thought that goes into certain aspects of the design, but the execution is sorely lacking.

As much as I love all the other games from Two Tribes, I just can't get into EDGE. So far, the levels are not challenging in their design, yet they remain tedious to finish because of the strange physics. It takes too much time to start moving, and once you start, it moves quite fast. Everytime you want to change direction, your velocity starts from zero (or at least seems to). It just makes everything so frustrating. It wouldn't be that hard to beat the first few levels if the controls were tighter. Even if this problem was solved, I don't know if I would enjoy the game that much (I'd say it seems empty), but it's hard to evaluate.

I played it some years ago on mobile, and from what I remember, I suited this medium better.

Well done, but no charm.

If you're a platforming addict, I'd recommend. Otherwise, pass.

This game is actually quite special. It feels like a platfomer but you mostly roll around on an isometric level (ie. Super Mario RPG) hitting switches and solving puzzles. The controls are really tight, allowing you you manuver this... block around.

The charm really comes from the level design, the music - everything comes together into a really slick game.

Originally developed for mobile devices, this one is updated with full resolution and frame-rate unlock support. It's really quite sharp.

Highly recommended!

EDGE

A great little puzzle game that requires quick reactions and some lateral thinking.

Rating 6/10

The main objective of EDGE is to traverse your cube through some ingenious and rather convoluted levels made up of blocks, buttons and platforms whilst avoiding all manners of death as quickly as possible. Picking up small prisms that are dotted around the level speeds up your cube and gives you a higher rating for completing a level. There is also the ability to perform 'edge time' by balancing your cube on one of it's edges which allows you to hang off the side of walls. It's a mixture of balance and timing but it rewards you with time reduction at the end of the level.

Each new level, of which there are over eighty, represents a new challenge and new gameplay mechanics, learning these new mechanics is fairly simple as there are clues along the way. Its success lies in its simplicity. Get your cube from point A to point B in the fastest time you can manage.

It can be frustrating at times and there are a couple of fiendishly tricky sequences that can verge on annoying/frustrating but it's also incredibly addictive and rewarding.

It's not a traditional puzzle game nor is it platform game, it's something in between and it's great fun.

Brings back memories of playing Bloxorz on CoolMath, but loads more fun.

Pros Include:
Beat-thumping soundtrack (along the lines of Com Truise or Neon Indian)
Colorful, vibrant, minimalist visuals
Engaging, relaxing, spacey Atmosphere (despite the later difficulty)
Hits that perfect combination of addictive and challenging.

Cons:
One, and only one. Mind you, this has nothing to do with the design of the game, which is rock solid, just a warning for any potential customers. The puzzles, while engaging, derive their challenge from reaction and dexterity, rather than careful planning. This isn't a slow burn type of deal, but a "jesus christ I accidentally hit the left key, ♥♥♥♥ingfhdklajl;f" one.

In short: If it's within your budget, and you're looking for a quirky, engaging puzzler with a great soundtrack, look no further.

It's an ok game. Not reccommended because it's just not a captivating game. You are a cube and you roll around board after board trying to get to the end. You collect prisms along the way, although there doesn't appear to be any use in doing this unless you want the achievement. The levels get harder and harder, but getting to the end isn't really that hard. You are basically just trying to finish as quick as you can. Some of the maps are long and interesting, but alot of them are a pain. Too many levels where your cube dissappears and you have to move around and then your cube falls through the floor and you start over. Decent idea for a game, not executed as well as it could have been.

A no for me.

Edge is a great game, with a lovely soundtrack. The controls might be a bit hard at first if you are a moron such as I am. Later on they will be natural. It is never to hard to do it, but it is hard to do it with a high rank, so there still a challenge, even though everyone could complete the levels. If you are running on a mac with OSX El Capitan, just press command f a few times, otherwise the screen will stay blank.
All in all, a really nice game, certainly worth it.
