This game is visually beautiful. I loved the backdrops and the designs of the characters. Gameplay was fun and pretty simple, though more than one playthrough is required to unlock all achievements.

A boring 2.5d platformer with cute character design, an atmospheric soundtrack, funny cut-scenes, cool bosses, frustrating controls, and repetitive gameplay. It's similar to Trine, but without the co-op and cool physics.

You can swap between two different creavure, each with unique BDSM abilities (e.g., having a long sticky tongue, being able of electrocuting partners, and poking others with spikes) to solve platforming puzzles. More of these critters become available as you progress through the game, and therefore opens up new ways to solve more puzzles.

This game could be recommended only for young and/or casual players.

This is a cute platform game but I would definitely recommend it if you like adventure and working as a team. I really enjoy it but I'm stuck on a monster at the moment, lol. I will have to work harder to defeat him :)

The visual style is what struck me first. Its simply stunning.

The Creavures themselves are stupid cute, I mean, I want a Bitey for a pet right now.

The levels are creative, fun, and give you enough little puzzles to solve.

There is some back-tracking built in if you want to get 100% on each level (need certain characters), and the teamplay mechanic needs to be improved, but overall, the game is quite enjoyable.

Family safe, cute, & fun. A worthwhile purchase.

The calm neon jungle look with an ambient soundtrack always playing makes the game pretty relaxing for a platformer. You end up with 5 well designed creepy/cute characters and you rotate between any two of them to use their abilities to get through the levels, similar to Lost Vikings and Trine. Kept me hooked enough to get 100% in one sitting.

This is one of those games which gets a free pass based on its artistic style. In this game you need to get some funky looking creatures through a black-light forest by using each of their special abilities. It would be nice if there was a two-player option, which I can't believe they didn't put in. CreaVures is nice enough that I was happy to put up with having to switch between two active creatures, making me feel like I was going back and forth quite frequently to accomplish the task at hand. Would I still buy it if I had the chance to reconsider? Of course. CreaVures looks awesome.

Fun! Not a difficult game by any stretch, but the atmosphere, music, and gameplay were very enjoyable. Provides several hours' worth of casual gameplay in a darkly-lit, surreal world. The cooperative aspect of the game was well-done. And the characters are adorable.

so... after playing some time i regret having paid any money for this. ask a friend to try this out before buying.


pro:

#that game is quite good looking at the beginning
#sweet characters
#idea/concept
#shiny colours

contra:

#no AI for other pet or however you call this little creatures (so you have to walk the same way twice, literally. except at "challenges" where really both are needed)
#didn´t see much story or background
#only destination: collect light orbs to save a dying forest - no why, where, what. no sign if it matters at all if you leave orbs behind
#physics and animations are really poor
#that short video sequences are kind of cute but the animations are way too slow... okay... little cat (bitey) coming out of some corner...5 seconds later... still standing... turning head ... 5 seconds again... (urf :/ )
#climbing animation of bitey totally unnatural
#restart at checkpoints after some unexplainable "deaths" (no obvious reason)

after all i will give this a second try where i´ll play a longer period of time but for this i likely need some beer and boredom - good concept, but i´d describe that as alpha or beta - much potencial not used - a pity


i quit playing after it was getting worse with every minute

Fun small platform game in the same stile as e.g. Trine. You have five cute creatures, two at a time, with each their type of abilities, who needs to work together to save their forest. With these different abilities follow various small puzzles for you to solve to get through the levels and collect forest lights. The game is rather short (took me around 4-5 hours to 100% it), but somehow it doesn't feel that short. Also, I really love the dark black and purple theme the game has going, and in generel just the art style (the creatures are really well done).

*Gnome Seal of Approval*
Platformer with a nice atmosphere. You control a group of creatures and have to navigate them all to the end of each level. Each creature have some special abilities which you have to use in order to help the rest of the group past obstacles.

The negative:
No customizable controls.

its not bad but since u have to switch between 2 chracters with different abilities to reach the spots, it would make sense to make it a coop multiplayer game and not just singleplayer. its a neat game but it doesnt gimme the "wow this game is cool" effect

Bears many similarities to Trine, but introduces 5 playable characters, each with different abilities. Levels often have mutliple paths for certain CreaVures, so you will have to use all of your CreaVures at your disposal to perfect every level. The boss sequences are fantastic, and break up the game well. Keep in mind though that the game lacks polish and the controls feel pretty awful, many bugs have been fixed since launch but there is still plenty of animation issues and bugs that have yet to be fixed. If you can push through that it is worth a look.

A phosphorescent forest has lost all its light and there's nothing to save it until you engage and push away the encroaching darkness. CreaVures is a fantastic and beautiful platformer. Not only does the game look good, but it's story and battles aren't like your everyday platformer. It has ingenious and challenging levels and insane boss battles that test timing and craftiness for the little creatures you control. It's up to you to take control of 5 glowing little creatures named Bitey, Pokey, Zappy, Rolly, and Glidey, and save the forest from the corruption that has infected much larger and tougher creatures. Via collecting small pockets of lost light called Motes and by restoring light to several light spreading fauna and flora with Essences, the forest will be saved. Using 2 CreaVures at a time, and using their special abilities in harmony, defeat corrupted creatures and save the forest once area at a time. Includes 21 Steam Achievements, thousands of Motes and hundreds of Essences to collect, and hours of fun combinations of the CreaVures to save the phosphorescent forest.
