Nimbus is surprisingly good. The controls are tight, great level design, highly recommended given the price.

Nimbus is a lot of fun and very pretty, and it's basically just as challenging as you want it to be. There are a lot of optional levels, you can configure how you want the checkpoints to work, and your time records don't unlock any content or anything so it doesn't matter if you don't care about trying to accomplish them.

However...

If you _are_ interested in time records, be aware that Nimbus has one enormous bug: it bases its records on how much time elapses in the real world between the beginning and the end of the level, rather than how many game ticks pass in that time. So depending on how powerful your computer is, falling through the same vertical space without pressing any keys may take you anywhere from 4 seconds to 30 or more. Lowering your resolution and turning off graphical effects can help with this on some of the levels, but these are not adjustments you should be forced to make to fix a gameplay issue.

Truly an amazing game.
It is extremely fun and addicting.
The game seems simple at first but with every added obstacle the ame become more and more complex.
The satisfaction of completing a level you first thought impossible is amazing.

I highly reccomend this game to anyone who enjoys this genre of games.
