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

A fun little game that was very challenging, even though I play on Easy. The "boss fight" seemed really out of place with the rest of the game, though.

Reminds me of an old Sega game for some reason.

Plays a like a momentum driven platformer. Nice design, music, and atmosphere. Controls are simple, but take a bit getting used to, as it's 2D flight.

This is a weird but interesting game, it is been a long time since i played it to make a review, but compared to most bad games i played recently, Nimbus is very good.
Actually i remember having more fun playing this and its demo than most games i played this week.

I loved it. It has a great soundtrack, intuitive and challenging gameplay, upbeat (and approachable) art style, and just feels like a complete game.

I shall now honor the game with a haiku:

Rocket rides the nimbus
It cries out at unmatched speed
But that's the wrong way

buggy piece of garbage. it looked fun, but crashed constantly- would only run in 1024x768 in windowed mode (and that's after I deleted a config file just to get the game to run in the first place), and then it's stuck in "demo mode". Found a thread from 2011 where somebody ran into the same situation and the solution was to shut down steam and delete one of *steams* files (not the game's files). I backed the file up and tried it, didn't work. This game has been out long enough for crap like this to be completely inexcusable. If you see this on sale like I did, save yourself the headache, or at the very least try it within the refund period to make sure it works!! I didn't realize there was only a 14 day window for refunds, so here I am on the 18th day finally getting a chance to play it and now I'm stuck with it.

Nimbus is a glider game. You don't have an engine, your engine is gravity, and special platforms within the game like bumpers, speed ups or other graviational devices. The game starts off real easy, but it gets tremendously difficult. This is not a game for the faint of heart, neither are the achievements. This is one of the most difficult games I've ever played. However, the devs did a really good job of programming the physics and of desiging the levels. Pick this up if you're up for a challenge.

Very good game. Controlling your ship is extremely nice and the puzzles are pretty good. There are a ♥♥♥♥♥on of levels and friends leaderboards for all of the levels as well. Definitely worth the $10.

Very innovative and fresh game. You steer a glider that follows the basic rules of gravitation (speeds up if it falls and gets slower if you try to pull up). You can only turn left or right so the handling can get very tricky in close situations. If you hit spikes or come to a total halt you lose.

Colourful, accessible arcade action puzzle game where you manage thrust and inertia to steer your little spaceship thing through a gravity-shifting crazy golf obstacle course to the exit tile. Of course there are optional extra collectables along the way, alternate exits to alternate worlds, Super Mario World style, and enough new hazards and abilities to contend with that it kept my interest long before I ran out of new levels.

Works really well as a casual pass-the-pad multiplayer game. It's a lot more forgiving than something like Super Hexagon. Nobody's going to be on for too long but nobody's getting an early bath after five seconds. Well... not often.

Feels very much like a game you might find stuffed in a corner in a seaside arcade or find on an Amiga disk with half a Chinese label on it - you'll want to tell people about it, when you remember, but most of them will almost certainly never play it and you're not sure of the name or where you played it.

Maybe you should stop smoking weed.

Nimbus is the kind of game you play obsessively to beat your best time, the sort that satisfies the soul of a speed-runner; yet it has a satisfying serenity to it all, too. Hard to describe, easy to understand, this is one of those quirky puzzle / skill games that sticks with you (catchy music & all).

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.

Nimbus is an almost perfeect game. The sense of momentum and the feeling of zipping through the air is really fun. Shooting out of cannons, bouncing off of launch pads, diving from great heighs; it all feels good. The game introduces new mechanics, level features and techniques steadily throughout the game, so it's never stale. The music is great, and suits the relaxing and exhilarating aspects of the game very well. Collecting the coins and completing the scrapyard stages after finishing the main game is also very rewarding and satisfying. The graphics/art style are also superb.

Only problem I had with the game was that the boss battle felt a bit out of place, turning the game from acrobatic/racing game into bullet hell for the last level.

"That falling game"

That's how this was described to me. I never thought I'd like it. But I love it.

It's such a shame the team has gone largely off the radar. I'd love to play a follow up.

I guess this is a bit of a puzzle racing type of game. You control a ship and you have to bounce off of panels or use cannons to shoot yourself up. Then you guide your ship across the levels while avoiding things like spikes and crashing down. It starts off pretty easy but it gets difficult quickly. I normally don't really play these type of games (not for long anyway) but I do enjoy them from time to time. So depending on what you're looking for you might enjoy it as well.

Nimbus is easily one of the greatest games I've ever played, and certainly the only one I still want to replay.
Because Nimbus is all about friction - all about the mechanics of flight and soaring. Playing Nimbus is like riding a rollercoaster in 3D, without rails. It's like reaching your arm under your sofa to grab that single nickel with the tip of your nails. Nimbus doesn't have a physics engine - it has a HOPE engine. Your ship moves by the sheer force of your faith, trying to climb the ever-unsurmountable heights to get to the finish line.
Nimbus rewards daring, creative players.

Ah, and also it has a kickass soundtrack.

Great game, simple concept, levels are combination of momentum conservation, with some puzzles. Soundtrack is almost worth the price of admission alone. Also has lots of tricks, challenging gold medals, and optional routes thru the worlds for speedrunning.
