Playable. It isn't a bad game though. I'd say, the game just isn't interesting enough.

It has 82/100 metascore. Bit too much, imho.

About 85% players on steam didn't even beat 50% of the game and only 9.3% finished it.

I wasn't a fan. My biggest gripe, which you will think is insignificant until you've played it all the way through, is the spawn system. You die and restart from your last checkpoint then for a few seconds you can't jump or glide. This leads to quick deaths and frustration if you do get stuck.

It lasts about 2 hours with the main game but it also has collectibles you can go back and get so there is some replayability but nothing changes.

I'd recommend it middle of the road, if you want a side scrolling platformer, it's cheap and does get much cheaper, but if you just think IT'S ON SALE LET'S BUY IT then I wouldn't bother.

Meh. The graphics and music are nice. The level design and gameplay are lacking. Every new mechanic is presented over and other again in repetative, nearly identical scenarios. The whole affair feels like a tech demo or a console launch game.
