I was fearing about this game because I was getting a bit sick of indie physics-based platformers, but in the end it is a nice surprise... Both puzzle and platform parts are rather good. The platform part is very simple although easy to handle. The puzzle part is simple to understand, but hard to master. The only real problem is the high precision required when you use telekinesis.read more Fortunately the difficulty curve is quite progressive, it's possible to rush some levels and go back later to perfect them: collectibles, secrets are hidden all the way and you have to explore to find them all, but if you just want to "end" the game you'll find an acceptable challenge, with interesting situations. The game is quite nicely done, with a very good general overlay (localization in French for me, menus, achievements), beautiful musics and a nice 3D engine. Overall I wasn't blown away but I would recommend it to anyone seeking for an efficient and original indie platformer, even if it gets much too hardcore sometimes.
