"Building up from and expanding a game that was made in 24 hours, Thomas Was Alone helms from the mind of developer Mike Bithell. The original was pretty unique for an internet flash game, to the point that when I first read about this release I still remembered playing the original game myself. Somewhat short, the original game didn't dally on spectacular graphics, but instead nice, slightly challenging platforming featuring rectangles trying to reach a specific spot for one on each level. This time, the expanded full game now has a full narrative story, including voice-over, and more gameplay featuring than simple jumping."
