1UP-Pid Review: Beauty Can't Save This Archaic Beast

1UP:Very few games have ever left me in a state of frustrated awe quite like Pid, a new puzzle-platformer available through a majority of digital download venues. The inaugural effort by Swedish indie studio Might and Delight, Pid pays unerring homage to the 8-bit platformers we all grew up on, even if that means bringing over some of the archaic design decisions that games have long-since moved past. It's this unflinching love of that specific era of gaming that contribute to Pid's greatest successes, while simultaneously guiding its most massive failures. (PC, Pid, PS3, Xbox 360) C+/A+
