Knytt Underground Review | GodisaGeek

GodisaGeek: "Knytt Underground is another entry in a seemingly endless succession of excellent indie platformers. It lacks the full atmospheric clout of a Limbo or the stellar rotation gimmick of a Fez, and may seem a little bit lifeless to some given the very cryptic plot and minimalistic nature of the gameplay. There are no bells and whistles (and please pardon the pun – those who have played the game will know what I mean) and although structurally it fits the lazy Metroidvania tag, in practise the gameplay has more in common with a classic 1980′s platformer like Jet Set Willy than it does with anything starring Samus or a Belmont. If you want a bit more meat on your platforming bones and love this style of game, then I would suggest you start with Cave Story; however, given the very reasonable price and cross platform PS3/Vita capabilities, you could certainly find worse ways to spend both your scrilla and a few hours of your time." (Knytt Underground, PS Vita, PS3) 7/10
