If you love seriously challenging platformers that will test you and keep you busy for a long time, then this is the perfect game for you. It’s just a must-have for hardcore puzzle fans. But I’d caution against it if you’re someone who gets easily frustrated and has no patience for highly difficult games. Otherwise, don’t miss out on this, it’s an incredible effort that’s absolutely worth the purchase."
