Capsized XBLA Review | The Game Scouts

Tin Salamunic: You’d think that the 2-D platformer genre has been thoroughly exhausted by now, especially with the indie renaissance reviving old-fashioned game mechanics and re-introducing an era long forgotten. But spend only fifteen minutes with Capsized and you’re quickly reminded that certain traditions transcend time. The fundamental roots of the olden days provide a flawless blueprint for creative freedom and it’s games like this that continue invigorating the formula beyond its aging principles. Capsized emanates nostalgia. It’s comfortably familiar…but also innovative and refreshing. It strikes a perfect balance between the old and the new. It’s challenging, it’s beautiful…and most importantly, it’s memorable. (Capsized, iPad, PC, Xbox 360) 8.0/10
