Bone-idle.ie : Nimbus Review

Leading Irish gaming publication Bone-idle.ie writes "To explain what it’s all about, you are in control of a little space ship in a 2D platform world. The spaceship itself doesn’t have any direct method of propelling itself forward but rather it falls, gracefully!. The ship is top heavy so as soon as you start the level it glides along, but the front end of the ship starts to drop dragging you down, you then need to use the speed generated from your falling ship and use its aerodynamics to turn and glide your way through the levels to the goal point. The first few levels are quite simple so you have an opportunity to get used to the control system, the later levels add more and more features to help and hinder you. For example some cannons can be used to shoot you up into the sky or some well placed spikes can bring you to a shuddering halt." (Nimbus, PC) 94/100
