To add to this, the puzzles found within are all very clever and unique to their own, giving a large variety to the gameplay and letting players conduct different strategies to overcome obstacles. A lot of the ideas may be a bit borrowed, but I honestly want to say that in many cases, this game reinvents those concepts with it’s intuitive design and mechanics. If you plan on picking up any “Summer of Arcade” game this year, mark Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet high on the list as it is one title that goes above and beyond to capture the player’s full attention from beginning to end."
