Cubed3: Icarian (NyxQuest): Kindred Spirits (WiiWare) Review

Cubed3 writes: "NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits is indie developer Over The Top Games' debut title for WiiWare, or indeed any platform. Previously known as Icarian, it follows the story of Nyx - a winged female who descends from the heavens in search of her mortal companion Icarus. Greek mythology and platforming abound, but is it worth your time?

Comparisons to Frontier Games' Lost Winds are inevitable - both are independently developed platformers featuring 3D graphics on a 2D plane (though the style and tone of each are vastly different), and both use the Wii remote for a variety of interesting purposes. That's not to say that NyxQuest is derivative to a fault, though. It is, in fact, refreshingly innovative in the way it expounds on a few simple gameplay mechanics to create an endearing experience that never overstays its welcome..."

The story is too old to be commented.
