And Yet It Moves is a platform video game which was originally designed as a computer science project at the Vienna University of Technology in 2007. The original prototype of game got various awards and creators decided to create and release a full-version of the game.
In this game, players have to move their pencil-drawn character who can run and jump through various hazardous environments. There is an ability to freely rotate the entire game world, like changing floors into walls and every level of the game is built with that having in mind. Also, the spinning of the game world has an effect on the main character as well as the world - walls can become flat, or walkable surfaces may move or react to the change of gravity. The game has a unique paper collage style of visuals and a beatboxing soundtrack made by Christoph Binder. The game was praised for its innovative gameplay mechanics as well as the visuals.

And Yet It Moves reviews and comments

A little UFO from the indie scene. This is what I said to myself by playing the first time at AYIM in 2009, even if the term indie was not yet as democratized at the time, in fact I did not even know him hohoho. In short this game is certainly short, but very pleasant to play, graphically it is special in the good sense of the term, a paper universe in which we advance in horizontal scrolling and.. Vertical? Yes, because the peculiarity of its gameplay is the fact that one can "turn" the game screen to be able to change the gravity and thus solve puzzles that will make us advance among the 3 environments that each have their charm. It is feasible in 2H if we do not farm successes, so why deprive yourself?

And Yet It Moves is a must for anyone who loves Indie Games or Platform Games in general. The graphics and soundtrack make it a unique game. AYIM is a nice mix between dexterity and thinking, which will keep you busy for hours. Furthermore, I have luckily encountered no bugs and (although my mac is not the slowest), it runs very smoothly. In short, it is separate and unique, looks very good and is very worthwhile.

A game with original graphics, fluid and very pleasant, a quick start (after changing the configuration to operate rotations because the default offers me was counter-intuitive), passages sometimes difficult to pass but the progress is well thought , many "obstacles" original cross ... In short, pleasant moments of break (it's not worth a good discussion between friends but it's much better than a cigarette! ;-)

Very Very nice ... in a decidedly original graphic you have to find out how to get from one point to another not only running and jumping like Mario Bros ... but also .. Rotating the whole world! the ch said so seems easy, not when, together with you, huge boulders can crush you from all of you! A pleasant game, more than fair price! Among the positive sides there is that there is no limit to the "lives!" every time we start again from the last check point ...

And Yet It Moves is a really great game. It may seem boring at first glance, also because it is very light, but it is getting better and better. If you have to kill the banana in the beginning, you have to drop a stone on a granite slab later on, this will ignite the highly inflammable material. By turning it correctly, the beehive will then inflame with the highly dangerous killer bees. The game is definitely worth its money and promises long fun! Clear Buy recommendation!

I bought the game about a week ago, was thinking about it because maybe it would be such a flut app again, but in this case it wasn't at all! The graphics are incredibly beautiful, more beautiful than I expected. There are not many levels, but the level of difficulty that goes up quickly makes up for it. Also very nice that the playing of the credits is processed in a level, so that you play a level what the credits actually are! So get it quickly, now that it still has a 70% discount!
