Test your skills and reflexes as you simultaneously guide two lovable(1) balls through over 100 controller-smashingly(2) tough platform challenges. Control both balls at exactly the same time as you try to avoid the death and danger that awaits their every move.

Oh, and there are jokes.(3)

(1) May not be lovable
(2) May not even be a word
(3) May not be funnyFeatures
  • Make your way through over 100 levels of fiendish puzzle solving and death-defying challenges.
  • Glutton for punishment? Replay levels against the clock to get the fastest time you can. Are you quick enough to get S rank on every level? (We’re not.)
  • A funky adaptive music score that ramps up when you do well and chills out if you’re stuck, to help you concentrate. It’s like the game wants you to do well (while it’s throwing spikes at you).
  • Choose your own route to completion through a non-linear map. Stuck on a super-tough stage? No worries! Just go and hone your skills on a different level.
  • Laugh along with up to ten jokes! Look, we’re going to keep saying it's funny. You'll come around eventually. (Don’t worry there is no extra charge if you laugh more than ten times.)

No controllers were harmed in the making of this game.

Binaries reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
Binaries is composed of over 100 levels in binaries, your goal is to place the orange ball in the Orange goal and the blue ball, in the blue goal. Nothing difficult so far. Where it gets complicated is that you control all the balls at the same time. When one goes to the right, the other goes right too. Of course, an orange ball on oranges spikes is lost! Fortunately, an orange ball, on blue spikes, you have nothing to fear and for the reverse also (a blue ball on orange spikes). In binaries, do not be afraid to lose and start again, and rerecommencer and again and again. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=668740404 to read all my impressions on binaries.

You know, I like difficult games, I have the soul of a competitor, basically. It's always gratifying to end a difficult game. However there is one type of difficulty that I hate is when a game is so difficult that despite the efforts provided, there will be no solution that is visible. Binaries is not content to be difficult, it offers levels where it is so at the limit of the impossible that there are no solutions envisaged, even with several (!!) hundreds of tests! I would have said nothing if this game would have been free as the "I wanna be the guy/t he boshy" and al. who have nothing to envy this game point of view difficulty, but m * * of €9 that it costs this game! This game in its principle is rather not bad, but there are too many levels whose difficulty is so abominable that it will spoil you all pleasure to play.

Binaries is a formidable game of reflection, action and reflex with a sometimes formidable difficulty. One directs a blue ball and an orange ball to which one must cross a course in 2D to the designated location for each ball. You have to avoid the traps otherwise it is lost and you have to start again. The thing is that we control the two balls simultaneously! So you have to think carefully before pressing the keys (left, right, jump and that's all) because if the progression can be successful for a ball, it can be the Cata for the other. There are very many levels that ensure a good lifespan, especially since some are really very difficult. Fortunately, we unlock every success several new levels and we can always choose the one to be measured without being stuck by a challenge too demotivant. The runs are timed for those who want to improve their reconrds or compare their performances with their friends. I had specifically left this game aside because I struggled in vain on a level but I regained pleasure by succeeding other levels to the point that I already recommend this game while I am only 10% of progression. In short, an addictive game with a real challenge but with different levels of difficulty that will be able to suit everyone. I recommend warmly.
