Translated by

Product received for free is an Extraordinary platformer with pixel-art graphics. Pros: 1) Excellent Leveldesign, makes actively think and does not forgive mistakes in the game. 2) Nice graphics, UI and sound design. 3) Retracting addictive game, it is hard to cast. 4) Support for gampads. 5) Low cost of the game at its high level of quality and elaboration. Game Bugs: 1) No mouse Support in menu 2) Strange hitboxes-The character often dies in incomprehensible places, gets stuck and podlazgietes on some platforms. 3) Insufficient flow to play on speed. The Rest we wrote in our review on the site: http://welovebundles.ru/just-bones/

A rather clever Puzzle Platformer. You play a Skellet or a Skull and you have to look for your Body Parts together in each Level to overcome Obstacles (jump higher, dig). A pretty cool idea, but the Gameplay is quite along the Lines of "Trial & Error" and you have to constantly restart the Level, which is a bit annoying. But overall made quite cool. There is also, unfortunately, NO "Steam Collecting Cards" for the Game, although it is displayed on the Shop page. The Achievements are all quite easy to get. + Cool Effects + Music Is OK + Level are short + cool Gameplay idea (search Body parts) + achievements quite simple-very Trial & Error hard (so you have to restart level constantly) Conclusion: Cool Gameplay idea with weakening but still recommended but definitely on one Big Sale waiting

The game has an interesting idea and there is a certain ingenuity in game design, but the quality of performance is more like a game for games-Jam (amateur competition for game development), or, for example, the average game of the Middle Ages. The Pixels in some places are stretched, the music is very annoying, the control is quite djorgannoe. The Feed, moreover, is clearly for mobile, with the burning training, short first levels and stars (while the same JumpJet Rex also awards stars, but mobile diseases do not suffer). Although I can not recommend the best modern alternative for the same money, but some old platformer of the type Jill of the Jungle (they are now worth about so much) should be more interesting. P.S. it Turns out that Jill is not available in any of the modern stores of old games, and it means that it is not an option for many gamers. And the category of logical platformers on the Stie is not surprisingly scarce. It Turns out, those who are interested in such a short format of logical platforming, will have to consider just Bones.
