Protoshift reviews and comments

A game with very simple but friendly gameplay. Despite everything, the lifespan is far too limited. For that price, it's still okay.

It is an interesting game, the mechanics is basic, just do not let the columns touch you. The music becomes repetitive after a while, it is preferable to get the sound of the game and music from PC xP. Recimiendo But the game would have to be cheaper, at 1.99 USD would not buy, maybe if to 45 cents or less...

Honestly I had not much expectation of this game and yet... This is certainly not the game of the century but its price is justified by the few hours it will make you pass. Some conditions are to be fulfilled to get there:-have a good hand, your reflections will be put to the test-do not be epileptic, your vision will be put to the test-remain serene, your nerves will be severely tested immediately this game has me think about flappy bird and I thought I'd get bored after a few tries and yet. Successes and progressive difficulty make you hang. Only two flats for my part:-the graphic universe. So certainly it's colorful, it's vivid... but there was a way to do better by spending more time there. -The perks. During a game you will be able to get bonuses but they are not useful and have finally forgotten them. Graphics: medium playability: good soundtrack: good interest: good note: 12/20

Beautifully crisp, heavy skill game in the Style of "Super Hexagon." Just the right thing to train Reflexes and Hand-eye coordination, especially suitable for People who want to prepare for fast Shooters or mouse intense Games etc. as warm-up exercise. But also in general a very demanding Game of skill For the General Public, which motivates to keep going and to get better and better. The simple but coherent Graphics, which are just right for such a Kind of game, are accompanied by fast, incoming pieces of Music, which push you up in Addition while playing. Due to a few short Power-ups that are randomly distributed, there is a bit of luck, but that really makes very little of the Game. There is definitely more Skill than Luck in demand here ... However, you are happy to get a small PowerUp at the right Moment and thus get a few More seconds out. :) Can really only recommend it for the Price because you will often catch yourself sinking into the Game for an Hour because the Ambition grabs you again and again. :)
