I had It from a package of humble bundle and I downloaded it just to test the download speed when I moved... And it was the best thing I could have done, very good game, fun, humorous, challenging mechanics, like before. 0 bugs.

If You like games of this type, Mezlca Matabitxos, platforms, puzzles and also joins a difficulty well placed, with a perfect technical finish is your game, very addictive and learn to die again and again to get past the different situations " Hot "that are presented

die hard, die often (non-customizable) controller settings (aside 2 presets with each 2 variants) seems to be restricted to make it even harder ;) nothing to complain, "characters" seems a little bit half-life adopted from GLaDOS and Wheatly, still just a fine "fire and forget" shoot'em'up

Good Jump and Run Game. Reminiscent of the "good" old Days when Games were still demanding. PRO: Medium Heavy Claim Faire Respawns Very Good Humor Good opponent Variety Varied LEVELS CONTRA: Mid-Heavy Claim Short Campaign (+ -4h) Few Upgrade options

This game has the ability to get the worst of oneself: ranting about, frustrations, despair... The Best Thing is that it has a ' difficult ' mode and once in a while it says "Put it hard to earn more points", while you die over and over and over again. It Is A platform shooters of all the life of God, yes, graphically very attractive and the dynamics very variaditas. He Doesn't invent anything new. To destress you is no good.

After playing RIVE for about ten minutes the main flaw of the game jumped to my eyes: it sucks. The game is empty, not very interesting, the graphics are as beautiful as a picture of my little sister dead and the gameplay is as poor as the tier-world. I recommend this game to lovers of fun, however I must admit that the explosions and the effects of feedback are cool, they make want to play a game of the same type but in better, I would advise rather to buy a good shoot them up rather than celu I. Thank you for reading my column and next week on the JVC forums.

Product received for free Excellent game, with good graphics quality for your genre, and remember those old games with decent gameplay mechanics. Very colorful and friendly to have a good time completing challenges. On the other hand could have implemented a multiplayer, perhaps a little more arsenal of weapons especilaes, and one that other details to make it more interesting, some bosses usually have a bit of Difilcultad and you have to learn the patterns. As a curious fact when playing with the mouse appears as a laser sight and perhaps get more precision at the time of aiming, which does not happen with the command. Of the rest good game. Best regards. ENJOY FAMILY!!!
