About

The Basement Collection is a compilation of flash titles by game designer Edmund McMillen. The games are different in their genres and settings. Especially for the compilation the games were upgraded.

The main collection features seven games: Triachnid, a spider simulator with realistic physics; Coil; Meat Boy, a predecessor to Super Meat Boy, another McMillen’s project; Aether, a space adventure game, Grey-Matter; Spewer and Time Fcuk. Completing these games you will unlock six more titles: The Lonely Hermit, AVGM, Meat Boy map pack, The Box, Thicker Than Water and The Cheats. Four additional games can be found under steamapps/common/basement/moregames.

In fact, The Basement Collection is the compilation of McMillen’s early works that show his unconventional mind and creativity. Many ideas and experiments held with these titles got their continuation in McMillen’s most successful works: Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac.

The Basement Collection reviews and comments

Highly recommended, a nice Pastime and unlike Binding of Isaac you can even pause or just play short:D You can see a lot when you have looked around the Arcade room of Isaac. It'S a lot of Fun to play, the Soundtrack is also nice to listen to. Seeing The Game concepts is interesting and even if you don't pay attention to history or Concept, you can't help but find the games, at least at one:D

Have just tried several of the Games included. Every single Store totally (and I don't have a bad PC) and very often actions (like jumping) are not carried out by the game at all or with strong delay. Especially with games like Time ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥, where you have to be really precise, it is extremely annoying when the Game does not do what you want. If you want to support the Developers you can get the Game quiet, it costs only 3.99€, but I definitely can't recommend it.

After 21H of game, hard to say that the purchase is interesting. * Certainly, there are plenty of good ideas, and if you are interested in the mechanics of the game, you will have fun. Most of the games are on the principle very entertaining, but many suffer from a reduced handling to zob skin fun. Triachnid and spewer are particularly concerned. After that, meat boy is fun but without a challenge if you played a lot of Super meat boy. Not knowing the shmup too much, I can say the quality of grey matter. Time ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ is for me the real good point. The game does not often require a precision of movuvement, but real puzzles intelligent and understandable. The good points being not very present, so I would recommend this game only to the fans of Edmund McMillen, and those ready to fight a sometimes catastrophic maneuverability.

Attention in this Review could be Spoilers, and it consists of my personal Opinion! Before I can evaluate this Product, you should know that this is not a Game, but several small Games. If you know And like Edmund McMillen, The Binding of Isaac Or Super Meat Boy! So This is usually about Mini-games with Nothing fully-fledged, but still more than good, and the Price is quite justified. First of all, a Warning to all who don't know Edmund McMillen, who are Games .. um let's just say Crazy?! So it is very special Humor very Satirical, in addition, the Controls take some getting used to, but nevertheless I can recommend this Game Collection to everyone. Personal Rating: Graphic: 8/10 Sound: 8/10 Control: 6/10 Story: 7/10 Difficulty: 7/10 Atmosphere: 8/10 Humor: 10/10 Fun: 10/10 Replay Value: 8/10 Bonus Points:-Total: 8/10
