A short, but great experience! Qomp is a platformer(…?) where you control a ball from Pong, and you’re able to change your y-axis by pressing space or clicking… and that’s it! There’s only button, making the whole game extremely easy to get into.

Don’t let the simplicity of the controls fool you, however - qomp is very innovative, brimming with cool level gimmicks. On one level, you’ll be quickly switching between sets of buttons to open previously-inaccessible paths, with this switch also triggering new traps on the way back. On another, you’ll bounce and stumble through a maze that constructs itself before your very eyes. Or maybe you’ll be under water, having normal jumping physics while dodging a giant fish ready to make you his lunch! For a 3-hour long game, there’s an insane amount of variety, with the perfect balance between exploring those setpieces without overusing them.

Manages a surprising breadth and depth of mechanics despite having only one button. Boss fights feature extremely minimal opponents, but somehow still require a great deal of thought. One point which might put people off is the need to continually press the spacebar or mouse button. I found this to get uncomfortable at certain points, not necessarily due to a volume of clicks at any one point, but simply because a keyboard and mouse do not have motions condusive to spamming over a play session. Honestly, this feels like a game which would be perfect for mobile because of that, but I am very happy it is not a mobile game (at least not yet), since I would never have tried it with ads and whatnot.

This is the very first public review on the video game known as “Cat Sudoku” It is my duty to make sure that all the humans reading this spends the correct amount of currency to play this wonderful form of entertainment. Please, this video game is very educational and good for the human mind. It also has the species known as “cats” which I can assume is one of the mammals that you humans enjoy owning when domesticated. This game is a wonderful experience and it should be shared among the humans of earth. Thank you.

If you grew up playing classic platformers, you’ll feel right at home in Goblins and Coins. Don’t be fooled by its ‘cute’ aesthetic, it’s actually really quite challenging. I definitely recommend playing with a controller for this. On a great note though, the controls feel really tight. You’ll need that precision since the game amps up in difficulty over the course of its 5 worlds. I consider myself pretty decent at platformers and honestly I’m not sure if I’ll be able to complete this one on Old School difficulty, where if you die, you restart over from the very beginning. Luckily there’s a casual difficulty where you only have to restart that level if you lose all your health. Even on casual, some levels you may find yourself repeating multiple times just to get through. Each world ends with a boss fight, usually centered around a new mechanic introduced during that world. There’s a lot of content here for only 2 dollars.

It’s a nice little platformer, but sadly it felt like an average game to me. I mean, it works, it doesn’t crash, it has unconventional story, it has smooth controls. But it’s missing the feature which could make it a gem or excellent game. The camera could be a bit smoother, the speed of game could be a bit slower (though you quickly get used to it). Some sounds are funny and most of them feel appropriate. Music is ok. At the moment of writing this review, I didn’t finish the whole game yet (stopped just at the end of world 4, world 5 is the last one). I might update this review after I finish the game, but I doubt it will change much.

I bought this game after finishing Another Warfare. The game is neither hard, nor easy. That is a really good thing for a platformer. I, personally, enjoyed, but the words made me feel like that I was trapped in a body that is under influence of people who are insulting him. And in the end we are, finally, able to set ourselves free. I kinda felt happy when I finished the game. But it could be much longer.

I think a level counter should be in game. Because if you don’t check your achievements, you can’t learn which level you are playing. The game is short, but that should have been added in the first place.

I really liked the concept of the game. I wanted to play more stages. With intriguing atmosphere and pleasant music, it is an easy game to learn and difficult to master. The aesthetics of the game evolves as the stage progresses, the experience was short but recommended.

Residue: Final Cut

Residue: Final Cut

Cautiously recommended -if you have it or is in a bundle and are you interested in the story it will tell while you do some platforming-like game, I do recommend you trying it out to see how you like it.

And if you want a good platformer with a solid story, look for something else - platforming is just a mechanic here, not super accurate, and for this reason there are no challenging parts in it.

Really weird game - voice acting sounds authentic, but almost no voice-actor qualities, the controls are okay, the mechanics are quite wonky, but at the same time there isn’t too much to play.

The Aral Sea gets a lot less screen time than other industrial disaster areas, probably because it’s hard to set a first person shooter there. But it’s nonetheless one of the more fascinating/horrifying spots on the planet. And this is the Aral Sea as myth, in a sense. The quest to bring back the lost water that comes to consume the efforts of several people who are driven to try and return what is gone.

And in the sense of storyline and lore, and the immersive quality of its soundtrack and the distinctive voices of the characters, Residue is fantastic. In terms of actual gameplay though, it can be a bit rough… as a platformer some of the areas leave a bit to be desired, and the swimming is odd, but it’s well checkpointed and doesn’t really punish you for failure unless you miss the chance to torment some seagulls for achievements. Each of the characters moves quite uniquely (don’t expect the old man to go bounding around the landscape for example) which makes for varied play. And the game isn’t really long enough for any of its faults to get really grating, and it’s regularly switching characters and throwing bits of lore at you which keeps things moving.

Bring Back The Sun by Daniel da Silva

Bring Back The Sun by Daniel da Silva

Playing status: finished the game, 243 deaths


Bring Back The Sun by Daniel da Silva is a platformer game where you need to traverse the area to reach the exit. It offers a simplistic control where you only need arrow keys or WASD to move.


  • A lot of levels


  • Sometimes you can’t see what’s beneath you, forcing you to take a leap of faith to jump

  • Some mechanics feel cheap

  • The fast camera movement when you are jumping can give you a headache

Real player with 1.7 hrs in game

this would be a neutral review if steam had one

bring back the sun is a game made by a small developer

its a platformer game, nice music

i didn’t get to fully experience the game because i cant get used to the camera movement when jumping, it makes it hard to play

(kind of makes you rage)

if you can, please improve the jump camera and make it so you can zoom out a bit more as you cant see whats below you most of the time

price is also a bit higher than it should be

Forsaken Flesh

Forsaken Flesh

Kinda reminds me of Ghosts’n Goblins. Very difficult game, mainly because there is no savegame: if you die, you start all over. I tried with easy difficulty and I can barely arrive at the second world..

Recommended if you like challenging games that require you to be almost-perfect, or if you are a veteran of the genre.

I finished this in just over 3 hours. At least an hour of that I was running around trying to figure out where to go at one particular point, mostly my own fault, but partly because of a somewhat sadistic jump you are expected to make in between laser beams. After many tries, I assumed I needed a dash or some other power-up to make the jump and quit trying.

The game has several places where there is a very long and tedious gauntlet between save points. At least two of them had me on the verge of giving up. I have no idea why I keep paying money to put myself through this.
