    "Super Meat Boy is a pretty fun game but I find it a little dull personally. It is well received on steam but I find the 2D graphics and art style to be visually unappealing and the game-play isn't anything new or unique from your standard plat-former."

    "Who wants to travel to different worlds, manipulate the flow of time and be the hero by rescuing a princess. I wanted to do it all while having fun solving puzzles. I found Braid and an happy to play this game for hours of relaxation and fun."

    "Deadlight is an action adventure title from an indie developer set in the zombie apocalypse. There are many old call backs to 2D sidescrollers and other old school games mixed in the game play so it stays fresh for the player."

    "Dustforce is a cheap, indie platformer in a world full of cheap, indie platformers. While if you like cheap indie platformers, this will give you exactly that - in my book, they're a dime a dozen and this one does exactly nothing new or interesting. Pick up your old copy of Super Mario Bros. 2 - the best of the 1980s does the exact same thing this does, but a lot better. Meh!"

    "This is a great concept but I find it a little difficult. Rather than the normal and boring jumping, I get to use gravity to move my character! I found this to be a lot more fun as well as challenging!"
