Hi, people! Today I bring to you the review for another indie game that I liked SO MUCH, it's called "Braid".
I will start by the fact that this is a puzzles game (genre I fucking love) with a platformer movement style. Its more important in-game aspect is that you can, in a way, control time. If you die, you have to press Z (in a computer, but it is available in XBox 360 too), and go back to where you were alive, and act differently. It sound pretty cool, but that's not all of it. Every stage you go through will have a different variable factor that adds complexity and makes the player have to rethink the possibilities he/she has.
This aspect of the game makes it very addictive and fun....and HARD. Oh, and if you want even MORE difficulty, you can try to get the stars. I won't say anything more about those. :P
Its graphics are somewhat childish but wonderfully done. Most of it is made in watercolors, and every background is animated. Looks like a lot of effort was spent in this aspect. The music is VERY appropiated. The OST contains not many songs, but they are just perfect for this game, being all peaceful and calm. This helps a lot when you are trying to solve a puzzle.
The story is really confusing. Even having played it two times I can't tell for sure what the story was. It has a wide range of possible interpretations, but it is interesting. You can even learn a thing or two about life. =P
Something funny about it, also, is that it has a lot of elements from Mario, as satires. In fact the game's name is all about the princess, which is what the main character, Tim, looks for.
Whew! I finished! I hope you like my review, and I hope you like Braid, because I enjoyed a lot playing it. =P
