Thomas was Alone

ablegamers.com
28 May 2013
  • Excerpt: “Thomas was alone.” states the soft tones of the narrator, as if beginning a whimsical children’s tale, “Wow. A weird first thought to have”. It's also a weird beginning for an abstract 2D platformer to have, but such is your introduction to Mike Bithell's first foray into the world of indie games.

  • Summary: This will, as Hercule Poirot put it, exercise the 'little grey cells', it will amuse, bemuse, maybe even confuse a little from time to time, but if you like puzzles this will most definitely entertain.

Thomas Was Alone PS3/Vita Review

Console Obsession
11 May 2013
  • Excerpt: It goes some way for storytelling when narration is able to turn simple shapes into characters. This is certainly the case with Thomas Was Alone , a popular indie game with simple but likeable visuals and music, which first appeared on PC and Mac formats last year.

Thomas Was Alone (Vita) Review

  • Summary: is a prime example of how narration can make a game great. On its own, the game is a decent platformer. However, once the narration is added in the game becomes great. If you have a Vita, give the game a look. It’s easy to pick up and enjoyable to all.

Thomas Was Alone

GamesRadar
3 May 2013
  • Excerpt: When given the right motivation, it’s easy to imagine a pile of polygons on a TV screen as an actual character. Indie title Thomas Was Alone takes that kind of projection to an experimental place, by asking players to identify with blank squares of basic color.
  • Pros: Witty writing creates characterization from nothing, Puzzle platforming that’s challenging without being frustrating, Understated but magical soundtrack
  • Cons: It’s over just as it really hits its stride, Some may find it too easy
