  • Excerpt: I'll be honest, when I first started playing Insanely Twisted: Shadow Planet , I just plain didn't get it. Yeah, it looked cool, but what's the point? Then, I just relaxed and let the game show itself to me, and the results were much different than I expected.

  • Conclusion: As a downloadable title, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet does very little wrong. It’s thoroughly playable and offers a few puzzles and boss battles to keep you on your toes, all whilst keeping the formula of Metroidvania intact. Sadly, it also rarely impresses, finding itself condemned to walk the ho-hum middle ground where it can be charitably described as ‘nice’ and critically labelled ‘derivative and forgettable’.

  • Excerpt: It is an easy and quick cliché to describe a game as an amalgam of two other titles, but sometimes it is the best way to convey the experience. Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet is one of these games.
  • Pros: + Amazing art style, + Fluid controls, + Great pacing, + Excellent sound design
  • Cons: Exploration is masked, Almost too many attachments

  • Excerpt: Animator Michel Gagné has a cosmic bent, as anyone who’s seen his “Prelude To Eden” short can attest, but he’s also a genius at crafting things that slither, skulk, and slink. Those two specialties combine in Fuelcell Games’ debut, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet , a beautifully rendered exploratory shooter that splices Tim Burton creepiness into the little-loved genre of NES’ Solar Jetman .
