  • Excerpt: Pid was a beautiful yet recognizable experience. This indie game is yet another 2-D puzzle-platformer game, which involves well-timed jumps, precise strategies and a critical thinking in order to successfully beat this game.  Pid is not some groundbreaking game, but it is good at what it does. The story centers around this little space kid who got lost while traveling on the space train.

Review: Pid is a beautiful yet underwhelming puzzle platformer that's easy to adore and difficult to enjoy

25 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Love-hate relationships are a tricky thing when it comes to video games. On the one hand, it’s very easy to become enamored with a game due to its surrealist art style and good ideas. On the other hand, sometimes it’s hard to really enjoy a game when it doesn’t deliver on all of its potential. Such is the case with Pid , an undeniably charming and clearly lovingly crafted puzzle platformer from developer Might and Delight.

  • Conclusion: If it wasn't for these frustrating moments, Pid would be a lovely mix of puzzles and platforming, making you challenge and engage your brain. Missing the bus should be the most frustrating thing you experience, but unfortunately it's not, meaning Pid is just one stop short of something great.

Review: Pid

New Gamer Nation
20 November 2012
  • Conclusion: Might and Delight ’s Pid is one of the best indie platformers in recent memory and is arguably this year’s best, depending on how you define the term ‘indie platformer’. It may not rival the tactile platforming of a game like Super Meat Boy or match the ingenious puzzle design of a game such as Braid , but Pid isn’t trying to mirror those games.

  • Conclusion: Pid is a beautiful game, and it’s incredible on paper, but a relatively minor flaw holds it back from being the best game in recent memory. It is fabulous for platforming fans, but it’s unlikely to convert anyone due to a small flaw that undermines the game’s otherwise compelling gameplay. My Rating: 7/10 – good.

Expert Review

6 November 2012
  • Summary: The next time your grandfather tries to shame you with all that talk about how he once had to trudge through 10 miles of snow just to get home from school, you could try countering him with the tale of poor little Kurt from Pid. For Kurt, heading home entails abandoning the safety of Earth, taking a spaceship that trades off passengers as often as a city bus, and at last making his way across a troubled planet just to reach the next bus stop.
  • Pros: Gravity-based beam mechanic allows for creative puzzles, Charming art style and eclectic soundtrack, Secret rooms and discoverable tools encourage exploration
  • Cons: Excessively brutal difficulty, particularly in boss fights, Cooperative mode prevents drop-in, drop-out gameplay

Pid review

2 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Pid tells the story of Kurt, a small boy who must make his way back home after he gets separated from his classmates and ends up on an unknown planet. What he doesn’t realize is that the planet is in distress and finding its salvation is his only means home. Pid’s charming worlds draw you in, but their demanding mechanics of classic platforms make them equally as strenuous to play.
  • Pros: Inventive puzzles and level design, Moving narrative, Powerful and clever soundtrack
  • Cons: Strenuous difficulty, Frustrating health system, Lack of drop-in/drop-out co-op

Retro Platformer Sticks Too Close To Its Roots

Game Informer
31 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Concept: Infuse a devilishly tough platformer with a cutie-pie presentation Graphics: Striking, stylized visuals are a high point; it’s too bad Kurt is a hazy little blob in an otherwise impressive world Sound: Pid has one the best soundtracks of the year, spanning a variety of genres and instrumentation — including a clever tune centered on sounds from a restaurant kitchen Playability: The concept has promise, but you see everything Kurt’s gravity-altering ability has...
