Trapped in between paddles for decades, you finally escape and start an adventure through a maze of dungeons. "Now it is time to take matters into your own hands and try to escape this endless torment." Although it's a simple game, the developers talk about it as a meditation on freedom in three parts - first you think you are free, then you realise your freedom has a price and finally you change your idea of freedom altogether.
The result is an ingenious game that creates a challenging and approachable platform experience with a single button. It resists the temptation to dilute this vision and sticks to its task throughout. It's a platform game about combining limited movement with an awareness of your environment.
You can play this game in the following styles:
8+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Younger players need patience to keep trying when they die. There are settings to ease this, but you still need perseverance to reach the end of the game.
One button control, when playing every controller button does the same thing. Using keyboard you only need to use the spacebar. At one point you need to press three times in a second.
As you play you pick a path that is harder, shorter, longer. If a path is too hard you can rewind and select a different one. You can also select invincibility to remove reaction pressure.
The only text is in the menus.
