Thomas Was Alone Review

 

I would be friends with Thomas. Seems like a nice fellow, even if it's not… you know, a fellow.

Story got me caring about, essentially, pixels; Minimal aesthetic is detailed like crazy; Music is dreamy and lovely; Controls are tight and easy

Except that he's a block. Like I said, it's weird.

Thomas Was Alone humanizes nondescript squares, creating an affecting and satisfying adventure.

Creative storytelling with lifelike characters ; Inventive obstacles require smart coordination ; Cohesive soundtrack and visual design

Rarely offers challenge

Thomas Was Alone is a modest adventure that makes great use of its sparse elements to draw you in. In the transition to consoles, sharper controls empower you in ways that the stodgy keyboard wasn't able to, removing the slight frustrations entirely....

We check out the indie puzzle platformer Thomas Was Alone and find out that basic is great fun

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 Review

 

Thomas Was Alone is essentially a platform game. Look deeper though, and you'll see that the platformer's DNA has been spliced with a puzzler in the vein of The Lost Vikings - a game in which a team of Vikings with different abilities work in tandem to...

Nice, crisp visual style ; Brings character to quadrilaterals ; Danny Wallace does a stellar narration ; Bleepy, bloopy music

No quick select for specific characters ; Last third slightly underwhelming

Thomas Was Alone PS3/Vita Review

 

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...

Where Thomas Was Alone falters is in its lack of challenge. Most who gain a complete understanding of how the game works will breeze through the 100 puzzles in next to no time, with little to stop them in their tracks. In fact, you could say that some...

Thomas Was Alone review – don’t be a square

 

The PC indie classic comes to PlayStation Network, with the minimalist visuals hiding one of game's most memorable cast of characters.

A superbly written script that manages the impossible in terms of given character to flat coloured rectangles. Excellent visuals and music, and some clever level design

The solutions are too obvious, with little real need for exploration or any particularly expert platforming skills. The voiceover is an acquired taste

It may add up to less than the sum of its parts but in terms of storytelling and presentation this indie favourite has much to teach mega budget retail games.
