Pid

 

Pid is nearly everything one could ask for it to be. An artful indie platformer, it arrives as something characteristically different from the standard indie fare. It trades in the typical existential dread for a bashful and altogether hopeful approach...

There are enough good reasons to give Pid a download. Exemplary art and music alone willfully justify the purchase. The problem is there’s a less satisfactory design there to meet it and the game never proves as interesting or provocative as...

The Xbox Live Arcade line-up doesn't have a shortage of creative platform games at the moment. Twisted Pixel's Splosion Man games – both the original and the Ms.-related follow-up – are excellent examples of classic game design, with plenty of...

Along the way, Kurt will also have access to bombs, available in two different colors. Blue bombs are quick and easy when it comes to blowing up enemies while red ones have a few seconds to sit before they blow up. Firecrackers and smoke bombs also...

Elegant, sophisticated, and erudite are normally not words I would use to describe a videogame. Most videogames push extra hard to be the exact opposite of those words - mainly because there is no elegant, sophisticated, or erudite way to explode an...

Pid is an excellent game without being aggressively in your face about it. It’s slow-paced, thoughtful, and full of quiet moments fraught with melancholy. It’s also fun, and that’s the most important thing of all.

Public transport is notoriously unreliable. Relying on a bus to turn up at all is often a gamble, and one turning up on time is a miracle. In Pid, the bus schedules will leave you more than just late for work - they haven't ran outside the city for 50...

Killing an enemy with his comrade's rocket that was meant for you.

Pid presents a wonderland of sights and sounds to those patient enough to master its maddening difficulty.

Gravity-based beam mechanic allows for creative puzzles ; Charming art style and eclectic soundtrack ; Secret rooms and discoverable tools encourage exploration

Excessively brutal difficulty, particularly in boss fights ; Cooperative mode prevents drop-in, drop-out gameplay

Kurt's trials partly arise from the traditional platforming challenge, of course, but trimming the more repetitive sequences and draining the bosses' health would have edged this effort toward the greatness enjoyed by some of its contemporary cousins....

Pid -- the all new downloadable puzzle-platformer -- is unique and stylish. Unfortunately, it's also held back by a few unavoidable issues.

Pid wants to remind us how much we used to love 2D platformers.

Pid is a clever little indie title that looks great, sounds great, and provides a decent challenge. Sure, there’s currently an almost overwhelming deluge of triple-A blockbusters due to the holiday gaming season, but don’t let that distract you from...

We check out this unique platformer for XBLA and decide if it is worth your space bucks.

Unique presentation and art style ; Fun co-op

Platforming becomes monotonous ; Frustratingly difficult boss fights
