As soon as I started playing 'And Yet It Moves' (AYIM), it was hard for me to remember why I didn't like it before.
At first glance the game wasn't astonishing but it certainly wasn't bad either. A feeling that stayed true throughout the game.
This allows the player to solve environment puzzles or jump gaps that would be otherwise impossible.
Your goal is to reach a paper portal at the end of each level to advance to the next.
There's no story, so the game's driving force is the increasing amount of puzzle concepts and craziness that AYIM offers.
They force you to experiment with momentum, rhythm, physics and objects reacting in their own way to the ever changing orientation of the world.
Towards the end of the game every level is more psychedelic than the last making for an unsuspected setting that allows the game to go even further with it's mechanics.
As much as I appreciate a unique art style I'm still not sure if I like this one, but of course that's entirely subjective and the fact that the art stays consistent throughout the changes the game goes through is impressive on its own.
Other modes include time trial, limited rotation and other variations on the main theme.
Even though the early end of the game came as a surprise to me and I would've played a couple of hours more, these extra modes weren't what I was looking for.
I'd rather spent some more time in new levels, exposing myself to more of the weirdness the people at Broken Rules invented.
If you already own this game but haven't played it, it might be a good idea to give it a go.
It's a perfect game to fill up a slow evening and it takes enough unexpected turns to keep you entertained the whole way through.
If you haven't bought it yet then take in mind the short duration of the game before spending your money. Maybe it's better to wait until another sale comes along that makes the time to cash ratio more favorable than the €8,99 it's going for at the moment.
